Things I Love #2 - My Top 3 Songs

If you didn't see the Things I Love #1 post, you can read it here.

Some of you may know that I find it difficult to wear headphones on the bus or in public lately (it's a weird thing to do with people judging my breathing) and, as such, the only time I really listen to music is getting ready in the morning, in the bath/shower or in bed at night. As such, my music taste has grown and adapted to the new situations, gone are the screamo bands that blocked out the cackling of children and in are love songs and acoustic covers. As I've been listening to new music, I thought I'd share my top 3 songs with you at the moment.

Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran

"I will be loving you until we're seventy, and baby my heart could still fall as hard at twenty three."

I know I'm not the only person in love with this song right now, but given that my last love was a music video based around a dance, it seemed appropriate to start with this. Although the song in itself is so completely, undeniably beautiful, the video is unbelievably captivating, and there's something so lovely about seeing Ed Sheeran laugh at himself doing it.  If you haven't watched it, go and do that now (and keep watching it over and over and falling in love, if you're anything like me.) My one wish is that the radio station I listen to in work didn't play this every third song, I don't want it ruined for me by overplaying!

Stolen Dance - Milky Chance

"I want you, and we can bring it on the floor, you've never danced like this before."

I honestly don't know what it is about this song that I love so much, but I do. It's actually a sort of really sad love song at it's core, or that's how I've always seemed to perceive it, but the name makes me think of all of those scenes in TV shows where characters have danced together and then had to tear themselves away to go back to real life (Chuck and Blair, anyone? Or am I talking rubbish?) This is a song that needs a lot more recognition as it's actually gorgeous.

"If the heavens ever did speak, she's the last true mouthpiece."

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know how underrated I think this song is in the UK right now. This starts slow and then builds into something a lot more dramatic and, as good as it sounds now, I can't wait to hear an inevitably brilliant remix of this in the near future. The lyrics of this are worth paying attention to, and there's something really striking about it. It was used as the soundtrack to a video based around the abuse happening against the gay community in Russia, which went viral overnight; not only a great song, but it's helping make such a profound impact for such a worthwhile cause.

What are your favourite songs at the moment? Be sure to leave me some to check out!
