playlist / ranting about the songs i discovered in february!
I feel like February was a pretty good month for music. I discovered some really good songs, and even a couple new bands! If there’s anything that I love more than reading, it’s listening to my favorite songs – and even better is when I discover a new song that I love.
Here’s a list of some of my favorites that I discovered last month!
FEBruary 2020 songs
YUMMY by Fame on Fire.
YES, a cover. And yes, I’ve heard the original by Justin Bieber (I’m sorry, but it’s terrible 😆). And so is this version, BUT it’s been a stupid kind of catchy that I couldn’t shake from my brain. 🤪 → “Standing up, keep me on the rise. Lost control of myself, I’m compromised. You’re incriminated, no disguise.”
UNDER WATER / ON FIRE by Vanish. This song was in my “For You” playlist on Apple Music, and I just really liked it. The pre-chorus is my favorite part of the song. ❤️ → “You look just like an angel, just like a fable. The way that you love me is so unreal. You look just like an angel, just like an angel, just like an angel.”
IN THE DARK by Breathe Carolina. I never really listened to Breathe Carolina, but I noticed there was a new album and I took a listen to it. This was my favorite from all the ones I listened to. Very electronic, very catchy. → “I’m in the dark, in the dark. I fall apart, fall apart. I can’t take much more of chasing your ghost, in the dark, in the dark.”
THE END OF THE GAME by Weezer.
Weezer is releasing a new album?! I heard this when I was working out in the gym one night, and was surprised to see it was a Weezer song. I saved it in my library and listened to it a lot in February. → “I feel like I’ve known you my whole life. You got me cryin’ like when Aslan died. Now you’re gone. The melody can’t find you, I’m incomplete without you. I guess we’ve reached the end of the game.”
THE ANSWER by Fight the Fade.
Definitely my favorite of the month! I love the message of the song, and the chorus is badasssss! It makes me want to check out their other music, but I just haven’t yet. → “And that’s where I go, when I need to clear my mind. That’s where I go, to escape place and time.”
BREAK YOUR HEART by The Gaslight Anthem. This is a slow song that I just really loved the sound of. It doesn’t get any deeper than that!
→ “And oh, my my, it would break your heart, if you knew how I loved you, if I showed you my scars. If I played you my favorite song lying here, in the dark. Oh my my, it would break your heart.”
Last month’s favorite: My favorite was “The Answer” by Fight the Fade, but I definitely had the “Yummy” cover stuck in my head for several days, and also Weezer’s newest, “The End of the Game.”
