Her Name Was April - Monthly Music Picks
Monday, 1 May 2017
I mean don't get me wrong I still have 12 weeks of university and placements left, but for the most part I am done with second year haha. So back to regular blogging (we hope) - if you fancy reading about why student nurses make the worst bloggers read my day in the life of a student nurse.
As it's the 1st of May and continuing my monthly music picks, here my April listens and if you understand the reference in my playlist name - you are brilliant. (If not, you're still cool don't worry). This month was busy as hell, and we all know music is the only way to get through hell..
1. Pleaser - Wallows
If you have Netflix, and you've not been living under a rock for a month then you'll know that 13 Reasons Why is a thing. That guy Clay Jensen? Yeah, the actor who plays him has a band. I know right, who knew ha? But this is a pretty good song (surprisingly)
2. Lust for Life - Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd
As a scroll through the charts, just to see if theres anything worth listening to more than once, I came across Lana Del Rey's new song. And I've never really been a fan to be honest, a few of my friends were obsessed with her in school and I couldn't stand her. I guess I've either gotten over my annoyance of her or this is a good song (you decide..)
Right, so the next 4 songs are on my playlist because my favourite musical went on it's 20th anniversary tour this year - RENT. And oh wow it was incredible. Even though I could have added the entire soundtrack I've picked my favourites (hard choices), which also seem to be the most dramatic ones haha.
3. Seasons of Love - RENT
4. I'll Cover You - RENT
5. La Vie Boheme - RENT
6. Take Me or Leave Me - RENT
As I mentioned earlier, 13 Reasons Why came out on Netflix this month. It's intense but so so amazing, as with every other series I watched it all in a couple days - binge watching is key to the survival of students. And yes, Selena Gomez was producer of this, who would have guessed! Her version of Only You is creeeepy though.
7. Only You - Selena Gomez
8. Into The Black - Chromatic
9. Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division
10. The Stand - The Alarm
A short playlist this month because of the intense month that I just had, but don't fear, highly exciting adventures to come in May. Follow me on Spotify with the link at the top if you like!
