Songs I Have Been Listening To Recently

Hi! :)

My music taste has changed a lot throughout the last couple of months and I caught myself enjoying genres that I hadn’t really been into before. You’ll probably see that in this list as well if you’re familiar with my other ‘Songs Of the Month’ posts on here. I have been listening to K-Pop non-stop since the end of last year, which also opened up a whole new world for me music-wise, and unknowingly pushed me to listen to a lot more hip-hop songs, too.

Here is the long list of tunes I’ve loved and listened to lately, obviously without any particular order:

  1. Feels – Calvin Harris feat. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean
  2. Don’t Wanna Fall In Love – Kyle
  3. Okey Dokey – MINO & Zico
  4. Man Of the Year – Leroy Sanchez
  5. Feel It Still – Portugal. The Man
  6. Keeping Your Head Up – Birdy (Don Diablo Remix)
  7. Faking It – Calvin Harris feat. Kehlani & Lil Yachty
  8. Came Here For Love – Sigala feat. Ella Eyre
  9. The Devil You Know – X Ambassadors
  10. Secrets – The Weeknd
  11. Slide – Calvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean & Migos
  12. Walls Could Talk – Halsey
  13. HUMBLE. – Kendrick Lamar
  14. I Like Me Better – Lauv
  15. Monster – EXO
  16. Dilemma – Homme
  17. Eureka – Zico feat. Zion.T
  18. Heaven In Hiding – Halsey
  19. There For You – Martin Garrix feat. Troye Sivan
  20. CRZY – Kehlani

Sorry for the overload, I know it’s a lot, but there’s even more – which I won’t bore you with haha. Let me know if you like any of these songs, I’d love to know! :D

Have a wonderful day!

Songs Of The Month | January

Hi! :)

I haven’t done one of these in a while and I miss them! So now, here I am with all of my favourite songs that I listened to throughout January – although not necessarily new tracks. Also, they are not in any particular order! :)

  1.  Party Monster – The Weeknd
  2.  Cool Girl – Tove Lo
  3.  All Time Low – Jon Bellion
  4.  Final Song – MØ
  5.  Jealous – Labrinth
  6.  Woke The F*ck Up – Jon Bellion (Acoustic)
  7.  Move Your Body – Sia (Single Mix)
  8.  Shape Of You – Ed Sheeran
  9.  Human – Jon Bellion (Acoustic)
  10.  Castle On The Hill – Ed Sheeran
  11.  Desire – Years & Years ft. Tove Lo
  12.  I Feel It Coming – The Weeknd

That’s it. I know it’s a bit longer than usual, but I genuinely listened to all of them a lot. As you can see, I discovered Jon Bellion last month and listend to him quite a bit. I can’t believe that I only found out about him this year, it’s insane! He is really great and talented, check him out if you haven’t heard of him yet!

As usual, I’m in love with both of Ed Sheeran’s new songs, they are amazing. I also had a bit of a throwback session with Labrinth, Tove Lo and MØ songs, which felt so good.

This is all for now. Let me know what your favourite songs of January were! See you soon! :)

Songs Of The Month – August

Hi! :)

I know I have been very inconsistent lately, but I recently moved to Denmark to start university here, so it has taken over my life to be honest. Everything is great so far though. :)

I haven’t done a ‘Songs Of The Month’ post in a while and I felt like sharing my favourites at the moment with you. So here they are! (They aren’t in any particular order, as usual.)

  1. Cool Girl – Tove Lo
  2. Season 2 Episode 3 – Glass Animals
  3. Tears – Clean Bandit feat. Louisa Johnson
  4. We Don’t Talk Anymore – Charlie Puth feat. Selena Gomez
  5. Alive – Khai
  6. Sexual – NEIKED
  7. Worship – Years & Years
  8. Rise – Katy Perry
  9. Fake It – Bastille
  10. Cane Shuga – Glass Animals

I’m obsessing over the new Glass Animals album, ‘How To Be A Human Being’, which came out yesterday, so that’s why there are two songs on this list off of that album. Even though there could haven been more too, haha. I love it, you should check it out! It’s on Spotify and iTunes as well.

I’m in love with all of these songs on the list though, I can’t stop listening to them, seriously! What has been your fave song of August? Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter (@justkingablog)! See you soon! :)

My Favourites Of The Eurovision Song Contest

Hi!:)

Since it’s Eurovision Song Content week right now, I thought I’d do a blog post on my favourite songs from it. ESC is a song contest in Europe and as of last year in Australia as well, where each country has a representative performer, and they compete for the best song of the year. The semi-finals are already over, and the final is on Saturday, which I’m very excited about.

My absolute favourites are Hungary and France this year, but I have heard some other nice songs as well. So here you go, here are the countries I’m rooting for this Saturday, and obviously these are not in any particular order.

  1. Hungary
  2. Cyprus
  3. The Netherlands
  4. UK
  5. France
  6. Azerbaijan
  7. Malta
  8. Israel
  9. Australia

But I also like Croatia, Latvia, Serbia, Lithuania, Spain, Bulgaria and Belgium.

Which songs do you like the most? Let me know in the comments below! Have a great day! See you soon! :)

Songs Of The Month – March

Hi! :)

It’s SO crazy that April is already here! Final exams are just in a month, which I’m terrified of, but I’ll do great I decided. I have to have a lot more confidence, don’t I? Anyway, here I am with the songs I listened to the most throughout March. I love this list, because almost all tunes are by my favourite artists. I’m still getting used to Zayn’s new music, and some of MAX’s stuff I don’t really like (however, he is extremely talented), but the songs of theirs on the list I like a lot. iT’s YoU is probably my favourite song of ZAYN’s album, Mind Of Mine (which I did a blog post on), and I also caught myself getting back to the song called Lights Down Low by MAX, because I love its vibe. All the others in my top 10 belong to my favourite artists, so it’s not surprising that some of their tunes are on the list. Finally, here they are (not in any particular order, as usual).

  1. Breathe Life – Jack Garratt
  2. iT’s YoU – Zayn
  3. Soundcheck – Catfish and the Bottlemen
  4. Unsteady – X Ambassadors (Live on Seth Meyers)
  5. Work Song – Hozier
  6. The Sound – The 1975
  7. Fragile – Kygo & Labirinth
  8. Far Cry – Jack Garratt
  9. Lights Down Low – MAX
  10. Black Water Lilies – AURORA

Mind Of Mine – ZAYN (Album)

Hi! :)

As you all probably know, Zayn Malik quit One Direction a year ago. His first solo album was released on 25th March, and there was a huge hype around it. I thought it would be fun to tell you which songs I like the most from the album.

Zayn’s new music is definitely different from what he was involved in for years. I’m not sure if I am a fan of this style of music, but it’s not a bad album at all. I’m sure he will be pretty successful on his own (he already is to be honest), too, because his tunes are very likable and catchy. I enjoy listening to his music a lot though, especially to the songs that are my favourite. The release date is a bit ironic, because that’s the exact date of when he left the band last year. The album cover is a picture of him from his childhood plus some of his current tattoos edited on him. The capitalization of the song titles is very unique and kind of reminds me of Margo Roth Spiegelman‘s from Paper Towns. Here are the songs, my favourites being highlighted.

35b1058f9ccfc69ddaadd33eee29c6c2-960x960x1

  1. MiNd Of MiNdd (Intro)
  2. PILLOWTALK
  3. iT’s YoU
  4. BeFoUr
  5. sHe
  6. dRuNk
  7. INTERMISSION: fLoWer
  8. rEaR vIeW
  9. wRoNg ft. Kehlani
  10. fOol fOr YoU
  11. BoRdErSz
  12. tRuTh
  13. lUcOzAdE
  14. TiO
  15. BLUE
  16. BRIGHT
  17. LIKE I WOULD
  18. SHE DON’T LOVE ME
  19. PILLOWTALK – the living room session
  20. PILLOWTALK REMIX ft. Lil Wayne and Jaegen

I feel like looking at my most preferred songs of the album, I’m leaning more towards the slower-paced songs, which usually isn’t like me. My absolute favourites are iT’s YoU and fOol fOr YoU, they both sound amazing and beautiful. Which song do you like the most from Mind Of Mine? Let me know in the comments below! You can listen to this album on Spotify or you can buy it on iTunes. See you soon! :)
