Someone out of Town

Falling in love remotely is something I'm definitely not foreign to. I didn't have as much apprehension about meeting a "stranger" as I probably should have but... I didn't die. Maybe it's because I'm a guy or maybe because I'm naive. Doesn't matter now.

This week's SSSSS feature is the enchanting Yuna and her song Someone Out of Town. An artist I may or may not possibly have a crush on.

Higher Love

Who reads this stuff?
Now this right here is a cover! The original may have been right for the time and is a fun upbeat track but this version transcends it (in my humble opinion, of course).

This week's Soft Sweet Slow Song Sunday feature is James Vincent McMorrow's cover of Steve Winwood's 'Higher Love'. McMorrow slows it down and tenderizes it. Kudos to the Irishman.

Why no, there isn't a 'love' theme

You Make Me Want to Sing About Love

Butterflies and ting

Smitten, wanting to sing  on sight. So completely enamored and everybody tells you to hold your horses, you're going too fast. That's the gist of today's ear candy.

This week's Soft Sweet Slow Song Sunday features Rumer and her single Slow. A song about butterflies, that gives me butterflies.

Oh lawd, easy jazz

Lonely vs Alone

You know what's the worst kind of loneliness? My guess is that it's the loneliness of an introvert. The loneliness of someone who can feel alone in a crowd. The sad thing is that the introvert tends to steadily build a wall around them, so if one starts digging themselves into a lonely hole, they might start to lose themselves.

The solution: learn how to be alone again. Yes, you're there already but you're doing it wrong. If you learn to be content with yourself, you'd be surprised at how those walls will break down. They'll deteriorate and fall because you won't need them anymore. You'll rise from that hole and you'll learn how to be happy with yourself alone and be happy with yourself alone, in a crowd.

You're never alone in being alone

Holidays are for Us


Another Sunday, another song. And yes, there is no video this week, you shall not be spoiled!. It just happened that the other songs I wanted to share conveniently had good music videos.

This week I'm sharing Lips and her song "Everything to Me". Reminding us that a holiday is even more important when you share your life with someone. Happy Sunday.

Nope. Got nothin'

What's in the Box?!

I leave hidden messages for all of you followers.

Just a Band released another music video! It's actually a collaboration for BLNRB, a project between artistes from the Berlin and Nairobi music scene with the video made by Just a Band. 

The real story seems guarded by the creators but features a mysterious concealed object much like Pulp Fiction or Se7en. The female aggressor and the Chinese(?) fusion even seems Tarantino-esue. If anybody could provide a translation(please) maybe a bit more of the story could be revealed.

It's a few months old and they actually released one more since then but I've been playing it on repeat recently so why not feature it for this week's Soft Sweet Slow Song Sunday. Plus it was uploaded on my birthday last year so that was pretty awesome. Anyway, Happy New Year!

Tell ME!
