Without You - Michelle Lee (이미쉘)

A beautiful, soulful voice, and a beautiful video from one of the few Black-Korean artists out there in homogeneous Korea. I hope she makes it big, cause she sure as hell deserves it and has the talent for it.

Ain't It Fun

Ain’t it fun
Living in the real world
Ain’t it good
Being all alone

Where you’re from
You might be the one who’s running things
Well you can ring anybody’s bell and get what you want
See it’s easy to ignore trouble
When you’re living in a bubble

Seriously, college graduations should be playing this song at commencement instead of Graduation (Friends Forever). The quarter’s being flying by really fast, and there’s only 4 months left of undergraduate studies. Forever. I can’t wait for school to be done, but at the same time, I don’t want commencement to come, because it may inevitably mean leaving some friends and memories in sunny San Diego and stepping into the adult world of responsibilities. Like getting a job, and finding an apartment, and budgeting your own money so you can survive, and moving,and cleaning up after your own shit. Or move back home as a safety and save money, but lose all freedom. So either way, it’s really a lose-lose situation.

I think the scariest part of post-grad life is the moving part. For me, I want to live in a big city, and I will gladly relocate to any (decent, relevant) job that takes me, but it scares me to leave behind familiarity only to be thrust into a foreign environment. Like how do you find an apartment to live on your own in a new city, or how do you make friends when people may not even be around your age? Because in school and college, we grow up and live around our peers, which makes it all that easier to meet acquaintances and friends. Can I just never grow up and be like Peter Pan, except slightly more mature?

How do you do it, you got me losing every breath.
What did you give me, to make my heart beat out my chest

I feel we’re close enough.
I wanna lock in your love.
I think we’re close enough.
Could I lock in your love?

-Sam Smith, Latch (Acoustic)

Beautiful acoustic rendition of Disclosure’s original version featuring Sam Smith. Apparently they’re gonna release the original song to radio stations sometime this January. A year and a half after it first debuted.

Wasted

Was it all wasted? 
All we did to survive? 
If we cut split and run now 
at least we can say that we tried 

Was it all wasted? 
Trying to keep hope alive? 
Or maybe God was listening to 
every single prayer that we cried.

-Tim be Told, Wasted

It’s been a while since they released something. The guitar riff in the chorus is simply beautiful. Something about this song speaks to me but I can’t put my finger on it.

Catchy song. Damn, this girl is a total badass, literally fighting her way through to mend her broken/stolen heart. She’s a main character, Asian, and a strong woman.

Hvor Ondt Det Gør

Ved du hvor ondt det gør?
Tårer der løber hele natten
Løbe så langt, langt væk fra dig

Do you know how it hurts?
Tears that run all night
Run as far, far away from you


-Svenstrup & Vendelboe feat. Josephine, Hvor Ondt Det Gør
These DJ’s are amazing with sick beats, but almost every released single from them is a song with really sad lyrics set to a super happy beat. Like this song makes you wanna and then you look up the translation and it’s about a girl who gets hurt from a cheating ex and rhetorically asks him if he knows how much he had hurt her. Let’s totally party and dance to this!
They also finally came out with a debut album this month, but they’re not well-known enough outside of Denmark to have the album out for download illegally.

Never really had luck, couldn’t ever figure out / How to love, how to love

Been on repeat for the past few hours mostly cause of the smooth vocals. Regardless of whoever sings it, this song seems to always be mesmerizing and raw.

More Danish music.

My favorite line:
“Fordi du tager mig tættere på himlen.”
Because you bring me closer to heaven.

SUNLIGHT

J-R&B throwback and new songs. JAY’ED - Sunlight.
I love this song. It’s about cities. Sorta. And hope. Mostly hope. Thanks to EC for translating this for me :D
This song imagery kinda reminds me of the slide I did for Awaken Humanity.
