Humble And Kind.

When I heard this song for the first time the other day, it had me in tears. Not only do the lyrics serve as a brilliant reminder to treat people well (something I know I’m guilty of not always doing) and to always strive to be the best version of yourself that you can be, but Tim’s voice is something else. His deep, husky tone sends chills down your spine and it really feels like these are words he is saying from the bottom of his heart – you can even imagine the words of the song being what he tells his children from time to time. This song is perfect if you’re in a reflective mood or feel like you could do with a pep talk.

Happy Sunday.

Hell On Heels.

This has been one of my favourite country songs for a few years now. Although it’s slow, kind of heavy and a little dark at times, I still find the song to be fun, badass (it makes me feel bad… in a good way 😉 ) and extremely addictive; and I regularly get it stuck in my head. Case in point, I randomly found myself humming this song a few weeks ago which then lead to me listening to it on repeat for about four hours – I kid you not. Today happens to be another day where I’ve found myself singing the chorus and heading over to iTunes to listen to it.

It’s been a few years since the Pistol Annies released any new music, but I’m hoping they’ll have a comeback soon. Give the song a listen. Happy Sunday.

Fighter.

As the year draws to a close it’s hard to not look back over the past ten months – at the ups and the downs, the trials and the tribulations – and feel a wave of emotion. From what I’ve gathered from twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and basically every social media platform, 2016 has been challenging (for whatever reason) for most of us. At times it’s been hard to see the light at the end of the very long and very dark tunnel; it’s been hard to keep hope; and for a lot of us all we need is that sign that everything will be okay in the end. When I first heard this song I was so moved by it and its message of not giving up and fighting on, that I knew I just had to share it as today’s Soundtrack.

If you’re looking for a sign or for hope, this song is definitely it. Happy Sunday!

Across The Oceans.

Like last week’s Soundtrack, today’s also comes from Uncontrollably Fond. While the drama wasn’t the best I’ve seen (the last two episodes in particular were a bit of a let-down), the soundtrack was really good and worth a listen. I’ve had this song on repeat for the last few days, and it’s perfect if you’re looking for a song with good vibes and full of refreshing energy – perfect for starting the new week.

Oh and if you’re looking for something new to watch, why not check out Falling For Innocence? Happy Sunday.

The Wolves.

Today’s Soundtrack is taking a little break from all the country I’ve been sharing lately. It’s been a while since my hubs aka Ben Howard’s released any new music/ has been on the blog/ I’ve listened to any of his songs, but the other day I got suddenly got the urge to listen to his songs. ‘The Wolves’, from his debut album Every Kingdom, has always been a favourite of mine, and I’m actually very surprised I haven’t shared it on here before. So what better song to share when I’m in this Ben Howard mood?


I don’t know when Ben’ll next be releasing something, but I really hope it’s soon. In the meantime, I’ll just have to keepy Every Kingdom, The Burgh Island and I Forgot Where We Were on repeat. Happy Sunday.

Pick Up.

I’m still listening to Dierk’s latest album, Black, and I fall more and more in love with it with every listen. Like I’ve said before, this album is very mellow and easy to listen to, but one thing that struck me the first time I listened to it (and every time I listen to it), is that the album is quite dark and broody – even the fun and romantic songs. There’s something melancholic and heart-breaking about every song which adds to the album’s charms. Today’s Soundtrack is the second song from the album, and it’s all about getting that special someone to pick up their phone, with a splash of romantical bits here and there.

Make sure you check out the song, and I’ll be sharing more songs from the album in the coming weeks. Happy Sunday.
