A Little Braver.

This song from k-drama Uncontrollably Fond has been stuck in my head on and off ever since I first heard it over four weeks ago. This song is eerily beautiful and haunting, and always sends chills down my spine with every listen. Even though the song is a bit grey and melancholic, the lyrics give that little glimmer of hope for the future, making the song perfect to listen to if you’re feeling down and need a pick-me-up.

Oh and what do you know, today marks five years with this blog! Happy Sunday.

Darkness Within.

Earlier in the week I spent the day catching up on Suits (I’m so excited that it’s back!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and it’s better than ever! The first episode takes place a few hours after the end of season five, and though it was quite predictable, I loved seeing the gang together and the soundtrack throughout was amazing – as usual. This song played at the end of the first episode and it fit so well with the dramatic, tense ending.

I can’t wait to see how the rest of this season will pan out. Happy Sunday.

Back To The Start.

OMG JUST LISTENING TO THIS SONG AGAIN GIVES ME CHILLS! Who else watched the HTGAWM season finale this week? Wasn’t it just everything and more you could ever possibly ask for? This song played towards the end of the episode when Annalise was breaking it down for the D.A. (spoiler alert) and it was the best thing ever – there’s really nothing I love more than when Annalise shows people who think they’ve got her backed into a corner, whose boss. The whole explanation of how season’s events gave me chills on chills on chills, and it was partly because of this song. It’s haunting, mysterious and a bit sinister while also being nonchalant and cool. Oh and don’t even get me started on the instrumentals. That violin/cello/ string instrumental in the beginning is simply KILLER and when the other instruments come in later – GOLD! Andrea Wasse’s voice on this track is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL and I could listen to this song all day long… (And in fact I think I will).

This song is a MUST listen! It’s amazing. Happy Sunday.

Insomnia.

Part of me feels really lazy in regards to this post, but then the other part of me understands (and hopes that if you watched this week’s HTGAWM that you’ll also understand) just how few words are needed to describe this song. So, if you do nothing else today, make sure you watch the last five minutes of HTGAWM, or at the very least, make sure you listen to this song…

…and I’m sorry if it leaves you feeling wrecked. Great job IAMX and happy Sunday!

Judgement Day.

I couldn’t find the song I wanted for today’s Soundtrack, but have no fear because I have something just as great for you guys to listen to. If you’ve been watching Suits recently you’ll know of Mike’s legal trouble regarding him being a fraud (read more about that here) and how his lack of a Harvard law degree has finally caught up with him. The lyrics go perfectly with the storyline and I’m surprised the music supervisors for the show were able to find such a perfectly fitting song. The song (and storyline) is also a reminder that everything you do catches up with you eventually, so it’s best to live a good a life as you can because you never know what you might get.

Happy Sunday!

All We Do.

I’m not 100% sure why I chose this song to be today’s Soundtrack. It’s eerie, gives me the shivers, and makes me feel slightly uncomfortable – although that could all be down to where I first heard the song. This song played at the end of Thursday’s Elementary, which I was already having trouble understanding. I wouldn’t even know where to begin explaining. In short, this girl “Casey” pretended to be Mina Davenport, a girl who had been abducted ten years ago, and killed an FBI agent who was looking into old case files and was close to figuring out she was a fraud. I didn’t do a good job of explaining, but I guess that’s all the more reason for you to watch it. Anyway, this song played at the end of the episode when Sherlock was talking to Casey and it really creeped me out ergo how this song weirdly became today’s Soundtrack.

Aside from the creepiness I feel every time this song plays, I’ve had it on repeat for a few hours and I love it. This song is definitely worth a listen (or several) so make sure you check it out!

Happiness.

If you watched the season premiere of How to Get Away With Murder (don’t worry I’m not going to start talking about it) you’ll recognise this song from the end scene when Annalise and co. are raving it up in a basement club. Also, if you’ve read this blog before, you’ll recognise Chris Corner’s unique and vivid voice from a few music posts. The song features those classic IAMX vibes and like most of their songs, once I’ve listened to it, I’m left in a trance, pondering about the universe and all the things that are wrong with the world. This is definitely a song for you if you’re looking for some deep-pensive thought time.

Make sure you check out the song and next week’s HTGAWM. Happy Sunday.
