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 Home.

Doesn’t the beginning instrumental sound like something you’d hear in a Western? Question of the day: do you ever have those days where you feel great but are in the mood for some melancholic music? To answer the question for myself, I definitely do and in fact today just so happens to be one of those days. This song played in last week’s episode of Elementary (which I only watched last night and explains why it’s been in my head/ how I’ve managed to remember it) and there’s something about the music I can’t shake. I love that despite being in such a great mood and looking outside at the equally gorgeous sunshine, there’s nothing I’d rather listen to right now than something grey and gloomy. The video is also visually STUNNING and calming and just all-round perfect. This song is definitely worth a listen so make sure you check it out.

Major sidebar: I can’t be the only one who’s a little thrown by the fact NBC moved Elementary to Sundays, right? 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!

Unwritten.

Earlier this week I randomly decided to re-watch my ALL TIME FAVOURITE SHOW, The Hills. As I watched my favourites go about their lives in LA, it suddenly hit me that I am the same age (or there abouts) as the cast was at the time of filming, and it made me appreciate their experiences more as I was finally able to understand their stories from a peer standpoint. When the show first aired, I was in my early to mid-teens and looking back at the old episodes I realised that I had learnt so much about life, boys, relationships, friendships, careers and more without even noticing (all of which I’m hoping to compile a big list of). That being said however, one of the biggest things I learnt from the show came from the theme tune sang by Natasha Bedingfield. As the theme played at the beginning of every episode for almost half a decade, I subconsciously learnt that when it comes to life, anything can happen. Sometimes the things you thought were a done deal turn out to evaporate into thin air before your eyes, leaving you devastated and confused; but sometimes the most unexpected things can happen and you find yourself feeling so blessed and on top of the world. And that’s the beauty about life. Anything can happen, and if you’re at a crossroad in life, it’s important to understand that your future is still unwritten and as clichéd as it sounds, you can make it anything you want. If listening to today’s soundtrack doesn’t fill you with hope, I don’t know what will.

Make sure you keep an eye out for that list I was talking about. And don’t forget, it doesn’t matter where you are in life now because the rest is still unwritten. 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!

Anyway.

So Suits is finally back which means you can expect half of the soundtrack to end up here on any given Sunday hahahahahaha. The mid-season premiere was filled with just as much drama as the mid-season finale last year and it had me on the edge of my seat. I won’t go into too much detail about the episode because I have a post coming in the next couple of days, where I talk about some of my favourite things about the episode. So anyway, this song played at the end of the episode and OMG the feels I felt. It was really emotional, and after an hour of not knowing what would happen and feeling conflicted about Mike (i.e. technically he is a criminal, but because we know him, he doesn’t quite seem like a total criminal), this song acted like the perfect emotional release. Daniel’s voice is hauntingly heavenly and this song is definitely worth a listen!

Oh and before I forget; if you want to try your luck at winning up to £500 to spend at farfetch.com, there’s still time to play their ‘Guess the Designer’ game. Happy Sunday!
