Music Monday – Harry Styles: Sign of the Times

I’m going to confess something here. I was shocked and amazed and completely speechless after watching Harry Styles’ performance on Saturday Night Live a week or so ago. His song Sign of the Times has been stuck in my head ever since. As I was working on this post and went to grab the clip from SNL for today, I found the following performance from a few days ago and decided to use it instead.

I honestly don’t know what it it is, but I’m in love with this song. I truly am. And his personality on stage singing makes the song that much more addictive to me.

I wasn’t a One Direction fan. I knew some songs, but not many. I liked the ones I knew, but I wouldn’t say I was a fan by any stretch. I can, however, definitely see myself being a Harry Styles fan if the rest of his solo album is as soulful as this particular song.

Music Monday – Lady Gaga: Million Reasons

I’ve been listening to a lot of different music lately. And when I say different, I mean, I’m all over the place. I haven’t gotten crazy, but I’ve been stepping into alternate comfort zones with what I’m listening to and what I’m searching for…

Lady Gaga is one of those alternates and differents for me and I’m really enjoying a lot of her music, the older stuff and her new stuff. Her range, her presence, her personality, her fearlessness, her incredible depth and talent…

There are multiple performances of this song and it was hard to pick just one to share, but I did it… I went with the official video.

Music Monday – ZZ Ward: Last Love Song

I’m going through a weird sad song phase right now, so… It’s possible that for the next few weeks you’ll see sad song videos… And it’s likely going to be reflected in some new writing…

Just warnin’ ya…

Now this girl’s voice… Oh my… It’s different, soulful. And the lyrics are heart breaking… The music builds on itself. And I’m so in love with it.

Music Monday – Miranda Lambert: Vice

I am in love with this song… I love her in general. But I am in love with this song, have listened to it dozens of times in several days, and it has sparked an idea…

I’ll let you know if it develops into something… But for now, have a listen and have a good Monday.

Music Monday – Duran Duran: Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)

33 years and 2 days ago, I saw Duran Duran in concert for the first time and fell in love with them. I mean, I was already in love with them, but seeing them live and in person solidified the love affair for years to come…

That love is still very much alive and well. They’ve continued to record new music and innovate and be a force to reckon with. I will love them always. But, nostalgia has hit me rather hard lately and I’ve plunged headlong into my teenage years…

This is a cover they did and this show is from 1982 when they were still young and it just always makes me think I’m 14 again and I want to dance and sing the house down…

Do you have songs that bring that out in you?
