Song of the Day: I Was Here by Beyonce

Whew chile, this album changed the game for me in relationship to Beyonce. And changed my sense of what it could mean to be a powerful black woman. Perhaps that’s cheesy, but gatdamn. This song still makes me well up.

“I just want them to know that I gave my all, did my best, brought someone some happiness. Left this world a little better just because… I was here.”

Song of the Day: Solo by Frank Ocean

Damn if I don’t play this song at least once every time I try to write anything. It took me admittedly too long to admire the beauty of Blonde because Channel Orange had so changed my relationship to myself that even after waiting what seemed like a million years for new Frank, when it finally came around I wasn’t sure what to do. But finally, let’s give it it’s due. This song staggers me.

Song of the Day: Pass the Vibes by Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment

Y'all know I love Chance The Rapper. So obviously I was ecstatic when he dropped Surf this last week. And the number of times I've listened to the album since is too many to count. It really is such a freaking delight.

But this song is one of my absolute favorites. I want to play the vibrophone.


May 4th-June 1st

I was negligent in May. 

If you're wondering what I was listening to, it was country music. And it was great. I'm sure some of those songs will show up here later. Have no doubts. But I was a bad blog owner in May. And as such fell off on my daily songs. 

So here's one, for most of the month of May, which turned out to be a pretty eventful month.

Song of the month: Keep On by Eric Church

This is not reflective on my life state, it is just a song I rediscovered my love for this past month.

Song of the Day: No Surprises by Radiohead

There shouldn't have to be a reason. But the reason it's coming up now is that I realized recently that I listened to this song so much for a period of my life that my mom now regularly says "no alarms and no surprises, please" when she's going to bed.

Song of the Day: All Time Low by Jon Bellion

If you were hoping to find new vaguely melancholic, but also catchy pop jams, look no further. I don't know how to describe Jon Bellion. He sounds kinda like the dude from Owl City, except a lil less annoying. But I do recommend his 2014 album The Definition. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
