Here are the songs I listened to most in May. Find monthly playlists from me on Spotify
High Hopes – Panic! at the Disco
Record: Pray For The Wicked
Favourite Lyrics: ‘Shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing, didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision.’
Urie steps up the jazzy vibes from DOAB on this new track – horns, strings and uplifting lyrics.
No official video for this one!
Nervous – Shawn Mendes
Record: Shawn Mendes
Favourite Lyrics: ‘You got me acting like I’ve never done this before, I promise I’ll be ready when I walk through the door.’
Every day images of coffee shops and walking in the rain conjured up by Mendes’ falsetto vocals.
FRIENDS – Marshmello & Anne-Marie
Record: Speak Your Mind
Favourite Lyrics: ‘You can’t be reasoned with, I’m done being polite
I’ve told you one, two, three, four, five, six thousand times…’
An electro-pop friendzone anthem full of sing along moments.
Shotgun – George Ezra
Record: Staying at Tamara’s
Favourite Lyrics: ‘There’s a mountaintop that I’m dreaming of, if you need me you know were I’ll be.’
Ezra’s unmistakable deep vocals accompanied by a funky beat. A Summer jam.
Hearts on Fire – Gavin James
Record: Hearts On Fire
Favourite Lyrics: ‘Down on these dirty streets I lost my soul’
A bit different to James’ previous offerings. Hearts On Fire is more uptempo than we’re used to getting from him, though the subject matter remains unchanged.
