Whooptidoo! It’s time for Tuned up Thursday. It’s the beginning of a new month so that means we’re continuing a delve into some of my music memories or any songs in general that I just like, or have somehow left a mark on me in the past. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite songs with you and well, let’s just say there is a bit of a mix here. We have some (by now) old school dance, grunge, 90s R&B, some folk and something dark and heavy. Enjoy!
Hardcore Vibes 2001 (Original Mix) – Ravers on Dope
Yes, this song HAD to be in here. This was the song my best friend and I went crazy over back in our clubbing days. Oh, how old I feel saying that. But yep, over 10 years ago this song was tha bomb and we danced our butts off the minute this came on.
Heart Shaped Box – Nirvana
I was a tad too young when Nirvana broke onto the scene, but I started watching MTV at quite an early age and so I saw their music videos quite frequently. At the time I hated it. Rock was not my thing. As a 10 – 12 year old, all I liked was pop music. Later that changed and as my teens progressed I started getting into rock music. This song in particular always struck me, just what’s up with that video?
Heaven – All Saints
Another song from my teenage years. Back in 1998, I decided to buy some non-Backstreet Boys music. One of the album I got was the self titled debut by British R&B group All Saints. If you don’t know them (anymore), the please listen to that album. It’s a good example of mainstream 90s girl group R&B prior to Destiny’s Child (they were just getting started at the time). Together with War of Nerves, this song still remains a favorite.
Heavy In Your Arms – Florence + The Machine
I think I may have featured this song in another post a couple of weeks ago. But that is no big deal. It just goes to show how much I love this song. This, on repeat, after a long hard day. That’s all you need to understand why I like this.
Hope In the Air – Laura Marling
Finally, a post by the amazing Laura Marling. She started with Noah and the Whale but soon went solo. This song is from her second album and I love her vocals on this. It’s a bit folky so that has to be your cup of tea, but this is an amazingly beautiful song.
What are some of your old favorites?
