Over the Christmas holidays, Sky documentaries premiered the two hour BeeGees documentary How Can You Mend A Broken Heart. As someone who has grown up listening and enjoying the music of the band, I recently watched the documentary and decided to dedicate this month’s favourite song to them.
I have so many favourite BeeGees songs, that it was incredibly difficult to choose only one of them for this month. I chose Words because it is one of my top favourites and has had some great covers too (Boyzone being one of them).
This month, I am combining my favourite song from last month, with my current favourite song (phew!), as I had chosen a classic song in November. I still wanted to include a current favourite which is Golden by Harry Styles, taken from the album Fine Line.
I have definitely been enjoying Harry’s album Fine Line and Golden is no exception. I particularly love the music video bcause every time I watch it, it leaves me feeling genuinely happy! We definitely need more music videos like that this year! Especially ones like this where there is no confusing storyline and the artist of the song remains in the forefront. The song itself is very upbeat, romantic and happy. If you haven’t heard it yet, do check it out below. You’ll surely see why Mr Harry Styles has become everyone’s favourite artist this year!
On the 21st of each month, I share my current favourite song. It can be an old song or a new song, and I choose to share it to give inspiration to anyone who is looking for some new music, and enjoys the kind of music that I share here at the blog.
This months choice is one of the most popular songs of the 90’s (Everything I Do) I Do it for You by the one and only Bryan Adams. This song has always been one of my favourties and ever since I watched the film it featured in (Robin Hood Prince of Thieves), I had always wanted to learn to play it on the piano (something that I managed to achieve this year!). The song is a perfect love song, with heart touching vocals, the perfect blend of soft rock, and a noteworthy key change that elevates the song to a higher level and lyrically makes its strongest points, before closing with its diminuendo.
These days, I seem to be finding all of my forgotten favourite songs from the radio.
This month, I rediscovered the song Missing by 90s pop duo Everything But The Girl (EBTG). Duo’s were quite common in the 90s, and after hearing the Karen Ramirez cover their other hit Didn’t Know I was looking for love, when I heard Missing, I couldn’t believe that I had forgotten this artist.
I discovered this months favourite song around the same time as Adore You by Harry Styles. I genuinely didn’t think good pop music existed anymore, until I fell in love with both of these tracks.
