Playlist of the Month: April 2017

  1. This works surprisingly well as a vocal warm-up. 
  2. But seriously, this is probably going to wind up as my Favorite Song of The Year, I just love the lyrics so much. 
  3. “This isn’t a healthy relationship you’re in,” I mutter to myself every time I listen to this song. 
  4. “This song is two guys singing to each other; the chorus is them, like, trying to break up, and the verses are basically just them sexting. And it’s backed by a youth choir. It’s so twisted and I love it and I want to be Woodkid when I grow up” – me, describing this song to a friend 
  5. Warning: will get stuck in your head. 
  6. I’m going to bet this song won’t survive into next month’s playlist, and there’s a single reason for that: I recognize one of the synthesizers the artist used, and it kicks me out of being able to listen to the song every time I hear it. 
  7. I’m gonna be honest, at least half of the reason this song is in here is because I’m a twelve-year-old and laughed at the title. 
  8. I blame Chase playing this song for the reason that I have this entire album. 
  9. New Oh Wonder! I am excited. 
  10. It’s just a classic, okay?
