Tidbit Tuesday: On My Music Playlist...

Hey peeps

It's been a while since I last did this - so I thought I'd rummage through the playlist on my phone and share with you some of the songs I'm listening to (a lot!) lately.

I featured one of Adele's songs a little while ago, Rolling in the Deep. Loved the tempo and the lyrics were powerful, and quite different from usual Adele fare that is more slow/blues-y and not really my cup of tea.
Until I got to listen to this, and the song totally blew me away. I heard the story playing in those lyrics, and believe me, they grip you by the throat and I found myself crying once when I was listening to this tune. Can so, totally, see this one going up as the soundtrack for a story somewhere. And didn't think I'd say this, coz I love Rolling in the Deep - this song really could be Adele's best! Take a look at the video (starkly simple but so potent!) and listen to those lyrics *shivers guaranteed!*

Adele - Someone Like You



Now this one I found completely by chance - stumbled upon it on the music channel on TV. I'd forgotten to switch the channel to the cartoon ones and when I started the TV, this sound came up a few seconds before the images loaded.
What can I say? I was hooked! Love the music - the beat is just awesome, and the voice of Julian Perretta ain't half bad either. :)
(Lol, surprise - he's a Briton too!)

Julian Perretta - If I Ever Feel Better



And, this one - no surprise this time, lol, for those who know me - is not British but he's French, and probably the most popular DJ in the world! I love me some good David Guetta vibes, and did we Guetta fans have an awesome year, what with all the singles and musical collaborations he'd slotted.
This is one of his latest, featuring (other Briton! ROTF) Taio Cruz on the lyrics, along with Ludacris. Love Taio Cruz's voice, btw - will share one of his vids sometime. :)

So there you have some of the beats rocking my world lately. What ye listening to right now?

From Mauritius with love,

Right now - I'm a sucker for things Adele. But this song, man, it gives me chills!!!!!! All the way down to my toes...

And the song makes me think so much about that WIP I told you about, with the undercover cop...girl - I won't be able to stop thinking about this.

I agree, made me cry...

It's a devastating song! I can't remember the last time I was so moved by a song's lyrics. Apparently, Adele wrote it afer her own breakup with her long-time boyfriend - can you imagine that kind of pain? *shivers*

It's why it feels real. That's the key. Making it real...

Yes - raw emotion! That's what we also need to channel into our writing

I have already worn my Adele CD down, lol. This is such a powerful song, and her amazing voice brings all that emotion to the surface.
If only I could channel Adele! :)
