Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.
It is getting darker and darker outside, nights are getting colder, the mood is set right for a hospital blues. Which looking at my songs, has nothing to do with the genre, but more associated to things you might find in a hospital.
System of a Down ~ NeedlesLet me tell you, I am scared of needles, not so much if they are laying around, then it is fine, only when the needles are intended to be used on me I just want to run away and hide. Needles by System of a Down is a hectic song, upbeat song. I honestly don't know what the meaning of this song is, so if anyone knows, let me know. But hey needles would be something you would find in a hospital so there you go.
Ed Sheeran ~ Afire LoveI guess we are doing extremes today because we are moving on to the pop front. Ed Sheeran has been one of my favourite artists ever since The A Team became a big hit, I haven't listened to any of his recently released albums but this song is freaking beautiful. One of my favorioute tracks of the album X.
Billy Talent ~ Saint VeronikaRemember the extremes, well we had our beautiful quite song, preformed by the extremely talented Ed Sheeran. Time to rock on people, with one of my favourite Canadian bands. I had the honour to see them live on Lowlands 2017, and I was at the front row, so I could actually see them (oh right I am only 1,52m so you can imagine my struggles). This is Saint Veronika! This song actually has a base solo, which is kind of awesome. By the way this is something Martijn actually dislikes. Are there any Billy Talent fans out here that read my blog?
Asaf Avidan ~ Setting Scalples FreeAnother calm song to clean your pallet, Asaf Avidan, has been part of this blog for a long time, and remains to this date part of my go to artists for beautiful listening songs, they are atmospheric, lyrical and this combined with his peculiar voice makes for a wonderful experience. I had the honnor to see him preform live in Tivoli Vredenburg a couple of year back, it was absolutely amazing.
Album: Different Pulses
Hot Hot Heat ~ BandagesThe amazing 2000s they brought so much great music to the table, The Killers, The Strokes, The Zutons. And also a band called Hot Hot Heat. This was in a time that I was obsessed with MTV 2 the UK rock version of the general poppy Dutch counterpart. This is one of those songs I remember from this time.
Make Up The Breakdown
Bonus song: A. Tom Collins ~ HospitalSo, here is a bonus song provide to you by my lovely boyfriend Martijn, who I have not yet introduced, but maybe he will write a Swinging Saturdays for me some where in the future, who knows? I am thinking of adding some more personal posts to my blogs, I haven't fingured out what yet, just something about me, and who I am, behind this blog. Anyways, don't take me to the hospital.
Which song did you enjoy the most?
