Current Tunes #2

 Perfect – Ed Sheeran ft. Beyonce
I haven’t been the biggest fan of Ed Sheeran’s music (with the exception of “I See Fire” from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which I love) but the new duet with Beyonce is literally PERFECT. It’s so sweet and lovely and the lyrics totally hit the mark, and this is coming from someone who is a massive cynic with the romantic capacity of a gnat.

You are the ReasonCalum Scott
There are a lot of “love” songs on this list, as I’ve been tweaking the romance subplot in my recent manuscript, and this song is a nice, slow ballad that discusses how one person can profoundly affect another.

Blood and BonesKodaline
My new favorite song from Kodaline is Blood and Bones, with it’s evocative sound and meaningful lyrics. I just really like the sound, and Without You is another good one, though my play count for this is slightly higher.

Tell Me You Love MeBoy Epic
I had this song on repeat for like, three days a couple of weeks ago. It’s got a really great arrangement/sound (I love the piano in the beginning) and has been helping me through some writing block/inspirational woes lately. The words evoke a lot of different emotion, and the melody builds in strength as it goes, so as soon as the song is over, I’m already eager to listen to it again.

Beautifully UnfinishedElla Henderson 
This song is absolutely gorgeous and Henderson has a beautiful voice that really tugs at the heartstrings in this one. This song explores ideas of unrequited and unresolved feelings and how it feels to hate and love a person simultaneously. You know, warm and fuzzies. But seriously, this song is so lovely, and well worth a listen.

StarsSkillet
I also have Lions and Invincible on my current playlist, but Stars is my favorite. It’s got a really nice sound and the lyrics are particularly strong. I especially love the bridge, and although the song has religious undertones (at least, I’m pretty sure it does) it also features a universal message of finding your way or finding purpose after feeling lost.
