Lovely Things: Music Of The Week (8)

Saturday is nice, it really is. You wake in the morning, recovering from the hectic and chaotic pace of every Friday, and just having a little bit of chill time with yourself, and in my case, it’s always chilling with music, that’s why I’m writing these posts every Saturday, because Music is awesome! This week’s list is quite varied, and has some stellar recommendations.

As for the special segment, as a celebration of Depeche Mode releasing their new music video for the single “Where’s The Revolution”, I have decided to make the special segment of this week about some of my favorite music videos! So buckle up, and get ready for beautiful visuals!

(IMPORTANT NOTE: The Following songs aren’t part of the Spotify playlist, because they’re not available: 1 – Maggie By Catherine Feeny. 2 – Gloomy Sunday by Rezső Seress)

1 – The Gift – Clinic Hope

Now here’s a nice electro pop song! After hearing Shura’s work, I’ve got this interest in exploring more synthpop songs by different artist, and I heard that the gift were pretty good, so I just picked their latest release “Clinic Hope” and I was not disappointed! Pretty catchy synth sounds, and very cheerful and uplifting vibes.

2 – U2 – One (From Achtung Baby album)

Here’s an emotional and moody one. Not a big fan of U2 (Didn’t listen to a lot of their stuff truth be told) but this one got stuck with me. There’s just something about that guitar that plays out throughout the song that’s captivating to me. Mix that with it’s ballad’ish feeling, and you’ve got yourself a pretty good song.

3 – Pink Turns Blue – Walking On Both Side (From If Two Worlds Kiss album)

I love 80’s music, and I love gothic rock, so here’s a gothic rock song from the 80’s. I think that pretty much sums up why I like this song! It’s quite simple and repetitive, but it has a really nice atmosphere and sound.

4 – Diary Of Dreams – King Of Nowhere (From (if) album)

My obsession with Diary Of Dreams continues, as the gloomy and poetic darkwave band continues to surprise me with how good they are. King Of Nowhere is one of those tracks that stood out for me, quite different from The Curse and She And Her Darkness, but delivers the same powerful music.

5 – Nine Inch Nails – The Day The Whole World Went Away (From The Fragile album)

Not a big fan of Nine Inch Nails, I tried listening to them recently, and I couldn’t quite wrap my head around their sound, but this song was way different from all the songs I’ve listened to by them. I got hooked right from the beginning, a very powerful song that takes it’s time, but delivers properly.

Favorite Music Videos:

First of all, as a celebration of “Where’s The Revolution”, you can watch the video here:

1 – Walking In My Shoes by Depeche Mode

My favorite song of all time has one of the greatest and creepiest music videos I’ve ever seen. Inspired by The Divine comedy, Anton Corbijn killed it with this one! It’s so incredibly atmospheric and fits the tone of the song PERFECTLY!

2 – Losing My Religion by R.E.M.

For some reason whenever I watch this video, I can’t help feel like the entire video is a set of paintings but with the content of the paintings moving. It’s really good.

3 – Daydreaming by Radiohead

Watch it, just please do.

4 – Up & Up by Coldplay

A very imaginative one! It’s creativity taken to a whole new level. I genuinely think this is a spectacular music video.

5 – Wrong by Depeche Mode

If you can’t want unsettling music videos, don’t watch this one. If you like unsettling music videos, YOU’RE IN FOR A TREAT!
