No Skip Music Challenge...

So, this is where I'm going to put all my songs on shuffle on Spotify, and I cannot skip the song even if I hate it. And I have to listen to it, and I have to form an opinion on it. So Spotify, please be on my side. I have over 5000 songs saved on Spotify, so this is going to be fun. 

1. 24 Floors by The Maine. Okay, I can get on board with this. This used to be my safety song. So when I was at my lowest, I'd listen to this for comfort and understanding. I love it, always have and always will. So thanks for being on my side Spotify. 

2. Corner of My Mind by McFly. Ah, lovely... I wasn't the biggest fan of most of the lost songs, and it makes me sad, because McFly were always that band for me when I was younger. But now, nah. I do not like Corner of My Mind. There's so many better McFly songs, and I'm just not someone that listening to McFly a lot anymore. Sorry... nah, don't like it. 

3. Loser by Beartooth. Now, this is the shit. Beartooth are great, and Loser is up there with my favourite Beartooth songs. This is what I want, this song will always be a classic for me, and Caleb Shomo has such a great voice. Now I want to listen to Beartooth on repeat. 

4. Starry Eyes by You Me At Six. Not my favourite thing YMAS have put out, but I can appreciate it. And it's nice, and it's calming and it's Josh so you have to love it, and I've always appreciated it. Spotify really out here being on my side! 

5. Small Talk by State Champs. Small Talk is normally a song I skip, but you know what, this shit is good! This is one of the very few times I've listened to this song, and I love it. Why do I skip this? It slaps! Derek DiScanio is incredibly talented, and honestly, yes. I'm here for this! 

6. Is Nowhere by Mayday Parade. Again, I normally skip most of Sunnyland, but Is Nowhere is so good! Listening to it properly is making me realise that maybe I should show Sunnyland more love. So, maybe I will, because this is good! I love this. 

7. Stuck in Remission by Mayday Parade. Always loved this track, also we have Jake vocals on this track so I love it even more. But yeah, I love it and I think it's great! 

8. Curtains by Bloxx. This takes me back to my last gig, and now I miss it even more. It's an incredible track both live and on a studio version. I got a lot of love for Bloxx. 

9. Losing Ground by Spoke Too Soon. I love Spoke Too Soon, and I feel like I've neglected listening to them recently, but I'm 100% ready to get back into them, because they're incredible! Also, they're Scottish and I'm a sucker for Scottish bands. Might do a band review of them soon! 

10. Peace on Earth by Meat Loaf. Meat Loaf if my mum's favourite, so I as a result of my parents and sister playing it for the entirety of my life, I have to love it. I was raised to love Meat Loaf, and this album (Hang Cool Teddy Bear) just reminds me of my dad because this was all he listened to when we went on our last holiday together. I love the song, and now I'm getting emotional thinking about that lovely drive from Notts to Cornwall in his old BMW. 

11. Nails and Teeth in Pavement by Have Mercy. I love Have Mercy, but this song has never done it for me, and it still doesn't. I wish I loved it, but I don't. I can't. It doesn't do anything for me and I wish it did. 

12. Boy Band by Son Of Dork. This is where my origins in music show. I will admit, this song is great. Not what I tend to listen to, but I've loved it for so long, and I still adore it. 

13. Monstro by Meat Loaf. I mean, this track is simply just an instrumental for the transition into Alive from Bat Out of Hell 3... I mean, it's great, but I can't say much when it's just instrumental but it's great and it's dramatic. 

14. Shallow by Lewis Capalidi. I love Lewis Capaldi, I always will. It's a beautiful cover. He has a beautiful voice. It's great. There's a lot to love and appreciate and I do rate it. 

15. Charlie Black by Modern Baseball. What a song! I think I have a new found love and appreciation for this track after this. I do, I love MoBo and this is a great track. I love it. I didn't used to love it, but can safely say it's grown on me and I love it a lot now. See, this is what I wanted this post to do for me! 

16. The Young and The Hopeless by Good Charlotte. ABSOLUTE TUNE! YES! This is so nostalgic for me, and I will always stand by this album. Honestly, I've forgotten about this song, but now it's came on I'm ready to listen to this album on repeat!

17. Follow Me Down by The Pretty Reckless. Wow, throwback to scene kid Grace. You know what, I'll stand by this track. Yes. Not saying I love it like I used to, but it's still good and I'll still stand by it. 

18. Alive by Meat Loaf. Now, why can't this have come on like at number 14 rather than 18? This is literally what Monstro opens for! Still, stand by it, still rate it. One of my favourite Meat Loaf tracks and I love it so much. This is a song that me and my mum will always sing together, and it will always have a special place in my heart because of that. 

19. Another Song About The Weekend by A Day To Remember. One of my favourite ADTR tracks, and I think it's great. I will always love it, and it's part of the years when ADTR released incredible legendary albums. 

20. What Do I Know? by Ed Sheeran. Now this really shows what my music taste goes from, Ed Sheeran from A Day To Remember. Great song though, one of my favourite Ed Sheeran tracks. 

21. You Never Know by Beartooth. One of my favourite Beartooth songs, honestly, it's a big mood and I will forever stand by it. I love Beartooth as we've established and yeah, You Never Know is a tune! 

22. Nothing's Wrong by State Champs. What a song! The Finer Things is possibly my favourite SC album, and there's no bad songs on it. Nothing's Wrong is a tune and a half! Like yes, Derek gimme them beautiful vocals! 

23. Sir Loin, The Steak by Better Love. Not my favourite Better Love track, but I'll stand by it. It's good, and I'd totally forgotten that it exists, so maybe I'll have to show Better Love some more love! 

24. She's A Lady by Forever The Sickest Kids. Wow! Throwback, I feel 13 again. Still know every word to it, I miss FTSK. Great song, scene kid classic. 

25. Atlas by Man Overboard. Man Overboard were one of the first bands I saw live, I think they were my 5th band I saw live. Man, throwback. And MO are making tunes again, but Atlas will always be a classic! Love this song, and now I'm going to have it stuck in my head for weeks. 

So I'm going to leave it here, but I'm found a lot of bands I'd forgotten about, don't show enough love to, or that I've rediscovered my love for. I've had some tunes, and a couple of flops. But that's just my personal opinion. I just thought it'd be quite fun to see what Spotify gave me, and see if it's varied. But yeah, was quite impressed with this.

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
