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.

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
