Hey lovelies 💕,
I’m still griefing about the loss of the inspiring and beautiful surfers who died in our North Sea last monday the 11th of May 😢. You can read the whole story in my last blog post. With that post I also wrote my 200th post on my blog. I’m so proud of that achievement and for all of your support and love. I wouldn’t be there without you guys. I love you so much 😍. Now, let’s get on with this post. I will share some beautiful music I listened to in April. There were some beautiful new Spanish songs from Sofía Ellar ft. Álvaro Soler and Aitana and also amazing songs from Dua Lipa and Selena Gomez.
Sofía Ellar ft. Álvaro Soler – Barrer a casa
I LOVE THISSSS SWEET SONG SO MUCH!!!! 🥰💕 Also, I love Sofía and Álvaro so much. They are together as a couple too and are really well known artists from Spain. Spain have more than 20.000 deaths and is now doing a bit better. They are slowly going out of the lockdown. They weren’t allowed to leave the house at all, only to the supermarket or pharmacy. This song was made in lockdown and the home made video is just so cute. It’s about this situation where we don’t have the freedom to do what we want to do.
Lola Indigo ft. Rauw Alejandro & Lalo Ebratt – 4 besos
Lola Indigo is such an amazing Spanish artist and this collaboration is so amazing! Sounds a nice beat, melody and dance! She is not only a good singer but also a great dancer 💃.
David Bisbal ft. Aitana – Si tu la quieres
David Bisbal and Aitana singing together is just a bless! It’s so beautiful and emotional. Their voices are so good together. They both ended at the second place of the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo and are now super famous. I’m really loving this collaboration. This song is about love knowing no distance. Right now, we can’t see our families and friends but we still give love to those we love only now it’s with a distance between us.
Lewis Capaldi – Someone you loved
”I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal
Somebody to know
Somebody to have
Somebody to hold
It’s easy to say
But it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain”
I love Lewis Capaldi more and more now. This is such a beautiful and emotional song. We all need someone to hold us when we feel bad and not someone who leave us. His voice is so magical ✨.
Lewis Capaldi – Before you go
Another beautiful song of Lewis! It’s so touching and just so beautiful. I can’t wait to listen to more songs of him.
Leighton Meester – Summer girl
”I’m just a summer girl
I wear my flip flops
And when I let my hair down
That’s when the party starts
And who needs a boyfriend
I got my girlfriends
And when we get together
The summer never ends
I didn’t know Leighton could sing too. She is known as Blake in one of my favourite series ever: xoxo Gossip Girl. I love country songs and this song is so cute. I’m a Summer girl too 🌞🌊🏄♀️. I can’t wait for Summer even though it will not be the best Summer ever. I hope to make it a good one. I can’t wait to wear my flip flops, bikini and swim in the sea. That’s my ray of happiness. She sings so well and it’s so cute!
La Oreja de Van Gogh – Abrázame
This is a beautiful new song from my favourite Spanish band. They come from Basque country. I have listened all my life to their beautiful music. This song is called hug me 🤗 and it’s so touching. It’s a new song of their upcoming new album in a few months. They just make the best music ever.
Vanesa Martín – Un canto a la vida
This is an emotional song about our current situation in the world. All the purchases of this song will go to The Red Cross to combate the Coronavirus. I think that’s a beautiful idea and the song is amazing! It’s a song about hope and about going on in life. It’s about being all together, being an empath and solidair with each other. Those are so important qualties and not only now but always. We have to give thanks for all the people working in the health sector fighting for others and for their lives each day.
Resistiré 2020 – 30 artists
This is one of my favourite Spanish songs. The original is from Dúo Dinámico. In this version 30 Spanish artists sing together about being all together and united to combate the Coronavirus together. Resistir means to resist. We have to resist all together 💪💕. We can do it even though sometimes I feel a bit tired of all of this. I just wish it wouldn’t take so long to get to a new world and see each other again. I really am craving connection and seeing my family and friends. I only see my parents because I live with them. I’m grateful for a safe home but I still miss face to face connection so much. It’s a touching song and I love that the funds go to a NGO called Cáritas in Spain.
Dani Martin ft. Juanes – Los huesos
Two amazing Spanish artists are singing together a powerful and amazing song. I love it! Their voices combine perfectly.
Selena Gomez – Boyfriend
”I want a boyfriend
But I just keep hitting dead ends
Try to take a shortcut, but I get cut
Again and again
I want a boyfriend
Tell me, are there any good ones left?
I keep finding wrong ones, but I want love
Again and again
I want a boyfriend”
Selena Gomez always makes such good music! This song is sooo catchy and nice. I really like it!! I also would love to have a nice boyfriend haha but I guess yes I only find bad ones.
Dua Lipa – Future Nostalgia
I love Dua Lipa and I’m really happy that her new album came out!!! It’s so good. I already shared the song Physical which I love in this blog post. I will share some other nice songs below.
Dua Lipa – Break my heart
WOW such an amazing song! I love it so much. Dua Lipa never fails. The video clip is also so well made. I love her vibes so much. I really can see myself dancing this song during a party but oh wait Coronatimes so that has to wait a bit more.
Dua Lipa – Boys will be boys
”It’s second nature to walk home before the sun goes down
And put your keys between your knuckles when there’s boys around
Isn’t it funny how we laugh it off to hide our fear
When there’s nothin’ funny here
Sick intuition that they taught us so we won’t freak out
We hide our figures, doin’ anythin’ to shut their mouths
We smile away to ease the tension so it don’t go south
But there’s nothin’ funny now”
OMG this song!!! 😍👌It’s so good. Again a song about feminism and the lyrics is just so good. It’s the best. We are always afraid of walking home and have our keys in our hands. Men can just walk normally during the night. We have the right to come home safely too. I love the chorus and the other voices you hear. Such a nice song. Girls will be women yeahhh right! 👭♀️💜
OG3NE – Bohemian Rhapsody
This version of Bohemian Rhapsody is so good from my favourite Dutch girl band OG3NE. They sing so beautiful in harmony together. I have so much love and respect for them. They lost their mother after participating in Eurovision a few years ago. They still sing together and it’s always so beautiful. Even the page on Instagram from Queen has reshared this video. They really deserve all the love. It’s so difficult to sing this all together while being isolated.
Miriam Rodríguez – La Dirección de tu Suerte
Miriam also participated in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo in 2017. This is her second album and I really like it so much. Her voice has so much power and I love the songs she writes. She is such a great singer-songwriter. She is also called ‘La Leona’ which means lion because she is a powerful women and has so much pressence when she sings on stage. I already shared the song ‘No sé quién soy’ of her new album in my last music post. I will share my favourite songs of the album below.
Miriam Rodríguez – Desperté
This is an amazing song. I love her voice, power and just everything. I also am in love with the beautiful moon 🌕. Such a beautiful way to represent this song. Desperté was the first single of the album which she released. Desperté means waking up. She sings about living with sadness. Sometimes we want to dissapear but we have to find our way in life and wake up. We have to find a way to live with the sadness we feel in life.
Miriam Rodríguez – No fui yo
This such an emotional and beautiful song. I really like it how she has so many different songs in her new album, some amazing ballads like this one and some other pop songs.
