Music of July 🎶💗

Hola lovelies 💕,

This was again such a good month full of beautiful music! 😍🎶🎵 I’m happy to share some of my favourite songs of July with you all below. I hope you will like them too.

Taylor Swift – The Archer

“All the king’s horses, all the king’s men
Couldn’t put me together again
‘Cause all of my enemies started out friends
Help me hold onto youI’ve been the archer
I’ve been the prey
Who could ever leave me, darling?
But who could stay?”

I can’t wait to buy her new album on the 23th of August which is called Lover. I love this new song of her. It’s included in her new album. It feels different than her album Reputation. I love the sound of it and it sounds and feels so dreamy. I love it so much. I can’t wait for this new era of Taylor full of hearts, flowers and colourful things. I love her so much 😍🌸. Every song she makes is so good!

Miley Cyrus – Mother’s Daughter

“Don’t fuck with my freedom.

My mama always told me that I’d make it
That I’d make it, so I made it
I put my back into and my heart in it
So I did it, yeah, I did it”

I love the new songs of Miley Cyrus! I have to admit that I had to get used to this song but I really like it. It’s a good song and it empowers women. Our freedom is the most important thing. I loved how her mother was also showed in the video. Miley Cyrus is back and I’m really happy about that.

Miley Cyrus – The Most

I love this video even if it isn’t the offical music video but it looks so cute. I love this song so much. The melody, the lyrics, the sound, just everything of it is so awesome!

Duncan Laurence – Arcade (Acoustic version)

I already told you in this blog post about Duncan Laurence winning The Eurovision Song Contest for The Netherlands. I’m just so in love with this song. He just released the acoustic version of Arcade which sounds as good as the other version. So pure and so emotional 😍😭. Goosebumps all over my body. His voice is so beautiful and this song means the most for me. FAVOURITE SONG EVAH. I can’t wait to hear him sing this song live in concert in March in Amsterdam! I also can’t wait to go to Eurovision next year.

Sam Smith – How do you sleep?

I’m done hatin’ myself for feelin’
I’m done cryin’ myself awake
I’ve gotta leave and start the healin’
But when you move like that, I just want to stay

SO GOOD! Amazing song! I love it from the beginning to the end. I love the choreography and his voice is so beautiful. I have to admit that I don’t listen to many of his songs. I guess I have to do it more.

ROSALÍA – F*cking Money Man (Milionària + Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero)

These are two songs which Rosalía released together in the single F*cking Money Man. They are combined in one video. I love them so much. The first one Milionària is in Catalan. It’s a rumba. It’s about her love and hate for money 🤑💰. In this first song she sings about how she would love to be a millionair to buy and do whatever she wants. However, in the other Spanish song Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero she sings about how she would want to burn all that money and that God has to save us from it all. I guess we all feel this way about money. It’s nice to have money but money will never buy us all the happiness we need in life. I love the meaning behind these songs and everything!

David Bisbal ft. Juan Mágan – Bésame

Amazing Summer song! 🌞💗🌊 I always have loved David Bisbal so much. I remember dancing and singing on his songs when I was younger and I still am a fan of him. I also love Juan Mágan who makes songs with a more reggeaton style. It’s a song full of good vibes, Summer vibes, happiness and love. Bésame means kiss me. They sing about a girl kissing him for the first time and that he will love him forever in his arms.

Sofia Ellar – La Revolución (For the movie Angry Birds 2)

One of my favourite artists, Sofia Ellar, from Spain has released this new song for the movie Angry birds 2. I love her so much. It’s very cute and it sticks in my head all the time!

Isma Romero ft. Alfred García – Cicatriz

Beautiful song! I didn’t know Isma Romero before. I love their two voices together. It’s such a great song. It’s a temazo like they say in Spain!

Carlos Sadness – Ahorita

I love to discover new artists 😊. Carlos Sadness also sang a song for the album “1016” of Alfred Garcia. He is a Spanish song-writer and his songs are of the genre indie and pop. I just saw this song when I opened Youtube one day and I loved it. It’s a chill song. It’s a song about not being in a hurry. Ahorita means right now or could mean in a little while. They use this expression a lot in Latin America. I always say that I’m on my way but then I’m sometimes too late.

Ed Sheeran – No.6 Collaborations Project

I was so excited for this new album of Ed Sheeran 💕. It’s an album full of collaborations with famous artists such as Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Eminem, Bruno Mars and so much more. It’s such a good album with so many styles of music like rap and pop songs! I already loved the song “I don’t care” from Ed Sheeran together with Justin Bieber. Here are my favourites songs from his new album.

Ed Sheeran ft. Camila Cabello & Cardi B – South of the border

LOVE THIS SONG 😍. I always love to hear Spanish and English together in one song. It sounds so good! I also love Camila Cabello so much. The melody is also really nice and chill.

Ed Sheeran ft. YEBBA – Best part of me

“But she loves me, she loves me
Why the hell she love me
When she could have anyone else?
Oh, you love me, you love me
Why the hell d’you love me?

‘Cause I don’t even love myself

Baby, the best part of me is you
Lately, everything’s makin’ sense, too
Oh, baby, I’m so in love with you”

WOW WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG 💗👌. These are my favourites kinds of songs of Ed Sheeran. I didn’t know YEBBA before and wow she has such a beautiful voice and together with Ed Sheeran it sounds so damn good.

Ed Sheeran ft. Ella Mai – Put it all on me

I try to be strong, well, I got demons
So can I lean on you?
I need a strong heart and a soft touch
And you’re the one when I want love

Another amazing song! I love the sound of it so much. It makes me really happy to listen to this song.

Ed Sheeran ft. Paulo Londra & Dave – Nothing on you

Again I love it when I hear English and Spanish together in one song. It’s such a great mix of voices. It’s a really great song with a good beat.

BTS – Lights

“You’re my light
No matter how far apart we are”

Wow love it! What a beautiful song! This song is all about love and I also read that’s a love letter to their fans. I think that’s so sweet of them. The music video is also so pretty.

Kygo ft. Chelsea Cutler – Not ok

This song was released in May but the video came out in July. I love the clip so much and the song is just AMAZING! It’s okay to not be okay. We all search for validation like you see in this clip. At the end of the clip the girl in the pink dress says: “I want pizza.” and “I look great after a mental breakdown.” I couldn’t relate more to these two sentences hahah 😂✌️.

Thank you all for reading this blog post full of good music 🎶. Have you listen to any of these songs? Which one did you like? What was your favourite song in July? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

Music of May 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕,

I can’t wait to share you all the good music which was released in May 🎶. I’m going to share Spanish music as well as other amazing pop/house/kpop songs.

Panic! At The Disco – High hopes

“Had to have high high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high high hopes
Had to have high high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high high hopes

This song was released last year but it was just this month that I heard it on a video and also on the radio. I love Panic! At The Disco and this song is just so amazing. I just heard it again this week in Spain and was dancing like crazy at home. THIS SONG MAKES ME SO HAPPPPPY 😍💃 It gives me good vibes and what an amazing lyrics! It’s good to have dreams in life and high hopes. I truly believe we can achieve anything we want in life. The universe always has our back ✨.

Shawn Mendes – If I can’t have you

Shawn Mendes only makes good music like this song. I love this song! It has a nice beat and his voice is just beautiful. I also love the clip and it just fits perfectly to the song.

Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber – I don’t care

“We at a party we don’t wanna be at
Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves
Read your lips, I’d rather kiss ’em right back
With all these people all around
I’m crippled with anxiety
But I’m told it’s where I’m supposed to be
You know what? It’s kinda crazy ’cause I really don’t mind
And you make it better like that

This is such a catchy song! 😍 I love Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber together. They sound very good together. I also love the random photoshop effects in the video. I also find the lyrics very relatable. I have had times that I was in a party and didn’t want to be there. Also struggling from anxiety makes it harder to enjoy a party. It’s important that they raise awareness about mental health in music because there are so many people from all different ages who listen to it. They will feel less alone when they hear more people are suffering with it.

OG3NE – Starve

“If you’re hungry for love 
Someone who’s the air in your lungs
Someone that you know you can finally trust with your scars
If you’re shaken and cold
And you need somebody to hold
And you are hungry for someone
Who take you as you are

I won’t let you starve”

OG3NE is a beautiful girl group from The Netherlands. These are three beautiful sisters. I love their songs and their beautiful harmony between these three voices. They won The voice of Holland a few years ago and also represented The Netherlands at Junior Song Contest in 2007 and Eurovision Song Contest in 2017. They ended at the 11th place. They sang the beautiful song “Lights and Shadows” which was about their sick mom who later that year died of cancer. I love their songs such as this new song. It’s an amazing song who tells us that there will always be someone who will love us for who we are.

Alvaro Soler – La libertad

I love Alvaro Soler so much! 💗 All his songs are amazing and beautiful. Libertad means freedom in Spanish. The videoclip is beautiful and this song makes me happy. It’s just such a bop. I can’t wait to see him live in concert again. His music makes me happy and it’s good music to dance on too.

Aitana – Nada sale mal

I already mentioned Aitana in other blog posts such as in this blog post. I know Aitana from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. She became the second finalist. I’m so proud of her and how successful she is now in Spain and also in Latin America. This song is so catchy and I really like it. She is also such a sweet and beautiful girl, just look in her eyes.

Aitana – Con la miel en los labios

Aitana is releasing her new album in June which I will share next month. This is one song of her album. I love balads so much and especially when Aitana sings them. This song is BEAUTIFUL so beautiful 😍. I love the piano so much too. It’s such a delicate and honest song. She sings so pure with so much emotion. This song is about a passed love. Love changes but never extinguishes. Con la miel en los labios means with the honey on the lips. Aitana loves honey 🍯 so it’s a nice name for her new song.

Amaia – El Relámpago

I know Amaia like Aitana from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo too. Amaia was the one who won the talent show in 2017. I love her first single because it’s just her. This videoclip and song is her essence. Amaia is just being herself. Her voice is like an angel 😇 . I love the visuals too in the videoclip. It’s just so beautiful and magical 🧚‍♀️

Avicii ft. Agnes, Vargas & Lagola – Though love

◢◤ Avicii forever

In June the family of Tim released his postum album. He died a year ago because of suicide. I miss him so much. I’m so thankful that I went once to one of his concerts which I will never ever forget. This is one of his songs in his new album. This song is so good!!! It’s one of my fav songs now. The melody is amazing and the sound of the violins are so amazing too. It makes me emotional to listen to your music. I love you so much and I’m so thankful for your beautiful music. Your music always makes me happy and also guide me through the bad times in life. You will never be forgotten. You are a legend and your legacy is forever 💗🙏✨. I love this song and all your music so much.

All proceeds of the postum album called Tim will go to the recently established Tim Bergling Foundation, a non-profit that helps prevent mental illness and suicide. I think it’s such a beautiful way to help others in need. Mental health awareness and support is so important.

Kygo & Chelsea Cutler – Not ok

I love Kygo so much. He is definitely one of my favourite dj’s together with Avicii of course. This song is amazing and I also love the lyrics video which is simple & beautiful.

TVXQ! (MAX Solo) – Closer

So I came across this song because of being a fan of Duncan Laurence, the winner of Eurovision for The Netherlands. I wrote all about him in this and this blog post. Duncan Laurence is an amazing singer-songwriter and produced and composed together with some other producers this song. I know many of my readers who are KPOP fans will love this song too. I love it and I love to discover more nice songs! It has a nice beat and yeah music has no boundaries. Even if you don’t know the language you can sing along. Music unites people 💕🎶. That’s the power of music.

Christina Perri – Tiny victories

“Some days I look in the mirror and I think the meanest things
all the meanest things
some days I’m holding my self worth up
by a string
a string
but everyday that I don’t hide myself away
to me,
is a tiny victory”

Christina Perri is amazing. This song is so pure and beautiful. I also can relate so much to the lyrics. Self love takes a lot of strength. I also say mean things to myself and feel bad about myself. The day or moment that I’m not doing that is definitely a tiny victory. Every victory counts. We are just trying our best. Don’t be hard on yourself. We will love each other every day a bit more than yesterday. We are all in this together ALWAYS! 💪💕

Michela – Chameleon (Malta – Eurovision 2019)

I love this song so much from Michela who represented Malta for Eurovision this year. It’s a catchy song, has a nice beat and has a great melody. Michela is a great singer too and just 18 years old. I also love the tropical vibes in the music video. It just fits perfectly to the song.

Karol G – Ocean

I love this song of Karol G. Her genre is reggeaton and trap but this sounds different and I like it. She sings about how we are going to show the world what love is. It’s a sweet song. I also love the clip which is made on the beach. The ocean is my fav place on the earth 🌍🌊🏄‍♀️🌞.

Lola Indigo – New album Akelarre

I already wrote about Lola Indigo in this blog post. I also know her from Operación Triunfo. She’s such a good dancer and also a great singer. She released her first album called Akelarre which is related to the Witches’ Sabbath (the place where witches hold their meetings). My favourite songs of her are “Amor veneno”, “Game over”, “Maldición”, “Mujer bruja” and Ya no quiero ná”. Her album is awesome 😍 🧙‍♀️ I love all her songs. She left the first in the talent show and is now so successful in Spain. I wish her all she deserves. This project that she has created is just awesome.

Lola Indigo – Amor veneno

Love this song!

Lola Indigo – Game over

Such a good song and I love how she used the words Nintendo, Mario, Game boy and PlayStation! It’s awesome and so catchy.

Lola Indigo ft. Lalo Ebratt – Maldición

The clip is awesome and the song has such a nice beat!

Lola Indigo ft. Mala Rodríguez – Mujer bruja

THIS SONG IS SOOOOO GOOD! I love to see her dancing and singing. Mujer bruja means witch woman. It’s one of my favourite songs of her.

Lola Indigo – Ya no quiero ya ná

This is my favourite song of Mimi (Lola Indigo). ASDFGHJKL it’s just the best! This was also her first single. The song is amazing, she dances so good and omg it’s just so good!!! Ya no quiero yá means I don’t want anything anymore. She also sings I’m not your baby, boy.

Thank you all for reading this blog post and listening to my music list of May 🎶🎧🎼. Which song was your favourite? What is your favourite artist? Which song did you listen to in May? Let me know in the comments lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Singing cover: Supermarket Flowers by Ed Sheeran 🎶💕🎤

Hey lovely bloggers 💕,

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments in my last blog post. I’m so happy you all like my blog so much. I’m so happy with the endless support I get from you all. It really means the world to me 😍 I will keep continue creating and writing content. I will also try to write about new things. To celebrate my 1 year of blogging I will share in this blog post my first singing cover. In another blog post in the future I will tell you more about my love for singing and more covers. I even am thinking of making a Youtube channel to share there covers aswell as on my blog but I’m a bit nervous about that. I don’t know if I will do that. I’m not a professional singer. I just love singing so much. I just still feel awkward recording me videos hahah 😂.

I sing all my life. I sang in a choir for 11 years in The Netherlands and really loved it. Singing is really one of my biggest passions. Singing is so calming and music just makes me so happy. Music is life ❤. In this blog post I will share a cover of “Supermarket flowers” by Ed Sheeran. I already shared the cover on my Instagram for my blog. The lyrics is so beautiful. I especially love the sentence: “A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved.”

This is such a beautiful and emotional song and one of my favourites of Ed Sheeran. I’m a fan of Ed Sheeran for so many years and I saw him singing live one day when he came as surprise act at the concert of Passenger. I can’t wait to go to a concert of him alone too. This song is about his grandmother who passed away. This song is for all the people who have lost someone. Your loved one is an angel and will live forever in your heart. I’m here for you all 🙏💕🌸

You can watch my cover here below:

Thank you all for reading. I like to share new things on my blog. Did you like my cover? Would you want that I share more singing covers on my blog/youtube? Let me know 😄 I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love,

xoxo Christina

Surf/beach playlist 🌊🎶🌴🌞

Hey lovely bloggers 💕,

I have some great Summer blog posts ready for you this Summer. I already shared some. Today I would like to share with you all a surf/beach playlist for the Summer time. I can’t wait to go to the beach again this Summer as I only went one day. I think I’m going to a surf camp at the end of August. This Saturday is the wedding of my brother so I can’t wait to relax at the beach at the end of this month. I love all of these songs so much. These songs are not in any rank. I love them all equally so much. I hope you like them too.

textgram_1533855875-1927014743.png

  • Ed Sheeran – I see fire (Kygo remix)

I love this remix so much. I already love the original song from Ed Sheeran so much but this remix is just soooo beautiful. I remember that I found this remix just searching one day on Youtube. La belle Musique makes beautiful remixes. Whenever I listen to this song, I feel so relaxed and happy. The melody and the sound is really out of the world 😍 I saw Ed Sheeran once during a concert of Passenger where he came as a surprise to sing one song. I can’t wait to go to one of his concerts. He’s definitely one of my favourite artists ever.

  • Bob Marley – Is this love (Montmarte remix)

This is definitely one of my favourites songs ever. I listened to this song one day when I was on a surfcamp in Suances, in the north of Spain. I always listened to this song and find myself in that surfing mood. Bob Marley is just heaven on earth ❤. I love all his songs so much. This is my favourite remix of this song. It’s so beautiful and have such a relaxing sound!

  • Corona Extra: A journey by Taylor Steele – From where you’d rather be

I always listen to this song when I’m travelling. I listen to this when I’m on the airplane, bus or train. This song and also the videoclip is so beautiful. I definitely get that surf vibes 🏄 I forget the whole world around me when I listen to this song. When I listen to this song I think of travelling the whole world and leaving everything behind me. This song gives me that feeling of freedom and wanderlust. I will never stop travelling because travelling makes you life richer.

“Take a break from this world
and we’ll feel miles away from the places that we used to be

as we lay in the sand and we stare at the sky
watch the moon dance in white as the stars light your eyes
oh my there’s no place on earth I’d rather be”

Xavier Rudd – Follow the sun

Xavier Rudd makes lovely music. This song is one of my favourites. The lyrics is beautiful and the melody and sound too. It makes me feel so peaceful. Whenever I listen to this song I feel definitely in the Summer mood. I will always follow the sun. This song is about cherishing the little moments in life 🌞

“So follow, follow the sun,
The direction of the bird,
The direction of love
Breathe, breathe in the air,
Cherish this moment,
Cherish this breath
Tomorrow is a new day for everyone,
Brand new moon, brand new sun”

Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole – Somewhere over the rainbow

This song is also one of my favourite songs ever. The melody, the sound and the lyrics is just perfect. I also love the singer so much. The singer died on a young age, just 38 years old because of obesitas. It’s such a sad story. I listen to this song so much and especially during Summer. It’s such a relaxing song 🌈

“And I think to myself what a wonderful world”

  • HONNE – Coastal love

I remember that I found this song on a list of Spotify of surf music. I love to find music just randomly. I love HONNE. They make so beautiful music. This song is perfect for a day on the beach. I get that surf and beach vibes 🌊

  • Crystal Fighters – Plage

Crystal Fighters is one of my favourite bands ever. It’s a band of electro, folk and indie. This is a Spanish/English band. The band’s origin is Navarra in the north of Spain and now they’re located in London. They also have a lot of concerts in Spain. I really want to go one. This song is such a great song for beach time in the Summer. It’s perfect and make me so happy. I also love the arty video clip.

  • Crystal Fighters – Love natural

I love this song of Crystal Fighters so much too 💕. I heard it a lot when I went to a surf camp in Spain a few years ago. This song makes me so happy and the video is also beautiful. I get the melody of this song so fast in my mind. I love this genre of music so much.

  • The Vaccines – Wetsuit

This song means so much to me as I always listen to it when I’m going to surf. I’m still a beginner surfer but I really enjoy to be in the ocean and enjoy the waves. I can stand on the surf board but I still have to practice a lot to actually ride waves. This song is so awesome and I love the Instagram video. I saw The Vaccines once in a concert in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and it was really awesome. There was even a person who wore a wetsuit during that concert, haha so funny!

  • Drums – Let’s go surfing

This is again a song which I love to listen before I go surfing. I get that surfing vibes. The melody is upbeat and is really nice. I also find it funny that in the video you just see the guy running instead of surfing.

“Wake up, it’s a beautiful morning honey, while the stars are still shining
Wake up, would you like to go with me
Honey, take a run down to the beach
Oh momma, I wanna go surfin”

  • Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz remix radio edit)

OMGGGG THIS SONG ASDFGHJKJL I JUST EVERYTHING 😍😍😍 I love it so much. I also especially love this remix of this song. It’s just so beautiful, relaxing and calming. I also loved the video so much because you can see the ocean and the waves. I don’t need more to feel real happiness in my heart.

  • Mandelbarth – Palmtree

This is such a great Summer song. I like the lyics and the sound. I found this song on a Youtube playlist of Mr. Revillz who has beautiful songs 🌴🌞

“Under the palm trees is where we dance tonight
Back then it felt like a roller coaster ride
Oh! Under the palm trees, where I found my love”

  • DJ Antoine with James Gruntz – Song to the sea

Okay, so this is still one of my favourite songs ever. I will tell you a short story about this song. This one of my ex’s favourite songs too. It’s because of him I know this song. I always listened to this song with him. It was for me so difficult to listen to this song and not remind myself of him and our time together. I always ended up crying listening to this song. Now, I’m happy I can listen to this song again without crying and just feeling happy. I think it’s important to be able to listen to your favourite songs even though when it remind you of that person. I love the original song but this colloboration is just perfect. My ex was Swish and DJ Antoine is a Swiss house, electro DJ and producer from Basel. The lyrics is so beautiful and remind me of Summer time and how much I love to be young, wild & free

“I beg you, raise your water to the feet of mine
So I can dip my toes, remember what it’s like
Just feeling free and having all the time I need
This is why I sing a song to the sea”

  • Vance Joy – Riptide

I always listened to this song on a surf camp. I love this song really so much. I also love the video because the video just relate so much to the lyrics. I also read on Youtube that the meaning of the song was that a girl was kidnapped and that the person made her sing this song but if she sang it wrong they would hurt her hence why her make up was smudged through the video. I first didn’t understand the video so I had to read the comments. I’m always late to get things hahah xD I think it’s such a deepful meaning behind this song. I’m also scared of dentists and the dark so I can really late to this song.

I hope you all liked this surf/beach playlist. Which one is your favourite song? Can you relate to my playlist? If you have any songs to add to this playlist let me know. I would love to know your thoughts and I always love to discover new music. Music is life 🎶😍

Much love ❤,

xoxo Christina
