5 Things Friday: Five Songs I am listening to right now

 Happy Friday! I haven’t been on year for a ginormous amount of time, and I have really been missing it. Now is NOT the time to get into everything that has been going on in my life as I am squeezing this in between meetings, but here’s a couple of songs that I have been listening to on repeat lately:

Roan Ash is an incredible South-African artist on the rise. Absolutely loving the song and how well he sings. Definitely of international standards and when this guy breaks the global stage, I will be happy to say I was there from the start!

I think this song is quite old, but I recently found it again. It gets a little loud in the end, but I do love the lyrics

I am so sad I couldn’t get to see this film in cinema. How incredible is Lady Gaga’s voice? Who knew Bradley had that voice in him? I AM SHOOK

I have been listening to this song on repeat since I watched the movie. So beautiful and the reactions of the cast is incredible

To round things off, I am pretty pleased with this song from Sigrid – especially when I am feeling extra dramatic, which happens to be quite a lot.

What have you been listening to?


Music Madness – My slightly deranged playlist

Am I insane? I think so. I’ve been listening to a variety music that I love, and it is so across the board I am very amused with myself. Here it is, judge away, enjoy (some great songs on here if I say so!)

Sam Smith – Writing’s On The Wall

I really, really don’t like Sam Smith. He whines incessantly and sounds like a hysterical teenager. For some reason I can’t get enough of this song though. I loved the movie it was written for, it is very dramatic and melancholic, and sounds like something I should listen to on a rainy day while staring out of the window in a melancholy fashion.

The Weather Girls – It’s Raining Men

So much memories to this song. The Geri Halliwell version is more in the years that I listened to, but I happen to think both are excellent. In the biggest turn of “A Girl can Dream” it is such a great song, full of drama and fun.

Gentleman – Psy

I told you that this was demented. I absolutely love this strange little Korean man though. He is so weird.

Du Has – Rammstein


Eendag as ons groot is – Dewald Wasserfal

Afrikaans music is so cheesy. Like, really cheesy. I find this guy so super adorable and secretly listen to all his songs.

Gangster’s Paradise – Coolio

This song makes me feel so badass. That is it.

Marvin Gaye  – Charlie Puth ft. Megan Trainor

In terms of South-African swearwords this guy has the best surname, trust me. He also has a golden voice and this song works really well – sweet, sexy, the whole shebang.

Sound of Silence – Disturbed

My father used to love the original by Simon and Garfunkel. Since it is a damn near perfect song it is a really risky move to do a remake. However, this is such a worthy remake I can’t be mad. This guy’s voice, the drama, the sheer talent. Goodness. Chills every single time.

So, there you have it. What is on your playlist right now?
