Anyone who knows me will tell you that I have the most random music taste you’ve ever heard. One minute I’ll be listening to pop, then the next minute a bit of smooth jazz will come on. With that said, I don’t expect my music taste to be everybody’s cup of tea. But anyway, here’s the music I’m loving at the moment.
An oldie but a goodie nonetheless. Kind of jazzy, kind of bluesy, fully beautiful. Everything pieces so well together and what’s created is just wonderful. The album has almost a piano lounge kind of vibe, making it perfect for when you just want to chill. It also makes the perfect revision soundtrack, providing yet another reason why Miles Davis is a must-have on your playlist.
John Legend’s voice just fits so well to so many of the Christmas classics that we know and love. And he’s even written some of his own Christmas songs, giving us new songs to enjoy. But perhaps the thing I love most about John Legend’s Christmas album is his version of Baby It’s Cold Outside with Kelly Clarkson. The rewritten lyrics mean it’s now a song about respecting women- and I think we can all agree that it’s much needed in 2019! Well done John!
The ultimate break up album. Alanis Morisette’s soulful voice blends beautifully with the pop-rock feel of the music. The album contains karaoke classics such as Ironic and Hand in My Pocket as well as lesser-known but equally beautiful tracks like You Learn and Forgiven. It’s definitely one of those albums that you want to have to blast out of the speakers. To say it was released in 1995, it’s still a brilliant album!
Perhaps, not as well known without the other three members of ABBA, Benny Anderson has released a solo album of piano instrumentals which is everything you didn’t know you needed. The tracklist includes piano versions of ABBA classics as well as traditional Swedish songs. The album is perfect for studying, relaxing or for falling asleep to. It’s definitely a must-have album!
Okay, I’ll admit I was a sceptic at first, but Jesus Is King is perhaps my favourite album at the moment. Dope melodies. Hard-hitting lyrics. Since the release of this album, you can really notice a change in Kanye. I love Jesus Is King, I don’t really have the words to explain how I feel about it. If you’ve not heard it yet, I encourage you to go and have a listen.

Losing one’s job is painful, it can be one of the most destructive events happening in ones life. I should know I have been through a few of them. Most recently I was laid off March 2nd, 2023. An unexpected shock as the organization I worked for gave no indication there would be any form […]
The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
