Five Fave Fridays – Alternative and Pop Week!

I have something for you all that’s still in the works! Just a little secret. For now.

Birdy – Wings

One of the most powerful songs of the year! Fire Within, is comprised of tracks all co-written by Birdy herself. She has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business including Ryan Tedder (Beyonce), Dan Wilson (co-wrote and produced “Someone Like You” for Adele), Rich Costey (Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros) and Ben Lovett from Mumford & Sons. Wow, am I right?

CHVRCHES – The Mother We Share

Lead vocalist, Lauren Mayberry, got a law degree and a masters in journalism before pursuing music. I swear, these artists who’ve garnered degrees previous to “making it big”… they are all solid gold musicians (just like Emeli Sande)! CHVRCHES first made it big on Neon Gold Records  in 2011. Read more about them (and their stance against misogyny) here.

Jessica Mauboy – Pop a Bottle (Fill Me Up)

Jessica Mauboy is back! At first, this song didn’t catch my attention but after discovering that this was her first official single of the album, I have been persuaded by the music video gods to love this song! It’s too cute! I’d like to think that this was the unofficial love-child of Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Cher Lloyd.

Avicii – Wake Me Up

Have you seen this music video? Neither have I. Enjoy some darn good Avicii realness.

Lady Gaga – Machete Kills – Aura

For an artist to be in their own lyric video is something. For Lady Gaga to be in her lyric video has to be something… right? Things could be worse – she could be on another one of her hiatus for months!
