Kinky Love – Love Label
Chicago band Kinky Love bring the synth-pop goodness in this week’s playlist.
Sam Smith – Like I Can
If I think about this song too much I’m really not sure how much I like it, I can’t even recognise it when it plays somewhere public. But each time I hear it I feel compelled to SoundHound it so I figure there’s some appreciation going on that I don’t totally understand. I might as well give in and enjoy it.
Kygo feat. Conrad Sewell – Firestone
If you’ve been following The Weekly Playlist for a while you’ll know that I’m a sucker for dance music with a big vocal and melodic hook. I just can’t help it. The chorus in this song fits the bill.
The Rolling Stones – Sympathy For The Devil
In this short extract from a longer film by Jean-Luc Godard, you can watch the evolution of the song as it was written, recorded and re-written in the studio. Behind-the-scenes videos have become the norm for artists these days but this unexpected look into the writing of a legendary song by a legendary band feels like a brand new idea. Watching the studio process from 1968 is just fascinating. Check it out.
Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth – See You Again
Furious 7 gave me a headache which built up really slowly over many minutes of boredom and stayed for the duration of the film. For some reason this song at the end pierced through the fog and got stuck in my head. I’m not really listening to the lyrics on this one, just having some sort of pleasing musical experience. I’ll take it.
