Muses: Music That Inspires

Hello my fellow lovely bloggers!

I have been racking my brain for hours on what to write. Nothing is coming to me today sadly, but not all is disappointing! I had an idea to share some songs with everyone that I enjoy, and hopefully you’ll find one or two you like as well. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment and if you want more of the tunes I rock to leave a like so I know. Without further ado, here are some awesome listens.
I adore K. Flay as an artist she has a lot of amazing songs but this one popped up on my Youtube feed today. Her raspy voice is soothing but still feminine, which adds to the soothing feeling of this song.  The original song is good as well, but there’s something about the beat and added music to this song that makes me fall in love. This is what I’m currently listening too on repeat.

Oh Missio, a band I just heard on the radio when I was driving one day. I like the light, airy beat to the music, definitely a head bobbing with the headphones on kind of song. The lyrics inspire me to just be myself and if you don’t like it, well the song title speaks for itself. 

So, this song really shocked me at how much I liked it. I was never a fan of the Jonas Brothers, honestly I couldn’t name any songs they have song. When this came up on my Spotify shuffle, I was instantly hooked to the opening beat, and I still am. The emotions in the song lyrics, the dance moves and just both the singers really got me into this song. Showing me how much Nick Jonas has grown as an artist.

If you know me picking a Panic! At The Disco song wouldn’t surprise you, as I tend to play their albums on repeat at least once a week. I picked this song because it has a special place in my writing. I’ve listened to this song on repeat while I’ve written poetry and short shorties. The beat is simple but mellowing helping keep me focused and the lyrics are very sweet. Plus, Brendon Urie’s singing voice is hands down one of my favorite things to listen too. 

Last, but not least, my girl Kesha. I’ve always had fun listening to her music, dancing, joking but never taking her lyrics seriously. When she released this song I was worried at what direction she would go. The opening had me on the edge of my seat because I knew this could go really great or really badly. I felt like I held my breath until this song was over and breathed a sigh of relief when I realized how good it really is. The lyrics just hooked me and I feel like it could fit anyone at least at some point in their lives. Also, the piano had me rocking out

These are just a few of the songs you can find me listening to on a regular biases. I have so many more songs that inspire me or have touched me on a deeper level. Also, a lot that are just for fun. I listen to all genres of music, there’s too many great artists in this world not too. I hope you enjoyed checking this small list out. If you did I will do more in the future.

  1. Holy crap, Holly!

    This is probably my favorite of your posts so far. Amazing how music can inspire when you think you have nothing to say. At almost 47 years, I think I’m probably at least 20 years older than you, but I enjoyed all these songs and, thanks to having an almost 12-year old daughter, was already familiar with all these artists but K. Flay & Missio.

    I liked them all a lot but loved “Northern Downpour”, which reminds me of something one of my favorite bands, Guster, would do (also, thanks to me, one of my daughter’s favorites!). I’m going to share these songs with my daughter soon, though I’d let her watch the “Middle Fingers” video long before the one for “Close”.

    In your comments about K. Flay’s “High Enough”, you mention the original, and I assume you’re referring to her original. But for me, the original “High Enough” was performed in the early 1990s by the supergroup Damn Yankees, comprised of Ted Nugent of “Cat Scratch Fever” fame, Jack Blades from Night Ranger, Tommy Shaw from Styx, and drummer Michael Cartellone. You can hear the song and watch the video here:
    I’m interested to hear what you think.

    Thanks for a great, thought-provoking, just-what-I-needed-to-burn-off-the-last-of-my-energy-before-I-go-to-bed post!

    Take care, be well, and good night!

    1. Thank you soooo much for the feedback. It really means a lot to me. I was nervous about posting this because I’ve never done anything like the post before. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Honestly I never would have thought you were that much older than me. I’m glad I can inspire you with some great tunes! I can understand not wanting to show a 12 year old the Close video haha. I will definitely check out that video you linked later. What I meant by remix is she did a different cover of the song but the remix beats on the one I posted are most more capturing. You know, just because of this comment I’ll post another one in the future. Haha. You inspired me! I hope everyone enjoys this as you have. I absolutely love Panic but Northern Downpour is that hidden gem they have. I like to share it when people ask what I listen too of theirs even though there’s soooo many more.

  2. Northern Downpour is one of my all time favorite songs!!! Got so excited that you added it. I feel like not a lot of people know that song, especially in comparison to some of Panic’s other works. It’s incredibly beautiful ❤
