You know how a good song can totally change your mood? That's what Chet Faker's albums do to me. Every morning when I do my makeup (or during the weekend when I look through my Instagram) I put both of his albums on, and honestly it's the best way to start the day. Especially the song " 1998". I have no idea if it's the comforting and slow beat that wakes me up in the more gentle way or just that it's a song (ugh makes any sense?). Then, as soon as I leave the house and hit the bus, I change my playlist to something that is definitely more "vibrant". Oh but can Gooey by Glass Animals count as a vibrant song? Then of course I need a bit of Beyonce. My favorite one is the remix of Drunk in Love with Kanye West. His part is my favorite. Two of my friends and I learned the lyrics of his rap and it's the funniest thing to recite (at ANY time of the day lol). On days that I decide to walk between the bus stop and the school (some days I'm too lazy or the weather conditions are too bad for this 10 min walk so I just take another bus), I can listen to more music. Recently I've discovered the Swedish singer Zara Larsson and I'm smitten with her voice. For now my favorite song is Weak Heart but I did not listen to all her album yet. And when I can listen to more music, this is what I put on, with a recap of the previous songs I mentioned:
