This is a playlist of songs that I’m into right now; they’re all chill, acoustic-y, guitar-y, pondering sorts of songs. In my head I call them low-key but not because they could so easily slide into background noise without you noticing them, but if you intentionally listen to them they’re just amazing, really well done songs.
A bit similar to my Afternoon Chilling playlist, but these songs are lot slower and calmer, and a lot more dramatic in the emotions department. My Afternoon Chilling playlist had some relatively upbeat songs whilst remaining chill, whereas this playlist is much more thought provoking.
1. I Found – acoustic (Amber Run)
The acoustic is so much better than the original I can’t even.
2. Heartbeats (José González)
I’m glad this is a lyric video because otherwise I’d have no idea what he’s saying. Beautiful though.
3. Bloom (The Paper Kites)
The first time I heard this song I knew there was no turning back
4. Like Real People Do (Hozier)
It gets you in the heart, doesn’t it?
5. Missed (Ella Henderson)
There’s that bit in the chorus agh, it gets me everytime.
6. Hotel (Kita Alexander)
Promise me you’ll stick with this song until the bridge? Her voice rises an octave and it gets dramatic. Worth waiting for.
7. Say You Love Me (Jessie Ware)
I like that this one starts off not really standing out, but then I find myself listening to it on repeat. “When you say my name!” So dramatic = so good.
8. Yours to Keep (Jordan Mackampa)
This one is more upbeat than the rest but makes an impression nonetheless.
9. Ocean Eyes (Billie Eilish)
This is haunting or something, but it works.
10. Stone Cold (Demi Lovato)
I’m not usually into Demi Lovato, but then this song came up and you can’t deny her talent.
Now that I’m thinking about it, these songs are in the same category as my Ending a Year playlist, which has very acoustic-y songs with thought provoking lyrics. I’ve also realised that most of these songs are love songs. Well, I can’t go past a good love song.
