RY X - Sweat
This song is close to my heart. It's not a coincidence that I'm posting this song on this day. Today is Peach's birthday and this song always makes me think of him. We had just started seeing each other and I spent most of the days in "The shoebox" (what we called his old flat) with him but eventually I had to go home to wash clothes, do some uniwork or just sort my life out and it was painful to get on the train. He would walk me to the station and wait with me until the train came and we said our goodbyes. Always listened to this song on the way back to Cardiff and not once without being moved to tears.
 
Have a listen to Sweat by RY X! Beautiful melancholic guitar, haunting vocals and always a stunning video to go with!
 
Without further ado! Enjoy.

Baths - Worsening
 Another one of my favourites. When I first discovered this song I had it on repeat for ages. It was just something about it that I couldn't and didn't want to get out of my head. I had some difficulties hearing what he was singing so I googled the lyrics and found that they were just as good as the rest of the song. Fantastic. Have a listen and see for yourself!
 
 

Birth was like a fat black tongue
Dripping tar and dung and dye
Slowly into my shivering eyes


I might walk upright
But then again
I might still try to die

Never prayed, never paid any attention
Never felt any affection
Never a lot of thought to life


I might walk upright
But then again
I might still try to die

Where is God when you hate him most
When the mouths in the earth come to bite at my robes
Hell that sits below, of you would do well to bellow
At the cold, the lifeless, the worsening souls


Where is God when you hate him most
When the mouths in the earth come to bite at my robes
Hell that sits below, of you would do well to bellow
At the cold

Iron & Wine - Naked As We Came
 This song played on acoustic guitar always takes me back... It's a very beautiful song with a melody and lyrics that make me feel melancholic. This song has always felt like it's too short, whenever I listen to it and it ends I always feel that it was too soon. Not very strange considering it's only 02:30 which is about one minute shorter than your average pop-song. I think I just never wanted this song to end because it used to bring me to tears but in the best way possible. Now it doesn't bring me to tears anymore because the person it used to remind me of has become a stranger, but the song still deserves a place in my playlist for all those other times.
