Stuck on Repeat… November and December 2016

Yikes, this one is a tad late coming but better late than never! It’s just a short compilation for the end of the year as there was a lot of wailing along to Mariah’s classic Christmas tune. To listen to the full playlist just click here and don’t forget to follow. 

Paint It Black – Ramon Djawadi (Westworld Soundtrack)

Westworld became a must-see this past Autumn and one of the many things that made it work was the brilliant soundtrack using well known contemporary songs on a honkytonk piano. Weird, but wonderful. This is one of my favourite Stones songs which I almost didn’t recognise at first!

Favourite lyric: No actual lyrics in this version! 

Enjoy The Silence – Ki:Theory

I heard this on a trailer for the live action Call of Duty film and loved the even darker, industrial version Ki:Theory has created. Check out their version of Stand By Me too. 

Favourite lyric: All I ever needed / All I ever wanted was here in my arms

You Made Your Bed (So Lay In It) – Travis Garland

I caught this on an Instagram video that had a couple dancing bachata. It’s punchy and vengeful and a little kick ass too. 

Favourite lyric: I know you think of me tonight / When you got no one by your side

Reflecting Light – Sam Phillips

I have Gilmore Girls to thank for this one and the wonderful A Year In The Life Of specials that came out late November. It’s a beautiful song that comes at a beautiful moment in the finale (no spoilers from me here) and it stuck with me. 

Favourite lyric: And the moon’s never seen me before / But I’m reflecting light

Careless Whisper – George Michael

It feels like 2016 just couldn’t let things be, it had to take some of the most influential musicians and artists away from us. The year ended how it started, with a shock death and this one really got to me because I feel like I’ve grown up on so much of his music. This song is proof that good music never ages. 

Favourite lyric: Maybe it’s better this way / We’d hurt each other with the things we want to say
