It’s not a long list for #stuckonrepeat this time because I have been binge watching all of the TV! For the full playlist click here.
Cold Little Heart – Michael Kiwanuka
I’d caught snippets of this so many times before hearing it (and being able to Shazam it) on Big Little Lies that I genuinely thought I was being haunted by a song. The instrumental and harmonies are just… *sighs*. This is the full ten minute version because life is short so fill it with good things.
Favourite lyric: Maybe this time I can be strong / But since I know who I am / I’m probably wrong
The first few bars of this song has me feeling warmth on my skin; it’s sunshine in musical form and makes me think of languid limbs and lovers by the sea. I was transported to my happy place one March afternoon by a busker in the South Kensington tunnel en route to a V&A exhibition and I think his song was the highlight of the afternoon.
Favourite lyric: Why wait any longer for the world to begin / You can have your cake and eat it too / Why wait any longer for the one you love / When he’s standing in front of you
We’re all still left wondering if the showmance between JLo and Drizzy was just a subtle tactic to get rights for the sample of If You Had My Love but even if it was, it was worth it. A sexy little number.
Favourite lyric: If you had my love / And I gave you all my trust/ Would you comfort me?
I’ll Come Crashing – A Giant Dog
This was stuck in my head after watching Girlboss and it’s replaced Too Funky as the best song to get me out of bed. It’s feisty, angry and very kick ass. Need something done? Play this and feel awesome.
Favourite lyric: Nothing in my nature tells me not to do bad things / I know that I really should be good tonight.
Sleep No More – Jack Savoretti
It wouldn’t be a #stuckonrepeat post without an appearance from ol’ Jack. The album was on loop for most of March as I went to the last gig of the Sleep No More Tour at the Royal Festival Hall; an amazing night that had everyone up in their seats and the aisles (and even me in front of the stage!) dancing. This is one of my favourites especially because of the whistling. You can’t beat a song that has whistling!
Favourite lyric: I need the love you give me
