Top albums of the year (so far)

lol so I only have two favs…

2. The Ting Tings – “Sounds From Nowheresville”

Super catchy – I love.  The first songs are better than the last ones.  The last ones are pretty bad in my opinion, but the first few make up for it!  Only 10 songs on the album, I would’ve loved more, but we got some solid tracks here!

Tops:

Give it back

Hang it Up

Hit Me Down Sonny

“surprised that I actually like it song”: Guggenheim

1.  Lana Del Rey- “Born to Die”

Undoubtedly, my favourite & most-played album is Lana Del Rey’s “Born to Die.”  Absolutely amazing, and unlike any album I’ve ever listened to throughly before.  Admittedly, I don’t love every one of the 15 songs on the album, but the good songs are really, really good and definitely outweigh the weaker/not-as-good ones.  The single “Born to Die” is the one that got me hooked, even after the first time watching the music video – (I think watching with the music video had a bigger impact than just listening to the song alone would have had) – I was so intrigued.  The music was not like something I had listened to before- I LOVED the classic sounding style it had, combined with the beat in the background; I think the chorus is amazing and catchy.  Cannot say enough good things about that song, it is so haunting and beautiful.

As far as the rest of the album goes, there are some SUPER fantastic songs that have really catchy chorus but are really different & refreshing.  I love a good Katy Perry or Rhianna, but Lana is just different in the best way possible.  These are songs for any occasion.  I highly recommend going on YouTube and searching her older music videos, there are some gems there: Kill Kill, Kinda Outta Luck, 

Other favs (really hard to choose!):

This is What Makes us Girls

Radio

Without You

Off to the Races

National Anthem

Just another note: You may have noticed that ultra-smash hit “Video Games” isn’t in my favourite pics!  I do like the song, but it is a bit too slow for me to consider it a favourite!
