Stay with Sam Smith

YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OF SAM SMITH?!?!?!
From: giphy.com

If you are not listening to Sam Smith, just stop existing, because you are MISSING OUT on a true talent. I just recently got latched onto this guy and I am slapping myself for not finding him sooner. But it looks like I have found him just in time. His new album “In the Lonely Hour” is being released in June and I am now officially counting down the days (54 left…)

Of course he’s British, and has a falsetto that would make Chris Martin run for the hills. His piano heavy melodies and sultry voice could seriously sing me to sleep forever.

Mr. Smith first caught my attention when I heard the song “Latch” by the electronic group Disclosure. Sam Smith sings the vocals on the song and provides a gorgeous and sexy repertoire of emotions to the over 4 minute long track. Watch the video… there’s hot guys and making out involved…

“Stay With Me”, one of the singles off his upcoming album is nothing short of elegantly beautiful. The powerful and raw lyrics leave you literally breathless. “Why am I so emotional, no its not a good look, gain some self control” are the harsh words sung by Sam himself. The song gives a strict portrayal of what seems like modern day love. A man admitting he’s not good at a one night stand ( “Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand”) but needs love in his life, because he is only human ( “But I still need love cause I’m just a man.”) Smith later sings “This ain’t love it’s clear to see, but darling, stay with me” further proving modern day love and how hard it is for us to justify the physical and emotional elements of a relationship. The song goes on to become a love letter to a lover simply saying “Won’t you stay with me cause you’re all I need.”

Just cue the tears.

Sam Smith is a serious force to be reckoned with and a threat to anyone who has ever opened their mouth to sing a note. I think it’s safe to call him the “Male Adele”.

10 things only a Paramore fan would understand…

If you couldn’t already notice, I am a die hard Paramore fan (going on round 5 this July for MONUMENTOUR). I have met some pretty fantastic and cool people at every Paramore show I’ve been to. The band really does have the best fans in the world. In honor of their newest album “Paramore” turning 1 today I decided to compile a list of 10 things (I believe) only a Paramore fan would understand.

1.) When you miss the “Pressure” flip cause you can’t see…

3.) When you come to the realization you may never hear “All I Wanted” live…

Gaga’s modern day “Gypsy”

Lets be honest here… Lady Gaga is the only person in the world that can make me feel like sleeping in red lipstick is acceptable. That’s why I love her!

I mean…DAMN! image from: weheartit.com

She just constantly oozes this “I DON’T GIVE A $H!+” attitude that makes you want to strut down the street in a leotard.

So as you know, I get inspired randomly and beautifully, I have to say. Last night I caught a tweet from Interscope Records (who follows me on Twitter by the way…) about Lady Gaga’s show at Roseland Ballroom in NYC. You could watch the show live on “getmoregaga.com” and I am so glad I did. It rekindled my love for every Lady Gaga song I ever cherished, including “Gypsy” from her latest extravaganza “Artpop”.

After listening to “Gypsy” on repeat for a couple hours and shamelessly underwear dancing in my dorm room, I realized how much I could relate to it in ways I never thought of before. A college student, struggling to find her place, in her mind, her heart, and her life.

“Sometimes a story has no end, sometimes I think that we could just be friends, cause I’m a wandering man, ” he said to me.”

“And what about our future plans? Does this thing we have even make sense? When I got the whole world in front of me.”

“So I said, “I don’t wanna be alone forever. But I can be tonight. I don’t wanna be alone forever. But I love gypsy life. I don’t wanna be alone forever. Maybe we can see the world together. I don’t wanna be alone forever. But I can be tonight, tonight.”

“So I just packed my baggage and said goodbye to family and friends, and took the road to nowhere on my own. Like Dorothy on a yellow brick, hope my ruby shoes get us there quick ’cause I left everyone I love at home.”

“And then he asked me, he said, “Baby, why do we love each other?” I said, “Honey, it’s simple. It’s the way that you love and treat your mother.”

“Russia, UK, Paris, I’m Italian, Asian, Kompai Africa, India, I’m a gypsy, a gypsy, a gypsy. I’m Latin American, I don’t speak German but I try. Someday in Jakarta, I’m
American, I’m gypsy I Bangkok, Australia, Malaysia, Sweden, Finland, Norway. Be my home just for the day I’m a gypsy, gypsy, gypsy hey.”
