5 Songs I Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood

This song has been on repeat since I discovered it. I literally cannot play this enough. At home, in the car, at work, in the shower. I love all versions of this song. It’s a slow, seductive beat with just a slight bounce in its step. It’s soft enough to jam to if you’re feeling mellow, but there’s enough to the song that you can sing it at the top of your lungs if you’re feeling it (which I usually am). I love the whole album (I Love You), but this track has stuck out to me since day one.

2. Chocolate by the 1975

Upbeat and poppy, this song brings some beautiful English blokes to the forefront. I’m going to be honest – most of the time I have no idea what the lyrics actually are (even after Googling them),  but you better believe I still sing along in a slurred, lisp-ish kind of way. This jam reminds me of what Oasis would be if they were thrown into a blender with some obnoxious bubble gum pop and what resulted was the best smoothie you’ve ever tasted. I’m anxiously awaiting their newest album.

3. Explode by Patrick Stump

When FOB went on their hiatus, I was angry and resentful, so I mostly ignored all of the members for a good time. That included the time period when Patrick Stump went solo. Spotify recommended the album to me a few days ago after I’d been listening to some questionable tunes and some Fall Out Boy and I gave the album a listen and this song nearly made me fall out of my chair I was dancing so much. The rest of the album is all right (Patrick, you’re better with the band) but dude, this song blows the roof off of the building.

4. The Mother We Share by CHVRCHES

I know this is total hipster stuff, but really, this jam is hard to shy away from. There are some sick beats happening and then this slightly Ellie Goulding-ish vocal comes in and all hope is lost for you resisting this jam. I usually don’t like music like this, but something about this song is too catchy for its own good.

5. Electric Feel by MGMT

I always freak out when this song comes on Pandora when I’m in the shower and I never actually listened to MGMT in excess until a few days ago. This is the one song I keep coming back to, though. When I’m not listening to it, I’m thinking about it. When I’m not thinking about it, I’m listening to it. This is a perfect song to turn on at 4:56 when you need that little extra boost to get through your work day. You’ll be lost in the solar beats and and soothed by the gentle rocking motion until you’re ready to walk out that door in peace after a long day. Seriously, I love this band.

I have these songs on a playlist to themselves on Spotify and I just listen to them over and over again at work. You’d think I would get sick of em, but they’re just that good.

What song(s) can you not get enough of right now?

    Pretty much listening to the new Hey! Hello! album on repeat right now, especially “How I Survived The Punk Rock Wars”. Need to get back to my 1,000 Recordings this week, though . . .

    I love your descriptions! I get stuck on songs and listen to them over and over for an embarrassingly large number of times in a row. Fortunately, no one knows I’m that obsessive because I’m wearing earbuds. ;-)

  4. You have no idea how good it feels reading this….considering I kind of starting singing along to my iPod after coming home from a gig the other week, and then proceeded to have a mini-mosh at the bus stop the next morning. Oh dear…

    Anyway, I should probably make some contributions:

    Hungry Kids of Hungary – The Vactioner.
    So I started with the second album, and recently got the first. I want to play this over, and over, and over, and over again…

    Pearl Jam – Of the Girl
    This isn’t even my fave track, but I’m seriously pumped about Pearl Jam coming back to Australia in January for festival shows (won’t mention how many times I’ll be going just yet)

    Bernard Fanning – Departures
    Saw this guy on Friday night, was lead singer in Powderfinger and now back doing solo work. There may be a tear or two during this one

    Karnivool – Nacash
    The band responsible for public displays of music appreciation the other week. Not everyone’s thing, and definitely better in the context of an album but…still good!

    Now to check out what everyone else has been mentioning…. :)

    Excellent picks! Hard to narrow it down, but off the top of my head…

    Doldrums – “Anomaly”
    Telekinesis – “Lean on Me”
    Washed Out – “It All Feels Right”
    Cayucas – “East Coast Girl”
    John Legend – “Made to Love”

    Love this post! SO easy to read, love your writing style. Never heard of sweater weather, but thanks very much for getting this song to me! I sometimes ruin songs by listening to them on repeat but its just something i cant help doing!

    • Thanks so much! Glad I could spread my love of Sweater Weather. It’s such a wonderful song.

      I’m so bad about listening to songs I love on repeat but I just can’t help it!

  7. Sweater Weather and Electric Feel are two of my favs as well. This might sound weird, but they’re the kind of songs I like to lock the door and dance to. :)

    Am I horrible person for not being on board with The 1975?
    Otherwise, I totally feel your picks <3

    Hey man… Very nice blog

    I also can’t stop listening to Sweater Weather and Chocolate… Another song I can’t get enough of lately is LORDE’S “Tennis Court” which I find it way better than ‘Royals’… Epic songwriting for a 16yo. I love the line “I’ll see the veins of my city like they do in space”

    Want to know a song that’s been in my mind for 16 years now? 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins…. I listened to it the first time when I was a little kid and I still listen to it almost every day and still find it amusing.

    • Thanks so much!

      I totally agree with you about Tennis Court. That album blew me away in general, so I love all of it. I can never grasp the fact that she’s just sixteen.

      The Smashing Pumpkins are timeless! Love them so hard. I’m like that with Michael Jackson songs. Been listening to most of them for at least 21 years and they never get old.
