Bastille (song of the week)


I have been binging on Bastille recently, but this song is my personal favourite of all. The video leaves something to be desired, but it’s juxtaposition of light and dark speaks to the song’s balance of power and simplicity. I have fallen in love with it completely, the kind of song that you can blast at full volume but leaves you quietly contemplative every time.

Plus, it speaks to me on a personal level.

UCD choral scholars (song of the week)

This is the best acapella group I have ever heard – perfectly in tune. Also, the soprano part on the second stanza is unbelievable. It is wonderful to hear traditional English ballads being carried on to the younger generation.


Side note: I want this song sung at my funeral. Or I’ll sing it when I am dying, or something.
