The Bits And Bobs of Lorde- Guest Writer

The Bits And Bobs of Lorde- Guest Writer

Where should I start? I guess most people would start at the beginning, but for some reason, I’m not going too. I’m going to start here:

The click of a computer key, the enter key. It was the day my mom had bought tickets to the Lorde concert. After several weeks of anxious waiting, the day came. My mom and I brought my two best friends. We drove to where the concert was held and after many photos and fuss, we found our seats. To us, it seemed as if we waited forever for the lights to dim. After the introductory group played a few songs, although it seemed like many more, we were ready for Lorde. Or, I guess, we thought we were.

Let’s just say, we were not expecting this.
The lighting was mesmerizing. The lights would flash on and off according to the beat in different colors.
A giant vintage frame held a giant screen. And on the screen several clips were projected during certain songs; but mostly on the screen was a live camera of Lorde.
We had so much fun at the concert! I remember it so clearly, as if it was yesterday.

Now let’s talk about Lorde herself:

Her debut single “Royals” was released August 2013 and was immediately a worldwide hit. It was nominated “Best Song of the Year” by several grand media-outlets and got many different awards, one of them being a Grammy! Just one month later, in September 2013, her album Pure Heroine was released. Many, including me, fell in love with her and her music. She continues to inspire everyone with her music.

Lorde is also a giant fashion icon for teens all around the world.
She has appeared on numerous magazine covers, including Vogue, Clash, and Fashion. Her style is quite unique yet very beautiful.

At the Moment Songs

Usually I have one song I really like at the moment:

Just Breathe (Willie Nelson Cover): I first heard this song browsing YouTube for Willie Nelson songs. It was soon the only song I thought of for awhile. I not only love this song (originally by Pearl Jam), but I love the music video too. Willie Nelson sung this song with his son, Lucas Wilson.

Just Breathe
These Flowers (Martha Wainwright): I had, and still have a great idea for this song but I’m still working on it. My brother even made a device to help me make “it”. I hope that one of these days I will be able to show it to you, whether it’s in the next year (because it will take that long) or the next six years…

These Flowers
Cups (Anna Kendrick): If you read my blog frequently that you know that I love this song so much, I even wrote a post on it (https://misstweenster.com/2013/10/06/when-im-gone-cups/)

Cups
Don’t Forget (Martha Wainwright): My favorite line of this song is “Don’t forget that I always will always love you, just a reminder that I hope you pave your pathway…”

Martha Wainwright

Mirrors (Justin Timberlake): It’s more of one of those songs that I always have stuck in my head (like right now) than my new favorite song, but I will still mention it…

Mirrors
When I Was Your Man (Bruno Mars): I had this song stuck in my head for so long. I was even recording myself singing it… I love all of Bruno Mars’ songs but this is my favorite song.

When I Was Your Man
Count On Me (Bruno Mars): This is the best song ever to sing along too ever, I love it, although maybe not as much as the first time.

Count On Me
It Will Rain (Bruno Mars): I never had much interest in this song until I actually listened to it again and again. It’s funny how sometimes I have to listen to a song more  than once to love it…

It Will Rain

Solitaire (The Carpenters): This is such a great song… Listen to it right now!

Solitaire 

What If (Coldplay): This song never gets old… There are so many great songs out there but this one stands out a lot. I try not to listen to it so much so that I don’t get to tired of it.

What If

The Scientist (Coldplay): I love the ad so much… Be sure to check my blog posts if you like the ad that was done with this song because I definitely will write about it.

The Scientist

Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me (Elton John): I remember singing this song with my dad at the piano when I was really little. 

Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me

Sorry Seems to Be The Hardest Word (Elton John): It’s crazy, but you know how some songs you never listen to even though they are really famous… well, maybe not, but that’s what happened with this song.

Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word

Roar (Katy Perry): She’s got such a powerful voice, especially in this song.

Roar
Royals (Lorde): Why I like this song, I don’t know, but it is pretty good…catchy too.

Royals
Just Give Me a Reason (P!nk): I don’t know what to say except that this song was stuck in my head forever.

Just Give Me A Reason

The Song of the Heart (Prince): Isn’t this a great song? It’s from Happy Feet!

Song of the Heart

Sacrifice (Sinead O’Connor): This song was sung as a tribute to Elton John. I love both versions to this song for different reasons.

Sacrifice

Antes de las Seis (Shakira):  I didn’t discover this song sung by Shakira but song on the Voice… I love this song, even though I don’t really know what it means.

Antes de la Seis

Make You Feel My Love (Adele): Adele, you are great singer!
Make You Feel My Love
One and Only (Adele): Same thing, plus this is my favorite song sung by Adele.

One and Only

Sometimes You Can’t Make it One Your Own (U2): Just recently started listening to U2 again (the last time I listened to it was in Maine a long time ago)…

Sometimes You Can'r Make It On Your Own
Strange Boat (The Waterboys): This is song about how strange life is… I love sing-songy songs like this one. (Does that make sense?)

Strange Boat
Skyfall (Adele): Adele really did a great jog with this song, it worked perfectly with the movie…

Skyfall
Read My Mind (The Killers): This is one of those songs that is perfect for singing along to…

Read My IMind
Human (The Killers): The only thing I don’t like about this song is “are we human or are we dancer”…Whhhhhat?

Human
Let her Go (Passenger): The whole reason why I’m doing this 1000 word post is because of this song… I only just discovered it… Right now it’s my at the moment song…

Let Her Go

La Vie en Rose (Grace Jones): So dramatic!

La Vie en Rose
I Will Survive (Gloria Gaynor): The only thing I don’t like about this song is that it has a end!

I Will Survive

Slipping Through My Fingers (Meryl Streep): I’ve just started learning this song… By the way it’s my highest played song on my iPod…

Slipping Through My Fingers
Lean One Me (Bill Withers): Whenever this song is mentioned I start singing it!
