Stand By Me has been one of my favourite films since I was forced to watch it as part of Film Studies. I'm very much on the fence when it comes to song covers - like remixes I only tend to like them when an Artist is adding something new to the song. What we have here is a hauntingly beautiful version of the song, which isn't any surprise really because I haven't found one Florence song I dislike (although 'Sweet Nothing' with Calvin Harris comes close). I don't have any idea what Final Fantasy XV is, but it's gifted us 3 new Florence songs so I'm good.
Never judge a song by the video screen shot. I thought that I'd hate this but instead I absolutely love it. The video's got a real nice & colourful retro feel to it which I adore. The music is wonderful with a solid build up leading into the chorus, taking the song to another fabulous level. I don't think the song's all that great lyrically, but thankfully the music is good enough to save it. Plus the video. It's just so cool and this band could have a great future ahead of them. Hey Violet (formerly known as Cherri Bomb) are an American Rock band from California.
So we've just had the lesson on never judging a song by the video screen shot. Now we have one on how a video can make or break a song. I showed the audio of this to CONTROLRadioHQ a few weeks back, and I was the only one who thought this was a tune. Fast forward to now when you've got a video & everyone loves it. This song is quite dark lyrically, musically & visually which I like and the chorus is again fantastic. Banks is an American Singer/Songwriter from California and I will definitely be checking out some more of her tracks.
This song is magnificent. I remember Frankmusic from 'Confusion Girl' and 'Better Off As Two' which is one of my favourite songs and 'Day Break' has joined that list. Music video I'm torn over because on one hand I am a sucker for scenery & there are some beautiful shots. At the same time for how uplifting the song is both musically and lyrically? Would've preferred something to match. His dancing is quite funny and it's nice to see an Artist letting loose in a video, so I'll let him off. Frankmusik is an English SynthPop singer.
For this I thank recommendations and it's a really nice song, which is quite strange for me since I usually dislike Country music. I would've preffered the chorus to be a little stronger musically & the video to match the lyrics but I won't nitpick too much. For a song that's about infidelity the music's quite light & feel good which I like. As with Banks, I look forward to listening to more songs from them. Ward Thomas are a British modern Country music duo made up of twin sisters from Hampshire.
