May Music Loves.

      It's been quite awhile since I've shared my favorite music on the blog! My starred playlist on Spotify has been rapidly growing over the past month, so I thought I'd share some of the songs that have been on repeat with y'all. My music tastes have been all over the place lately (which hopefully is a good thing for someone who wants to work in radio?), and I've been listening to everything from songs that came out decades ago to songs that are hot on the charts.

  • "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven" by Phil Collins 

     I've been a long-time Phil Collins fan, but I've never really known how much I loved this song until now! I was listening to his greatest hits album on Spotify last week, and when this song came on I literally started dancing, and have been listening to it non-stop since then! Such a fun, catchy beat, and I just love his voice!

  •  "Crush (Dance Mix):" by Jennifer Paige

    Did anyone really think they could get through a post of my favorite songs without at least one 90s one-hit wonder in there? ;-) Didn't think so! Jennifer Paige's song Crush was a 1998 hit that peaked at #3 on the Billboard charts (fun fact), but I recently discovered the dance mix of this song, and I am in love! I love it so much more than the original. It is so peppy and upbeat, and definitely has that classic 90s dance anthem feel to it.

  • "Problem" by Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea 

     This song is just too fun! I love Ariana's voice, I know I'm definitely not the first person to say this but she reminds me of a younger Mariah Carey. This is the perfect song for getting over a dumb guy and reminding yourself that it's time to move on! Perfect song to drive around to in the summertime with all of your girlfriends in the car; music blasting, sunroof open and the windows down!

  • "The Way It is" by Bruce Hornsby

      I think that the piano playing in this song is absolutely gorgeous! I love it so much that I have even been listening to instrumental versions of the song. The lyrics to this song also have a very thought-provoking message, which certainly can't be said about a lot of newer pop music today.

  • "Forever" by Haim

     I first heard of Haim last fall during one of my school breaks. I was visiting home and watching Saturday Night Live with my parents when they performed. A few months later, I started hearing this song by them featured on Target commercials. I really liked it! For some reason this song reminds me of summer... but I like summer, so that's a good thing!! I like some of Haim's other songs as well.

     What are some of your favorite songs right now? Do share!
