Songs of the Week [22]

Hello there - I'm back and there's a lot of new music to dive into this week, so let's get straight to it.

The first one on the Songs of the Week list is a brand new track by the makers of hit song Rather Be. Clean Bandit have teamed up with the UK's latest X Factor winner Louisa Johnson for her first single since her winner's song Forever Young. Tears is yet another masterpiece of the band when it comes to mixing classical instruments with electronic sounds and Louisa Johnson's voice sounds really powerful and good on it.


Songs of the Week [21]

It's already Monday again and it's the first day of my last week as a university student. I have my final presentation this week, which is why I have been so quiet.

But as promised here's my weekly playlist with the best new songs. It's a week full of bangers among others the newest cooperation of Sigma and Take That and a new Craig David single and I sneaked another German song in again.

I hope you enjoy the music, let me know what you think and I promise that there will be a proper post again next week.

Innuendo Bingo Favourites

Hello there - I thought it's about time to talk to you about another one of my favourite silly and funny radio/TV features. I already showed you my Carpool Karaoke favourites some months ago and today it's time for Innuendo Bingo.

For everyone who doesn't know it already: It's part of Scott Mills' and Chris Stark's weekdays BBC Radio 1 show and in Innuendo Bingo season on once a week. They collect funny innuendo audio clips from TV or radio shows and play them whilst to people have water in their mouth trying not to laugh (or trying to make the other person as wet as possible, I'm never sure).

Sounds weird? It is. And it is super funny and you can even play along if you want to make a mess or your floor needs cleaning anyway.


Songs of the Week [19]

Radiohead are back, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are back and also Justin Timberlake has finally released new music - what a week, let's dive into the music right away.

The first song on this week's playlist is Justin Timberlake's new song which is called Can't Stop The Feeling. It is part of the soundtrack from the upcoming animation movie Trolls and it might become the summerhit of the year. It's happy and makes you bop your head or even dance.

Hotter Then Hell is the next single by my favourite new singer-songwriter of the year 2016 - Dua Lipa. I really enjoy her vocals on every track and this song is particularly sexy and catchy, it's great.

After five years of silence there's new music by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The first single release of their upcoming album The Getaway is called Dark Necessities. It is funky and cool and reminds of some of their older songs from ten years ago.

Private School is by Canadian rock band Arkells. The lyrics are a bit weird, but the music is funky and cool.

Young the Giant is an American indie rock band who are releasing their third album Home Of The Strange in August. The new single which is the second to be released from the upcoming record is called Something To Believe In. Its haunting lyrics and great guitar chords make it a great choice for a single release.

And the last song is the highlight of the week: Radiohead's new single Burn the Witch. They have surprised everyone with their album release yesterday. The new record is called A Moon Shaped Pool and is great! Burn the Witch is the first official single release and it is really good. It sounds ambient, a bit experimental and emotional.

That's it already. Do you like this week's songs? Which one is your favourite? I would love to hear from you.

If you are in need of even more music, feel free to listen to the whole Songs of 2016 (Spotify // Apple Music) playlist or my Currently Listening list (Spotify // Apple Music).


Captain America: Civil War

Twelve superheroes getting into a conflict that ultimately makes them fight each other.

Wow - Captain America: Civil War is 147 minutes of thrilling storytelling. I would say it is the best film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. It is dramatic, witty and thrilling.

It's really good that there isn't one big really bad guy they have to fight (there is someone, but he's not the main problem) all the superheroes are fighting against and that instead they are up against each other. It is an opportunity to get to know our heroes a bit better, what their characters are like as well as how they think and Marvel has taken this opportunity very well. You get to know more about the relationships between them which is brilliant - it adds more emotions to the action-packed film.

Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Spider-Man - it's a bit of work to understand everything going on with all the characters, but it's definitely worth it. If you make sure you're up to date with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (at least with the films) it will be a bit easier to keep up.

The fight scenes are beautifully choreographed and fun to watch. The introduction of the new characters Black Panther and Spider-Man is very well done and the actors very well picked. Especially Tom Holland as Spider-Man is turning the superheroe alliance on its ear. He might be a bit naive but he is so cute and witty at the same time. It is going to be exciting to see the new heroes in their own movies.

All in all, Civil War has a great balance of action scenes like fights and chases and emotional scenes with encounters of the characters either funny, sad or angry. It feels like it's the most thoughtful and mature film in the anthology. Watch it!

If you have seen it already, let me know your opinions in the comment section, I would love to hear them.


Songs of the Week [18]

Looks like the whole Beyoncé album has entered the charts everywhere. And the rest of the charts are several Prince songs - with good reason.

But that's not all there is. I have picked some great new songs for this weeks playlist.

This is what you came for, right? Lot's of new songs. And guess what...

This Is What You Came For is the first song on this weeks list. It is the newest collaboration of dream team Calvin Harris and Rihanna (We Found Love). It's good but not as good as his predecessor.
I have been watching Calvin Harris' Snapchat stories in which he is producing songs for weeks now and was already wondering when the first single is going to be released and here it is.
