Hi friends! ✨

I can't believe we're more than halfway through September already, that's wild!

All of the songs in this list can be found on Spotify. I will make a playlist of all of the songs featured in Songs From Friends if that's something people would like, lemme know.

On with the songs!

Song Title: "Bloom - Bonus Track"
Artist: Paper Kites
EP: Woodland
Genre: Folk
NKN: This one's from me. I absolutely adore this song, it makes me feel happy and very at peace. It's simply sweetness and my go-to song for Fall.

Song Title: "Two High"
Artist: Moon Taxi
Single: Two High
Genre: Alternative / Indie
Friend: Sunny
NKN: According to frontman Trevor Terndrup '“Two High” is a song about hope, hope for understanding, hope for acceptance, and hope for our future. We were inspired by the simple and universal peace sign. It’s a gesture we would like to see more of' which I think is a pretty good message.

Song Title: "Night Song"
Artist: The Lemon Twigs
Single: Night Song
Genre: Indie / Pop Rock
Friend: Lili - 'It's an acquired taste. Like, it's a little weird at first, but I swear it's cool.'
NKN: That warning was everything, thanks, Lil. But I get it.

Song Title: "Better Than Me"
Artist: The Brobecks
Album: Violent Things
Genre: Alternative
Friend: Tripp - 'This song is a healthy dose of self-deprecation.'

Song Title: "Archie, Marry Me"
Artist: Alvvays
Album: Alvvays
Genre: Indie Pop
Friend: Mo - 'It's bright and hopeful and just lovely.'

Song Title: "Closer" - cover of the Chainsmokers song
Artist: Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox (feat. Kenton Chen)
Album: 33 Resolutions Per Minute
Genre: Jazz /.Swing Music / Ragtime
Friend: Red - 'Kenton's vocals are darling. Honestly, I prefer this version.'
NKN: I love Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox. They take modern songs and redo them in various styles from different decades, the way they arrange their songs is magical. Their tagline is "today's hits yesterday" which is perfect and obviously accurate. Check out their youtube channel here: www.youtube.com/user/ScottBradleeLovesYa

Song Title: "The Cure"
Artist: Lipstick Gypsy
Single: The Cure
Genre: Pop / R&B
Friend: Barbie - 'I'm a sucker for these kind of "love heals all" songs, and you can't tell me it isn't catchy, C.'
NKN: You're right, B. I can't say that. It's got a kind of groove to it that I enjoy too.

Song Title: "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore"
Artist: Demi Lovato
Single: You Don't Do It For Me Anymore
Genre: Pop
Friend: Lupe - 'Hands down this is my favorite Demi song to date. Her vocals slay.'
NKN: I think I have to agree, L. I do have to admit that since I heard this song, it's been in all of my playlists. I love Demi and this song just sticks in my head.

This has been Songs From Friends! I hope everyone liked it. I apologize if it was long-winded, or the layout was confusing. If you like it let me know!

Side note: this is nothing to do with music but I'm so obsessed with Garrett Watts right now, it's not even funny. Go check him out on youtube, he's such a sweetheart. Here's a link ~ www.youtube.com/user/ImCalledGarrettWatts - what a precious man.

Thank you for reading!
