Melancholia Mood: A Collab With Fiona

Melancholia Mood: A Collab With Fiona

Hello friends, and welcome to another pit of despair and emotional turmoil courtesy of some incredible music.

Not really…but really.

This post is brought to you by a collaboration with the absolutely amazing Fiona, the mind behind Questions From A Teenager and one of my closest friends in the blogging world.

As is evident, I love music and it’s a love that majority of you share, including Fiona, so we thought we’d put together a lil playlist for you.

A melancholia playlist.

Because honestly, if you’re ever feeling down, music is the only logical response or course of action. Music is one of the most powerful things in the world, and for some reason, when you’re feeling down or sad, it’s this universal thing we all turn to. Melancholy in particular seems like it should be a complete music genre in itself!

So we have a playlist of 20 beautiful songs for you to indulge in, ten from me, and ten from Fiona, which you can find in a Spotify playlist that we have made for your convenience. It’s also a collaborative playlist, meaning once you’ve had a listen to the songs we’ve shared, feel free to add your own songs onto the playlist so we can all be down in the dumps together!

Honestly, prepare for the melancholia mood.

Here are my ten songs:

Human (Acoustic) - Jon BellionIf I Could Fly - One DirectionIn A Week - Hozier, Karen CowleyNotion - Tash SultanaNever Ending - RihannaA Song About Being Sad - Rex Orange CountyPaper Hea

So not only did I shed a tear or two while listening to my own submissions to the playlist, but when I got the chance to listen to Fiona’s picks??? Shivers. Tingles. Tear ducts in over drive. Like I said before.

Prepare yourself.

I love every single one of the songs above in their own special way. Each of them reminds me of a specific time, person, place or feeling and I love the impact music has on us all, especially songs that ignite a sense of melancholia or nostalgia.

For the other half of this collab, make sure you check out Fiona’s picks! She has some of the most beautiful songs on there, some I knew very well, and some that I had never heard before. Rest assured, every single song had me feeling all the feelings.

You can find our Spotify playlist HERE and you can check out Fiona’s blog HERE. Make sure you do. No regrets. Not a single one.

Open Call

Open Call

Hello friends! This is a teeny tiny post – a call to action post, actually.

Since starting this blog back in June last year, I’ve shared some music favourites, new artists, playlists, personal anecdotes and thoughts, interviews and artist favourites, I’ve shared quite a bit, definitely a lot more than I though I would when I started this blog in the first place.

However, some of you have also shared your own discoveries and favourite artists with me, and that is the point on this post!

I’m incredibly keen to grow the community here on my blog and I’d love to invite you all to contribute to some of the content coming up here!

  • If you have an artist you think I might enjoy, or an artist you think is worth a whole lot more than they’re getting (the most basic premise of this blog overall), let me know! Reviews and artist shares are some of my most favourite posts to write, and I’d love to hear any new musicians or bands you’d like to see on You Should Hear!
  • Collaborations! One of my goals for the year was for collaborations in all aspects of my life – especially here on my blog! If any of you are keen to collaborate, work on some blog posts together, link and bring together our audiences, I’d love to get started on something – shoot me an email: youshouldhearbusiness@gmail.com and we can hopefully get started on something!
  • Album reviews – going along the same lines as the first dot-point, if there’s an entire album you’d like to hear my thoughts on, I’d love to give it a listen and write a post about it! New music is literally all I spend my spare time on, and I’m always open to suggestions and requests.
  • If there is a specific type of post that you’d like me to do – one that isn’t necessarily related to music even – let me know in the comments because I’m happily open to anything at all (within reason, obviously). I’m excited to hear what you guys like and don’t like. That said, if there is a post that I’ve done in the past that you liked, let me know and I can do some more!

That’s kind of it! Like I said, short post, short post – but one that I thought was worth putting up, just for some general feedback and input from you guys!

Excited to hear any ideas or comments you guys have!
