There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.
Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.
Maybe you will find a new favorite.
What is it about Holly Humberstone that merits inclusion to Music Monday? Is it the poppy, keyboard intro? The light drum beat kicking in? The slight lisp in her breathy voice? The guts to dance on a flatbed truck? The screw-you-take-control ending:
Ooh, and I will show myself out
Ooh, I know I adore you
I don’t need you now
Yeah. all of the above, but I adore that voice.
I hope you enjoyed my selection today.
