Our Weekly Ten: 10 Songs to Calm Down
...and to chill out. It’s December and the dreaded “zápočtový týždeň” is slowly sneaking into our schedule. Admit it, you won’t be getting enough sleep these days. Your body runs on caffeine and your head is full of Jane Austen or whatever other stuff and your fingers are ready to fall off because of the thousands of papers you have to submit until midnight. This is why you need to let it be for a while. Seriously. For the next 45 minutes, forget the school stuff.
Imagine yourself drinking a cold, perfectly balanced White Russian and not giving a…damn.This is what’s playing in the background and this is your mindset. For now the whole world could end but frankly, nobody cares.
The singer will lead you into a safe dreamy land and then a guy’s voice will disturb the peace and then this celestial tune will come again. Confusing? Yes. But still. Does it work? Yes, it does.
Cajun Dance Party
The epitome of “chilling”. Combining mysteriousness and a certain soothing quality, this song may send shivers down your spine (in a positive way!). To paraphrase the lyrics: “You’ll be electrified, it gives you a peace of mind.”
Brilliant in its simplicity and just lovely. To be honest, you probably wouldn’t need the trumpets or any other instruments in the song, as this could be sung by a random guy in a park and it’d still be equally magical and just full of easiness of living.
Don’t be scared, this is not hip hop. Although these Mancunians never made big waves in indie pop, why not like a song with a catchy guitar riff that makes you feel soaked up with youthfulness? And please, tell me I’m not the only one who loves the title.
Through the Dark embraces the uncertainty of starting from scratch. But the singer is not scared because, after all, it’s her who shapes her future.This is the kind of a positive attitude we all need to adopt. Go get ‘em KT!
If the chorus of a song is “la lalala”, you’re bound to fall in love with it. After mistakes are made, we find out they weren’t so horrible in the first place. And the great thing is every day is a new page. La LaLa…sing yourself into an uplifting experience.
Why would we include a song about an ex-priest vampire hunter drinking blood of villains like lemonade? I don’t know, but the tranquil rhythm and Sky Edwards’s voice got me. And yeah, it’s fun.
Mellow sound, adorable harmonies, whistling. This Aussie band knows how to do it. Can you call a song fluffy and cute? ‘Cause if yes, we’ve got a candidate. And its romantic video clip is a plus.
The Paper Kites
The band’s name comes from “Amour, Imagination, Rêve“ (Love, Imagination, Dream) and that seems to be enough to roughly describe their music. The song shows that even two voices can sound great and create a gorgeous song if you’re inventive. And if the world should end with a bang AND a whimper,somebody please press play on Venus.
We hope this list was helpful in building up your energy. Now, let’s get you back to work! We are sure you’re going to be the bestest, so don’t worry about it too much. Fingers crossed for a heap of A’s in your finals.
