It’s been soooo long since I last posted a Tune Tuesday post! But I’ve decided to FINALLY return to this feature and share my summer playlist! It’s a bit late, considering it’s almost the end of August, but oh well!
1. WILD – Troye Sivan and Alessia Cara
Troye Sivan is brilliant! I first discovered him at SitC two years ago when I heard Happy Little Pill.
2. Chasing Shadows – Matt DeFreitas
I heard Matt DeFreitas singing in the open mic room at SitC this year and I immediately went on Youtube to discover more of his covers! Chasing Shadows is an original song by Matt.
3. Heathens – Twenty One Pilots
I recently discovered Twenty One Pilots and I’ve had this song on repeat ever since!
4. Stressed Out – Twenty One Pilots
Another song I love by Twenty One Pilots (and the first song I heard by them!).
5. Ride – Twenty One Pilots
Can you see a theme running through this playlist?! Btw, you have to check out Alex Aiono’s cover – it’s amazing!
6. Bury It – CHVRCHES and Hayley Williams
I literally love anything with Hayley Williams, and since CHVRCHES is great too, this is one of my favourite songs I’ve been listening to this summer.
7. Don’t Let Me Down – The Chainsmokers and Daya
So I’m not that keen on the dance element to this song, but it is just so catchy and it’s the perfect summer tune! Daya is amazing! And she’s only 17!!!!! (I mean, she does look really young but still…)
8. This Is What You Came For – Calvin Harris and Rihanna
Does anyone else think that this doesn’t really sound like Rihanna? I was surprised when I found out she was the singer! This is another song I’ve had on repeat all summer.
9. Treat You Better – Shawn Mendes
Love this song!
10. Back to Church – Alyson Stoner
11. Snow White – Christina Grimmie
You might remember that Christina Grimmie sadly passed away at her concert a few months ago. I was just starting to discover more of her original songs at the time (I’d previously been listening to her covers). Snow White is probably my favourite song by Christina Grimmie. I also love Shrug, Cliché and Anybody’s You.
12. Send My Love (To Your New Lover) – Sam Tsui, Madilyn Bailey, Alex G and Kurt Hugo Schneider
This song was originally by Adele, but I have to be honest, I’m not that keen on it. However, the cover done by Sam Tsui, Madilyn Bailey, Alex G and Kurt Hugo Schneider is just incredible!
13. Wiser – Madilyn Bailey
Madilyn Bailey is one of my favourite Youtubers and her song Wiser features on her debut original songs album.
14. Into You – Ariana Grande
Another catchy song!
