All the Feels

It's Wednesday morning, and I have a long break between classes, so naturally I'm on YouTube.

Maybe it's because I haven't listened to the radio in a while, so I'm a little out of the loop when it comes to charts and single releases, but to me it sounds like suddenly musicians are extra loved-up. There's the cutesy dance-pop of Becky G, and the 'just give me a chance' party jam from Trey Songz. Then there's John Legend, with the beautiful "You and I":


I had heard it on radio a few times, and liked it purely because it was by John Legend, and his latest album is just golden to me. But then when I saw the video... I don't know if it's because a lot of it is filmed in a chill, slow-motion type of mood that just gets to your emotions, or if it's because of the lyrics, or the message of the song, but I actually felt myself tearing up. In my room, at 10:30 on a random Wednesday, John Legend got me.

Then, because I wanted to keep that moment, I went to listen to Justin Timberlake's "Not A Bad Thing". The video on Vevo tells a story about two documentary filmmakers who are looking for a couple that got with a Justin Timberlake song playing in the background, on a night train.



The fact that the song has now become a public project about love is what intrigued me here. I wanted so badly for them to have found the couple by the end of the video, which is a testament to the power of love. The story of two complete strangers from across the world had an impact on me.
(It reminds me of one of the "[all types of] love conquers all" segments that would have been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show years ago)
And just always did know how to write a song that would convince even the biggest cynic (*cough* *cough*) that love was real...

On the local front, I'm a really big fan of Bucie's "Easy To Love", produced by Heavy K:



Okay, let me get myself together. I have a class to get to- and a reputation to uphold.
