It's the start of the rainy season again. We all love to listen to songs that match the weather.
There are a lot of songs released by famous musicians that have gained popularity over the years. In short, these songs never get old. Here are 8 songs that are perfect, especially on cold and rainy days.
1. Kitchen Sink by Twenty One Pilots
Twenty One Pilots' songs are usually deep. You need to listen to the whole song repeatedly for you to get a grasp of what they're trying to say. Tyler Joseph the vocalist, said in an interview that the meaning of this song is finding your purpose. Especially for those who are dealing and battling depression and the thought of suicide.
2. Redbone by Childish Gambino
This song is very popular and sung by Donald Glover (also known as Childish Gambino). Redbone is a colloquial term used to refer to a Black person of fair complexion or a mixed-race person. In the song, Childish Gambino is admonishing his redbone girlfriend for failing to give him the satisfaction he desperately craves for. He goes on to tell her to stay alert because that is the only way their relationship can ever work.
3. Vibin' Out by FKJ with ((( O )))
((( O ))) or formerly known as June Marieezy is a Filipino singer who rose to popularity because of this song. FKJ (French Kiwi Juice), her husband and her composed this song together. Vibin' out usually means just peacefully relaxing, usually with music that puts your mind at ease, like meditation.
4. Tadow by FKJ and Masego
If you watch the music video, you will be amazed by how awesome they created the song in just one go. Masego is the one who sings and according to them, Tadow was apparently spawned by an improvised jam session between Masego and FKJ. Masego's tender vocal expressions and softened electronic percussions, smoky saxophone riffs and support from awesome synths are just perfect. Masego's vocals, on his usual subject matter of being hypnotized by a mysterious woman, vary from romantic crooning to full-on rapping, held together by the constant repetition refrain of Tadow. All the rhythms are relatively simple, and there's a lot of repetition, but the way every layer fits together makes perfect sense.
5. Cut my Lip by Twenty One Pilots
This song can be interpreted as being about going through the struggles in your mind and life in general, and that would be the cut my lip part. But you keep moving. And you try to be like a lion; that means being courageous through struggles and helping other people along the way.
6. True Love by Coldplay
For those hopeless romantics out there, this song is definitely for you. True Love is perhaps the most open song Chris Martin has ever written. You get the feeling that this is what Chris wanted to get off his chest the most. The link to his personal life and the break up with Gwyneth Paltrow could be interpreted in the lyrics.
7. Gravity by John Mayer
For me, this song gives that feeling of sadness and sorrow. You just want to head straight to the bar and drink that sadness away. It may also mean trying to keep your head grounded while you rise through fame and stardom, or life in general.
8. Photograph by Ed Sheeran
Why should you listen to this song (aside from the fact that Ed Sheeran is singing it)? Because it may also mean that the rain is making you miss your loved one so badly. This song isn't just about mending a relationship with your partner. It's more about restoring the relationship with family, more specifically Ed and his mother.
