Mood Music

I love being able to share music between friends; it’s such a good way to discover new artists. A friend of mine introduced me Zaz a couple days ago and it has been playing nonstop. Even if you don’t speak French, you can still fall in love with the jazzy beats. If you would like to listen to the full album for free, check out their music and many more on Spotify.

Zaz – “Je Veux”

Lyrics Translation: Je Veux –  I Want

Give me a suite at the Ritz hotel, I don’t want that
Chanel’s jewellery, I don’t want that
Give me a limo, what would I do with it?
Offer me staff, what would I do with it?
A mansion in Neufchatel, it’s not for me
Offer me the Eiffel tower, what would I do with it?

I want love, joy, good spirit
It’s not your money that will make me happy
I want to die with a hand on my heart
Let’s go together, let’s discover my freedom,
Forget all your prejudice, welcome to my reality

I’m fed up with your good manners, it’s too much for me
I eat with my hands, I’m like that
I speak loud and I’m direct, sorry
Let’s end the hypocrisy, I’m out of it
I’m tired of double-talks
Look at me, I’m not even mad at you, I’m just like that

I want love, joy, good spirit
It’s not your money that will make me happy
I want to die with a hand on my heart
Let’s go together, let’s discover my freedom,
Forget all your prejudice, welcome to my reality

This is Atlas Genius‘s first single, Trojans, and I am in absolute love with their music so far. I am a bit behind since this has been released for a while but it is definitely on repeat this week with the car windows down and the volume turned high.

I always find it difficult to answer the questions, “So what type of music do you like to listen to? To be honest, depends on my mood. However, I love getting music recommendations or stumbling upon some old favorites. Here is what’s been going through my speakers.

Lennon Wall

Wander down a back street by Grand Priory Square in Prague, pass by a bridge full of locks, and you’ll find yourself in front of the Lennon Wall (for more simple instructions you can use GPS on a phone like I did). The Lennon Wall, a cement wall covered with Lennon-inpired graffiti and Beatles quotes, is layered with paint symbolizing youth ideals of love and hope. Individuals have been painting this wall since the 1980s when Czechs used to write about injustices that later caused a clash between the outspoken youth and security police. The wall is constantly changing, but the message still remains the same. If you have a bit of spare time when in Prague, check out this collaborative artwork.

Song of the Week

Boy With A Coin

by Iron & Wine

The sentiment of Spanish culture in this music video is done beautifully. The choreography is absolutely stunning with swift moves and a slight sexual air. Contentment may seem like the appropriate word for this song. But whatever you feel after this, its magnetic. Its hard to view only once. Watch and see.

Loca

by Shakira

I hope this is not the case, but if you haven’t heard of Shakira yet, I hope you take the time to listen now.  She just came out with another latin pop album this October called Sale del Sol. It is and will be another album that I plan to obliterate and put on repeat. This video, Loca was filmed in the beautiful city of Barcelona. Check out a preview above. If you like it, watch the full version here or the making of the video here. For the entire album go to iTunes. Enjoy.
