There were a lot of hype songs this summer, most of which were played daily during my four months off. As a result, I now have no desire to listen to them.
I probably heard this one daily on my commute but I’m still not sick of it. For that reason, Bastille’s “Pompeii” is my pick for the song of summer 2013.
Disclaimer: I didn’t watch the video, so I apologize if it’s corny & makes you dislike the song.
I just love his
British intonation, unique voice, and the random/hilarious inspiration to write a song about Pompeii (for those of you who skipped history class). And, duh, the chanting.
HEY HEY HO AY OH
This amazing live version solidifies Bastille as a band to watch. Headed by Dan Smith, there’s some serious talent in this group. Once I have time
this week is a write off I’m definitely going to check out more from their album, Bad Blood.
I also heard a sweet EDM remix of it at a restaurant but am having trouble finding a good one. But it’s out there so look into it if you’re into that sort of thing – and feel free to share if you find it!
If you close your eyes does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?
