Thursday Thirteen :: Songs I've Been Loving Lately

Another Thursday has come, the first one in February! How has the first month of 2017 already flown by? This is what happens though. I never used to understand the phrase "The days are long but the years are quick" until I became a mom. Or, maybe it's just as I get older. Who knows? So, I thought I'd share thirteen songs I've been loving lately. By the way, I listen to a mix of different kinds of music. So, without further delay here is my list of thirteen songs on I've been loving lately. You can click on the song title to open it on Spotify and listen to your hearts content. 

1. Something Wild by Lindsey Stirling, Andrew McMahon :: This song is instrumentally interesting and Andrew's voice is smooth and familiar. 

2. Closer by The Chainsmokers, Halsey :: I'm not a huge fan of the actual lyrics. I mean, I don't connect to them or anything. But, the sound of the actual song is dang catchy.

3. Ordinary World by Joy Williams :: This is a cover of a popular Duran Duran song done by one of my favorite female voices. I first heard Joy Williams in the Christian music realm and then in the duo known as The Civil Wars. 

4. 3:20 by Colony House :: There's just something about the music to this one that draws me in from the first few notes. I didn't even know until very recently that two of the four band members are sons of Christian music icon Steven Curtis Chapman. 

5. Stronger Than We Think by Danny Gokey :: Way more than an American Idol contestant, I love his voice and his songs are uplifting. This song has a great message and it sticks in my brain.

6. Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran :: Great beat and come on, it's Ed Sheeran. Love his voice.

7. Yours If You Want It by Rascal Flatts :: One country group that I truly love. There's something about their voices and songs that makes me smile. This song makes me think of my hubby.

8. Hell Would Have to Freeze Over by Catherine McGrath :: Another country but I love songs that are acoustic and have a simple, beautiful melody.

9. Beautiful Messes by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family :: The words of this song are always much needed for my soul. I love it. "Ain't it time we start laying it down?" Yep, we all carry around so much stuff we don't need anymore. 

10. This Town by Niall Horan :: Okay, so a member of One Direction. I know I'm not a teenager but there's a sweet, simplicity to this song that makes me want to listen to it over and over.

11. Fall Afresh by Kari Jobe :: Her voice is sweet and this song touches me like most of hers do.

12. Be Revealed by Grayson Reed :: This duo is brand new to me but the song feels like an old friend.

13. Still Into You by Ashley Tisdale, Chris French :: This is a remake of one of my favorite Paramore songs. I know, I tend to like acoustic covers of songs. I also never thought Ashley Tisdale would make an appearance on my Thursday Thirteen but I can't deny that I like this song.

Let me know if there is a song I should know about or if there's a particular song you now love thanks to my list.
