Music Obsessions – August 2018

Music Obsessions

Well…we’re about a week late. Something was nagging me all week that I had forgotten something and then I realized that it was this Music Obsessions segment. So here we are! Better late than never!

River South – JJ Lin

Its not surprise that this one made it here. JJ Lin became a hit with this song back when I was in cegep. Rightfully so, its a special one with some unique qualities to the tune and the style. I like it for all those elements. I still like to listen to JJ Lin every once in a while. He was on the show Come Sing With Us this season and it had some great moments.

DAOKO – “Fireworks” OST

I saw Fireworks at Fantasia Festival. You can find the review HERE. I was definitely the minority in the reviews who are more positive. One of the things that I liked about Fireworks is the soundtrack. Here’s one of the songs that I was able to find and liked quite a bit.

Jon McLaughlin ft. Will Anderson – Dueling Piano (Kiss Me Slowly/I’ll Follow You)

I’m a big fan of the Dueling Piano series on Jon McLaughlin’s Youtube channel. While I have my varying degrees of preference, I remembered listening to Kiss Me Slowly when it first came out and just loving it so much. To see that song played here in this mash-up was really great. It worked so well together.

The Beat – Mike Williams

What’s a Music Obsessions without some EDM, right? Anyways, I love electronic music and Mike Williams has delivered some good stuff lately. This one is pretty great.

Nobody But Us – Noah Mac

Noah Mac was one of my faves the season that he was The Voice. I mean, I thought he should have won. He has such a vision for making music so I’m happy to see that he’s gotten even better with the music he makes. This one is pretty good.

That’s it for this Music Obsessions!
A bit of a crazy random last minute selections.
