On Repeat: 3 Songs I Can’t Stop Listening To

Posted by Shamir Lee on 10/23 at 12:03 PM

I love it when I discover new songs. There are some songs that get played out in a day, but then there are others that never get old, and I think I found three new ones that fit into that category. I’ve had them on repeat daily, and they’ve been stuck in my head day and night. Usually, I want a song to get out of my head. In this case, I’m happy they’re stuck, and wouldn’t mind if they stayed forever.

MDNGHT - “Into the Night” (2013)

MDNGHT is a fairly new UK-based group. I’d never heard of them until about a few days ago when I happened to stumble upon this video. The rest, as they say, is history. I can’t imagine life without hearing this magical mixture of heavenly vocals and enchanting house beats. The video is nonsensical, but who cares? This. Is. Amazing. Listen to it for yourself below, for words can’t describe the sublimity of this masterpiece. Also check out “I Will Lead You On,” you won’t be disappointed.

Katy B - “5 AM” (2013)

I wasn’t aware Katy B had released a new single. Now I am, and life is beautiful. Her smooth voice and jungle instrumentals are present on this track, as with most of her music and, somehow, it never gets repetitive. I believe she deserves more recognition. I’m waiting for her to become a worldwide sensation, but maybe it’s better the way it is now. The video is posted below, with shiny visuals and a dark theme, just in time for Halloween.


Sheena Easton - “The Lover in Me” (1988)

The 80s will always be my favorite era for music. I always thought I would grow out of my 80s phase. That was nine years ago, and I’m still as obsessed with it as before, maybe even more now. I always seem to find a song I like from that period that I’ve never heard before. “The Lover in Me” is my 80s song of the week. The New Jack Swing sound is apparent on this track, and Easton’s flawless vocals make the song even more enjoyable. The only thing I can complain about is the video. But the song more than makes up for it. Watch it below.
