Those are my exact thoughts as I am currently listening and watching at the music video for one of my most played song ever: Beauty And The Beast (the original version anyway).
In case you didn’t know, Beauty And The Beast is competing for the spot of my favorite Disney movie with Lilo And Stitch. But the soundtrack of BATB wins HANDS. DOWN. (plus I’m kinda attached to this movie, it’s as old as I am, it came out in 1991 haha #BestYearEver)

Ok, how could I not start this post with that more than mythical lyric ?
A long time ago (okay it was 2011, but it feels like forever), A Day To Remember came to the town where I was studying and I even had a ticket BUT a storm was announced and I wasn’t sure I’d have a train back to my folk’s house on the next day (and get that I was barely 20 and absolutely wanted to go back to my parent’s on the week ends) SO, I did the worst thing I could: I didn’t go to the concert. And to this day, I’ve regretted it for every single second.
I got to know ADTR through their album Homesick (which is my favorite album by them, but that’s another topic) and I have been a fan since. I’d never gotten the chance to see them yet, but that all changed when the BAD VIBES WORLD TOUR came through Paris ! Continue reading A DAY TO REMEMBER BAD VIBES WORLD TOUR (Paris)
I’ve always been one to love finding new bands, new things in music, or simply that one tune that’ll send me somewhere else for the little while of it (aka the 3 minutes of the song most of the time).
And I’m glad I did find another new band to obsess over !
First time I discovered that band (thanks Spotify!), I remember that I was astonished by their sound.
It’s how I feel anyway. You Me At Six is possibly to me, one of the greatest bands ever. It’s one of the first bands that influenced me as an artist, one of the only people in the world who gets me. All sides of me. The romantic one, the angry one, the disgusted-by-how-people-are-sometimes side. All the sides of my personality, and that’s why, they’ve easily become one of the best bands in my life. (And it’s also one of the reasons why I’ve actually got a bit of You Me At Six inked in me as a tattoo, of their lyrics).
In 2014, You Me At Six put out their album Cavalier Youth and achieved the number one spot of the charts, well deserved.
But this album is now in the past, and they’ve moved on. And they let us know with a really fresh and new record coming as NIGHT PEOPLE.
I first discovered As It Is when I found out they were signed to Fearless Records. Honestly: COULDN’T HAVE THOUGHT OF A BETTER IDEA.
Never Happy, Ever After came out in 2015, and it easily became one of my most played record that year. We’d always been hearing different and various things in the music scene, but there was just something with them… something fresh, something new !
And I was right !
(Just for the sake of it, here’s a look into the first single off Never Happy, Ever After and the one that won over my heart)
After a successful first album, and a deluxe edition out a year later, we were all expecting new music from the band, looking forward to that yet again new fresh sound !
And they came, and gave us just what we wanted !
There are few albums that I can listen, from beginning to end, without skipping at least one song, and friends, THEY MADE IT HAPPEN.
Earlier this year, As It Is granted us the gift of OKAY.
On the 17th of February 2017, All Time Low released Dirty Laundry. After nearly two years since Future Hearts came out (celebration in April people), All Time Low gave us new music !
The band had been quite cryptic regarding their whereabouts for the past few months (and god knows we love to follow alex’s and jack’s adventures on snapchat and we were all scooping for new hints or new music or a slip-up) but finally, after teasing us for a whole week, THEY DELIVERED !
