Royals + Applause

Sorry for being so M.I.A. this week. It was definitely not my intention. Recruitment has taken up pretty much all of my attention, so until that's over on Labor Day I'll probably be a little loopy and out of it. Who would have thought it could be so exhausting?! 

But just as a way to let you all know I'm alive and well, I figured I could let you know some of my favorite tunes of the moment - songs that are really getting me through the stress of the semester starting and recruitment at full force. I just heard "Royals" by Lorde for the first time a couple days ago, but it has very quickly become one of my favorite songs of the summer's end. It's a little different - very raw and not focused on all the glamour that so many music artists place on a throne (no pun intended). I can definitely appreciate all that it is. The music video isn't my favorite, but what can you do? The song's still awesome.

And Gaga... Oh, Gaga. I love her. I've loved her ever since "Just Dance" and "Poker Face" and every other song on that first album. She's on a level of her own. When I heard "Applause" on the radio a couple weeks ago I was ecstatic that she was finally releasing new music. And after watching her opening performance on the VMAs the other night I just can't get a grip. And the best part of all, her album, ARTPOP, is expected to drop on my birthday. Happy 22nd to me!
