✖ like you were in a movie | 7 songs to listen to this week

Before getting into my weekly song recommendations, I want to thank every single one of you who have been asking where have I been lately, why I've missed one or two of these recommendation Mondays and why it's been so quiet around in my every social media platform I'm using.

The thing is, I'm still very ill and I'm having a hard time finding the energy for the things that I'd love to do. But here I am now, ready to kick off a new week with my fresh cup of coffee & let's get into the song recommendations!

Do you ever hear a song and feel like it could be from a movie? Or a song that gives you the feeling, that you are in a movie in that very moment? I've got seven of those for you. It's a funny feeling, isn't it? And yet very uplifting, in its own kind of way.

It's alright, it's okay. It's alright, it's okay. You're not a demon, there's a reason you're behaving that way. It's alright, it's okay. It's alright, it's okay. And I believe, yes I believe that you will see a better day.
✖ "It's Alright" by Mother Mother
This song gives some hope, in a very lovely way. It's also one of my favourite songs currently and it does make me feel like I'm in a movie of some kind when I'm on my way home from work and sat on a train. This is also such a travel song, don't you think!
Laugh about how every good song that we sing along, they all use the same words. So we'll make up one, with beautiful woman, and heartbreak, and sex and that love, love, love.
✖ "We Should Be Friends" by Josh Ramsay
This one is the ultimate bus ride song. You know those scenes in a movie, or in a series where the main character is sitting on a bus, headphones on their head, looking outside the window and listening to some sort of indie pop shit. This is exactly what it is and why I love it so flipping much. Also, even better if the day is sunny!
I used to think that Romeo was full of shit and the Notebook was just my favourite chick flick. But now I get why Sarah was so hard to forget, it's this feeling that I'm feeling more than it.
 "Pumpkin" by the Regrettes
I discovered the Regrettes when they were warming up 21pilots in Helsinki back in February. The thing is, when I'm at gigs I tend to follow bands I'm not familiar with on Spotify and I didn't remember this up until the last week and it's the best thing that I discovered, as their new track "Pumpkin" was a perfect fit for this "feeling like you were in a movie" list I had on my mind.
You know that it would be untrue, you know that I would be a liar. If I was to say to you, girl, we couldn't get much higher.
✖ "Light My Fire" by The Doors
What would be a song recommendation list without any good old 70's music in it? Looks like I'm following a pattern here. But well, oldies are goodies, eh? I can see this in a scene filmed in a cafe, a book shop and then when the character is walking down the street. Or perhaps, it's because last time I listened to this, I picked up my Starbucks cuppa, visited in a book shop and then wandered around the Helsinki streets.
So let me go now, 'cause time has made me strong. I'm starting to move on, I'm gonna say this now, your chance has come and gone. And you know, it's just too little too late.
✖ "Too Little, Too Late" by JoJo
It's all over the place, I know haha! But I was recently listening to a playlist I created for my friend, or I actually burned a CD for her 15th birthday back in 2009 and this song gave me major "if I was in a movie vibes". It was like a trip down to a memory lane, and I saw some memories flashing in front of my eyes. If you want to have a sneak peek to my 2009, check out the list on Spotify over here.
By now we thought that there would be Jetpacks and flying cars, robots to do the cleaning for us and help with the shopping. We'd all be famous for a bit, that's what Andy Warhol said. Thought we'd all get our coloured hand. Well, the truth would rock him.
✖ "15 Minutes" by Tim Minchin
This is actually quite funny, even though it has a very accurate message in it when you pay your attention to the lyrics. Though I can see this as a perfect hungover scene song, and even the lyrics say everyone will have their 15 minutes of shame.
Should I take the pill to numb the pain? Change the chemicals inside my brain. I worry I won't be the same, but I guess that that's the point.
✖ "Medicate" by Gabbie Hanna
This is for the tragic moments, and apparently, I'm ending this list of recommendations in a tragic way.

Which songs make you feel like you were in a movie? Share with me in the comments or tweet me about them, I'd love to know!


  1. You've got some great song recommendations here. As tragic as it is, I can't help but love Medicate and turn it up whenever it comes on

    1. It's such an amazing song, isn't it! The lyrics are just!

  2. Your recommendations are great but I am nervous about the "like you were in a movie" bit. I'm not sure if you're being metaphorical but I shy away from emulating the artificial life medium of movies/hollywood/"stars"/"celebrities". Why can't we just fantasise like people did once? Lots of people seem to aspire to this artificial world like chasing a mirage in the desert. Kids want to be "movie stars" not merely actors or they want to win American Idol rather than sing in an opera. I'm sticking with the songs as accompaniment to the life I'm living right now.

    1. You can definitely do whatever feels the best for you! However, I was being metaphorical. It's not to fantasise about being a celebrity of some sort, it was merely a feeling you get when you are listening to a song. The feeling that song gives to you, that _in that very moment_ (emphasis on those words) you feel like you could be in a movie. That _feeling_, not necessarily a suggestion for kids to start dreaming about Hollywood.

      Things aren't that serious around here, take it easy. You asked why can't we just fantasise, like people did once? This is exactly what it is.

  3. I LOVE Too Little Too Late by Jojo. That song is meant for a movie, I swear.

    S .x

    1. I'm pretty sure it has been in a movie of some sort!?
