Playlist of the Week – Best of Billie Eilish

To say that this girl has been dominating the charts would definitely be a bit of an understatement. Billie seems like she came out of nowhere and suddenly, one blink later, she was everywhere. 2019 was definitely the year she made her mark, with her album Where Do We Go When We Fall Asleep blowing everyone’s minds. And with 2020 having just started, she’s certainly started it off with a bang! Just a few days ago it was announced that she, alongwith her producer and co-songwriter brother Finneas, will be doing the title track for the next James Bond movie. She’s officially the youngest person ever to sing a Bond theme, at just 18.

So obviously, we couldn’t think of a better time to come out with our list of her favortite songs.

 

1. bad guy

To think that she and Finneas were totally unsure of this song, since it didn’t have a “hook” to it. And look at it now, everyone is totally hooked to it. So much so, that her re-release with Justin Bieber might just have broken the internet that day.

2. Lovely (ft. Khalid)

This song is lyrical, whimsical, and totally pulls you in. And Khalid’s understated vocals mix so effortlessly with Billie’s. Fun fact, this song is part of the official OST for 13 Reasons Why’s second season.

3. Bury A Friend

How do you describe a song that’s depressing, triggering, sad, horrific, and yet kind of soothes away all those aches. The lyrics are dark, the video darker still, and still, it lingers like a monster under your bed.

4. Bellyache

“Where’s my mind? Maybe it’s in the gutter. Where I left my lover. What an expensive fate.”

5. You Should See Me In A Crown

She’s certainly wearing a crown, and running this nothing town.

Happy Listening!
