Playlist of the Week – Best of Maroon 5

Friday, February 28th, 2020

So here’s the thing about Maroon 5. Literally no one you know would ever list them as their favourite band. No one. Doesn’t matter what kind of music they like to listen to. Try it, test it, ask away. However, every single soul who’s listened to English music would not only know who they are, but also be a able to sing several of their songs. The thing about Maroon 5 is that while no one really admits to outright liking them, every single person loves their songs. We’re still trying to figure out why this weird love-hate relationship exists in the universe (seriously, why though).

So, obviously, it’s impossible to select just 5 songs of theirs that peaked in popularity, because that is literally their whole existence, isn’t it? Look at any album, and there are more chartbusters than not. But anyways, we tried. And we get it, there’s too many good songs to put here, so we probably missed a few of your favourites too. Forgive us.

 

1. Girls Like You (ft. Cardi B)

If the song wasn’t catchy enough, the phenomenal level of cameos kinda blew this video up. Who didn’t it have? The only one missing is Beyonce.

Girls Like You

 

2. Memories

A surprising one to come out of their latest album, this one was an unexpected tear-jerker. While we’re used to professions of love on popping beats, and loud frustrations, the absolute sentimental writing on this track resonated with absolutely everyone. We’ve all lost someone along the way that we sometimes sit back and miss in our happiest moments.

3. Moves Like Jagger (ft. Christina Aguilera)

You know it. You danced to it. In fact, you wiggled and jiggled to it. There’s no use denying it. We know.

4. Sugar

Yup, it’s true. They genuinely did crash and perform at all those weddings. Those are real weddings, where the grooms and brides had no clue they were gonna be there. That’s how amazing these guys are.

5. She Will Be Loved

Because what’s a Maroon 5 list without a little throwback. A decade old, and this song (the album in fact) is still so beautiful.

Happy Listening!

Top Reasons to Travel

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.

Whether you have the desperate urge to or not, you cannot discount the benefits that travel has on our well-being. Heart, body and soul, all benefit, while also giving you a break that (whether you admit or not) you really need. But if you’re still not convinced, or if you need help convincing someone else on why you definitely must be travelling, here’s a list of reasons why travelling should be on your schedule on a regular basis

 

1. Become more confident

Travelling will definitely throw you out of your comfort zone. And this is definitely a great thing. Putting you in places you’ve never been, situations you’ve probably never experienced, with people you’ve never met, you are bound to have an experience to remember for a long time. And all of this has the added benefit of making you more confident. You see, when you challenge yourself and push yourself to try new things, you automatically show yourself that you can do it, and then, if you do this regularly enough, it becomes part of who you are.

2. Become more adaptable

With travel, you are bound to sometimes land up in situations that you were not prepared for, no matter how perfectly you plan things. You learn to adjust, accommodate, and test your own limits while travelling. And this has real time applications and benefits in your regular life, regardless of what job you have, what your relationship status is, or even what kind of life you lead.

3. Take a break

Stress is now just a normal part of all our lives. But if you don’t give yourself a break every now and then, then finding that your energy is fizzling out is quite common. Taking a small break from the regular routine is a must, if for nothing else than to give your body and soul a chance to recharge. You’ll go back to your regular routine with a more positive outlook, and a bounce in your step.

4. Broaden your horizons

Meeting people from outside of your regular circle, interacting with people from different backgrounds, different cultures, even those who speak different languages, is a great way to broaden your mind, and also is a different, and really real-world, form of education. It also helps you combat your own notions (and often, misconceptions) about those very people and cultures.

5. Create memories

It has to be said, that the longer you live your life in a particular way, the less likely you become to experience new things, and hence, the fewer memories you retain of those times, since, quite sincerely, all days blend into one another due to similarity. Travelling jars you out of this funk, and with new experiences come new memories, and more stories to tell family and friends.

Apart from all of these reasons, there are also great benefits for your health and immunity, developing better communication skills, and making new friends. But whatever the reasons you choose, traveling is a definite must. And who says you need to splurge on a foreign tour every single time? Sometimes you just need to pack a backpack, grab a bus ticket to a random place, and be off. Sometimes you just need to go out and discover your own city. It all counts.
