Love At First Sound

If you couldn't tell by the title of my blog, I love Mumford and Sons. For thse of you who don't know Mumford and Sons is set to release their new album on May 4 (ten days before my birthday!) and one of the songs was released already. It's called Believe and their album is Wilder Mind.

The song has a completely different sound than all of their past music. It has less banjo and strings and more electric, something people weren't expect. There has been some uproar with the new song. I had some thought of my own and just wanted to share some first thoughts.

Let me just set the picture for you. I'm sitting in the library on a Wednesday night studying Microbiology. Exhaustion has taken over me and I'm all by my lonesome self at this table. The library is filled with people. Believe comes on iTunes radio and I hear Marcus's voice (yep we're on first name bases). I can't exactly freak out so these are the thoughts that run through my head.

Is that Marcus?! It sounds just like him but like not anything like Mumford and Sons. 
Well this is different...
Where's the banjo? I miss the banjo! That was their thing! 
I have to tell someone about this! *Looks around library*
Well there's no one here to tell... 
I'll just tweet about it. 
Wait that's not enough! I'll just text my roommate. 
Let me just simmer down and listen to the lyrics. 
These are pretty lyrics. No surprise here. 
*Song ends*
Marcus and boys I am proud of you. 
Now lets listen again! 

So as you can see I freaked out a little. Actually more like a lot and if I wasn't in the library I'm pretty sure I would have been screaming. I'm pretty dramatic. After listening to the song I went and looked at what other people were saying. A lot of people were upset it sounded different and they were saying they couldn't tell. All I have to say is if you know them than you can surely tell it's Marcus signing.

If you haven't listened to the new song go listen to it right now! I've had it on repeat for a week.

February Review

February is such a short month! For some reason I thought that we still had a few more days of the month left until I looked on the calendar. 2015 is just flying by and before I know it I'm going to be done my sophomore year of college. There really weren't a lot of events in February. It was so much more boring than January that's for sure! I hope March is more exciting and really I think it will be. 


  • Found out who my Little is
  • Spent some time with my friend and her mom 
  • Had an amazing Valentine's Day with my best friends
  • Had dinner with my sorority family
  • Spent fell days and nights crafting 
  • Failed my first Mirco test
  • Got in a huge fight with my best friend 
  • Stressed about some health problems for half the month 

Wonderland by Taylor Swift//\\Trampoline by Kalin & Myles//\\ Wrapped Up by Olly Murs//\\One Last Time by Ariana Grande//\\Take U There by Jack U//\\ Truffle Butter by Nicki Minaji//\\Polaroid by Imagine Dragons//\\ The Fall by Imagine Dragons//\\ Shots by Imagine Dragons//\\Up by Olly Murs//\\Electric Love by Borns//\\Honey, I'm Good by Andy Grammar//\\ Uma Thruman by Fall Out Boy

I had a thing for Imagine Dragons this month it seems. I didn't even put all the songs I've been listening to this month on the list because those were just my favorites. The two main iTune Radios I was listening to this month were the Top 50 Pop and Top 50 Alternative with most of the time being on the alternative radio.
