Music Monday: Songs I Didn't Think I'd Like, Pt. 3


Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately!  If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.

Rules:

Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post's url.

This week I'm sharing two songs that I didn't expect to like for various reason.  The first is John Mayer's newest single, "Love on the Weekend," from his upcoming album.  I wouldn't say I like him, or at least his more recent stuff, but I really surprised myself here.  Admittedly it does remind me of his older stuff which I prefer.  Next is Niall Horan's first solo song, "This Town".  In case you've been living under a rock for the last few years, Horan is a part of One Direction.  That there is one reason I didn't expect to care for it.  However, the radio DJ didn't announce the song before I heard it for the first time and I immediately found myself humming along.  Of course, afterward when I learned who it was I was mildly disappointed with myself... but I have to admit, it's still a pretty decent song.

  1. I haven't listened to a John Mayer song since his Room for Squares album. I think I kind of forgot he existed. heh.
    Are all the guys from One Direction going Solo now?

    1. Yeah, I kind of did too!

      At least two are, I guess.

  2. When I first saw the names of these songs, honestly, I didn't think I would like them either. But, actually, they're pretty good. Thanks for sharing! :-)

  3. I'm surprised I liked Niall Horan's song because I mostly listen to rock and dubstep!

  4. I was disappointed with myself when I loved This Town too! I don't want One Direction to break up even more because they make such great music together but I can't deny that Niall has a good ear for lyrics and melody!
