#PhillipRadio: Single Edition

So, if you’re like me, you’re single while everyone you know is in a loving relationship.  Which is absolutely lovely (#sarcasm).  I decided to play off this awkward situation and create a new playlist where we would celebrate our independence (we can do whatever we want!), we can reminisce with songs of why being in a  relationship isn’t all bliss like my friends would like to make me believe, and listen to songs that would just take us away from feeling so lonely (which we aren’t feeling…ahem).  Happy listening!

P.S. I don’t know if you noticed this, but I chose only songs that were released as singles…get it?

How I Spent My Morning

I woke up this morning two hours earlier than planned.  So as I was laying in bed, I was thinking about the song “Pompeii” by Bastille (featured as a #PhillipsSongOfTheDay, read here) and how that’s a totally epic song.  Then I thought, “how would I perform that acoustic?”

I’m performing in my first showcase at my school tomorrow; I’ll be playing three original songs (guitar and vocals), but I did have a moment when I thought I’d start off my set playing a cover song.  It was hard to choose which song to cover, but it was between “Let it Go” from Frozen, “Cooler Than Me” by Mike Posner, and “Team” by Lorde.  I wasn’t even considering “Pompeii” because I had no idea how an acoustic version would go.  Then I found this video:

From this video, I found these clips of Bastille covering “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus and “No Scrubs” by TLC.  I was stunned how they changed up these songs; they totally owned the songs and I think did a great job:
