It’s been over a month since my last favourites now? It feels like yesterday, because the shortest month of the year passed by so quickly… I am more frightened and nervous, because big things are even closer now, but also the ones that I’ve been waiting for will come sooner than later. And I’ve been waiting for years. So, what rocked my world in February? Check out the top 3 things that I’ve been obsessed with last month.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING MORRISSEY, 2003
If I was given the opportunity to choose which one from the rich & famous family I want to be, I’d always choose Morrissey. Let’s forget Prince or Bowie for now, my loves and favourite boys in music; but I’d just be Morrissey, as simple as that. The mysteriousness of his persona, his conscious will to suffer loneliness and sometimes sadness scares me, but impress me. Besides, who wouldn’t like to be as talented as he is… Morrissey, named the most talented lyricist in the movie, became a completely different person for me after watching that documentary. I love him. He’s everything. It gave me so much positive energy, and reminded me of the timeless songs like “The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get” - classic Morrissey’s song, which now accompanies every day of my life.
Ciechowski Klasycznie is a project created by two young, talented Polish students, Hanna Raniszewska and Dobrawa Czocher, who found their destiny and passion in the work of one of the most gifted Polish musicians, Grzegorz Ciechowski. Those moving, classical arrangements of his songs entered my life by accident, but it will for sure stay with me forever, since they YouTube channel is my musical temple now. It’s beautiful, unique, magnificent, it helps me get into my thoughts on a rainy day, and I can just envy their sensitivity to music… We need emotions in our life and they give us so many of them through this project.
It was my absolute commercial favourite in February. Beyoncé’s newest album represents music business at its finest and at the same time it guarantees success, enormous income, madness all around the world… Lots and lots has been said about this release already, but it’s still very welcome and worth mentioning this one more time. There is no weak number on that CD, and songs like “Jealous”, “XO” or “Rocket” are now set in my mind forever. No other female artist could do that.
