There’s still a couple of months until Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is released, but the trailer that was released yesterday was enough to throw my emotions into overdrive and give me a whole new batch of feels that I really did not sign on for.
It’s a hard life being a Fangirl, and releases like this really doesn’t help! The trailer includes home videos and animated scenes to show the story of one of the greatest stars that ever lived (just my opinion, don’t hate) and it actually looks amazing!
It’s no secret that I love music more than the average 20 year old Londoner. Where everyone has their hobbies on what they spent their hard earned money from (better known as student loans) mine pretty much revolves around music. Reading about it, listening to it, and going to see it.
I was lucky enough to go and see Eminem at his second Wembley gig. Regardless of what everyone has said about it being a flop and the sound was awful or whatever – I had a great time! The atmosphere more than made up for the crappy sound quality, which is one of the main reasons I love going to gigs so much.
Another “main reason” gigs are basically heaven for me is it allows me to see the person that wrote the lyrics I love so very much, and suddenly that person isn’t just a poster on a wall or the sound in my headphones – they are there. They are alive. They are standing in front of me and talking to me!

Cold and rainy weather means it’s a good time to snuggle on the sofa, with a fluffy blanket, a cup of tea, and the Gilmore Girls box set. For those not lucky enough to own the DVD’s to one of the greatest shows ever, it’s also the perfect weather to jam out to slow, acoustic songs, while you imagine your life in an alternate universe.
Acoustic songs are absolutely beautiful, because they manage to capture emotions within the songs and lyrics that may not have been as obvious in electric versions (assuming we’re talking about an acoustic cover.) Original acoustic songs, when done right, have the capability to make me feel a wide range of emotions, reduce me to tears, and force me to curl into a ball, cursing all my feels.
Here is a list (in no particular order) of some of the most perfect acoustic songs ever recorded. In my very honest, and very humble opinion…
