No guys, I did not get a castle on the hill neither did I visit one or even saw one in my dream. Nuh, still that boring girl obsessed with sunsets n trees n deep shit. Oh wait, did I tell you guys I have a new addiction? N that it involves chapatti n soda in the early am? I need rehab already but that’s story for another day.
Ed freaking Sheeran!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry about those many exclamations but who has heard this jam yet? Dude, am abusing the replay button more than a crack head.
I have been in love with Ed since his first jam! His album ‘ Thinking out Loud’ is one of those albums yaani I sing word for word. It came at a point I was so in love with a certain con hahaha. Photograph, Afire Love, Nina, among my fav. You know those nights you actually find IG boring n you can’t even deal with social rant-ers on FB n your con of love is with you n y’all are feeling so mushy n in lust of each other you put some music to set the mood. You know yeah? Well, those were my Ed nights.
I’m the kind that if I love a jam, am on google getting lyrics digging for some wordplay, poetic punchlines n really get in the zone analysing the beats, the vocals n if the jam is so so good, we get to IG stalk the artist, go to Wikipedia google origin, family life, n nope, I don’t sound like a psycho stalker.
I love Castle on the Hill. It’s a story so poetic. Ed goes on n on how he misses his home n his childhood. Where he found his heart n broke it, where he rolled on the country side grass running away from his brothers. Where he smoked hand rolled ciggies (we all know one person or many who do this no?) He says how they would buy cheap spirits n get drunk all night n how they’ve not thrown up in a while hahahaha. [Hi my usual suspects: Amosou kanyo 😂😂. ]
He is driving home spirits high jammin in the car admiring the view wanting a re-run of how it all felt real. I get a high at this point. Man. Who doesn’t love the feeling of approaching home? Can I brag that as you approach my village you’re welcomed by the breathtaking views of hills (odiado hills) n yellow sunflowers by the road. Yeah guys, I knoooow 😜😍😝, I know am blessed.
All these just to watch a sunset over the castle on the hill. He had me at the sunset! Took me back to long strolls in the evening back home just soak in the sunset n feel the clean village air fill up my lungs. The beat is such a feel good upbeat you’ll have your spirits super elevated!!
Let my yapping not ruin for you this song. Head over to YouTube now now n feed your soul.
PS can’t wait for his album▶ DIVINE in march!!!! Am already in love with the title.
Another PS: these pics are my attempt at playing with black n white shades which I have noticed I’ve started liking. I don’t know what that means about my love for color n bright things. Guess we’ll have to wait n find out.
Thank you for passing by. You make me feel normal like am not talking to myself here 😃. See how important you are in my thriving? Thank you.
Have a beautiful weekend lovers. Catch some music n share with me your current high!!
Waaah before I forget : team Muziki by Darassa are you theeeere? My current fav local jam.
Aaaaand am not really feeling Diamond -Neyo yet. Maybe it will grow on me but I feel the song writing was weak considering we know how good these two are.
OK seriously now, bye lovers! I gotta go listen to some spoken word.
Have a beautiful weekend. Make beautiful memories. Be kind.
Love, Light & Sunsets!!!
