Stuck In My Head is a new weekly meme that spotlights the songs you just can't seem to get out of your head.
Howdy! So a couple of days ago I was procrastinating my life away (as you do) and scrolling through my twitter timeline and I came across a tweet I couldn't really make sense of... it was a lyric of course and as an extremely curious
- nosy - person I typed 'Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah' into Google and discovered the song Tennis Court by Lorde. I kid you not, her voice is addictive to the point of crazy and although I adored Tennis Court, after a little more clicking away at Youtube suggestions I found Royals by Lorde and this song... this song is so incredibly awesome.
Ella Yelich-O'Connor, or Lorde, is a 16 (!!!!) year old singer-songwriter from New Zealand who recently released her first EP, The Love Club EP, in March 2013. Royals, if I put it simply, is about being broke. I didn't think a song about having no money could be so beautiful sounding.
Yes, it's a little different but if you're a fan of Lana Del Rey or have a thing for random but weirdly deep lyrics set to a catchy tune, I'm pretty sure you'll like Lorde. Have a try...

How about you? What has been stuck in your head? I have actually also really enjoyed listening to Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball recently. I know the video has been very controversial for our Hannah-Montana-turned-twerking-pop-star's lack of clothing however I still really like the song (especially the acoustic version), it's emotional and haunting. The video may not be everybody's cup of tea but I personally don't really have a problem with it, there are plenty of music videos with scantily dressed or naked pop stars. Have you heard Wrecking Ball? What do you think of it? The song and the video?
