A Great Big World – what a confusing band name, but I have to admit that I love it quite a lot.
I wanna love and be the one who is loved
No, I won’t stop dreaming
‘Cause this isn’t over
It’s never over
– Lyric from “Won’t Stop Running” by A Great Big World
I’ve been listening to some songs of theirs for a while now, and they never fail to make me feel something. The lead singer’s voice can be both tender and direct in a way that makes me listen really carefully. It’s soft but still has an edge. And the music just… I love it. They have written songs with purpose. That’s something I like listening to.
The way his voice harmonises with Aguilera’s on “Say Something” gives me chills every time I hear it. “Already Home” makes me feel loved and hopeful and “Won’t Stop Running” gives me courage and optimism, and even a bit of stubbornness that nothing will ever make me stop running!
This isn’t usually what I write around here, but I wanted to share this. No regrets 🙂
