I love Sam Smith’s album “In The Lonely Hour.” It’s been a long time since I’ve found a music EP that I can listen to from start to finish and not feel like I have to skip any tracks. After listening to this album I realized that this guy has quite a few hits on the radio. Which must be a lot because I barely listen to the radio and I hear him almost every time I do.
I decided to look him up on Spotify after deciding that I need to listen to the track “I’m Not The Only One” because I simply could not get it out of my head. I found the album and decided to just play the whole thing and I just fell in love. I listen to it at least once from start to finish at least twice every two weeks while running errands or just cleaning the apartment. His track “I’m Not The Only One” is my favorite song by him. It’s so catchy and easy to sing along to. I will hook you guys up and embed the song via YouTube here for your enjoyment.
I want to take this opportunity talk about Sam Smith and John Legend’s rendition of the track “Lay Me Down”. I think this song is absolutely beautiful and sad. They re-released this song for the benefit of Red Nose Day and all the proceeds went to the charity which helps children and young people who are living in poverty.
I was pretty blown away that this guy is only 23 years old. (He was born in 1992!) I think I will forever consider those who were born close to 2000 as young. He was born in London, England. With that being said yes he has that awesome British accent. Check out this interview with Sam Smith talking about his album.
I like how they briefly talk about vision boards which touches the concept of The Secret. If you’re not familiar with that… well, I will cover that in another blog post because it deserves it. It’s a book and a documentary, I highly recommend both so check it out when you can!
So anyway, what do you think of Sam Smith and his music?
