I’ve always been fascinated with music. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always found it interesting that what sounds good to someone might not sound good to another person. Music that I can completely rock out to cleaning my apartment would make someone else scrunch up their nose in distaste. Or music that relaxes me so completely that I can finally fall asleep would annoy the hell out of another person.
There’s a few artists that I’ve been listening to on repeat. Lately, artists/bands I tend to listen to are smaller, YouTube creators. Mainstream music doesn’t sound good to me anymore. Maybe I’m just listening to the wrong radio stations.
1. Andie Case
I ran across Andie’s channel a few years ago and I’ve been obsessed with her music ever since. She posts new music videos every week and they are all absolutely fantastic.
Songs to check out:
There’s Nothing Holding Me Back/Your Love
Okay, so I’m really obsessed with her music. There’s so many more that I absolutely love (almost every single song she puts out) but these are my favorite.
2. Nathan Sharp (NateWantsToBattle)
This guy, though.
His music is exactly what I need to get through my day. Whether it’s covers or originals, his voice fucking rocks it.
I, like most people, originally started listening to Nathan for his Pokemon parodies. Watching his style as an artist change over the years has been absolutely amazing to see. I seriously want to see him sing live, ’cause his voice is just amazing.

Victorious *by far my favorite cover
Mangled *the acoustic version also kicks ass
All I See *This video is the best
Okay. I’m going to stop myself here before I just end up listing every single song he ever sang.
Go look him up.
3. Ninja Sex Party
I seriously love these two guys. Dan Avidan (Danny Sexbang) is a beautiful human being and Brian Wecht (Ninja Brian) is snarky and hilarious. They make quite the pair.
I saw NSP in concert back in August of 2016, as well as this past August and it was two of the most amazing experiences of my life. Their shows always have the most amazing energy.
I’m rather sentimental when it comes to NSP. Danny is also a co-host on the YouTube gaming channel GameGrumps and I watched a lot of them and listened to a lot of NSP during a period that I was going through some hard times. My husband was actually the one that insisted that I watch GameGrumps play The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. They helped. A lot.
Anyways, less sappy and more fangirl…
Everybody Wants To Rule The World
Their songs are kind of silly and most of the time extremely dirty, but they can pretty easily put a smile on your face after a rough day.
Ugh. Love them.
*most of their songs are on spotify.
Other than these three artists/bands, there’s not much more I actually listen to. I’m pretty happy with what I have here.
Any bands/songs I should check out?
Do you listen to any of the songs listed? What’s your favorite, if you do?
