Music / Song of the Day

Song of the day: “Montreal” – The Weeknd

FaceTweet it!

Well, if today isn’t a legitimate example of stumbling upon a song, I don’t know what is.  I’ll be honest.  I was planning on being lazy about finding today’s song of the day. I signed in to Spotify and hoped that the power of randomly clicking things under “What’s New” would lead me to a wonderful piece of music.  My dreams were squelched when Spotify wouldn’t connect to the internet.  Awesome, Spotify.  I have a song of the day to deliver and you are seriously hindering that.

Then it hit me.  Rolling Stone has a whole slew of reviews, and readers even have a chance to listen to a song from the album.  Since I cheated and used an artist I had heard of before for yesterday’s post, I sampled out quite a few until I ran across a song that actually made me stop what I was doing so I could fully listen.  That song was Montreal by The Weeknd (pronounced weakened, I didn’t make a typo).  The choral sounding voices in the beginning took me by surprise and left me intrigued.  As soon as Abel Tesfaye’s (The Weeknd’s) Michael Jackson-esque voice started singing in French, I was hooked.  (Which, if you know me at all, shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as I’m a choir loving, Michael Jackson obsessed individual.)

In fact, during my current musical stalk of The Weeknd, I couldn’t find a single song I didn’t like.  Thank you, Spotify, for failing on me today.  I wouldn’t have found The Weeknd without your mistake.
