High Way to Heaven, Part 3 – Chilling songs to tease and relax

We just could not stop it! After the first and the second part of "High Way to Heaven", we had to make a trilogy. Would not even be responsible if you ended up missing music and you had to fall back on Justin Bieber. Here's the last one (and for now) and maybe the last part of Weedo's music rankings, of course, as before, with no rankings:

Our best songs to smoke and relax:

The Chainsmokers – Sick Boy

The American DJ duo Chainsmokers is perhaps one of the best performers that the mainstream of EDM has to offer. Made famous by the song "#Selfie", from 2014 they have become, in five years, the highest paid DJ in the world, according to the economic magazine Forbes. True, they have not written the history of music yet, but they could become the Daft Punk of their generation. The song "Sick Boy" convinces as a complete set as well as by the beat, the melody and the voice in detail.

Les Libertines – Can not stand me now

Libertine leader Pete Doherty is probably much better known for his addiction to drugs and the scandals associated with it than for his music. However, his exceptional talent is clearly heard on the few albums of the group. Carl Barât, friend and member of Doherty's group, also contributed greatly to this project until the dissolution of Libertines in 2004. Internal conflicts, often reinforced by Doherty's crack and heroin addiction, sealed the destiny of the punk band, which since then has only occasionally been designated by individuals. Concerts gathered. However, success continues. "Can not Support Me Now", from the self-titled album "The Libertines", is one of their best-known, most successful and most recent songs, and can be seen as a snapshot of the fragmented friendship of Doherty and Barat.

Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc.

The London group Gorillaz is not strictly speaking. Composed of four animated and anthropomorphous monkeys, it has existed virtually only since its invention in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. For recordings and concerts, a loose band of musicians is used, including Blur, The Clash, George Benson and Snoop Dogg. As a result, the Gorillaz music also oscillates between indie rock, trip hop and electronica. Unlike the well-known song "Clint Eastwood", which has nothing to do with his patron saint, by the way, "Feel Good Inc." again what she says on the outside.

Bob Marley – Natural Mystic

"Natural Mystic" is the first title of the album "Exodus" by Bob Marley, published in 1977 and one of his most important works. After being shot in Jamaica in 1976, just two days before the "Smile Jamaica" peace show, Marley appeared. When asked why, he said, "People who want to make this world worse do not take a day off either, so why me?" Shortly after the concert, Marley went into exile for reasons of London, also to protect her family from violence in Jamaica, the London album "Exodus" deals with sex, love, politics and life in exile, and "Natural Mystic" is be the best song of the greatest reggae legend in the world.

Deichkind – Unfortunately Geil

"The hands of little children are sewing beautiful shoes, my new sneakers are unfortunately great."

With quotes like this, Deichkind parodied the double standard of consumer behavior. Of course, they do not go out. Irony is the hallmark of Deichkind, who recently released a new album after years. It was not something new that would have been absolutely necessary: ​​the classics of this electro-punk band from Hamburg, such as "Air Train", "Think Big" and "Bück Dich Hoch", you do not have. do not hear as fast, because they are … Unfortunately, cool.

Arctic Monkeys – Why do you call me only when you are high?

The Arctic Monkeys, a garage rock band with post-punk influences, was founded in 2002 in Sheffield, England. As often, the founding story is unusual: singer Alex Turner and guitarist James Cook, neighbors and still students, got guitars for Christmas, and then started to train together. In a very short time, 15- and 16-year-olds learned to play, and soon after, founded Arctic Monkeys with classmates. Success did not wait: three years after its creation, the Arctic Monkeys were on the road to world renown. For example, Alex Turner was named "the coolest man in the world" by the English music magazine NME in 2005. At age 19, he defeated Liam Gallagher and Kanye West. Eight years later, collaborations with Josh Homme and other rock legends followed.

The song "Why do you call me only when you're up?", Influenced by influences from R & B and blues rock, as well as by Turners Yorkshire, is one of the best-known songs of the group. By the way, as in many songs written by Alex Turner, the lyrics are written by Alexa Chung, author and fashion designer and former girlfriend of Turners.

Marilyn Manson – Sweet Dreams

This world famous song, which almost everyone can sing blindly, originates from the British new wave duo "Eurythmics". However, it is at the same time one of the few cases where a cover version is at least as familiar as the original. Although covered and copied several times, the best known version is that of Brian Hugh Warner, also known as Marilyn Manson and leader of the group of the same name. The eccentric rocker with shaved eyebrows, who almost never leaves home without makeup, is already polarized in the past. For example, in the 1990s, he was ordained priest of "The Church of Satan", an atheistic pseudo-religion, to serve as a symbol of skepticism and protest against churches. In addition, Manson, who is considered a pacifist, his group and naming himself after Marilyn Monroe and the mass murderer Charles Manson, was created with music insensibly responsible for the tidal waves and has already given concerts despite his broken legs. Whether you hate it, love it or just think it's strange, it's clear: Marilyn Manson is a fool.

Lil Peep – The sunlight on your skin

Like many named musicians, Lil Peep, whose real name was Gustav Elijah Åhr, was suffering from serious drug problems. The US-Swedish freelance artist died in 2017 from an accidental overdose of sedatives, just two weeks after his 21st birthday. The rapper's best known works, whose style falls somewhere between trap, hip hop, emo and punk, have been published posthumously, in part with additional features of XXXTentacion and Fall Out Boy. Thus, Lil Peep is a good example of great artists who only receive deserved attention by their death. Unlike most of Lil Peep's pieces, "Sunlight on Your Skin" was not designed as a demo or a mere experiment, but rather intended for release. The melancholic emo-pop voice and electronic melody are accompanied by hip-hop rhythms. Not something for everyone, but definitely worth trying.

David Bowie – Hero

The best thing happens at the end: virtually no solo artist is considered more important than David Bowie in the history of pop music. The singer, multi-instrumentalist and actor, who made himself known through songs like "Let's Dance", "Rebel Rebel" and "Space Oddity", co-wrote pop music and 20th century rock with its contemporaries, such as the Doors and the Beatles. In the 19th century, he was so durable that he became a legend well before his death. The song "Heroes" of the genius of music, died of cancer in 2016, is a masterpiece in every sense of the word, looks like a frenzy and is also the most listened song of Bowie on Spotify.
