My Brain is Mostly Song Lyrics

Christina Perri

Christina Perri’s second album Head or Heart was released a couple of days ago and I am in love. It has been playing non-stop on my ipod.

I have been a big fan of Christina Perri ever since I heard her song Jar of Hearts on season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance. The music video is still one of my favourites.

Christina Perri’s debut album Lovestrong (released in 2011) did not disappoint. It’s filled with beautiful lyrics, heart wrenching melodies, and so much feelings all over. For me, in addition to Jar of Hearts, the best songs are definitely Distance (with Jason Mraz) and Arms.

Another favourite is A Thousand Years, both the original version that was released on the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and the duet version with Steve Kazee from the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Head or Heart is an excellent sequel. It builds on Lovestrong, showcasing what Christina Perri does best: slightly melancholy songs (but also some more optimistic ones) with her amazing voice, lots of piano, and strong choruses. My favourite songs so far are Burning Gold, Human, and One Night. And of course the duet Be My Forever with Ed Sheeran.
