Music Monday: Sam Smith

10 February 2014

This guy doesn’t need much of an introduction. Just do me a favor:

In this order listen to the following songs + tell me Sam Smith is not the definition of swoon-worthy.

1) Remind yourself of how you first came to learn of Sam Smith by listening to “Latch” where he lends his vocals to the electronic band Disclosure. Tap your toes, shimmy your shoulders, send it to a friend and remember to use the word “enchant” more often. 

2) Now that you’re settled down – maybe you’re sitting? From Smith’s EP album “Nirvana” press play on the acoustic version of “Latch”  You totally got goosebumps around 1:19 didn’t you?  You want to call Elvis Duran right now and dedicate this song to your crush. You can download the entire album here and play it for your buttercup while you make her lambchops with edible flora and give her a handwritten letter for Valentine’s Day.

“I’m so encaptured, got me wrapped up in your touch
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest.”

3) Count down the days until Sam Smith plays Webster Hall on March 24th, 2014.  Full North American tour dates here.

4) Re-wind and play the song again.
