"Medicine" - The 1975

Now here's something I haven't done for a long time: written a music post and highlighted a song (yesterday's Rick Astley/Rita Ora post doesn't count, as I wasn't specifically writing about their music). So what song have I chosen today? It's "Medicine":

"Medicine" was composed by The 1975, a Manchester-based band. I first heard of The 1975 a couple of years ago when I heard another one of their songs, "Chocolate", playing on the radio. When I started attending college, my close friend there told me early on in our course that The 1975 were a band she enjoyed listening to. A month later, I heard "Medicine" play on the radio during, of all things, an anti-bullying/anti-suicide segment hosted by Tulisa Contostavlos, a singer.

However, when "Medicine" played, I was unaware it was by The 1975 but I liked the song and so I listened carefully to the lyrics and Googled them. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was by one of my good friend's favourite bands and it just so happens that "Medicine" is, by far, my favourite The 1975 song. It's a beautiful piece and often when I am feeling down, I play it because it improves my mood and helps me to cope with whatever is affecting me.

Please enjoy "Medicine". I intentionally repeat myself when I say that it's beautiful; I'm not convinced my post truly captures and adequately promotes the beauty and feelings of this song.


  1. This is my first time hearing the 1975, we have their CD at the library, but I had never heard them before. I really like "Medicine"! I will have to check the CD out and upload it to iTunes.

    1. I 100% recommend The 1975; I think it's neat that your library has their CD! :D
