The Sweet Five #26 (Collaboration Edition)

Every week we will be featuring The Sweet Five! What’s The Sweet Five you may ask? Well I’ll drop you five sweet songs that you should listen to once a week, that will help you get over your mid-week slump and set sail towards the ever-nearing weekend! Ready? Okay!

Panic! At The Disco featuring Fun. – C’mon

Panic! and Fun. have put one of the greatest songs together, and I know that it’s not exactly the most known song out there. Although, every time I want a pick-me-up I just play this track. The sound each band produces just matches the other perfectly. “C’mon” is one of the catchiest songs you’ll ever hear. Some of the best work by each band.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton – Can’t Hold Us

I’m going to be honest. When I first heard “Thrift Shop”, I totally wrote off Macklemore as an artist I want to invest time in to. It’s been about three months since that moment and now I am hooked on him. The Heist is a solid album, and the honesty and the raw feelings felt in each track make an emotional connection. Ray Dalton has a great voice, too.

City And Colour featuring Gordon Downie – Sleeping Sickness

You’re all aware if you follow this blog just how much of a Dallas Green fan I am. Add The Tragically Hip to that list and you’ve got two of Canada’s greatest. Gordon Downie adds an element so beautiful, that there are no such words to describe this song. The deepness in his voice opens up a passage just so tear-jerking that I sound like a big softie.

Frank Ocean featuring Earl Sweatshirt – Super Rich Kids

Grammy winning artist Frank Ocean is one of the biggest influences in my life since I first discovered him three years ago. There’s just too much amazing in Ocean’s voice that there was no doubt Channel Orange was going to be a hit. Earl is also known as the best rapper in Odd Future, so combine their two talents and you have this super production.

Kid Kodak and Murphy D – Culdesac

Big ups to these two boys. Featured and supported dearly by The Record Stache, there was no missing these two off this edition. Some of the tightest flows you’ll hear. A big future ahead. Scrap that, these two are the future. Get on it. Not to brag, but I get a mention on their Suburbia mixtape. #beardlife
