Troye Sivan is a South African-born, Australian singer-songwriter, actor and YouTuber with a series of singles, albums, EPs, movies and vlogs under his belt.
This particular version of the song, ‘Easy’, is a remix of his original track, and was released in December 2020. It features vocals from American singer-songwriter, Kacey Musgraves and production from British musician and producer Mark Ronson. In fact, Musgraves actually co-wrote and performed a new verse specially for the song, whilst Ronson added a really cool disco-pop vibe to the track.
The song is catchy as hell and the perfect song for Tuneful Tuesday, as I’ve had it on repeat for days!
The music video for the track is pretty awesome too – featuring both Sivan and Musgraves as two people on the run, driving vintage cars, dyeing their hair and perfoming in a motel room as well as going to over-the-top drag shows and dancing the night away. It’s a must-watch!

We have featured OneRepublic before, with their remarkable song, ‘Can’t Stop‘ but today I have chosen 3 of their most uplifting songs to feature. The band, as a whole, usually write upbeat songs or ones with positive messages, and these songs are incredible.
‘Good Life‘ is taken from their second album, Waking Up and its almost satirical lyrics and light-hearted instrumentation make for a wonderful song.
OneRepublic – ‘Good Life’
‘Feel Again’ is a unique song as the beat was inspired by the heartbeats of children and their work with Save The Children on their ‘Every Beat Matters’ campaign. It’s such a fun song and the chorus just hooks you right in.

Ryan Tedder penned this track for his four-year-old son, yet lyrically I think this song can speak to everyone around the world. Its all about saying that you’ve lived your life to the fullest and no matter what happens along the way, you can say you did it! My favourite lyric is; “With every broken bone, I swear I lived.” The video is amazing too; featuring a 15-year-old fan of the band (Bryan Warneck) living with cystic fibrosis and even though he faces this each and every day, he still makes the most of his life; it’s such a powerful message.
