Facing West & Cody Lovaas "Don't Let Me Down" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

This post is going to focus on a group of young singers who kindly followed me on twitter. They are fresh, unique with an exceptional collaboration. I loved the featured video straight up and have become an instant fan of all the artists discussed below. 

So, first let me give you a little background.

The song was initially introduce in February 2016 by the group that goes by The Chainsmokers and it features vocals from Daya. They are an American DJ duo, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, from New York City proper. I loved their video that was published on YouTube by ChainsmokersVEVO in April with the title "Don't Let Me Down". It is energetic, entertaining and I highly recommend it. This song has peaked at No. 5 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100, becoming the groups highest charting single to date in the U.S.

Now let’s talk about my featured guests Cody Lovaas and Facing West reintroducing this song with a sultry, folk sound which is just brilliant.

Cody Lovaas is a singer-songwriter, surfer from Carlsbad, California with a distinctive bravura timbre which is laid back almost folk, somewhat of an earthy soulful jazz sound. Now this is strictly my opinion and I highly recommend one of his videos titled “Take a Ride” on YouTube published by Cody Lovaas 2014:

 Now the let me introduce the video that has captured my attention. The title is “The Chainsmokers ft Daya - Don't Let Me Down - by Facing West & Cody Lovaas”. It was uploaded on YouTube by Facing West Music and published last week (Jun 3, 2016).

I love the soulful simple twist and I highly recommend it… It is just brilliant!

"Don’t Let Me Down"
Crashing, hit a wall
Right now I need a miracle
Hurry up now, I need a miracle
Stranded, reaching out
I call your name but you're not around
I say your name but you're not around

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
D-Don't let me down

Don't let me down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down

Running out of time
I really thought you were on my side
But now there's nobody by my side

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
D-Don't let me down

Don't let me down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down

Oh, I think I'm losing my mind now, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, I think I'm losing my mind now, yeah, yeah

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
Don't let me down

Yeah, don't let me down
Yeah, don't let me down
Don't let me down, oh no
Said don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down (down, down, down)
Don't let me down, down, down
