“Best Shot”- Birdy & Jaymes Young

Jaymes Young is right up there with Ellie Goulding in my book; I could listen to him sing “Twinkle Twinkle” and be totally satisfied. I love this new song from the soundtrack to “The Fault In Our Stars” that he’s featured in. I only wish it had more of his voice in it. It sounds like more of a Birdy solo song, and although their harmonies are spot on, her vocals almost overpower his. I like his overall sound and style better than Birdy’s, and I wish the soundtrack included one of his solo songs. Nonetheless this is a beautiful ballad if you like music that’s on the more poppy/mellow side.

The soundtrack looks decent and well rounded. It features M83, STRFKR, Lykke Li, and Ed Sheeran, among others.
