The first three episodes of the highly anticipated new TV series, Daisy Jones and the Six, landed on Prime Video last week. Based on the book of the same name by Taylor Jenkins Reid, the series is a fan favourite and, within 24 hours, it topped television charts. However, it is not only the TV charts it’s dominating. Along with the series, an album was released and it has soared to the top of the US iTunes charts which is unheard of for a fictional band – they are the first to do it. So what are the best songs from Daisy Jones?
I have had the album on repeat and it’s got me wishing they were a real band, so here are the best songs to come from the Aurora album and Daisy Jones and the Six.
Look At Us Now (Honeycomb)
This is the song of the series that sums everything up. It’s the first song that Daisy (Riley Keough) and Billy (Sam Claflin) sing together at the end of episode three and it’s perfect. Riley’s vocals are amazing and it’s no surprise that she is Elvis’s granddaughter. The slow start going into the frantic back and forth between the singers is a reflection of Billy and Daisy’s relationship in the show. I have no doubt this song is going to go viral and be a favourite.
Regret me is another favourite that describes Billy and Daisy’s relationship. It’s on the rockier side and was the first song that was released. It really gives those Fleetwood Mac vibes that I think the band are trying to emulate and I can’t wait to see them perform this one live later in the show.
Let Me Down Easy
Let me down easy is a slower, softer song and is one of my personal favourites. They both actually sound like rock singers rather than actors. Considering this is the first time singing professionally for both of them, what they have produced is amazing. The harmonies and instruments in the background pull it all together and create a brilliant song.
The River is my favourite song on the Aurora album. In my opinion it’s the most Fleetwood Mac-like and you can really hear the whole band and production that went into it. It’s both soft and rocky at the same time, with Riley Keough’s vocals stealing the show.
Finally, we have to mention the song the album is named after. Aurora reflects the complicated love story that’s explored within the show and is a beautiful song on its own. It has a similar vibe to the song Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac and really sets up the story for what is about to happen, teasing the audience.
Daisy Jones and the Six is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video.
