All 6 Songs On Troye Sivan's New 'In A Dream' EP, Ranked

Troye Sivan has unleashed his new EP, "In A Dream," today and here are all of its tracks, ranked.

All 6 Songs On Troye Sivan's New 'In A Dream' EP, Ranked

Troye Sivan spent most of last year on tour. He was supporting his sophomore album, "Bloom." It was a healthy mix of dance and pop which openly explored love from a gay male perspective. It was the first time Sivan's lyrics were as happy as his music sounded.

On his latest offering, "In A Dream," Sivan delves deep into themes of heartbreak and self-image. Perhaps the love he celebrated on "Bloom" is no more. Whatever Sivan's personal circumstances are, his music is, as always, an honest reflection of himself.

The full EP is out today and here are all 6 of its tracks, ranked.

6. "Take Yourself Home"

This was the first song we got from the EP back in April. It talks about taking a break from your daily life to remember your roots. It's an anthem, of sorts, for not losing sight of who you are.

The best part of the song is the house beat that comes in at the end. This was a song Sivan planned on releasing later this year, but rushed it early due to the pandemic.

5. "Could Cry Just Thinkin' About You"

Something tells me if this track were longer, it would get a higher ranking. The melody of the chorus is so damn catchy and infectious. It's a crime this is only under a minute.

This feels more like an interlude than a song. I have a feeling there is a full version of this somewhere. If that's true, Troye needs to let us hear it right away!

4. "Stud"

While this could be seen as an anthem for going clubbing and picking up a hot guy, Sivan says there is a deeper meaning. The other layer of this song discusses body image and feelings of inadequacy while looking for a partner. This is something the gay community knows all too well.

Like with most of his work, Sivan continues his tradition of providing our lives with a much-needed soundtrack. Not to mention that the house beat tops it all off with a major slice of perfection.

3. "Easy"

This eighties-inspired tune is the kind of song that will get stuck in your head instantly. Sivan recounts a moment of infidelity and pleads with his lover not to leave.

The contrast between the heartbreaking lyrics and upbeat synths is genius. It feels like a nostalgia trip and classic Troye all at the same time.

2. "In A Dream"

It's easy to understand why this is both the title track and the last track on the EP. It is certainly the most anthemic and powerful song of the bunch. It also perfectly tops off the EP's theme of heartbreak and loss.

Sivan recounts the difficulty in recovering from a breakup when you dream about your ex. It is a relatable story people can see themselves in and could be very healing as a result.

1. "Rager Teenager!"

This track belongs at number one because of the melody alone. It hooks you and pulls you in right away. The lyrics also catch your attention, as they tackle desire and throwing caution to the wind.

It's a moment of escape and release that makes sense among the tough reality dealt with in the other songs.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
