Billie Eilish is never afraid to share her love for other artists.
In an episode from “me & dad” radio with Eilish and her dad, Patrick O’Connell, she revealed a few songs that were most important to her from her childhood.
The 18-year-old star, shared her favourite artist growing up were by The Beatles, Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne.
But one song in particular that she seriously loves the most is Avril’s ‘Losing Grip’ track.
“This is my favourite Avril song ever, a very big song from my childhood as well as ‘Complicated’, as well as ‘I’m With You’, as well as ‘Sk8er Boi’, ‘Girlfriend’, blah, blah, blah, ‘Keep Holding On’, Eilish. ‘Losing Grip’ was released in 2003 as the final single from Lavigne’s debut album ‘Let Go’ (2002).
“But this one came back into my life in 2018, and we used to just get down to this song. God…we used to just scream this song in the car. God, this song,” Eilish continued. “This chorus is just like … Oh my God, it’s so good, and the beat… Oh my God.”
“I’ve never heard a sound like that in my life. There is no other song like this. There’s no other song. I’m telling you, this song does not get old. I was with all my homies two years ago, and we would just scream this song wherever we went. God. Every time I hear that beginning, I’m like, ‘Okay, let’s get ready. Okay.’”
Eilish also shared that her love for Britney’s 1998 hit ‘One More Time’. “This one, this is a classic. Everybody knows ‘Baby One More Time’. I used to dance in the living room to this on my tiny little horrible speaker. Let’s go. Let’s go, Britney.”
Growing up Eilish also listened The Beatles’ –especially from their 1969 single ‘Something’, taken from their penultimate album ‘Abbey Road’. “I remember listening to this song when I was in love, or whatever, and yeah. This song really, once again, got me. I don’t know. I think that it’s such a well put song,” she said.
