I had the idea of creating playlists to share on this blog and I hope they add a new dimension to the words I share with you. Here is a collection of songs I have chosen to allow you to meet me through music.
YOUNG ADULT - RITT MOMNEY
This entire playlist is filled with songs that embody my favorite genre(s) of music, but this song struck me as soon as I heard it. There's something about the chords and the vocalist that make me think of it as being a cross between Weezer's and Paramore's sounds, but with it's own unique twists. Pretty are the simple few.
SILVERTONGUE - YOUNG THE GIANT
A pinch of angst and a splash of energy make Silvertongue an undeniable banger. It's a fun song that reminds me of summer, and it's an easy way for me to tell you that I know my way around words.
SIZE OF THE MOON - PINEGROVE
Size of the Moon starts out a little slower. The singer has that typical angsty indie sound. It sort of feels like a reflection of my energy on days when I'm feeling especially cynical and I'm over everyone around me. Honestly, what's not to like? If you haven't already caught on to my word play, read the titles in order to get a better idea of how this song fits into the list.
TALK TOO MUCH - COIN
Another jam, "YOU KNOW I TALK TOO MUCH". This song is too fun, not to give it a listen. In fact, do yourself a favor and start building a playlist for the summer now. It will give you something to look forward to amidst the chill of this this bleak, neverending winter.
IN QUIET ROOMS - OLLIE MN
I fell in love with the song for over a month after hearing it. It's just so beautiful. Something about it warms me up inside and melts away the thoughts in my mind, so it's just me and the music. That's how I like it.
Again, read the titles in order to decipher my piecemeal message. If you've figured it out, then you know I'm that girl. It's the truth. I can't say I'm proud of it but I have to be honest with you.
MIDNIGHT CITY - M83
Midnight City will always be a jam. It ranks on my Top Ten List, though arguably every song can rank on your Top Ten List as long as you don't write it down. In other words, I'm indecisive, and Midnight City is technically on my theoretical Top Ten but that doesn't make my love for it any less real.
PUZZLE PIECES - SAINT MOTEL
You can hear the influence of funk laced throughout this song, though I can't call this a bad thing. Puzzle Pieces is the type of song that makes you want to move your body. It's fun, it's fresh, and it's forever young.
SAY WHEN - JUKEBOX THE GHOST
The start of this song is hilariously relatable. Now that I think about it, Say When pretty accurately describes a good portion of my life. It could very well serve on a soundtrack set to accompany my autobiography: Cynical and Saltly Bitter (which is a close tie with Cynical and Slightly Unseasoned).
Yes, I have other autobiographical titles in mind, but this song would go so well with this one. Don't you agree?
I WEAR GLASSES - MATING RITUAL
I wear glasses. Beyond the fact that this song is pretty great, this is the extent of the logic behind this song choice. Some things shouldn't be overthought.
I'M A REALIST - THE CRIBS
"I'm an indecisive piece of shit." There you have it folks. As Jarman sings, "I know it's only a matter of time before you know it so why not let you know now". Glad to meet you!
I'LL TRY ANYTHING ONCE - JULIAN CASABLANCAS
And here are all my choices! You'll get this if you actually listen to the playlist, so go ahead and get on that! Click the image below to listen to the playlist.
