I haven’t made a playlist in forever, but doing a ton of writing always makes me want to make one. This little batch of wedding writing is about done, but I’m hoping there will be another one soon. I wrote a total of 38 guides this week, roughly 19,000 words. There are a handful more in the pool, and I could stay up and do them, but I’m so tired. I’m so so tired. So! here are some songs that made me twitch around and rock back and forth and feel slightly better while I was working. Don’t question it, it is what it is.
1. Three Days Grace – Painkiller (yeah yeah, I know I know. I really like the chorus. Suck it.)
2. Panic! at the disco – Don’t Threaten Me with a Good Time (stupid but fun)
3. Caravan Palace – Brotherswing (this song sounded so familiar and I thought I might have had it on an earlier playlist, but I totally didn’t. I was recognizing it from a Darlings show.)
4. Metric – Black Sheep (this is like the most famous metric song and I’ve only heard it a few times)
5. Cake Bake Betty – One By One (I love the lyrics for this song but can’t find a lyric vid)
Welp, it’s am and I should absolutely be finishing up my night’s work so I can catch a few hours of sleep… but I had this like 80% put together and I just wanted to have it for tomorrow. (Plus that Kongos shit just came on my pandora again and I was like fuck … I gotta. ) So, hopefully by the time I’m listening to this I will be free, and hopefully it will be a nice Saturday night. This is a beautifully eclectic combination of songs, and I couldn’t be happier with it honestly.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros -40 day dream (rejected this one from an earlier playlist but it’s making a comeback today)
Wax Taylor – Say yes Instrumental mix (What’s a playlist without some electro swing?)
Kongos – I’m only joking (This song grabs a HOLD of me. weird and almost scary. “there’s a song, you’re trembling to it’s tune, at the request of the moon”)
The Bravery – Fistful of Sand (moon version) (this is one of those lyrically sad songs that make me feel uplifted for some reason??)
Twenty one pilots – Tear in my Heart (“But my taste in music is your face!”)
Skeewiff – Don’t Rock the Boat (electro swing again, just delicious beats and sounds and harmonies and mmm nice)
Atreyu – Bleeding Mascara (Because I flailed around in a mosh pit and screamed my face off to this song yo! always one of my Atreyu faves. Couldn’t resist.)
I’m not even numbering this shit because I don’t feel like it. It is what it is. It stands alone, like a lone wolf on a lonely mountain. I just felt like making it, so I did. No reasons, no ulterior motives. Just songs, sounds. Listen to them, or don’t. It’s for me and a little bit for you.
Dragonette – Get Around (Midnight Juggernaut Mix) A catchy gym jam
Modest Mouse – Lampshades on Fire The new modest mouse album is tripping me out, some of the songs hardly sound like them. This one does tho.
Fall Out Boy – Uma Thurman Why do I like this? Top scientists are working ’round the clock to find the answer.
Odesza – It’s only (feat. Zyra) rad sad sweet beats
Modest Mouse – Sugar Boats Jazzed up, but I can hear the modest and the mouse.
Sometimes it’s the weekend, in the waning week of September and the fall air slowly starts to fall over your city. Sometimes you look at Friday night against a backdrop of city lights and feel your chest grow tight tight tight.
Today’s playlist features 100% electro pop type stuff… with all female vocals. Deal with it kids. this is what I’ve been listening to lately because i just have yo. It doesn’t hit me in the feels but it still sometimes makes me feel. It’s fun and light and flighty. Wishing you all as well as my bad self a good weekend. Much love.
1. Purity Ring – Flood on the Floor
2. Melanie Martinez – Soap
3. Tritonal – Still with me (Ft. Cristina Soto) (Seven Lions Mix)
