June Playlist

Howdy!

I am posting this a week earlier than I originally planned on because I am going to be writing about Nolan’s birthday party. It is going to be a fairly large post with lots of things, and I didn’t want to force myself to write it up in three days so this is your gift for the end of the blogging week instead!

Honestly I wanted to work on this like four days after the May playlist published but I told myself to chill and wait until I actually create a fairly good size list for this month. Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be giving you a 20 song playlist this time around but I think you’ll still appericate it anyways, right?

Dancing With A Stranger by Sam Smith featuring Normani
The World We Made by Ruelle
Flexible by Jordan McGraw
Wait For Me by Jake Miller
Brand New by Ben Rector
The Outside by Taylor Swift
Here With Me by Marshmello featuring CHVCHES
Out Of Love by Alessia Cara
Playwitme by Kyle featuring Kehlani
Tip Toe by Jason Durelo featuring French Montana
Thinking Bout You by Ciara
365 by Zedd featuring Katy Perry
Wish Wish by dJ Khale featuring Cari B & 21 Savage
Sound Of War by Tommee Profitt x Fleurie
Back It Up by Prince Royce featuring Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull
So Am I by Ava Max
Chances by Backstreet Boys
Started by Iggy Azalea
Unforgettable by French Montana
My Prerogative by Britney Spears

Okay, so maybe I was wrong and I have listened to over 20 songs already this month! It took me about an hour just to get that list together, because I kept coming up with songs and trying to add on to the previous list was a pain in the ass, but I got it done so I’m a happy camper now!

Two songs that I have been loving like crazy are “Flexible” and “Wait For You,” they are so good! I was hooked the moment they each started playing. They both have very catchy lyrics and melodies, I am really bad at keeping still whenever they come on so I know that’s a good sign! I am still shocked that Jordan McGraw is actually the youngest son of Dr. Phil! I thought he was a rocker? Oh well, the song’s great.

The one female track that I want to talk about is Alessia’s song “Out Of Love.” Like the other two above, I only had to hear it once and I was gone. It’s such a bittersweet type of song, but it’s also very beautiful too! What gets me though, is that it reminds me of a song that was on the film, Look Who’s Talking with Kirstie Alley, John Travolta, and Bruce Willis. The song that I’m talking about is called “You Need Hands” by Dan Lennon. The reason why Alessia Cara’s song makes me think of this song is when she gets to the chorus and how slow she says each word, the music too helps bring back that similar sound of this track specifically at the chorus. I can’t to find out how many of you actually attempt to listen to the songs and see if I have actually lost my mind or not.

I think the Ben Rector song will always be on my June playlist, mainly because it was literally the first song that I heard on the radio when we got home from Nolan’s birth. I actually didn’t go to sleep right away like my parents, so that is how I managed to hear it. And what was really interesting, is that I heard it on the day of the party! So, it has a very special place in my heart and deserves to be on here every year!

What were you listening to this month? How are you about hearing songs play on days that hold special meanings, whether it’s good or bad?

May Playlist

Howdy!

Well May is over and we move on to the summer months, where music really comes alive. It’s the time of the year that I actually look forward to, because of this exact reason. I think the combination of new and old summer anthems can put anyone in a good mood, so that’s why I tend to enjoy the summertime. May to mid-September are the best months out of the year.

This month I’ve been listening to a lot of great music. I was really craving, maybe not a word you’d expect to see in sentence about music but, something different from my normal mix that I tend to listen to on YouTube. So, I remembered some of the various playlists on here and there are some posts that have both Spotify and typed out lists of songs; I knew these blog posts would be the best thing to do! It’s funny how I really do these posts for you guys, but they help me out a lot!

I have decided to keep the amount the same as I did last month at 20 songs. The reason for this is because whenever I write out only 10 songs, I am usually keeping a ton of other songs back and hoping I continue to listen to them in the next month so I can put them on the next post but that doesn’t always happen so this is just easier on my brain!

Rescue Me by OneRepublic
Sunshine by River Matthews
Welcome Home by Hellyeah
Empire by Nick Fradiani
Nightmare by Halsey
Cross Me by Ed Sheeran featuring Chance The Rapper & PnB Rock
Don’t Leave Me Alone by David Guetta featuring Anne-Marie
Don’t Kill My Vibe (Griffyn Remix) by Sigrid
Battlefront by Rage Of Light
Freaky Carnival by Infected Rain
Masters Of Destiny by Delain
How Can I Forget by MKTO
Holy Water by Laurel
Light It Up by Marshmello featuring Tyga & Chris Brown
The Words by Christina Perri
I Never Told You by Colbie Calliet
You Don’t It For Me Anymore by Demi Lavoto
A Thousand Years (Lullaby) by Christina Perri
Bad Guy by Billie Eilish
Seasons Of Love by RENT

If you’re a Spotify user, and want to check out what else I was listening to this month, click here to be redirected to the actual May playlist.

Another thing that I like about summer is that it means that music festivals are in full swing again! Now I’ve never attended one before, but I do have a couple that I look forward looking up after it’s all over on YouTube, and they are Aftershock and Lollaplooza. The reason why I love Aftershock is because it’s generally all rock and heavy metal bands that perform in California. The lineups are usually really good but when it comes to Lolla, I like it for its variety. Even though, it started out as a rock festival too, overtime the direction has changed so they have a lot of pop and EDM acts, but that’s what I love about it, is because it’s all genres and the audience itself have diverse music tastes too or they wouldn’t be there in the first place.

So, what makes you look forward to summer? Do you have a music festival that you would to go to in the future? And finally, what was your favorite song in the month of May?

February Playlist

Untitled

Howdy!

February has been a good musical month for me though. I’ve heard a lot of good songs over the last couple of weeks. They actually appeared towards the end of January, I actually added two of them into last month’s list last minute because I felt as though I needed to share them with you at that moment. Hope you all enjoy this list of songs!

Speak To Me – Amy Lee
You Can’t Rely – Counterfeit
Bastards – Machine Head
The Middle – Zedd featuring Maren Morris & Grey
Sick Boy – The Chainsmokers
All These Years – Camila Cabello
Him & I – G-Eazy featuring Halsey
I Fall Apart – Post Malone
River – Eminem featuring Ed Sheeran
Filthy – Justin Timberlake
Gensis – Ruelle
Geromino – Sheppard
This Is The End – RAIGN
Keep Up – Rachel Platten
Scream It Out – Ellie Goulding
It Won’t Kill Ya – The Chainsmokers featuring Louane

I had fun with a couple of extended plays and I had one album review I did too! I’m hoping to continue to more for March but we’ll just have to see about it. I have decided officially that I will not be discussing G-Eazy’s new album as I had planned. I don’t do a lot of rap music on my blog, so I don’t know how to breakaway from my normal mindset while also paying attention to a person rap very quickly at the same time. The only reason why I did Mike Shinoda’s was because I already knew what I was getting myself into before I even started writing anything down.

January Playlist

january

Howdy!

This is the first month of 2017, what did you think of it? Better than December in general? Or was it just okay?

Soo… I have some good news. My Spotify started working suddenly! My little logo on the side of my menu hasn’t been working since maybe April and then it went off officially in May and didn’t have it until Dec. 28th, I still don’t know why it’s working but I’ve been loving the crap out of it!

I knew I missed Spotify but I didn’t think I missed it this much! One of the first things I did was make a whole new playlist for my blog. I bet nobody knew it was different, which is okay. I haven’t been very open about it because I figured it would stop working on me. In case it ever does that again I created a playlist of songs I missed and hadn’t heard in a while! I was even adding songs that I was listening from YouTube for the past eight months. Funnily enough, it’s still growing! This playlist has a total of 300+ songs on it! The last time I checked it, I read 128 songs… I’m just making things easier on myself!

Now to talk about song of the month, which you’d think would be very, very difficult to pick from but it really wasn’t because I went with the first new single of 2017! On New Year’s Day, I woke up late in the afternoon and found out that London Grammar had a new song on their website! It was released about five hours before and I kind of hoped it was up on YouTube (I found it odd that my instinct was to look for it on there first) but it was there! The new track is called “Rooting For You” and man, is it good! I really love them, they’re different and tend to chill me out if I’m having a very hectic day!

Since I had the blog playlist at the side, I didn’t want to necessarily share it again, but I also hadn’t been keeping track because of the amount of music I’ve been listening to! However, I can tell you some artists and genres I’ve been listening to lately. Symphonic metal has come back into my life! I have quite a bit on my iPod but I have a whole playlist that has 830 songs in it. A band that I’ve been obsessed with lately is Beyond The Black. You’ll learn more about them on Thursday! I’ve also been listening to my ole hip hop/rap playlist that has all the good stuff on it. As I’m not much into new rappers, I have been hooked to G-Eazy. I literally have 7 songs on my starred playlist!

However, I’ve been very happy that I can listen to my “Fantasy” tracks without having to worry about it going on a break in the middle and become a total buzzkill! And I’ve titled them “fantasy” but not in a sexy way – ew! I think the best way to describe it is “epic” instrumentals. I mostly use them for whenever I’m doing blog posts or while I work on my project. So that’s what I’ve chosen to share with you today as January’s playlist, is my Volume II fantasy playlist. Enjoy!

What was your song of the month? What was the first song you listened to ring in the new year?

Summer 2016 Playlist

Untitled

Hey guys!

So back in July, for the monthly playlist. I had mentioned that I wanted to wait until the end of summer to release the playlist of summer anthems. Every year we have a certain jam that we listened to like crazy and last year it was Major Lazer’s “Lean On” featuring DJ Snake and Mø. Despite the fact that Major Lazer did release a track, I didn’t think it was as great so I am not including it below.

Apparently, I can never pick just one track, hell no! That would be too easy for me! I ended up putting 20 songs! It’s not a good idea to go track down different songs on YouTube! All of the songs are in my opinion great songs that I heard from the end of April to now. So you might agree and disagree with a few of the tracks I’ve listed but that’s okay!

Be sure to look on my Facebook page after reading this as I will be adding two more songs! One is in the rock and the other is pop! 😉

Hope you enjoy it anyways!

August Playlist

Hey guys,

So I haven’t been doing my job of keeping track of all the songs I’ve listened to this past month. Everytime I went to tell myself “I need to write this down” I would go “oh, I’ll remember it tomorrow” in my head knowing I won’t remember a thing! You’d think I’d know all of this by now, right? Next month there won’t be a monthly playlist. I’ve decided I’ll be picking my top 10 favorite anthems of this summer.

At first, I didn’t know what the song of the month would be, because I couldn’t find one. And then, one day I was over at my nana’s and I had The Chainsmokers new single “Closer” playing in my head. I even noticed myself dancing in her office and there was no music playing except in my head! I think I’m starting to lose it! Everytime I think I have figured out these guy’s music, they surprise me with this song! You need to check it out!

June Playlist

I have another monthly playlist for you! June had a lot of good music but then again I think I say that all the time! I think every month has its own tracks and vibe. It’s been six months and I’m just now getting that now!

Like two months ago, finding the song of the month was difficult. It didn’t come screaming out to me like I thought it would and I usually like knowing earlier or in the middle of the month, it makes me feel better that I don’t have to sit and wait for it to show up! After some time I’ve decided that June’s song of the month is “Bacon” by Nick Jonas! Hope you guys like this playlist! 🙂
