happy new year!! new decade!! new beginnings!! speaking of which, we are in the midst of experiencing the beginning of a new era! a new era of art, television, technology, fashion, movies, music- is this what the 80’s felt like!?! it’s all very exciting… but as we move on to the 20’s (again) i’d like to reflect on this past decade that has brought so many great tunes into my life. now, if i listed all the songs that have had an impact on me in the last decade or even songs that were just my fuggin jaaammm, we might need another decade just to listen to it all. so i’ve listed some (i had to cut it down) of my favorite albums that i have played (and maybe overplayed) from this past decade. it was a brutal task that no one asked me to do but i enjoyed the walk down memory lane SO… without further ado, here are my favorite albums of the decade.
THIS IS NOT A BREAKUP PLAYLIST! well, it can be if you want it to be, music is subjective and impacts everyone differently but that is not what it was intended to be. i’m a crier; i cry when i’m happy, sad, angry, inspired…i’m big into crying as a way to express myself but not all of these songs are “sad songs“. some of these songs are about love and life and expression. i find some of the lyrics in these songs to be so moving and beautiful that i can’t help but (you guessed it) cry. so, if you need a good cry, listen to this playlist.
summer is officially upon us… i know that because 1.) it’s june 2.) i’m sleeping on top of my blankets 3.) WATERMELONS EVERYWHERE… i love watermelon, nothing says summer quite like a sweet watermelon… i’ve put together a playlist with some tunes that have been keeping me company in this summer heat. grab your swimsuit, slather on that spf 100 (skin cancer is no joke) and don’t forget your speakers.
over the weekend i was combing through my songs on spotify and couldn’t decide on what i wanted to listen to. i gave up and hit shuffle to see what the spotify gods had in store for me… and then a song came on that i hadn’t listened to in a veeerrry long time. so many memories associated with that tune, it made me feel good listening to it again. it got me thinking of all the songs that i used to bump through my speakers day in and day out, some now sadly neglected by myself over the years. so! i put together a little playlist for this throwback thursday in honor of all those tunes that don’t get much play time anymore… you are not forgotten.
in love with this gal. today she gave us a little taste of what to expect from her live at urchin studios album by releasing “for you”; the single off of the album. you can pre-order her album on itunes or listen to the single on spotify as part of my music monday playlist. for this playlist i’ve put together some tunes that i’ve been listening to lately… some old some new some rock and some blues. happy monday!
