Hello. I have decided to do a thing. A thing where I give you my iPod playlist each month. I am calling this Playlist Pandemonium. I am an admitted music addict and am always on the prowl (like a cat) for new songs/artists.
Warning: I listen to hippie, indie music, and if you are into that kind of thing too, then I think we can probably be best friends. And if your favorite band is Death Cab for Cutie too then we might just need to be best friends. If you are not into hippie, indie music, then I suggest you not read my Playlist Pandemonium posts, because there will undoubtedly be copious amounts of ranting on the subject.
Anyways, I am very much open to music suggestions, so how about we strike a deal: I post my playlist each month, and you, lovely Reader, comment below some songs that are on your playlist that month. I think that sounds good, don’t you? It will be like one, big music-sharing fiesta.
Okey. Here is my playlist for November which I have entitled Nostalgic November (yes, I do give my playlists alliterative titles).
Lately, I have been obsessed with a fabulous, indie band I found called Stars. I love pretty much all their songs, (which is rare for me) but this month I have especially been adoring Calendar Girl and Heart. You just gotta trust me and listen to them. I do not use the word fabulous lightly.
I am unhealthily addicted to Lorde’s new album, (if you only listen to Royals by her then you are missing out) and I have especially been enjoying Tennis Court.
Also of note this month is the song Lua by Bright Eyes. I adooore Bright Eyes, and this song is one of my all time favorites of theirs. Although the story is haunting and very sad, there is something about it that is calming and beautiful to listen to. I’ll never get sick of it.
And I had to add Boston by Augustana, because I was listening to it the other day, and realized the story is kind of really accurate to my life. It is about a guy who is in love with a girl, and they both live in California. The girl, however, is depressed and needs a change of environment, so she decides to move to Boston. For those of you who did not know, I used to live in California, but then I decided I wanted to go to school in France, so I caught a flight out of Boston in August and now here I am. I needed a change of environment, like the girl (also who doesn’t want to live in the fashion capital of the world?). Ok, so minus the whole depression/having a boy in love with me thing I am the girl in the song. Don’t fight me on this one.
