I'm obsessed with music. It's a side effect of two parents who are both always blasting their old school tunes for me. I can't help it :)
Anyways, the thing about music is that it's just a huge inspiration for me, but not just in the musical sense. Also just creatively, in writing, and especially in fashion. Whenever I hear a song, I imagine random scenes from movies that it would work for, or music videos, or just snapshots of anything and everything. And that's before I even look at the pictures!
So on our trip to Seaside, I made a play-list, titled:
The Playlist That Makes Other Playlists Cry-AKA-Zombies, Lucifers, and Demons, OH MY!
1. The Old Days-Dr. Dog
I might have fallen in love with this song. And if you look at the album cover, for some reason it looks like a guy pointing a gun at a zombie to me....
2. Furr-Blitzen Trapper
I'm obsessed with wolves...and this song is beautiful to me
3. First Day of My Life-Bright Eyes
One of the sweetest things I've ever heard in my life! So wonderful :) I want someone to feel this way about me!
4. Lit Up-Faire du Surf (this is a local band in Vancouver! They're wonderful, but obviously unknown! Support them!)
5. Scar That Never Heals-Jeremy Fisher
6. Somewhere Only We know-Keane
(This is a song that brings back memories of childhood)
7. Anything For You-Ludo
The whimsical and sweet lyrics of this are so wonderful and dreamy!
8. Our House-Madness
9. The Cave-Mumford and Sons
Is there ever any need to explain Mumford and Sons???
10. Animal-Neon Trees
For some reason, I find this song supremely sexy, and the music video is sick. I'm kinda in love with the awkwardly-limp-mohawked lead singer ;P
11. Relator-Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn
Have you ever heard Scarlett Johansson sing? It's lovely :)
12. From Where I'm Standing-Schuyler Fisk
This is from a really sweet movie called I'm Reed Fish. It's one of my favorites :)
13. Murder in the City-The Avett Brothers
14. Howlin For You-The Black Keys
I'm really loving on The Black Keys...and this is another mighty sexy song!
15. Fables-The Dodos
16. Buildings and Mountains-The Republic Tigers
This is my favorite song on the CD that I hadn't heard before I downloaded it. If that makes sense. I knew some of these before, but this one I found one day and just downloaded it. It's my favorite new song? Anyways i love it with a strong passion
17. Electric Twist-A Fine Frenzy
Alison Sudol! I have been listening to her for the past few years, and I love her so much! I'm glad she's getting more recognition for her loveliness!
18. Brown Eyed Girl-Van Morrison
I have this dream that my future husband will dedicate this song to me :)
19. My Body-Young the Giant
One day, Nancy wouldn't stop singing one line of this song, and I had never heard it before. I resolved to hate it because she was driving me absolutely insane. Then I heard it for real. And now I love it.
So this is my first little playlist to share with you lovelies! Next? Either "The Playlist That Tears Other Playlists to Shreds-Aka-Team Zombie", or "The Playlist That is Colossally Bigger Than Others-Aka-I'm a Freaking African Elephant" Either way, I'm excited :)
And it's funny. I get so much inspiration from these songs, it's insanity! MADNESS I TELL YOU!!!
Tell me some of your favorite songs!
