Monday’s playlist.

26 Nov

Due to the frequent playlist posts by Mackenzie over at whatever gatsby, I have been inspired to have my own playlist post since the only way I’ll be keeping my sanity through the coming weeks of final exams and papers is through music and lots and lots of coffee.

Here’s the specific variety of music I’ll be listening to today to help myself get through the papers I need to tackle over the next week:

  • The Longer I Run by Peter Bradley Adams
  • Restless by Alison Krauss and Union Station
  • Giving Up by Ingrid Michaelson
  • All This Beauty by The Weepies
  • Gypsy by Fleetwood Mac
  • You And Me by Dave Matthews Band
  • Why Georgia by John Mayer
  • Up To The Mountain by Patty Griffin
  • As It Seems by Lily Kershaw
  • Never Say Die by Dixie Chicks
  • Change by Tracy Chapman
  • Lifeline by Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals

Tuesday’s Tunes: Dixie Chicks.

My packing soundtrack.

11 Aug

I’ve spent most of today packing since I move into my first apartment on Wednesday (Yay!). Normally I find packing to be quite a chore even if it is exciting in the beginning. Thankfully, when I came home for the summer at the beginning of May, I left the majority of my stuff in boxes since I knew that I wouldn’t be using most of it until classes started back in the fall. That being said, though I’ve got a good amount of stuff already in boxes, I’ve got to go through those boxes and make sure I still want everything. Plus, since I’m moving into my first apartment, I’ve also got to include kitchen stuff and other knickknacks that I didn’t need when I was just in a dorm room.

The plus about my packing routine though is that I always play music. I’ve loved music for as long as I can remember, and even though my music taste has changed over the years, my love of music has remained strong. Anyone who has ever tried to pin down my music taste normally doesn’t have too much luck since my music taste is so varied. I love country because I grew up in the South and it’s my connection to my Southern roots. I love singer/songwriters because to me they signify real music since you know that the musicians wrote their own songs and sing them because they feel like it’s their true passion (and there’s nothing more inspiring than that). I also love music from Broadway musicals (primarily Rent and Wicked). I was involved in community theatre from ages 8 to 16, so I have an appreciation for the theatre industry. Also, because of my theatre background, I’ve seen 3 different Broadway musicals in New York City (Hairspray, All Shook Up, and Wicked), and they pretty much changed my life. Despite those three genres (country, singer/songwriter, and broadway musicals), I still have a relatively wide range of music that I listen to on a regular basis. However, in terms of my soundtrack for today’s packing, I’ve stuck to country songs. Here are some examples:

  • Neon by Chris Young
  • When She’s On by Chris Young
  • Cowboys and Angels by Dustin Lynch
  • Heads Carolina, Tails California by Jo Dee Messina
  • Never Say Die by Dixie Chicks
  • You by Chris Young
  • (Kissed You) Goodnight by Glorianna
  • Time Is Love by Josh Turner
  • Glass by Thompson Square
  • Lovin’ You Is Fun by Easton Corbin
  • Wanted You More by Lady Antebellum

Do you have any specific music you like to listen to while packing?
