On la musica front
I don’t do a very good job of tracking songs I listen to just because I listen to radio a lot of the time and I forget song names. Recently, I’ve been trying to put together a playlist. There are a few songs that I’ve had on repeat and I figured that it would be a good idea to actually set up a playlist for jogging.
My music interests cross over into different genres and as usual I find a similar theme in the music that I tend to like: melody and lyrics. That’s a bit different for jogging, so there are going to be less of that here, but it wouldn’t be my playlist without any of that at all. It’s quite the mishmash…
1. I find each of these individual songs slightly annoying but catchy. When combined, however, they just sound like they belong together. Like Mike + Dimitri Vegas + Martin Garrix vs Naughty Boy ft Sam Smith – Tremors vs La La La. Go figure.
2. Rayel’s Aeon of Revenge is still topping my list this week. That keyboard riff makes my fingers itch to figure it out.
3. Hardwell’s remix of Outside by Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding
4. Calvin Harris leads me to Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood. The first time I heard this song, I wasn’t sure I liked it. Now I can’t get enough. That seems to be a trend with me and T Swizzle’s newer songs.
5. Sheryl Crow with The First Cut is the Deepest. Ok. So this is my first emo-ish song on the list. But for running it’s easier to find something that has a beat and run to it.
6. Beyonce’s Crazy in Love (2014 Remix) has been on my list since the trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey came out. The soundtrack is pretty decent even if the movie isn’t.
7. Chantal Kreviazuk’s Feels Like Home is one of those classics that I keep going back to. I forgot about it for a while but came across is 2 months ago and have been playing it non-stop since.
8. Glen Campbell’s I’m Not Gonna Miss You is definitely a tearjerker. But now that I’ve listened to it so many times, I can safely add it to my running playlist. I definitely can’t listen to it too hard though because that actually makes me a bit sad.
9. Irene Cara’s What a Feelin’! is a pretty good build up. Love love love this song!
And that’s it folks. That about rounds out my key play list for the moment.
