Although listening to more music is not one of my monthly goals anymore I want to keep this going because music has always been a very important part of my life and I want to share it with others. So here it is…
Music I Bought
I got two new CD’s this month which is always super exciting. I decided I didn’t own enough CD’s (which if you know me personally, you know is impossible!) so I ordered from Amazon. I decided on Secondhand Rapture by MS MR and Passive Me Aggressive You by The Naked and Famous. I knew I would like MS MR because I had listened to the entire CD on Spotify before but wanted to have a hard copy for myself. The Naked and Famous I wasn’t sure about. I had heard there 2 popular songs on the radio and thought ‘why not?’ After listening to it a few times I was sad to find out that they seem to be one of those bands that just has a few good songs for the radio and then fill the rest of the CD with whatever is left over. This was kind of disheartening to me so I think I’m going to upload it to my iTunes and listen to it with headphones just to see if I am missing it.
I have to admit my Pandora listening was nonexistent this month. I just wasn’t feeling the randomness of it and I was just in the mood to listen to exactly what I wanted to listen too. On Spotify, I mostly listened to my Be Gentle playlist that I created. It has artists like The Weekend, Flume, ODESZA, James Blake, Jhene Aiko, Banks, Ghostloft, Digital Daggers, Andrew Belle, and Elliphant. I absolutely love every song on this playlist and have been slowly adding more and more artists to this playlist. I love the calming feeling I get when listening to it and it kind of lets me deal with my angst in a weird way.
Repeat Song of the Month
Your So Vain by Carly Simon. I don’t know why I have been listening to this song on repeat in particular other than it is a great song. I love how catchy it is and how she is totally dissing that guy who clearly was a giant man-whore who broke her heart. I can’t help but feel like a stronger woman as I sing along and I’m totally okay with that. GO FEMINISM!!!
