Sometimes my weekly playlists have a specific theme. Songs about Cats, for instance, had a theme of, well, cats. The It will Get Loud series has a theme of songs that, well, will get loud. This week’s playlist has no theme. In fact, this week’s playlist consists of 31 songs that really have no relation to each other. However, all 31 songs are songs that I like to listen to as I go about my daily life. There are some brand new songs, that have instantly bonded with my brain. There are also songs I’ve listened to my entire life. I have a few covers and a few original songs. I have artists I listen to on a regular basis and artists that I hardly listen to at save for one or two songs. Regardless, these are songs for living life (at least my life). So, maybe there is a theme – just not an obvious theme.
While these songs are the soundtrack for my life, they are not just songs I’ve played and replayed in other playlists. As tempting as it might be to play “Sometimes” by My Bloody Valentine for the 20th time, I also want to provide my loyal readers with at least some variety. So I’ve included songs like Same Song by The Digital Underground, and Very Ape by Nirvana. With that said, I do include a host of artists I lean heavily on. The Beatles, Elvis Costello, The Flaming Lips, Weezer, U2, David Bowie, Pixies, Devo, Lush, XTC – you get the picture. But it’s still a great mix filled with fresh songs.
I hope you enjoy Songs for Living Life. Come back after the playlists to read a special announcement about next week.
When Will There be more songs for living life?
Folks, there might not be a playlist next week. I have a major personal event going down, and I don’t know if I’ll have the time or the energy to do a playlist. It happens, I know. And yes, I am still working on my previously mentioned articles, but again, you’ll need a little patience. Until then, why not check out a few of my previous writings. Maybe you yourself would love to learn how to make playlists. Heck, if you go this route, post your playlists in my Facebook group, I Love Playlists. It’s pretty lonely, and I would love to see the creation of others.
Until next time, rock on, and rock steady.
