music monday | june 22nd 2015

Sorry I’ve been basically dead for the last week or so, I blame the fact that my professors plan all their courses to overload students during this one week. Don’t spread it out or anything, I’ll just be a zombie it’s fine, really. During this week I alternated between blasting my music and getting too frustrated and just shutting everything off to focus on my papers. There are no weird artists on this week’s mix, I promise (Emily this is for you).

  1. Young Volcanoes – Fall Out Boy
    • The throwbacks, always with the throwbacks. I blame Jill for this one because she went to a FOB concert this week and that got me started on a chain of FOB songs. We are wild (but just don’t tell your interviewer that).
  2. Hero – Family of the Year
    • There’s always a couple of songs in my playlists that I tend to play more than others. This and the one following it are basically the most gorgeous songs that will inevitably make you feel like you’re in a sad scene on a television show. Sorry in advance if this makes you reflect on your life.
  3. Heartbeats – Jose Gonzales
    • In fact, I think that I heard this song at some point on Bones (which I have loved and also given up on in recent seasons) and it’s probably been stuck in my head since. The original of this song is very different than Jose Gonzales’s cover and has a really different feel.
  4. 11:11 – Arkells
    • I actually didn’t like this song the first time I heard it and rejected it in my mind in favour of Come to Light and Leather Jacket, but I did a relisten of my Arkells songs and I guess sleep-deprived me was very into this song. Disclaimer: it might have been 11:11 when it came on.
  5. 40 Day Dream – Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes
    • It’s no Home, but it is a magical mystery kind.
  6. There is a Light That Never Goes Out – The Smiths
    • Confession time, I hated 500 Days of Summer. Okay, hate is a strong word, but I wasn’t a fan at all. It has a lot to do with the fact that I’m sick of Zooey Deschanel play the same manic pixie dream girl in all her movies and shows. But I did love that they had The Smiths in the movie – only redeeming thing.
  7. Snap Out of It – Arctic Monkeys
    • Ugh, I can basically always listen to the Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner is my ultimate dream musician boyfriend. I saw them in concert last summer and he did this hair flip and touched my soul. I tend to play Snap Out of It in tandem with Knee Socks on summer nights with the window open and no pants.
