#onrepeat – 7/11/16

So as it turns out, the 4 people who actually read my Music Monday posts preferred when I wrote about why I chose the songs each week. But am I going to cater my blogging style for 4 people? Yeah probably – I’m pretty sure that’s like 40% of my subscription base. I’ve actually been pretty good about going to the gym regularly (it helps that I go with a buddy so I feel guilty when I want to stay in bed) so half of this playlist is songs I’m running (read: dying) to.

And not that I’m a secret Spotify shill or anything but I also use their Running feature and it’s pretty solid in terms of song choices and actually matching my pace. 10/10 would recommend.

1/ tokyo summer – mounties (ultimate chill summer song, I think I listened to this a lot last year – maybe too much)
2/ hold me down – halsey (I’ve jumped on this Halsey love-train a little late but she’s so so good! reportedly also fantastic live so I’m excited for her next Toronto show)
3/ summer skin – death cab for cutie (best consumed during those not-as-sticky summer nights. I have a balcony this summer so I can even sit there and brood with the perfect playlist.)
4/ on melancholy hill – gorillaz (Please see the brooding comment above.)
5/ this is what you came for – calvin harris + rihanna (I get the feeling that this song is so catchy because there are only 10 whole different lines to learn. Nonetheless I still wake up humming this goddamn song.)
6/ sex – cheat codes remix (no judgements but this is really good for treadmill running. fun story time – last week my phone fell off the treadmill during this song last week and I stopped moving because I got distracted by it so obviously I fell off the treadmill and onto my ass. the sheer embarrassment then prompted me to run my best time so I guess it was ultimately a win.)
7/ banana pancakes – jack johnson (made the mistake of playing this song right before me + pals went on a mini-hike where we all had it stuck in our heads in the middle of the forest. later that week I gave in and made pancakes, but they weren’t banana sorry.)
8/ please don’t go – joel adams (the humming at the beginning is definitely what hooked me but the rest of the song is amazingly needy if you actually pay attention to the lyrics.)
