So. This post came together on a whim. You see, I was in the middle of a project earlier in the day only to realize, tomorrow (or today), is FRIDAY… what am I going to post to the blog!? That was followed by, “oh, no worries I have something on my trusty USB archive disc of files.” Wrong. Following this is then the realization that alas, I haven’t really written any reviews for a long time. Which means there are tons I need to write and gush over and encourage you to gush with me. But, they’ll have to wait for next week and following. If I haven’t given you all too much information, we’ll just move on from here. It IS Friday, after all, so let’s talk about our iPod playlist 2014.
Recently I’ve been having some music talk on Twitter and various other places, this made my choice of topic seemingly perfect for today. Why not share some of the songs that have been enjoying LOTS of repeats on my iPod of late (aka, those songs I don’t hit “skip” when they begin) or those I recently found and plan on enjoying on repeat. Yes, there are always several that I’m obsessing over. Some of those are as follows.
iPod Playlist 2014
Dan + Shay, ’19 You + Me.’
Okay, yes, I know this is more a “young” story tune, but I can’t help it. It’s happy and cute and fun.
Lady Antebellum, ‘747’
Haven’t really listened to much of this in all honesty because my physical copy isn’t here yet, but I do like the title track or I did when listening to it via my MP3 download.
Megan Nicole, ‘Feel So Close’
Okay, the blame for this one goes to Meryl and Maks DWTS tango last season; can we just take a moment to again brag on its beauty, I adored everything about said tango – the movement, the passion, the dancers, and this cover version of the song it was danced to just happens to be the one I bought, so it’s the one that goes on the list.
Christina Perri, ‘Human.’
Yet another song I can lay blame to DWTS for. See the show is good for more than just overhyped drama. Or glitter.
Taylor Swift, ‘Shake it Off.’
You knew this one would be on here, right? I know there are lots of you who don’t like this song, but for me, it’s “that” song that instantly puts me in a good mood when it cycles through on my shuffle mode.
That’s all I’ll say since I’ve bored you enough on Twitter as regards this one.
Carrie Underwood, ‘Something in the Water.’
I was so-so about this one first time I heard it because it’s different than Carrie’s usual songs, but after multiple listens… I’m a fan! Cannot wait for more new tracks from this lovely artist.
Other songs I’m always putting on repeat is anything by Florida Georgia Line (what, I can’t help it!) and I’m thrilled they, along with Little Big Town have new albums nearly here! Bring it on, country awesome-ness. Plus, I just bought Birdy’s ‘Not About Angels’ from ‘The Fault in our Stars’ soundtrack (and I’ve been told this song is lovely) and the track-listing for Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me leaves me excited.
What about all of you? What iPod Playlist songs are you loving? Or have you recently discovered? Any recommendations you have, toss them my way. Let’s talk.
