My Summer, In Songs

I listen to a lot of music. Zoning out and listening to music is one of the few times I can really turn my mind off and concentrate on something other than what's on my to-do list or the thoughts in my head. It's pretty much my meditation. If I don't make time to sit and stare into space with music in my ears on a regular basis, I start to get anxious and cranky... like, more than usual.

The other day, I decided The Most Important Thing was to make a play list of the songs I've been obsessing over this summer. Some of these songs make me sad and introspective. A few of them make me happy and want to spaz around (some people may call it "dancing"). A couple of them are just weird and fun. Most of them aren't new songs, even to me, but they've been recently rediscovered and have basically been my life source this summer, and many will continue to be my all-time favorite musics for my ears and soul.

Here they are, in very particular order:

  1. Some Nights - Fun.
  2. Royal Blue - Cold War Kids
  3. Glowing - Nikki Williams
  4. 1901 - Phoenix
  5. Titanium - David Guetta feat. Sia
  6. Dirty Paws - Of Monsters and Men
  7. Baby Finn Song - From the TV show Adventure Time
  8. City With No Children - Arcade Fire
  9. Cups (When I'm Gone) - Anna Kendrick
  10. Girl Sailor - The Shins
  11. Houdini - Foster the People (I've also been a little obsessed with the video)
  12. We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus*
  13. The Streets - Foxy Shazam
*I find Miley's 20-year-old-insanely-rich-white-girl antics wildly entertaining and I don't want to hear any sass, but feel free to judge me. I probably deserve it.

Honorable Mentions, but didn't make sense on the list:

All The Rowboats - Regina Spektor (and basically the entirety of her album What We Saw From the Cheap Seats), Draw a Crowd - Ben Folds, For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless in Ypsilanti - Sufjan Stevens (an all-time-forever favorite music for my soul)

So, what are you listening to? I'm always looking for new music to obsess over and I'm down for listening to just about anything.
