Top 10: May

It’s been such a long time since I wrote one of these posts, which has the added benefit of reducing the likelihood of me mentioning any of these songs before (she says).

Apparently i’ve been listening to a bizarre mix of music lately- so enjoy that.

Also- I’m aware it’s almost the end of June, i’m a bit behind.

1. Feel It Still – Portugal. The Man

I haven’t heard an awful lot of Portugal. The Man’s music, but clearly i’ve really been loving this particular song. I always find myself singing along every time it comes on.

Mornings: A Playlist

Today I thought I’d share some of my favourite songs to listen to first thing in the morning, because I’m not really a morning person, and sometimes you just need something chill and soft to listen to when you’ve just woken up. Or maybe that’s just me because i’m lazy. Grab a cup of tea and get your spotify open, get ready to start the day with my (no doubt depressing) playlist of the day.

The March/April Playlists

Two years ago this month, I started making monthly playlists on Spotify. You can imagine what happened when I was making well over 12 playlists a year, so at the end of 2015 I decided to condense them into every two months, only getting round to truly sorting all my playlists out at the end of last year. Yes- i’m so lazy it took me an entire year to do.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to look back on my March/April playlists from the past two years to see what I was listening to, and whether my music taste has changed any!
I won’t be going through every song, because this would end up an obscenely long post, but I will link each playlist below if you want to listen to them.

Music Top 10: June

Hello hello, it’s time for another one of my favourite posts- my top 10 music monthlies. However, this month has been almost all repeats, since I didn’t start making a new playlist until the end of the month, so this month i’ve decided to choose ten songs i’ve really been loving instead so that it’s not as boring if you’ve read any of my other posts. So these aren’t necessarily my most listened to songs, but ones i’ve definitely been loving in the past few weeks. If you’re curious to see what i’ve listened to the most, you can check out my last.fm account.

So in no particular order, here’s my 10 top picks from this month!

My Top 20 Favourite Songs: Part Two

This is a continuation from Monday’s post, which if you haven’t seen yet, you should check it out.

11. Electric Feel – MGMT

I don’t feel like this song needs that much of an introduction, because I honestly don’t know anyone who doesn’t know this song already. It’s hippy as hell and i’m so into it. I remember the very first time I listened to this song (whilst writing an English essay waaaay back in 2007) and since then it’s always been in my top 25 most played songs.

My Top 20 Favourite Songs: Part One

Since I’m always talking about music on my blog I thought today I would do a ‘top 20 favourite songs’ post, because I couldn’t pick just 10 and honestly I struggled even with 20. I constantly listen to music, and I’m always discovering more favourites, but these are some that have stuck with me for years, so I felt that they deserved a mention at least somewhere on my small piece of the internet! Also, these are in no order whatsoever. So without further ado, a small portion of my favourite songs!

1. Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division

You might remember this from my three favourites post, but chances are you already know this song, because it’s an absolute classic. Not much to say about this one, except that it’s the right amount of grunge and the right amount of indie rolled into one. Great.

Music Top 10: May

As if it’s really June already. I’ve turned into that person who’s constantly surprised at the beginning of every month, but I really do feel like this year is going so quickly!

I don’t feel like i’ve actually been listening to that much new music this month, which is definitely weird for me. However, almost all of these songs are ones I haven’t spoken about before. For once.
