Monthly Music: July 2014
Time for another edition of Monthly Music. This time, after Tiffany made a suggestion, I decided to upload my playlist to 8tracks so you can listen to it for free in your browser. I was going to try 8tracks before I used Spotify, but now I’ve realised Spotify was not the best way to share playlists.
Anyway, this playlist, titled ebullient, contains my favourite songs of the month. There are a few indie rock hits, some hits from the 2000s which a lot of you may recognise (sorry, I didn’t include Teenage Dirtbag but just imagine it’s there!), and some classic hits from the 70s and 80s. There are a few amusing tracks in there, so be sure to listen to some of the lyrics as well.
ebullient – a playlist for July 2014
- Struggle Street by Ball Park Music
- It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by R.E.M.
- Sneakers by Velociraptor
- Yours Truly, 2095 by Electric Light Orchestra
- Word Crimes by “Weird Al” Yankovic
- Text Me in the Morning by Neon Trees
- Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me For Me) by Blessid Union of Souls
- Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader
- The Writing’s On the Wall by OK Go
- Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!
- Please Stay by Kylie Minogue
- Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye
I am definitely a big fan of Weird Al’s new tracks, and Word Crimes tops it as pure genius. Again, hear the lyrics in that one. The lyrics in Text Me in the Morning also amuse me a little. I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t listen to Neon Trees earlier.
Anything that sounds remotely 70s or 80s probably is, with the exception of Velociraptor. They do such a great job playing that retro sound, you might not even pick up that they’re an indie rock band from Brisbane (and one of my favourites too).
As I mentioned, you will probably enjoy the hits from the 2000s if you’re around my age or were born in the late 80s/early 90s. Hope you like this mix, and let me know what your favourite is.
Happy listening! :)
