Very Specific Pt. 16

Hello, hello!

Today’s post is one I haven’t done in a hot minute, but it’s a very specific playlist, a playlist of songs that are perfect for listening to by yourself on a late night drive.

I don’t know why, but the last few weeks I’ve found myself driving back home by myself, late at night, whether it’s coming home from a concert, after a particularly late netball game or after dropping a friend home. That too, winter’s well and truly here, meaning it’s getting darker by 5:30 every day.

A situation that would have used to make me pretty nervous, I now find it super relaxing, and it’s one of the most calming things I find myself doing. Trust me, it’s great. I sound like I’m straight out of a YA novel, but there’s this road that I’m constantly driving down, and it’s super long and open, a couple of turns here and there, but it’s so satisfying driving that road late at night.

So with all of that rambling, here’s a very specific playlist, one for driving home by yourself, late at night.

I really loved creating this playlist, maybe cos of how deep in this mood I am??? Late night drives are not celebrated enough outside of Tumblr. Therapeutic, I tell you. Let me know if you listen to any of these songs!

Very Specific Pt. 15

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve all been well. Welcome back to another very specific post, one of my favourites to share with you all!

I finally got my license this year, meaning I’m able to drive on my own now, and one of the things I’ve done once and once only, yet am still exciting to do more of, is driving to the beach to just park and listen to music. It sounds way deeper than it is, but it was a fantastic hour of my life.

By all means, maybe don’t play it though your car the whole time, like watch out for the battery, but if you find yourself with a moment at the beach, here’s a playlist of songs, specifically made to listen to in your car on the beach.

Skeletons – Yeah Yeah Yeah
Water On The Bridge – Chelsea Cutler
Home – Dotan
One More Time – Jon Bellion
Watch – billie eilish
Sincerity Is Scary – The 1975
Smoke Too Much – JOY.
Easily – Bruno Major
Feels Like Summer – Childish Gambino
Who Hurt You? – Daniel Caesar
Camped – RINI
comethru – Jeremy Zucker
Sunday Vibes – Masego, Medasin
Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland) – Nai Palm
Adult Swim – Jon Bellion, Tuamie
Jungle – Tash Sultana
Red House – Jimi Hendrix
Once – Maren Morris

Let me know what you thought of this list! I’d love to know if you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments!

Very Specific Pt. 13

Hello everyone!

Hope you are well and doing good, welcome back to another blog post where I try and be relate-able, only somewhat succeeding.

Today’s post is another very specific post. I love making and curating these posts, you guys seem to be a fan of them, so hopefully we all get something out of this. I’m all about listening to sad songs when you’re already sad to just…enhance the sad, because surely that’s something we all do, but sometimes you don’t have time and need to pep up real quick. For example, having a small mental breakdown about a university deadline that you knew about for weeks, crying a lil bit, but realising that you don’t actually have time to cry and need to get work done.

I definitely have found myself in that situation several times this year, so I’m probably your best source for pepping yourself up through some good tunes.

So this playlist is a playlist of songs to cheer you up. 

 

Burnin Up - Jonas BrotherHard Times - ParamoreI'll Be There For You - The RembrandtsDog Days Are Over - Florence + The MachineI Say A Little Prayer - Aretha FranklinRosanna - WeezerCordu

 

There you go! Hopefully you had a listen to some of those song, hopefully you felt a bit better if you weren’t already feeling great, and hopefully you’ve got some more songs to add to your artillery if you’re ever feeling down.

Very Specific Pt. 7

Hello hello!

I haven’t done one of these posts in a hot minute, and like I said in my last post, I’m working on a post at the moment that requires a couple days work, so in the meantime I thought I’d share another very specific playlist with you all!

This selection of music is one of my favourites so far. It isn’t as intense as car chases or post apocalyptic worlds, but it’s equally as powerful, and it’s a selection made for listening to while looking out the window.

I find them twice as effective if it’s raining or it’s very early in the morning and you’re probably the only one on Earth awake.

Just saying.

These are some of my personal favourites, hope you enjoy some of them!

 

The Night We Met – Lord Huron
His Eye On The Sparrow – Tanya Blount, Lauryn Hill
Little Wonders – Rob Thomas
Army – Ellie Goulding
Nylon – Kllo
Red Dust – James Vincent McMorrow
Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) – Hillsong United
My Happiness – Powderfinger
Blinded By Your Grace, Pt. 1 – Stormzy
From Eden – Hozier
Too Much Ask – Niall Horan
In Dreams – Ben Howard
The Worst – Jhene Aiko
Love On The Brain – Rihanna
Runaway – AURORA
Don’t Know Why – Norah Jones
INTERMISSION: fLoWer – ZAYN
Reeling – Corey Harper
Sorry – Aquilo
Bella – Angus & Julia Stone

Let me know if you enjoy any of these!
