Monsoon Playlist

A roundup of the monsoon beauties before I these songs disappear into the vortex of my brain.

I love all the shades of a relationship they managed to capture in this one song with the one common motif of travelling in the underground. I am a fan of public transport and I have so many stories related to it. It is a modern cultural experience in itself. To see it being used like this was nothing short of magic to me. 🙂

I have loved Angus and Julia Stone since ‘Big Jet Plane’. Their dreamy music is always so soothing and this video is Vacation goals AF! 😉

I stumbled upon Roo Panes accidentally and the only question I have is why didn’t I not know him earlier? It’s like I have found Damien Rice from the parallel universe!

This one is just to add the much needed color and peppiness to the sobriety that might have been induced by all the indie songs above. XD

“I’d rather dance than talk with you”. Enough said. 🙂

Summer Playlist

Even though I don’t like beaches so much, I love the part where you sit on the sand and look at the sunset and feel the cool breeze brushing your skin. For some reason, this is that one song which reminds me of the beaches. Maybe because I discovered it on my trip to Goa or maybe it really is a beach baby kinda song.

You cannot do summer better than they do summer in this beautiful song by ‘The Bird and the Bees’. It’s their love for L.A. and I am a sucker for songs written for cities and if the city is to be as dreamy as this one, what can be better!?

From Chinese beats to Indian, the transformation just blew me away. Glass animals doing their usual thing in this one – being amazing that is.

Discovered the next one on Apple Music owing to my addiction to chill playlists. There is nothing better than cuddling up with a book and a cold beverage, sunlight filtering through the curtains with music like this playing in the background.

A little too angsty and rushed but I still love it since I have spent my afternoons binge watching this show.

Bruno Mars is the definition of easy listening combined with pep and upbeat-ness(?). His new song, for which the video is also great btw, is the new waiting-for-monsoon-but-loving-the-lazy-summers score!

This one because one Chainsmokers song is a must for the list and the concept of a waterbed was so new to me! Please don’t watch the video, it sucks. Posting the audio here!

It’s in the name and how can I possibly not include this weird and beautiful song I found on the treasure that is ‘TheSoundYouNeed’.

 

Ultimate Indie Playlist Part 1

A must for all Indie Lovers. Indie is perhaps my favourite genre and I cannot figure out the reason for it but I will tell you when I know. There are some things which are loved without any reason, perhaps. 🙂

Bombay Bicycle Club – You already know
. . . said love was painted gold
like all things growing old
the paint peels and slowly falls
you already know.

The Perishers – Nothing Like You and I
We spent some time
Together walking,
Spent some time just talking
About who we were.

You held my hand so
Very tightly,
And told me what we
Could be dreaming of.

The Dreamer – The tallest man on Earth
And i’m just a shadow of your thoughts in me
but sun is setting, shadows growing.
A long cast figure will turn into night,
it’s like nothing in this world ever sleeps.

Dillon – Thirteen Thirtyfive
I go running with a heart on fire.

 Princess Chelsea – The Cigarette Duet
It’s just a cigarette and it harms your pretty lungs
Well it’s only twice a week so there’s not much of a chance
It’s just a cigarette it’ll soon be only ten
Honey, can’t you trust me? When I want to stop, I can

Playlist for the Week

I finally got the time to listen to some music after a long long time since I was relatively free because of my injured toe. So here is the list of the songs I am trippin’ on this week! Yaay! *drumroll*

  1. How Deep is Your Love? by Calvin Harris & Disciples – The protagonist is soooo hot! The comments on the official video are hilarious but I think the excessive hair touching makes sense. Go see the video to figure.
  2. Shut up and Dance by Walk the Moon – Such an adorable video, I was smiling all the while!
  3. Beautiful Boyz by CocoRosie – One of my favourite genres. I accidentally came across it in the suggestions and it’s really relaxing.
  4. Omen by Disclosure ft. Sam Smith – Another one that made it to my favourites after being addicted to Latch, also one of the background dancers looks like my classmate.
  5. Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars ft. Mark Ronson – Who cannot love this song. It is so Michael Jackson-ish. Why is Mark Ronson even there?
  6. Here by Alessia Cara – Because the lyrics go like:
    “I’m sorry if I seem uninterested
    Or I’m not listenin’ or I’m indifferent
    Truly, I ain’t got no business here
    But since my friends are here
    I just came to kick it but really
    I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
    With people who don’t even care about my well-being
    I don’t dance, don’t ask, I don’t need a boyfriend
    So you can go back, please enjoy your party
    I’ll be here, somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana
    With this boy who’s hollering I can hardly hear…”
  7. Outside by Calvin Harris ft Ellie Goulding – After their last collaboration, this isn’t that good but if the comparison is left aside, it is worth listening!
