Playlist you should be listening to today

It’s playlist time.  Well, for me it’s always playlist time, but right now it’s time to listen to a little Fall something, something.  And since I’m currently listening to a great playlist I made on Spotify, I thought I’d share what I’m loving right now.  P.S. if you aren’t already on Spotify, go sign up right now.  My dear friend Jane Maynard made me do it (I’ve been listening to Pandora for years) and I can’t tell you how much I love it.  The basic version is free! (for the fellow cheapies like myself), and  I can make playlists and listen to entire albums on demand.  I can’t get enough Spotify in my life.  Thanks Janey!

Maybe you’ll love this playlist, maybe you won’t.  Hopefully you hear something new and interesting, and at the very least if you listen to different stuff, the neurons in your brain will fire like crazy and connect to all sorts of new neurons, and boom, you’re already smarter for having read this.

There literally are only about 2 genres of music I hate:  Western (very twang-y) and death metal.  I love everything else.  Every type of music has a mood, and I have a few of those too, so there’s always a playlist in my brain.

In fact, I think it would be pretty fantastic to have a soundtrack to my life.  My teen years would flow nicely in a photo montage to a background of Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine (not to be confused with the amazing blog of my good friend Kristen called Rage Against the Minivan), Nirvana, and Pearl Jam.  College would be all about Bare Naked Ladies, The Pixies, Sublime, MXPX, The Clash, and Stone Temple Pilots.

Do you do this?  Have mental soundtracks that represent each time period of your life?  Right now I’m listening to both Lorde and Bastille round the clock and shamefully, (sort of / not really / kind of) some Miley Cyrus sneaks in every once in a while.  By the way, if you haven’t heard the new Bastille album, Bad Blood, gooooooooooooo.  Look up their performance on Jimmy Kimmel, maybe YouTube has it, and watch your socks actually blow off.  It’s amazing.

Anyway, here’s my Fall playlist.  I listen to this on repeat all day long while I write, and scrub bathrooms and wash dishes, drive the swim team carpool, and sometimes even as I fall asleep at night.  Enjoy!
