Last Five

Songs I downloaded on iTunes.

  1. Downtown by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis feat. Eric Nally, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, and Grandmaster Caz. You’re going to need to listen to this a good five times to appreciate it correctly. There are a lot of sections, and a lot of contributors, but the results are pretty fantastic. And watch the video too, it’s hilarious! I heart Macklemore.
  2. What do you Mean? by Justin Bieber. I kind of like Bieber’s new aesthetic. This is the second song I couldn’t live without!
  3. The Hills by The Weeknd. The music in this song sounds like the score of a horror film, and the lyrics are pretty perverted. I’m not sure how, but I’m kind of obsessed with it. It’s definitely walking the line very well.
  4. Bad Blood by Taylor Swift. I finally caved on this one. T Swift is the current Queen of Pop and I’m not going to fight it. It’s on the workout mix for sure. You need to watch the video if you haven’t seen it yet.
  5. Baby I by Ariana Grande. I’ve been having kind of an Ariana Grande moment lately. This song sounds eerily like an old school Ashanti song, but it’s also very 90’s Mariah, which is ok with me.

Five Things

I’ve downloaded on iTunes in the last month.

1. This Kiss by Carly Rae Jepsen

This song is upbeat, fun, and extremely catchy.  Imagine that, Carly Rae Jepsen coming up with a cathy tune…

2. Feel Again by OneRepublic

This song caught me by surprise.  It’s got just of rhythmic pulsing quality.  I love the positive nature of the lyrics.  It always motivates me when I’m out for a run!

3. Beauty and a Beat by Justin Bieber feat. Nicki Minaj

The Biebs is hit and miss with me, but if he pairs up with Nicki Minaj, I’m in.  This is another fun song that keeps my workout mix fresh.

4. Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding is a little more alternative than my typical playlist, but I happen to love every single she puts outs.  It’s just so catchy but soothing at the same time.

5. Sail by AWOLNATION

I actually heard this song in my pilates class the other day.  I immediately googled it with the lyrics I remembered and bought it.  It definitely adds a little intensity to my playlist.

Usually I download a lot more rap and hip hop, but recently I’ve really been digging some of these songs like Feel Again, Anything Could Happen, and Sail that have a whole different vibe to them.  I’m not 100% sure what genre it would be.  I guess alternative on the verge of a euro techno kind of thing.  Whatever it is, these are my jams at the moment.

PS- I’ve been hanging out in PA during my winter break from school.  I’m basically living among hundreds of deer, many of whom are not shy at all about having breakfast in our back yard as I drink my morning smoothie in the kitchen.  My view from the kitchen window every morning:by all means, help yourself
