2014 Soundtrack

2014 Soundtrack

As always the end of the year makes me pensive and nothing evokes wandering thoughts more than a wandering playlist. Certain songs will always evoke specific moments in my life. A song can evoke a flashback to when I first heard it, when it really resonated with a momentous life event, or surface a memory from an angsty time when I had a certain song on repeat.

A big shout out to my music Guru Plums! Check out her AWESOME blog HERE if you want to know what will be on the radio a year and half from now. Half of these songs were her recs.

Enjoy my 2014 Rewind Playlist (Check out this link to hear it all on Soundcloud):

  • Do it Again – Robyn & Ryksopp
    • Appropriately on repeat all day long when starting my new job. Gay icon anthem at the seemingly gay mecca of ad agencies. I couldn’t be happier of my move to gay mecca.
  • Texas – Magic Man
    • Evoking an innate positive exuberance that can’t help you to smile. The perfect morning run song.
  • Waste of Time – MØ
    • When they aren’t paying attention to you? This is the perfect hairflip song.
  • Hard Time – Seinabo Sey
    • As I was battling snow on a Peruvian mountain, I was gritting my teeth and listening to this song to get me through.
  • My Silver Lining – First Aid Kit
    • “I’m don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living, too fast too slow.” My mantra for the year.
  • Victor – Prinze George
    • The angst in this song is on point.
  • Young & Beautiful – Lana Del Rey (Cedric Gervais Remix)
    • My love song with New York City. Most listened to song this year on my iPod.
  • Empire – Shakira
    • Any power balad where a betch is running around in a wedding dress in a field, away from a chapel, is fine by me.
  • Riptide – Vance Joy (FlicFlac Edit)
    • Sometimes a remix is so much better than the original. That’s the case with this gem of a find.
  • Pressure – Nadia Ali, Starkillers & Alex Kenji (Alesso Edit)
    • My Half-Marathon pump up song. A testament to the fact that my music taste pendulum has officially shifted to into the realm of house… like mostly everyone else in our generation.
  • Comeback – Ella Eyre
    • The biggest hairflip song of the year.
  • Running for Cover – Ivan & Alyosha
    • The perfect song to let your mind wander when crossing the Moroccan dessert. And falling sleep into Faye’s lap.
  • You’re not the One – Sky Ferreira (Blood Diamonds Remix)
    • I’ll admit it. This song resonates with my life. No more of this in 2015 but for now sing it betch, he’s not the one.
  • Runaway – Galantis
    • This was on repeat during T-giving. Not sure what the undertones say there.
  • Walk this Way – MØ (Lido Remix)
    • One more MØ song, my artist of the year – Danish, Fabulous, and doesn’t give two shits what you think. Good workout song when trying to empower yourself for the day ahead.
  • Don’t Save Me – Haim
    • My anthem going into the New Year. Essentially: Say you will save me. But I want it all, if you can’t hold on and you’re dumb betch then don’t save me.
