End of Summer Playlist
With last week being the beginning of Fall I thought it would be good to post my summer playlist. This year was interesting in the since that some of the songs that are included were released a few years ago, I just now found them. Such as CSS, alt-J and Calvin Harris. Some of the best summer songs in my opinion come from Washed Out and Wild Nothing. Especially with Washed Out (FUN FACT: who’s from Columbia SC) makes me feel like summer. To be specific, Washed makes me think of a hot sticky summer night as a teenager sneaking into pools for a cool off or even just late night swimming with a slight buzz too. Actually a lot of this playlist has reflections back to my younger years. Such as Japandroids’ “Younger US”, which make me think back to my want-to-be punk rocker high school days. Going to concerts at run-down shady places that 16 years olds shouldn’t be. It also makes me think of how I had this huge outlook on life at 16, as though anything was possible and that I had the world to explore, and just even the simple excitement of be at a concert was amazing. Then I come crashing back to relazation that I’m 30 and my outlook on life is so much more in-depth on complex and not as sunny. I really miss that feeling and wish I could somehow get it back. But until then at least music has that ability of being able to take you back and make you like a teenager again.
