This week is a little jam-packed with school-related things (final week! and then next week, I start anatomy & physiology, so …) so I’m just going to post what I’ll be listening to while I try to survive the last few days of microbiology.

So two weeks ago I did kind of an upbeat, power-walk sort of playlist, so I wanted to go in the opposite direction this time: just ambling down the way and enjoying the chill of the air. I actually took one of those walks a few days ago, giving myself a bit of a breather, and I felt just as good as when I came back from a strenuous workout. I guess I just needed some movement. But anyway, enjoy!
1 – “ICARUS” BY FANA HUES
2 – “WE DANCED MOVEMENT I” BY CRIS DERKSEN
3 – “DUVET” BY BoA
4 – “CAROLINE” BY ARLO PARKS
5 – “NADA” BY LIDO PIMIENTA FT LI SAUMET
6 – “ONE SUNDAY MORNING” BY WILCO
7 – “SOUND AND COLOR” BY ALABAMA SHAKES
8 – “GOLDEN HOUR” BY KACEY MUSGRAVES
9 – “BABY LOVE CHILD” BY PIZZICATO FIVE
10 – “HAWTHORNE” BY ALEX BANIN
I can’t run anymore because my knees are basically shot, but I still like to get out and walk or hike, usually with this dork in tow:
His name is Nelson, and he’s one of my sister’s two rescue dogs. And he is a dork.
Anyway, now that it’s colder, there are not nearly the large numbers of people flocking to the park like there were during the summer and early fall, so in addition to making social distancing easier, I don’t have to worry about above-mentioned dork getting too excited about every dog he sees. Which also means that I can go for longer walks and plan longer playlists, one of which I will list below for your enjoyment:
1 – “HEAVY CROSS” BY GOSSIP
2 – “GOTTA GET INTO SOMETHING” BY GARY CLARK JR.
3 – “GREEN EYES & A HEART OF GOLD” BY THE LONE BELLLOW
4 – “HEY, MAN!” BY NELLY FURTADO
5 – “BAMBOO BANGA” BY M.I.A.
6 – “JUST LIKE MY HEART” BY FAULT LINES
7 – “EASY LOVE” BY MSTRKRFT
8 – “BRIGHTEST STAR” BY LILLY HIATT
9 – “FAITH” BY GALANTIS FT DOLLY PARTON & MR PROBZ
10 – “TURNTABLES” BY JANELLE MONAE
NOTE: I am currently working on the next “on rotation …” which is going to feature some amazing black country artists. I just want to make sure that I do the post justice, because dammit, I don’t wanna just cram like I used to do back when I had a big test in college … which is to say, I don’t want to half-ass this. So I’m going with what was already scheduled to be posted today:
I’m going to do something a wee bit different with this one because, you know what, I can; it’ll be July 4th in three days, so I’m gonna flex my freedom muscles and do what I want. Today is gonna be about the albums I couldn’t stop listening to during high school. I can honestly say that I am in no way ashamed of any of these, and you might actually see some repeat artists from some of my previous posts. That just shows you how much I love them.Continue reading on rotation
So since I’m doing this whole Friends challenge thing this month, I’m going to continue my previous trend of 90s music, but for today? Well, we’re gonna look at 90s country, which … well, it was a mixed bag, I will admit. Granted, we hadn’t gone full bro-country yet, which may be why I’m fond of this era, but it does have a tinge of good ol’ boy sexism. But that discussion is for another time. Today? Today, we salute country music from the 90s.Continue reading on rotation
As I promised last week – I guess I’m doing on rotation … on Wednesdays now? – I going with some hidden gems, or as I like to call them, deep cuts from the days of my youth. Some of these you may remember, while others may be just as obscure as they were then. But at least I know that I’m consistent in my eclectic music taste?Continue reading on rotation
When people reminisce about the music from their youth, it’s usually from their high school years, and while 1999 – 2002 was a fairly formative era for me, I mean … I just don’t have that nostalgia. Sure, I bop around to “Hot in Herre” by Nelly “No One Knows” by Queens of the Stone Age, but it’s not my feel good music. That? Oh, that goes to the soundtrack of my early middle school years.
And dang, I’m gonna have to do a Part II and maybe even Part III to this on rotation … The mid-90s had such great music, and I’m having a blast finding old gems. You know what? That’s gonna be the next on rotation … Old Hidden Gems.
Until next time!
It’s been so long since I’ve done one of these! I mean, it’s been so long since I’ve done anything on this blog, actually, so that makes sense. But! Like everything in my and your lives right now, this post is corona-related. I’m working from home, as I said in my last post, and since tomorrow is Monday, aka start of the work week, I thought I’d share what songs I play while I do my job. You know when I’m not watching MST3K or listening to true crime podcasts …Continue reading on rotation
