Not another love song, a playlist for February

February Playlist

I am a bit of a music nut. I am constantly listening to music or watching music videos. Recently, I have been listening to all these springy hits, well in my mind, they are spring-y. It may be only the end of January and I just survived a blizzard, but the Floridian in me can’t stop thinking about the sun. I miss the feel of sunshine on my skin, whenever it is bright outside and I can’t feel the sun, it irks me so!

So in order to help me out, I created this playlist of my current favorite songs. They are great songs to listen as you dance around your living room and pretend it’s warm and sunny outside. I love light pop music and all these songs seem to go together to form the perfect playlist to get you out of the winter blues. And totally dance-able too, which is the most important part.

Music is how I pump myself up before going out or when I have something nerve-wracking coming up (which is happening a lot now as I get closer to graduation). Music can instantly lift the mood and right now, I need all the pump up music I can get! Even if I can’t carry a tune, I still sing along each day to at least 10 minutes of music because it instantly lifts my mood.


Open in Spotify

Sidenote: Pandora’s Classical Goes Pop Station is my favorite study music! Perfect when you need some background noise but can’t handle words.

Girl’s Night Out Playlist

I love music. I am constantly listening to something, and often when friends spot me randomly around town, my earbuds are in and I am almost dance-walking as they refer to it. I just can’t keep still. Music can instantly lift my mood, just put on some The Mamas and The Papas and I will be singing off-key to California Dreamin’. My love of music often makes me the DJ at various gatherings because I can read the mood and crowds                                        (now if only I had Dr. Lightman’s skillz).

My latest DJ ‘gig’ was on NYE as I had girlfriends over to get ready. I had just spent 6 hours on a train from Munich and had a lot of free time to cultivate the perfect playlist for this girl’s night out playlist. It has current hits and good throwbacks (No Scrubs is always a crowd pleaser!). I love that I can make playlists on Spotify, it’s the perfect assistant. Now if only I could learn how to mix! Maybe that will be my next side project, I love learning new skillz!


Song of the Summer: “All About The Bass”

I love music videos. My friends joke that I am the only person who still watches VH1 in the morning. I wish I could say I watch the news, or even the Today show (like my mother), while getting ready but I don’t. I watch music videos and dance around my room. Sometimes, I even sing off key. It’s great because they even show the time in the corner! Music videos just perk me up in the morning, especially good ones. I love music videos that tell a story and have a plot. Or at least cute costumes!

Currently, I am obsessed with this song. It’s my song of the summer. My friends joked I could live in this music video. Apparently, it’s very me:  hair bows, & a fun pop-y beat with a tough strong undertone. I must have watched this video like 10x already. Everything about it is great! I also may have it on repeat right now. oops. What is your song of the summer?
