My Feel Good Playlist | #FeelGoodFebruary

I know I’m not the only one totally obsessed with having a playlist for every moment of their lives….right? I have a playlist for happy days, angry days, sad days, and even a playlist throwing it back to the angsty teen days (because who doesn’t love a little bit of teenage angst in their 20s…). For this month’s #FeelGoodFebruary series I spent a little time taking my favorite jams and compiling them into a playlist for you. You can find this list already set up on my #FeelGoodFebruary playlist on Spotify. For those of you without Spotify, I wrote out the songs on the playlist in the list below. Music has always meant a lot to me. If someone were to stumble upon my most listened to playlist I’d like to think they would get an unfiltered, inside look of who I am and the way I interpret the world around me. One of my favorite things about getting to know someone new is listening to the music they feel defines them…I can almost start …

Musical Musings

So, I’ve decided to make this a thing. You may have seen my last musical musings post featuring Sabrina Claudio (if not you should go ahead and click that link right there). In my mind that was going to be a one time thing, but as life would have it I have found a new musical love and I want to share it with you guys. This song is called Naked by Ella Mai. It was released in 2017 but I found it thanks again to my best bud Spotify. The lyrics alone are phenomenal, of course, but the music is so slow and purposeful. As Ella sings you can hear the natural tones of her voice, she’s not trying too hard, she’s more concerned about making sure we feel the song as she does (at least, that’s my interpretation), and it works. There are a couple of choice words in this song but I love it regardless. I’m actually pretty okay with purposeful profanity in art. To me it’s no different from nudity in …

Musical Musings

Music is my love language. It really is. My earliest memories are bookmarked by songs my father played up the stairs from his old school stereo to wake my brother and I up on Saturday mornings and music that filled my home on Sundays as my mom cleaned the house from top to bottom. The hazy memories that float around in my subconscious are made clear at the sound of a familiar melody, reassuring me of things that once were. When I meet a person who doesn’t play music in the car, or in their home, or even  someone who doesn’t sing to their children or encourage them to express their joy through dance I am genuinely startled, because for me, music is my second language. At the moment, Spotify is my best companion. I love the way it stores my music, suggests playlists and genres and I especially adore the weekly collection of new music it presents me with at the beginning of each week like clockwork. This makes it easy for a sometimes …
