What Songs Am I Listening to Right Now?

16 Jul

One of the best things about summer is driving around with the windows down and some good tunes cranking.

That means you need the right mix of music.

I like to keep a playlist on my iPhone of all those songs I’m into right now, so they’re at easy access. It’s like those “State of My iPod” mixes I used to make when I burned CDs, except now those mixes are fluid and easily updated when a good new song comes along — like Frank Ocean’s “Sweet Life,” which I’ve basically had on repeat for the past few days.

In the spirit of sharing the songs I love right now, and also, because on Saturday someone actually asked me for some recommendations for new music, I present to you some of the songs on my mix of current tunes …

1. “Sweet Life” – Frank Ocean

2.Good Time” – Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen

3.Everything You Didn’t Do” – Jamie Cullum (feat. Carlos Sadness, Frank-T & Nita)

4.Runaways” – The Killers

5. Oh Love” – Green Day

6.She’s So Mean” – Matchbox 20

7.Sweeter” – Gavin DeGraw

8.One More Night” – Maroon 5

9.I’m Coming Over” – Jason Mraz

10.Settle Down” – No Doubt

11.Some Nights” – fun.

12.Talk Is Cheap” – Eric Hutchinson

13.So Good” – B.o.B.

14.No Faith in Brooklyn” – Hoodie Allen (feat. Jhameel)

15.Super Rich Kids” – Frank Ocean

16. Gold on the Ceiling” – The Black Keys

17.Wrecking Ball (live at the Apollo Theater)” – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

18.Gold” – Once Original Broadway Cast recording

19.Queen of California” – John Mayer

20.Gaucho” – Dave Matthews Band

21.The Fighter” – The Fray

22.Love Don’t Keep Me Waiting” – Glen Hansard

23.I Wish” – One Direction

24.Run” – Matt Nathanson (feat. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush)

25.Semi Charmed Call (Carly Rae Jepsen vs Third Eye Blind)” – Chambaland

25.Seven Devils” – Florence + The Machine

27.93 Million Miles” – Jason Mraz

Sometimes I listen to the mix in order, and sometimes I put it on shuffle. Either way, it’s all good.

  1. Day or Night, I Love Walking This City « Martin's Musings - August 29, 2012

    […] All kidding aside, though, I’m serious about the exercise I’m getting. I even bought myself an armband for my iPhone and keys so I didn’t have to keep them in my pocket. This morning I’m finally going to download the MapMyRun app. And I’ve created a workout playlist filled with all the Kanye, Jay-Z, Springsteen, Killers, Foo Fighters, and Moby that I can stand. (When I need a change, I just go back to my mix du jour.) […]
