You guys, I have so few weekends left to myself until I’m traveling on the road for work so this weekend is one that I’m looking forward to having ALL TO MYSELF! Last night, we raged pretty hard for Manan’s birthday so for now I’m just using this as an excuse for me to be not capable of doing anything else Saturday/Sunday except for catching up on work and spending Q. time with Yow Yow! The other day, I had this craving to listen to all of my favorite early John Mayer albums. I’d forgotten just how good they were. #blessed that Kevin introduced me to JM so long ago when I was just 9 years old and listening to Inside Wants Out for the first time. It was so good that we’re going to do the same thing this weekend that we did earlier in the week and listen to it over and over again. I wish we could go back to getting music like this from him. Today, we’re sharing Room For Squares because it’s one of the few albums in which I love every single track. There are very few albums in the world that do that for me.
We definitely have shared the original song on Yow Yow! before, but this remix is just so good. I found it on Spotify’s Discover Weekly Playlist this morning and with how things have been going with our relationship, I really didn’t have high hopes. This, however, did not disappoint and I’ve already listened to it 3 times today. I’m also very close to saying that I prefer this over the original…maybe we just said it…!
I hope you guys will like this! Tonight’s weekend soundtrack is a very sweet throwback to my days in college and a nice memory that I like to think of as the “calm before my storm.” We’re having a moment now where we are feeling similar feelings as we reach the end of the summer and I prepare for a busy travel season and being on the road. It’s funny, when I was younger and thought that I was going to be working in music, when I referred to me being on the road in the future, I thought I would be on a tour. Instead when I say that same line now, I’m referring to a different kind of tour that I never really imagined for myself.
It’s interesting that I always planned my entire life out like it was a map and that each step was a destination point. The reality actually is that we’re taking so many bathroom stops along the way.
Happy listening y’all!
We’re having a Justin Bieber moment right now. Remember when this album first came out and we were all amazed at how good his songs were? Well, they’re still that good I guess.
Some days, I get really tired of the music that I’m currently listening to. The good thing about making a playlist for every season is that you always have it and you can go back to it. Today, we’re revisiting our Fall ’11 – Winter ’12 playlist (back when we were still in college!) and I came across this gem right here that we’re reviving. I can’t believe I haven’t actually shared this before – missed opportunity for sure.
It’s just one of those things where we’re not exactly sure what it is, but we still love it anyways. I’ve been waking up to this song for the last week and a half or so and only just added it to my Spotify playlists tonight. For the past few summers, my coworker and I are always trying to figure out what the song of the summer is going to be. I thought it was going to be “One Dance,” but this jam feels like a better fit maybe?
Which do we prefer… Tory or Drake?!
We call this the baby maker game changer because Miguel is one of our all-time favorite singers and his lyrics are so smooth and so very steamy. This track, in particular, is just everything you’ve ever wanted in a hook-up track. We got you. It’s a little different to be picking this song on a Sunday at 8AM, but we’ve been saving this one for ya!
So here’s the thing, when I first heard Selena Gomez’s single “Kill Em With Kindness,” I was pretty much over it. I couldn’t get into it, I didn’t want to listen to it on the radio, I never wanted to hear the song if it were up to me. But when I heard that River Tiber decided to remix it and slow it down a bit, I thought – maybeeeeee I can give this a try. Sure enough, it felt like a completely different song – one that I would actually like to listen to on the reg. I can’t embed it here, but you can listen to it over at The Fader.
