Sunday Playlist 02/25/2018

This week’s playlist is another collection of sweet songs about love. I know that I’ve posted a few playlists with this theme but that is because it resonates with me. This time around, I’ve tried to mix the genres up significantly more than usual. You’ll find country, electronic, reggae and at least one song with a bit of a Bee Gees vibe to it.
Human beings are social creatures that need each other. Over time, we make numerous connections with each other. That connection can be for a brief moment as well as a lifelong bond. Whatever the case, human beings crave connection. For many the closest bond is that of a lifelong lover.

  1. You Love by Jai Lynn from Jai Lynn EP [USA]
  2. Beautiful Was the Time by Jarek Laaser from Angel of Heart EP [DEU]
  3. Interlude by Joe Playo from Summer of Joe [USA]
  4. Blind Love by The Woods [ITA]
  5. Sweet by Tamara Laurel from Lightning EP [USA]
  6. Sweeter Love by Bryan Art from Bryan Art (album) [JAM]
  7. All My life by Bryyn from Crossing State Lines (album) [USA]
  8. I’ll Wait by Jonathan Dimmel from The Worst and the Best (album) [USA]
  9. Your Sweet Love by Finn Anderson from Oceanic EP [GBR]
  10. Cover Me (album version) by David Krystal from She Sings to Me (album) [CAN]

Sunday Playlist 07/30/2017

Sorry for not posting last week. In any case, I have a new playlist for you guys this week. This time around, I’ve created a mix of songs that fit easily into the Adult Contemporary and Easy Listening categories. I decided on this selection because I wanted something a bit more relaxing. Both of these genres also tend to be more reflective rather than reactionary, something that seems absent in a time where we are bombarded by a vast array of information and misinformation on a perpetual basis.
How do we navigate all of this information and therefore determine the validity of the information being put before us? The same can be said for our numerous connections online. With so many voices, how do we determine what the motives of their various status updates and shared content? Herein lies the focus on reflection and evaluation, which requires time and effort to unravel. How do we also juggle evaluation of information, personal time, career and our interpersonal relationships?

  1. Parachute by Mirva from One [AUS]
  2. Into the Dream by David Krystal from She Sings For Me [CAN]
  3. Too Young by Snowflake & Loveshadow from Open in the Garden [USA]
  4. Colors by Entheos from Entheos [USA]
  5. Hitchcock by Finn Anderson from Uncharted Lands EP [GBR]
  6. Bye Bye Bluebird by Barefoot McCoy from Bye Bye Bluebird [USA]
  7. You Give by Emily Richards from You Give [USA]
  8. One Two Three by Eve [KAZ]
  9. Code 4 by The Gasoline Brothers from Hm! [NLD]
  10. Convelesence by Azwel from From Now On [USA]

Sunday Playlist 03/12/2017

I am back with this week’s playlist. This time around, the theme is “smooth love”. I have attempted to bring together songs from different genres that emulate the feel of a live performance at the jazz club, the cafe and places where you can listen to music for the pure joy of it. Whilst you might feel compelled to get up and dance, you can just as easily sit down and drink in the atmosphere as the band performs.

  1. Thinking of You by Lawrence Beamen [USA]
  2. Wanna See You by Niki J Crawford from The Genesis Block EP [USA]
  3. Mechanism by Anitek from Anitek Instrumentals Vol.2 [USA]
  4. Worst Kind of Perfect (Remastered) by Ben Hammond from [Reasonably] Honest [USA]
  5. It’s the Right Time by Büffel from First Touch [Germany]
  6. Baby Go by Eve [Kazakhstan]
  7. Say You Love Me by David Krystal from View From The Inside [Canada]
  8. Amor Y Amor from Estudiante from Regresar [Cuba]
  9. Possibilities by Jasmine Jordan from Time Travel EP [USA]
  10. Devotion by Neon Niteclub from The Dream Machine [USA]
