Very Specific Pt. 17

Very Specific Pt. 17

Hello friends! Hope we are all well.

Today’s post is one we are all familiar with my now. It’s a very specific playlist. Today’s very specific playlist is dedicated to those particular moments when you feel like running without stopping.

I don’t know if this is just me, but there are just some times when you feel like running. It could be cos you’re stressed out, angry, upset, need to stretch your legs or feel particularly enthused by a song that’s come on shuffle. Whatever the reason, I’m almost certain you’ll be able to envision that moment with one of these, in not all, of these songs in your ears.

If you take a quick glance before listening, it’s obvious they’re all super different from each other, which is why this was a really fun playlist for me to make, because it crosses a bunch of genres and styles, yet each one fits perfectly in my opinion.

Let me know what you think!

Home - Dotan Dirty Paws - Of Monsters and Men Holding On For Life - Ellie Goulding Stuck - The Aces Candles - Daughter i - Kendrick Lamar Do You Remember - Jarryd James Venus Fly - Grimes, Janelle Monae Resolution -

On My Block – A Playlist

On My Block – A Playlist

Yo. Another Netflix show soundtrack?? I see you rolling your eyes, but university is out for the semester, and after working from 9-5:30 (or grabbing lunch with my friends/recording new music) all day, there’s nothing I want to do more than climb onto my couch and binge something on Netflix.

Clearly, I’ve been doing just that. If you didn’t catch my last playlist based on a Netflix show soundtrack, check out my selection from The Society, a show that has me so excited and amped up for the next season, it’s becoming a joke.

However, y’all can read, and judging by the title, clearly we’re not talking about The Society today. Today’s post is dedicated to my latest Netflix conquest, On My Block.

If you haven’t watched On My Block, first of all; why? And second of all; you’re missing out. I’m always down for a show that deals with people of colour, teen drama and the nuances of community, which this show has in abundance. The show centres around a group of four friends going through high school, dealing with love, violence, money and family matter, in a rough neighbourhood run by gangs. There’s a lot to grasp in this show, it’s a brilliant opportunity to pull aside the privilege blindfold and really open your eyes to realities of life for some communities.

With all of that in mind, I truly believe one of the show’s strongest assets, is it’s soundtrack. It captures the essence of the show so perfectly, and I found myself pausing several times or rewinding to fully take in each scene and the way the music always worked perfectly. For this show, a standout for me was Parachute, by AM!R, which I paused the show to search for immediately. Note that I’m also partial to my fair share of hip-hop, rap and Latin music, which this show has plenty of.

So, here’s my playlist of favourite songs from On My Block.

Sorrows – BLESSED
Swang N Bang – Kirko Bangz
Eye for an Eye – SiDizen King, The Strike
One and Only – BLESSED
I’m Your Puppet – James & Bobby Purify
Bailazo – Bang Data
Electric – Alina Baraz, Khalid
Ratatá – Niña Dioz
NATURALLY – Amir Obe
BOOGIE – BROCKHAMPTON
Buscando Un Bandido – Sicko Soldado
Crumbs – Jordan Dennis
Devil’s Whisper – Raury
La Noche – Joe Arroyo, La Verdad
Cherry Hill – Russ 
Insecure – Brent Faiyaz
Sweetest Life – KWAYE

Let me know if you’ve watched the show or plan to watch it – I’d love to chat about it with some of you guys in the comments!

Very Specific Pt. 16

Very Specific Pt. 16

Hello, hello!

Today’s post is one I haven’t done in a hot minute, but it’s a very specific playlist, a playlist of songs that are perfect for listening to by yourself on a late night drive.

I don’t know why, but the last few weeks I’ve found myself driving back home by myself, late at night, whether it’s coming home from a concert, after a particularly late netball game or after dropping a friend home. That too, winter’s well and truly here, meaning it’s getting darker by 5:30 every day.

A situation that would have used to make me pretty nervous, I now find it super relaxing, and it’s one of the most calming things I find myself doing. Trust me, it’s great. I sound like I’m straight out of a YA novel, but there’s this road that I’m constantly driving down, and it’s super long and open, a couple of turns here and there, but it’s so satisfying driving that road late at night.

So with all of that rambling, here’s a very specific playlist, one for driving home by yourself, late at night.

I really loved creating this playlist, maybe cos of how deep in this mood I am??? Late night drives are not celebrated enough outside of Tumblr. Therapeutic, I tell you. Let me know if you listen to any of these songs!

The Society – A Playlist

The Society – A Playlist

So. The Society happened, and it took over a good two days of my life. Can’t say I regret any of it, but now I’m not sure what to do with myself until the next season comes out. If the next season comes out.

So naturally, I did what I do best, and staked out all the songs that I shazaam-ed during my binge, to curate a playlist for you all. The music in this show is incredible. I’m definitely biased because of how much I loved this show, but it takes a lot for me to stop watching, rewind and try and shazaam a song. I even googled lyrics at one point.

Whoever chose the music for this song did an excellent job at finding the perfect songs for each moment. There are some incredible indie throwbacks, absolute soul belters that come out of nowhere, and that specific type of atmospheric song that just injects so much emotion into any scene. The Maze by the Manchester Orchestra was a huge standout for me. It’s such an uplifting moment within the show, and the music just partners with it perfectly, on God, I nearly started crying.

But anyway, here’s the playlist.

Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode
Just Like Heaven – The Cure
The Maze – Manchester Orchestra 
bury a friend – Billie Eilish
I Know What Boys Like – The Waitresses
Byegone – Volcano Choir
Up All Night – The Boomtown Rats
Baby, Baby, Baby – Aretha Franklin
Future Club – Perturbator
Let You In – Pete Muller, Melissa Soltero
Go To Town – Doja Cat
Empire Of Our Own – RAIGN
In A Blackout – Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Melt With You – Modern English

I’d love to know if any of you guys have watched The Society. I’d really appreciate having someone else to talk to and obsess with. Let me know if you listen to any of the songs in the playlist. It could be just me who found this soundtrack incredible, but if not, let me know in the comments!

*UPDATED* Playlist For Death

*UPDATED* Playlist For Death

Hello, hello!

Welcome back to another post. If this title seems familiar to you, it’s because way back I posted the original blog post, A Playlist For Death, right at the start of last year.

If you didn’t catch that post or you’ve only joined us recently, make sure you have a read so you know what to expect further down the road.

But anyway. Very little has changed in regard to my attitude towards this list. Of course, the reason for this *update* is that since it’s been an entire year since the original post, quite a few songs have been added and removed from these playlists, so there are new tunes to share! As much as I love the music on these playlists, I love the use of this playlist a little less. I mean, find me someone who is jumping for joy and absolutely rearing to go every single day before heading to the gym.

Seriously. Find them, I need to know, how??

I’m not saying I absolutely hate working out because that’s not really the case at all, I’m just saying I absolutely hate working out when I’ve forgotten my headphones and have to listen to the music that’s played at my gym.

As per with the original post, I’m gonna break this up into two sections, one for absolute death and personal torture (cardio) and one for weight training. Similarly, I’ve pulled these from two of my Spotify playlists, inhaler and pump respectively, of which I definitely use both whenever I’m at the gym.

inhaler (CARDIO)
Get Me Bodied – Beyonce
Stuck – The Aces
Watch Me – Jaden Smith
Changa – Pnau
Street Punks On A Freight Train – Bryce Vine
Body – Loud Luxury
Heartbeat – Childish Gambino
Forever & Ever More – Nothing But Thieves
Toxic – Eden Prince
breathin – Ariana Grande
Just Friends – Hayden James
Leave It To Me – Bakers Eddy
Show You Love – Kato
Do It Like A Dude – Jessie J
Jackie Chan – Tiesto
Invincible – Twelve Foot Ninja
Feel It Still (ZHU Remix) – Portugal. The Man
Aubrey – Running Touch
Losing It – FISHER
Chelsea Dagger – The Fratellis

pump (WEIGHT)
Barbie Tingz – Nicki Minaj
Walk It Talk It – Migos
Motiv8 – J. Cole
PICK IT UP – Famous Dex, A$AP Rocky
Bartier Cardi – Cardi B
My Hands – Running Touch
Wanna Be Startin Somethin – Michael Jackson
SWEET – BROCKHAMPTON

Adored – LAUREL
We The People… – A Tribe Called Quest
La Di Da – Lennon Stella
destinado a morir – Miguel
Power Over Me – Dermot Kennedy
16 Shots – Stefflon Don
Who R U? – Anderson. Paak
Let’s Begin – Jon Bellion, Roc Marciano, RZA, B. Keys, Travis Mendes
Blind Eye – Ren, Sam Tompkins
Flames – David Guetta, Sia
A Tale of 2 Citiez – J.Cole
