Very Specific Pt. 9

Very Specific Pt. 9

Hello, hello and welcome back.

Today’s post is yet another of my favourite posts, a very specific post, dedicated to finding songs that belong in the niche little corners of your mind, perfect for the moments that deserve their own soundtrack.

I will admit. I tend to turn to these types of posts when I’m short on time or bigger, better ideas, but I genuinely enjoy making them, you guys seem to love them and it’s always a good time, so I don’t plan on stopping. That said, if you have any very specific moments that you believe require a playlist of their own, let me know in the comments below, and I’ll try my best to curate the perfect soundtrack for it!

Anyway, this playlist is honestly, one of my favourites. I’m sure everyone has dreamed of going on a road trip with their best friends, and whether you’ve followed through or not, the one thing we all have in common, is that the perfect music is very necessary.

Now, in this case, your playlist will probably vary depending on your personal taste as well as what your friends enjoy, but for the sake of this post, I’m going to go with what my friends and I have previously listened to in the car! Hopefully you enjoy some if not all of these tunes!

ALSO!

Huge appreciation for Fiona, in providing me with the inspiration for these visuals. It makes the playlist that bit more official, and also gives you a chance to screenshot it for later on or share it with friends!

There you go! You can find all these songs and heaps more on my Spotify, specifically my summer to end all summer and i can’t drive yet playlists, both of which are linked for you. There are heaps of songs perfect for this very specific situation, let me know what your go-to car songs are!

Hello everyone, and welcome to another installment of what is quickly becoming one of my favourite posts on my blog, Very Specific. Let’s get right into it.

This Very Specific playlist is dedicated to songs made to put in the background of travel videos. Now, whatever style you may have, I’m positive you can find something in this list. I myself have used a few of these, and my taste in travel videos has changed time and time again since they first became popular. Whether you want up-beat, high energy, in your face, or chill, cruise-y and atmospheric as heck, I’ve got you covered. When I say that, I also mean that besides this post, I quite literally have a playlist for this very specific use on my Spotify. Check it out.

Orbit (Hazey Eyes Remix) – SŸDE, Ashe

Waiting Here (Niklas Ibach Remix) – Jake Isaac, Niklas Ibach

Stay – Chet Porter, Chelsea Cutler

Waiting For You – Verzache, Swell

Feeling High – Khwezi

Fool For You – Big Z, Jackson Breit

High (Yahtzel Remix) – Peking Duk, Nicole Millar, Yahtzel

Cutting Shapes – Don Diablo

Dancing In The Moonlight – Welshy

How Hard I Try – filous, James Hersey

Sun Models – ODESZA, Madelyn Grant

Is It Too Much That I’m Asking For – Tep No

Catch & Release (Deepend Remix) – Matt Simons, Falken Van Den Aker, Bob Van Ratingen

Aloha – Møme, Merryn Jeann

Adventure Of A Lifetime (Matoma Remix) – Coldplay, Matoma

Beach House – Hockey Dad 

Heartbeat (Solidisco Remix) – Autograf

Take The “A” Train (Mint Royale Remix) – Ella Fitzgerald 

Eva – Punctual

Sleep Walk – Santo & Johnny

That’s what I have for you today! Actually, I have more. Since you’re here, and we’re on the topic…here’s my last travel video from when I went to the USA last year with my family! Tip – definitely a lot better if you watch it in HD…*cue my sister’s poor excuse for an American accent*

But yeah! Hope you enjoyed that video, even watching it now makes me want to go back, or at least get on a plane.

Hopefully you listened to a few of these and picture yourself snorkelling, or scanning your ticket at the airport gates or jumping off a cliff into a blue ocean. I am keen as a bean to get some more travel in, whether or not my current bank account permits it is yet to be seen. I’d love to hear about your travels or favourite holidays you’ve been on, let me know in the comments!

The Obsession

Hello friends! While I am currently away in Byron Bay enjoying some funky music…(post coming real soon) I thought I’d write a really short post to try and put in words, the slight obsession that I have, with making playlists.

In my eyes, playlists are a gift to myself, before they are shared with everyone. You could dive into any of my playlists, and I’d be able to tell you exactly how I feel, where I picture myself, and with whom I picture myself with, when I listen to each playlist, purely because of how specific I like to make them. I enjoy scouring Spotify and YouTube and SoundCloud, for songs that perfectly capture a single moment, and then creating a playlist of 100 more of those songs. It’s slightly addicting.

It also helps when you have an eclectic taste, and I’m meeting more and more people who are opening themselves up to listening to anything and everything, in the hopes of finding something to appreciate within it. It’s an adventure in itself, when you first hear something that you’ve never heard before, but then after some more digging and questionable listens, you find yourself creating a whole new space in your mind for this sound and this experience. It’s something completely new and something that I continue to build upon.

For example, the low-fi, Mac Demarco type sound? I never thought it would be something I could get around. But here I am now, with an entire playlist dedicated to the genre, filled with Rex Orange County, Omar Apollo, Gus Dapperton, Steve Lacy and boy pablo. Days at home, by myself, during autumn and spring, doing not a lot at all, but simply going through the day, is encompassed in this playlist.

Everyone wants a mixtape made for them, and I think playlists are exactly that, except made for moments and moods and groups of people and events. With the ridiculous amount of music there is out there, it’s always great to be able to go onto someone’s profile and take a look at the music they listen to, in the the playlists they’ve made. It can tell you a ton about a person, and when I follow someone new on Spotify, it’s one of the first things I look at, whether their someone I follow on Instagram or YouTube or one of my friends from school.

Feel free to share any of your own playlists in the comments below!
