In Cahoots! Episode 2 Show Notes

Hello everyone!

The second episode of the In Cahoots! with @thegingerintrovert is now live! Today I’m talking about the new music I’ve been listening to and loving, including Aly & AJ, Clairo, Lana Del Rey, and new Charlie’s Angels collab with Lana, Ariana Grande, and Miley Cyrus.

However, my main topic of discussion is Taylor Swift’s new album, Lover, which made me fall in love with her music all over again. I review the album track-by-track, and share all of my thoughts about this amazing album!

As always, I made a playlist for this episode with all of my favorite songs from the artists I discuss in this episode.

Summer 2018 Workout Playlist!

Hello everyone!

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know how much I love making playlists. I mean, who doesn’t love a good playlist, though? I’ve made playlists for the last few summers, just because I love having them for when I run. They’re usually made up of the songs that I’m obsessed with at the moment, and this year is no different! But ya girl loves a good throwback, too 🙂

When I Want Sunshine (A Playlist!)

If you’re in need of some new tunes to brighten up your day, I share my favorite uplifting playlist here!

Hello everyone!

Music has a place of prominence in my life. Something that I know about myself is that different kinds of music affect my mood. This playlist contains a lot of my favorite songs I listen to when I’m either extremely happy, or I need a pick me up. And then I realized that a couple of my favorites talked about sunshine. Now that can’t be a coincidence. So, I found some other “sunshine” songs, and I compiled it into one big happy playlist. So, I thought I would share my secret sunshine playlist with you!

The playlist is on Spotify, and my username is writerchic in case the embedded link doesn’t cooperate!

Since spring is well on its way, I thought this would be a fun post to help get us all in a spring-time mood! I hope this playlist made you happy. Let me know in the comments if you have any favorite spring-y or sunny songs you would like to share! I would love to hear them 🙂

XOXO

Music Linked to Memories

I know I’m not the only one who associates certain memories with music. Read as I reminisce to the sounds of Adele and We The Kings.

Hello everyone!

Music is such a huge part of my life. I am constantly listening to music. When I’m walking, driving, and writing! There are also certain songs that are forever linked to memories, and whenever I hear them play, it reminds me of them. Here, I’ll share a couple with you!

// “In The Still of the Night” by the Five Satins //

This song makes me think of my first slow dance with Tanner. I had never slow danced with anybody before, and this song was on the playlist of doo-wop oldies that he put together for us. When this song came on I started to sing along, and then he did, too. So, while this song played we sang and danced together. It was the moment I knew I wanted to be with him forever.

// “Check Yes Juliet” We The Kings //

I went to Warped Tour over the summer in 2016 and saw We The Kings, a favorite band of mine. I love the band mostly because of the lead singer Travis and his wife Jenny’s vlogging channel on YouTube, which I watched all the time that summer. When I hear this song, I think about that hot summer afternoon when I danced my heart out to this song. And the strong scent of marijuana that is always so prevalent at any festival.

 

// Japanese House //

I listened to this band while on the plane on each of my three plane-trips in 2017. To Harry Potter World in Orlando, California, and Grand Cayman. My cousin Sarah introduced me to them, and I downloaded two of their EPs before I went on the trip to Orlando last spring break. Now, their songs “Sugar Pill” and “Sister” especially remind me of flying in a plane, looking out the window into an expanse of sky.

// “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele //

A 2011 oldie that I sang at a Coffe House performance way back in freshman year of high school with my friends. And every time I hear this song I cringe a little bit, but I’m taken back to that night where I was so excited and nervous to perform.

// Any Aly & AJ song //

Aly & Aj reminds me of literally my entire preteen existence, because I listened to both “Insomniatic” and “Into The Rush” obsessively for probably about five years. My best friend Sammie and I bonded over our mutual obsession over the sisters’ music. I nearly passed out with joy when I discovered that they came out with “Take Me” over the summer. I listened to that single song on repeat as I drove around my hometown, waiting for August to end.
