Throughout the year, I discovered many songs across various genres and decades. Below is a list specific to 2017 – the songs I listened to on repeat, the ones that made me feel something, that made me dance, and made me cry. Happy listening and Happy New Year!!!
For the past six or so months I’ve been trying to keep a positive/happy facade during a time of personal struggle in my life. But you know what? I’m fucking done with that. I’m pissed off and frustrated. If this is growing up, I think Peter Pan had the right idea. So today, I prescribed myself a dose of loud music and a spoonful of head-banging-whilst-lip-singing songs. This was today’s playlist:
Bleachers “I Wanna Get Better”
All American Rejects “Gives You Hell”
Fall Out Boy “What A Catch, Donnie”
Quietdrive “Rise From the Ashes”
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus “Face Down”
The Used/My Chemical Romance “Under Pressure”
I was at the MisterWives/Bleachers show last night in NYC (FYI It was fucking awesome!!!) As you may or may not know, the front man of Bleachers is Jack Antonoff of Fun. fame. Jack is dating Lena Dunham who happens to be my favorite person/celebrity. I have not met her personally but as an outsider, I adore her personality, opinions, writing and now I can add her dancing abilities to the list. Yes, I was standing across from Ms. Dunham at last nights show and got to see her dance it out to her boyfriends band. And that is why my world is now complete.
Enjoy your weekends!
