ello internet friends! I don't know about ya'll, but I sit all day at my desk jamming out to the radio (currently siriusxm @altnation), and I mean jamming. Also I work, occasionally.
BUT LUCKILY, this weekend is a three day holiday! So, because I am such a good friend (she doesn't even go here!), I bequeath upon you Erin's Labor Day Playlist (yes, that's the best title I could come up with. I can't be witty all the time, guys.)
I spent a disproportionate amount of time on the flow of this playlist, so I suggest listening in order (suggest is a nice way for my OCD to say, LISTEN TO IT IN ORDER). Thanks for understanding my crazy, e'rybody. You da best.
I called out some pretty sweet quotes that give me feelings and stuff and I left some of my own comments regarding some of the songs. When I say "notable lyric", I mean notable to myself... which lyric made you have feels?
ENJOY AND SHARE, CHILDREN. YOU ARE EVER SO WELCOME.
ALL OF THE PEOPLE – Panama Wedding
Panama Wedding and I tweeted back and forth one day. Needless to say, we're basically besties.
WEEKEND – Priory
This is how I feel every time I get my big girl paycheck. Woo.
MOTHER AND FATHER – Broods
OMG if this isn't how you feel in adulthood, then you need to help me out because, honey, I definitely don't have the hang of this "real world thing" yet.
DANGEROUS (feat. Joywave) – Big Data
STOLEN DANCE – Milky Chance
This german man's hair has so much body, how does he do it?! Probably by not showering. Yay, go millenials.
WORK IT OUT – Knox Hamilton
I'M SEEING THEM IN OCTOBER. CAN'T WAIT. THAT'S ALL, THX.
AGORA – Bear Hands
Right, so every time I hear this song I start to dance like a white dad grilling at a bbq. Which I'm sure looks ridiculous at my desk, lipsyncing anyone?
STAY WITH ME – Sam Smith
ALL OF THE FEELS.
THE WILD LIFE – Vacationer
RIPTIDE – Vance Joy
BUDAPEST – George Ezra
Guys, this kid is only twenty-one. TWENTY ONE. HOW?
TONGUES (feat. Kopps) – Joywave
TIP: great song to shower to, just don't dance too much or you'll fall like me (clumsy...)
TAKE ME TO CHURCH – Hozier
Another major FEELS song. I can't not sing along to this song. Well done, sir.
FLAWS – Bastille
HAVE YOU SEEN DAN SMITH'S HAIR? Go google, I'll wait.
BEWARE THE DOG – The Griswolds
So with all my internet prowess, I discovered that this was about a friend of the band's who struggled with drug issues. Which in retrospect to HOW FUN THE SONG IS, makes me want to give someone a hug. But then I dance instead (by dance, I mean jump around like a fool).
ELEVATE – St. Lucia
DOES THIS NOT REMIND YOU OF TEARS FOR FEARS?
I WANNA GET BETTER – Bleachers
For all of us who realize we need to change once we've already gone too far. (woah, that was close to being a serious statement -- I'm never serious!?)
Also, because somehow this was never mentioned, and I always mention them: CATS!
Happy Labor Day! Have fun this weekend, but not too much (okay maybe a little much, but don't go overboard!)
