I don't know about you guys, but Mondays suck. Especially for those of us working tomorrow, since it's after a major food coma, what with Passover and Easter. Here's a little bit of a moodlifter for all of you, which will hopefully help the week feel shorter:
I made a mixtape for you guys, teeheehee. :)
You can't skip songs more than 3 times (I think) but here are the tracks anyways:
1: Brooke Fraser - Something in the Water (because there's awesome stuff for YOU in the water this week!)
2: Oh Land - White Nights
3: Feist - Inside and Out
4: Mumford and Sons - Awake my Soul (you want to wake up your soul so that your week is successful, non?)
5: Ella Fitzgerald ft. Louis Armstrong - Dream a Little Dream of Me
6: Tori Amos - Cornflake Girl (this song makes me feel so energetic and ready to conquer the world and bounce around, it's crazy!)
7: Among Savages - New York City (this is such feel good song! Any Gossip Girl fans out there? They played this song 2 episodes ago, my heart quite literally melted.)
8: Vampire Weekend - Campus (I'm on a campus all day, so...)
9: Shakira ft. El Cata - Rabiosa ("rabid", in Spanish - this song is SO FUN, it's great to wake up to! Also fun to discreetly shimmy to on the metro, who cares if people look.)
10: M.I.A: Jimmy (such a fun song!)
11: Finley Quaye - Dice (not the most energetic song ever, but his voice and lyrics are so lovely I couldn't help but include it.)
12: The Pierces - Boy in a Rock and Roll Band (this song is usually played the morning after or while television show characters are walking the streets early in the morning before work with a coffee, so I think it's appropriate).
13: Matt and Kim: Daylight (the song is called Daylight, enough said.)
14: Beyonce: Run the World Girls (this is the CONQUER part of the mix! Pretend you're climbing the corporate ladder and breaking down the glass ceiling! Or getting an A on a really hard assignment! WHOOT GO YOU!
I also have a few cute music videos for you! Although these songs are good on their own, they're even better with the video context, so have fun with these! Maybe they'll influence your fashion choices for the day?
Settle Down by Kimbra - this music video is so satirical, I love it!
Call me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen - I know, I know, this is a very "teen" song, but it's way too catchy for its own good, and her clothes are so cute! Also, the romance novel references are funny.
Any music recommendations? What are your favourite songs? Let me know what you thought of the mix and music videos! :) Are there any other mixtapes you'd like me to make? I can make workout ones, dreaming ones, slow morning ones, "getting ready to go party" ones...
Have a great start to the week everyone, and SMILE!
