What I’m listening to

1987: Dad at 17 years old with me

I’ve always been a playlist kind of person. I believe that music can completely affect the mood you’re in and even save your life. My dad says that every morning, before he wakes up and starts thinking about all the shit he has to do that day, he puts on a CD and cranks it as loud as the Bose will go.  He says that he has all of the mixes I’ve made since the summer of 2005. Hearing that inspired me to make a new CD for him. I titled it “Sunshine of Your Love”. Here are the tracks:

America – Simon and Garfunkel

Overkill (Acoustic version) – Colin Hay

Blossom – Candlebox

Lucky Trumble – Nancy Wilson (from the Almost Famous soundtrack)

Thank You – Led Zeppelin

Lakeside Park – Rush

Around the Bend – Pearl Jam

Father and Daughter – Paul Simon

Wet Sand – Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sunshine of Your Love – Cream

Box of Rain – The Grateful Dead

Lightning Crashes – Live

Harvest Moon – Neil Young

Us and Them – Pink Floyd

Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones

Rivers of Babylon – Sublime

  1. Yep, I agree with you whole heartedly.

    Music can indeed save your life. Whenever I feel like shit, I sing, whenever I’m happy, I sing. That release just feels good, or makes your feel better anyways. No matter how awful your voice is. Music is definitely powerful and completely necessary.

    Hope life is going well.

    Also, Happy Birthday

  2. also… I heart all those songs….

    Bohemian Rhapsody has a special, emotional place in my heart for several reasons.
