my playlist - part one

When I asked for blogging suggestions the other day, Sarah had a great idea (actually several, but I'm only using one at a time) -- talk about my playlist.  Actually, I have several.  Today, I'll talk about what's on my iPhone at the moment.

I'm a mellow music kinda gal.  So many of my favorite songs come from the last 5 minutes of shows like Scrubs and One Tree Hill -- acoustic stuff that plays up a dramatic or reflective sequence. Here's a sampling of the songs I keep with me at all times:
  • David Gray/Jackdaw, First Chance, Breathe  I've loved David Gray's music since college.  He has such a passionate voice.  And his music continues to be good (even though his music doesn't get the notoriety it deserves).
  • Wakey!Wakey!/Brooklyn  <----- If you click one link on this post, make it this one. The piano in this song is GORGEOUS!
  • Kris Allen/Heartless and Live Like We're Dying  He was my fave on AI early on.  I normally can't spot the winner that quickly.  So yay!
  • Right Away, Great Captain/I Was a Cage  I found this one on Michelle's blog playlist.  Confession: sometimes I go to her blog just for the music.  :)
  • The Avett Brothers/I and Love and You  I don't have much to say except that I really really like this song.  I was afraid if this was the only one I left blank you'd think it was no good.  So not the case! 
  • Kate Voegele/You Can't Break a Broken Heart and Devil in Me  Her album was the first full album I ever downloaded from iTunes.  It's a good one. 
  • Ingrid Michaelson/Maybe  Pretty, pretty video.
  • Everly/Maybe  Apparently I like songs titled "Maybe". :)
  • Slipknot/Snuff   So I don't normally like Slipknot (translation: people in masks creep me out something fierce) but the song is surprisingly good.
  • Jack's Mannequin/Swim  I really prefer the version performed on the Daily Show, but the recording is great, too, and I love the video.
  • Marie Digby/What I've Done  A very pretty cover of the Linkin Park song.
Stay tuned.  I have more playlists to share soon!
