okay. i am about to blow your mind. are you ready?
not only do i have - what i consider to be - the BEST playlist that i have ever shared with you -
but IT IS ALL IN THE SAME KEY. every single song seamlessly runs into each other, for your extreme listening pleasure...
it just so happens that a LOT of my favorite songs are all in the key of D.
i have no clue why... maybe because it's low enough that it allows for that deep, complex register down below - but also isn't TOO too high when you go up the octave - so you can belt your face off without being screechy or unpleasant... its just a warm key with a lot of depth... and SO MANY GORGEOUS SONGS are written in this key...
i am currently having a moment with the song "lost in the light" by Bahamas.
its a few years old, and i remember it from when it was released in 2012 on afie's FANTASTIC album: "Barchords"...
i have it on vinyl, even :D i glossed over the song a few years ago because i was going through a phase where i didn't listen to love songs, but NOW - oooooof. NOW it's hitting, and it's hitting SO. HARD. i am ALL ABOUT THIS SONG.... morning, noon, and night. i am living my whole life to this song this year. so of course it was going to be the first track on my winter playlist... but i wanted its moment to last longer than just the 3 minutes that the song plays... i wanted it to carry over into the next song and the next song... and so forth.
SO. i got this idea to listen to EVERY SINGLE SONG IN MY ITUNES, and pull all the ones out that are in the same key as "lost in the light." and THAT is how i discovered that an alarming amount of my all time favorite songs- ARE IN THE SAME KEY.
and that's just amazing to me.
no wonder they're my favorites - they all give me the same feels <3
i mean - like, MAJOR songs. life altering songs. "eyes closed" by the narrative, "beautiful" by meshell ndegeocello, and "ghosts" by nick lachey are all MAJOR moments in my life. i traveled the world with them.... and fell in love many times over with them. i was young and confused with them, and now i'm old and sorted out with them :D AND THEY ALL FIT INTO THIS LIST. it really blows my mind... i know i'm going on about it a bit - but SERIOUSLY. what if you made a list of the songs that have meant the most to you in your life - and then figure out they are all in the same exact key.... its wild! anyway...
without further ado - here are parts 1 and 2 (because 15 songs wasn't enough - you need 34 :D)
of my Winter Playlist 2015.
now, go spark up this candle (which is my favorite candle and smell in the whole entire wide world, because it reminds me of san francisco in my 20's...,) and do please enjoy :D <3 <3 <3
