Music Mood

It was forever ago that I published one of these posts!  I became inspired to write one again after listening to an old iPod I  found.  On it was all the music I listened to in high school and college.  It definitely gave me nostalgia and was a blast from the past!  I love when stations play older songs!

Sugar We’re Going Down: Fall Out Boy

What are some of your favorite songs or bands from back in the day?


Music Mood

This week one of my Pandora stations played some of my favorite songs of the moment and it was amazing!  It was a day that I really needed it and was grateful that Pandora was feeling my mood.  The songs really helped.

Albums of the Moment

Stronger: Kelly Clarkson


She is one of my favorite American Idol winners!  She is such a talented singer and a sweet person!  This album is great and I enjoy listening to it on my commute to and from work.  I know this is an older album and Clarkson is not a popular anymore but frankly I don’t care.  I listen to whatever I am feeling and am in the mood for so that is just how it goes.  Download this album today!  You will not regret it!

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful: Florence + The Machine


I love this album and it had been a staple on my stereo for the past couple of months!  This album is listened to on my drive home from work and really helps mellow my mood.  The one thing I love about the album is the emotions felt in the various songs. Just listening to the lyrics and way the songs are sung  just has an impact on me and I just get submersed in this album!  I am totally loving it and it may be one of my favorite ones of the year!

Music Mood

It has been a long time since I have done a Music Mood post.  I try to do these at least once a week or when something inspires me but I have been slacking on these posts. From now on I will make an effort to be more consistent when it comes to my music posts.

The Lumineers: Cleopatra


I have been obsessed with the song Ophelia by the Lumineers!  It has been a while since they have come out with new material and I’m glad that it is finally happening! I used and still do listen to their older songs a lot.  I love their older songs and some of them I enjoy more than their new stuff.  It should be no surprise that I have bought the band’s new album!  Now I have some new tunes to listen to on my way to work! So, so, so excited!

Golden Age of Country


The next choice will be a shocker for your regular readers: it’s country.  But not the popular county but old school country.  My grandpa loved older country artists and songs so this is for him.  He owned The Golden Age of Country albums which are the CDs that I own now.  Sometimes I listen to them when in the mood.  They are good tracks if if you are a country song lover. Hey one of the songs is titled  Hillbilly Heaven  It does not get ore country or hick than that song title.

Flo Rida: My House


I have been obsessed with this song ever since I heard it on an ad for a TV show.  I love it and now I hear it played everywhere!  It is such a good song of the moment.

What have you been listening or jamming out to?

Keeping it Old School



There has been so much old school music being played on the radio and my Pandora stations that I needed to share.  These songs sent megabuck t my high school and middle school days.  It was glad to hear different music than just the top 10 songs of the moment.  Those songs just get overplayed and are not as good as some songs of the past.

Music Mood: High Hopes for Better Stations

My car ride to work in the morning has been terribly long.  The traffic has been bad and the local radio stations suck unless you enjoy hearing the top 10 pop songs played on repeat or tons of commercials after every song.  Both of those things got on my nerves just as much as the traffic did.  To make the drive to work more pleasant I picked my own tunes from that point on.  Some of my favorite

Bruce Springsteen: High Hopes



Love, love, love this album.  I was a woman who was born and raised on Bruce Springsteen and the E street band’s music.  It was a staple in my house and my first concert ever was when he played at Giants Stadium in 2003. It was an awesome experience and he played on even though it was pouring rain outside.  This album helps make the commute easier and enjoy the songs too!  I wish I could listen to it all the time but I would probably get sick of it eventually, Nah lol!  bold= favorite

Also, have been loving Sigh No More!  Ugh, I just can’t get enough of the band!  Favorite songs are asterisked.

Until my area gets or improves their radio stations or adds new ones to the mix I am going to stick to my own music.  My drives will consist of favorite albums, playlists on my iPod, and cd Mix.  Yeah, yeah, I’m kind of old fashioned when it comes to tech and gadgets.  Heck, my car is so old it even has a cassette player.  So I guess that’s it folks.

Feel free to comment with any albums or artists you think I should check out.  I have a pretty eclectic music taste but not into rap or old country/bluegrass.



Music Mood

Been slacking on the music mood posts but I guess I have just been waiting for some inspiration or good music to post about.  This summer my family and I took a road trip from FL to NY.  I knew the drive would be very long so I created road tip mixes to play while on the road. Since the drive to NY was long I needed lots of songs to keep us going during the trip.  I have to say the came out better than expected and I have been listening to them lately.

Music Mood: The Big Chill

Lately I have been listening to the soundtrack to the movie The Big Chill.  The album is amazing and I have been playing it for the past few days.  My family is old school and we have The Big Chill record and a record player so I play the album on that instead of from iTunes.  Let me tell you this was a nice refreshing break from the overplayed pop songs on the radio.  Love  this album and I should go old school more often!  What is you favorite oldies album or soundtrack?  Check out the movie too!  It’s just as good as the soundtrack.
