My November Jam

Growing up, I used to love making mixtapes and mix CDs.  The opportunity to share favourite songs, discover new artists and the unique joy of knowing your friend/crush was listening to the exact same music somewhere else?

Awesome.

With the advent and ascension of iTunes and spotify, it's fallen out of vogue, but I still yearn for that sharing economy, that "here's my jam", that "I-realise-this-song-is-fifteen-years-old-but-I-am-currently-obsessed-with-it".

So every month or so, I'm going to post a youtube playlist of what's currently rocking my little musical world.  Before it all gets VERY Christmassy next month (39 days, guys!), here's my November mix....



1. Blank Space - Taylor Swift

Good heavens, this woman.  Love this song, love this video, love the whole album.  I am super-psyched to see her live again next year!

2. Funny Little Frog - Belle and Sebastian

I always have time for a good Scottish indie tune.

3. If I Were A Boy - Beyoncé

So help me, I like this song.  B can belt like nobody's business and this is a good old tune!


4. Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran

I never used to really have an opinion on Ed Sheeran.  I'm well beyond his target demo and he was an artist I didn't like much...but was pleasant enough not to rile me!  However, his recent songs ('Sing' and 'Don't, as well as his duet with Taylor Swift) I've enjoyed, and this song I love.  It's just so sweet and the video's lovely.

5. Criminal - Fiona Apple

Angsty girl music of the indie-rock variety.  This was a repeat player in my youth!

6. Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day

:)

7. What Goes Around....Comes Around - Justin Timberlake

I love how OTT this video is!  Great pop song.

8. Underneath The Stars - Kate Rusby

Kate Rusby is one of my favourite folk singers, and this song is beautiful.

9. Twenty Years and Two Husbands Ago - Lee Ann Womack

Ah, country.

10. I Won't Give Up - Lennon and Maisy (covering Jason Mraz)

Speaking of country, when is Nashville back?  Man I love that show.

11. "Let It Go" via Google Translate - Malinda Kathleen Reese

I first saw this a few months ago and still love it.  Always nice to break out some comedy in a mix.  

12. Signed Sealed Delivered - Stevie Wonder

This song always reminds me of 'Now and Then' - awesome movie!

13. When It's Raining - Striking Matches

SM were one of my favourite acts at this year's Country 2 Country extravaganza.  I cannot wait for their album to drop!

14. Untitled - D'Angelo

I used to love this song and the album from whence it came.  I was reading a piece about RnB stars of the 90s and 00s and promptly fell down an internet hole of career paths.  Such is my bag.

PS Loving this whole album

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
