So I know it seems like I’ve already been on a blog vacation lately, (sorry, summer slump…) but I leave on my actual annual trip to the East Coast tomorrow morning. In preparation I’ve put together a really mellow travel mix to listen to on the plane. Enjoy and expect a vacation recap post in a little over a week! (You can follow my on Instagram now @kathryndennett if you must know what I’m doing while I’m away.)
If I Die Young – The Band Perry
The first of many of these songs that make me cry if I’m in the wrong mood, but instantly calm me if I’m in the right one.
America – Simon & Garfunkel
A perfect traveling song.
Bad Religion – Frank Ocean
This version in particular, gets me every time. I love that he brought a string section to Fallon.
In My Place – Coldplay
One of my favorites in high school, the repetition makes it like a lullaby to me.
Almost Love – A Fine Frenzy
OK so this one pretty much always makes me cry, but I adore it anyway. It’s about a situation that I think is pretty common in modern life but you never hear songs about, and it captures the bittersweet emotion perfectly.
We Can’t Have Nice Things – Kelly Hogan
If you have ever read this blog before this should not be a surprise.
My Sweet Lord – George Harrison
This song has been stalking me the last few weeks. It was playing at the MSI as I walked into the Omnimax, it was Jimmy Kimmel’s wedding walk out song (according to the stalkers at People Magazine, I wasn’t there), and someone was playing it really loudly out of an open window as I was walking home last night. I’m OK with all of this.
Anna Begins – Counting Crows
Because I share Luke on TBTL’s not-secret-at-all-secret love of the Crows.
Cover Me Up – Jason Isbell
Formerly of the Drive By Truckers – I heard him on Fresh Air last week and fell in love.
Sam’s Town – The Killers
The ultimate coming home song for me. I don’t even really know why.
Have a good week!!
