Music Keeping Me Sane Right Now

I’m winding up my time at my job and getting ready for my big move (for those of you that don’t know, I’m heading down to Austin in a few weeks to start grad school.) Needless to say I have a million things running through my mind, here are some songs that I’m listening to get me through:

You Can Call Me Al – Paul Simon

For some reason on the train back from Springfield a couple of weeks ago, I put on the Paul Simon Spotify station. It was an excellent choice.

Brass in Pocket – The Pretenders

Border Animals – Ravenna Woods

Bodies – Robbie Williams

Just for the record, I am completely aware that this song is ridiculous, but it was a big hit in Ireland when I spent a semester there and for some reason it popped into my head last week (and it will not go away.)

Don’t – Ed Sheeran

So this apparently about how Ellie Goulding cheated on him (potentially with a member of One Direction? Rumors are hard to follow sometimes), which sucks, but the song doesn’t.

Burn – Ellie Goulding

Because I still really love her anyway…

Boom Clap – Charlie XCX

Because it’s getting my vote for TBTL Song of the Summer

I Do My Father’s Drugs – Joe Pug

He’s a Chicago boy who now lives in Austin, and I saw him play at Millennium Park recently and it was awesome.

Boy Crazy – Lydia Loveless

I get to see her in a weekish at Wicker Park Fest!! So excited that I get to cross that off my list before the move.

Lets Get High – Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

Because it’s summer.
