2012 Playlist and Froggy Towelon January 18, 2013 at 7:43 am
With the start of a new year, one thing I always do on my ipod is create a playlist of the best songs from the previous year. What I do is pick one track from each album I’ve purchased that was released that year. The song I pick isn’t necessarily the “Best song” on the album, but one that goes well in a mix of other songs picked.
1. No Way Down- The Shins. Port of Morrow.
2. Panic Station- Muse. The 2nd Law
3. Jealous Girl- Ben Kweller. Go Fly a Kite.
4. The Celestials- Smashing Pumpkins. Oceania.
5. The Sound of the Life of the Mind- Ben Folds Five. The Sound of the Life of the Mind.
6. We Are Young- Fun. Some Nights.
7. How We Land- P.O.S. We Don’t Even Live Here.
8. Happy Birthday, George Takei- Five Year Mission. The Trouble with Tribbles EP
9. Werewolf- Fiona Apple. The Idler Wheel…
10. Senorita- Tenacious D. Rize of the Fenix.
11. Black Saturday- Soundgarden. King Animal.
Smashing Pumpkins. Fiona Apple. Soundgarden. Ben Folds Five. This could be a mix from the 90′s! My favorite album last year was probably Ben Kweller’s Go Fly a Kite. It is a catchy pop/rock record that I highly recommend.
-Nina Update. I took a picture of Nina in her adorable frog towel after a bath one day. Now she demands I take a picture of her everyday after her bath. She throws a fit when I don’t. Eventually I will have an adorable time lapse photo montage charting Nina’s growth, and I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
