Rockin' September Playlist

18 September, 2016

[I do not own this image.]

1. Mix Tape by Brand New // This song should be at the beginning of every playlist, mix tape, and story.

"And I know that you're a sucker for anything acoustic,
But when I say let's keep in touch,
I hope you know I mean I wish that you'd grow up."

2. Hometown by Twenty One Pilots // It's practically impossible to make a playlist without mentioning Twenty One Pilots. This is my current favorite.

"We don't know, we don't know, 
How to put the power back in our soul, 
We don't know, we don't know, 
Where to find what was once in our bones."

3. Critical Mistakes by 888 // I know very little about this band but the music video says a lot about forgiveness and I strongly advise you to listen to this gem.

"I want a house on a hill by the ocean,
And let the tide wash away all my critical mistakes."

4. Anywhere With You by Saves The Day // For when you rid a negative person from your life,and are just looking for adventure and people to share it with.

"Here's to the passing
of all that could be
between you and me."

5. Sometimes You're The Hammer, Sometimes You're The Nail by A Day To Remember // This song is a little aggressive but there are no swear words and these lyrics are always running through my mind:

"I reserve my right to feel uncomfortable, I reserve my right to be afraid.
I make mistakes and I am humbled every step of the way. 
I want to be a better person, I want to know the master plan,
Cast your stones, cast your judgement, you don't make me who I am."

6. The (Shipped) Gold Standard by Fall Out Boy // All over the place, practically poetry, underlying theme about complicated love.

"I wanna scream 'I love you' from the top of my lungs,
but I'm afraid that someone else will hear me."

7. Goodnight Moon by Go Radio // This is a slower song, something that I don't usually post about, but it's incredibly sweet and very dramatic.

"Cause I've been trying way too long,
To try and be the perfect song,
When our hearts are heavy burdens,
We shouldn't have to bear alone."

8. Young Stars by The Struts // Dreams can be real and you will be amongst your own one day.

"You've got nothing to lose, all to gain,
And nothing is worth doing if it don't cause pain,
Because I was born for it, I just want you to know."

  1. I want to listen to all of this. I actually had someone recommend that I listen to Brand New a while back, maybe I should revisit it.

    1. I like a few songs by Brand New (jude law and a semester abroad)but don't know too much, so let me know if you like them!
