Mix: The List Of Things I Want This Summer



Apparently I can only ever make melancholic mixes because that's the only kind of music I ever listen to. Here is a mix for reflecting on that person you knew this summer and the way it came to an end.



Click to download.

Gimme Sympathy - Metric
Got no time to take a picture
I'll remember someday
All the chances we took
We're so close to something better left unknown


New Romantic - Laura Marling
So we stayed up late one night to try and get our problems right
but I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind
and I think he knew where I was going 'cause he put Ryan Adams on
I think he thinks it makes me weak; it only ever makes me strong


I Will Follow You into the Dark - Death Cab for Cutie
If Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark


Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop - Landon Pigg
If I didn't know you I'd rather not know
If I couldn't have you I'd rather be alone
I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much
All of the while I never knew


I'll Spend my Life with You - the Monkees
And I hope you're there
And you still care
And if you do
I'll spend my life with you


Black Sand - Jenny Lewis
I feel in love with a beautiful boy on the black sand
He took me away; I was never the same on the black sand
He said "Who’s going to love you buried underground?"
Oh... on the black sand


Human of the Year - Regina Spektor
Why are you so scared
You stand their shaking in your pew
The icons are whispering to you
They're just old men


First Love - Emmy the Great
Now the thought of you is burnt
On my body from the first
Time you did rewind that line from Hallelujah
The original Leonard Cohen version


Mango Tree - Angus and Julia Stone
From her lips I heard her say
Can I have you
Call her up oh what to say
I said you do


You Just May Be the One - the Monkees
I saw when you walked by
The lovelight in your eyes
I knew I must try
To win you more than as a friend


Squeal - Daphne Rubin-Vega
Maybe to you it's just a game
Cause I hang around in the pouring rain
It's cold outside and I wanna say
Unzip my skin and come on in


You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC
Cause the walls start shaking
The earth was quaking
My mind was aching
And we were making it


She Moves in her Own Way - the Kooks
You're not about to lie down for your cause
But you don't pull my strings
'Cos I'm a better man
Moving on to better things

This looks awesome! I'll be snagging it tomorrow :)
aww..It is winter already :(
snagging this thanks!
okay so.
one: love laura, jenny, emmy and regina.
two: what other music is similar that is awesome? :]
(laura and emmy are my favorite of the two)
Emily Haines (including Metric's excellent new album); Johnny Flynn; The Wainwrights: both Martha and Rufus; Russian Red; Landon Pigg (possibly); Beirut (certainly); Andrew Bird; St. Vincent; and of course Leonard Cohen. I'm sure I could name others if I spent more time mulling it over but the problem is I listen to so much music that I can't automatically assume you'd appreciate an artist I like and I am fairly certain that at least you'll like these individuals! Happy listening... lemme know what you think of those artists.

ETA: Maybe I'll make a mix...
thanks so much!
and a mix would be awesome,if at all possible :]
