Bedroom Dance Party: A Playlist

Leave a comment Standard

Good Morning and Happy Friday, everyone!

After a busy work week (that came with plenty of snow!), I’m looking forward to a long holiday weekend to unwind, decompress- and also head back into NYC for a day away!

Leading up to this weekend, I’ve compiled a quick, 10-track playlist of the songs I’ve been listening to over and over lately- typically when I’m in my bedroom and getting ready for work and/or to go out for the night. They get me dancing, or singing along- usually both- and I’ve dubbed this my honorary Spring playlist for 2017- even if we haven’t quite reached Spring yet!

We’re almost there, though- right?

Featuring tracks from Fitz & The Tantrums, Warpaint and Kings of Leon- among others- here’s my latest mix, courtesy of 8Tracks: “Bedroom Dance Party!”

Have a great weekend!


“Hello, 2016” – A Playlist

The other night, when Sean and I were returning to Boston from Hyannis after our New Year’s Eve/Day celebration in Nantucket- I designated him vehicle DJ while I was behind the wheel and put him in charge of compiling a playlist that would keep me awake (it’s a long drive) without being TOO loud. While he and I have many things in common from our favorite movies, video games, and food- our musical tastes can be pretty different at times- and I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Sean surprised me, though- and put together a 15-song soundtrack of dreamy, dance-able songs that I loved so much- I insisted he share the track listing with me so that I could upload it to my 8Tracks account and share it with everyone!

So here is ‘Hello, 2016’ – a playlist to welcome the New Year! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
