Playlist 12: Slightly Ambivalent

I've given up trying to explain my taste in music to people and most people have given up trying to predict what I'll like (I usually fucking hate everything people try to get me to listen to...but I think that's just because I'm an awful person). Here's a playlist with a ton of eclectic shit on it that I tried to organize as well as I could. Everyone will probably only like one half of it. I'm not even going to bother putting this one up on Designers.MX because I'm sure I'd just get a ton of comments on it that are like, "This makes no sense, I don't get it" and blahhhh blah. What the fuck is there to get? It's a playlist. But I digress.

Side 01:
01. Dream A Little Dream Of Me (The Mamas & The Papas)
02. The Sweetest Thing (Camera Obscura)
03. Postcards From Italy (Beirut)
04. Green Aisles (Real Estate)
05. Never Going Back Again (Fleetwood Mac)
06. Venus As A Boy (Bjork)
07. White Sail (Cowboy Junkies)
08. My Maudlin Career (Camera Obscura)
09. Phoenix Wind (Yeasayer)
10. Vegas (Tennis)

Side 02:
01. Red Right Hand (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)
02. 777 (Danzig)
03. One Chance (Dananananaykroyd)
04. Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues (Mclusky) ...I might only like this song for the name
05. We're Desperate (X)
06. Godless (Danzig)
07. Violet (Hole)
08. Sex And Dying In High Society (X)
09. Screenwriters Blues (Soul Coughing) I'm not a lyrics person, but I LOVE the lyrics to this song

Listen and subscribe here, if you can make sense of this one ;)

I am going to Los Angeles to build a screenplay
about lovers who murder each other
I am going to Los Angeles to see my own name
on a screen, five feet long and luminous
as the radioman says, it is 5am
and the sun has charred the other side of the world and come back to us
and painted the smoke over our heads an imperial violet
it is 5am and you are listening to Los Angeles


  1. This playlist is goooooood. Thanks :)

    1. I'm so glad you like it! You're probably the only one that will lol. I'm glad I could share it with at least one person :D

  2. You're right - I don't get it. But that's awesome that I don't. Why does everyone have to "get" everything that people like.

  3. That Screenwriters Blues song is awesome!

  4. I'm excited that someone other than me likes it!

  5. i'm currently sitting in a painfully long night class, but as soon as i'm out, i'm going to give this a listen! thank you for new music. :)

    a sowing season.

  6. Sharp little playlist.

    I'm always scared to upload my playlists because even though I KNOW I have decent taste in music, I'm a baby about sharing it online. Props to you!

    1. thank you!! I say do it. people can like it or not, but it's yours and it's great because of that!
