THE SUMMER MIX TAPE: Day Fourteen through Twenty-Two

AH LIFE. So much is happening! In just under 48 hours I will be galavanting off to London for many wonderful times ahead. I look forward to all the picnics and adventures, all the new people I’ll meet. But! With that and all the planning and what not that’s been happening, I’ve sadly slacked on posting the daily songs.

I haven’t forgotten them, I’ve been writing them down and now here for you are the latest additions to this summer’s mix tape. Plus, keep watch, a new mix tape (or two) are on their ways. PEACE.

DAY FOURTEEN: “Icky Thump” by The White Stripes

DAY FIFTEEN: “Mississippi Isabel” by King Charles

DAY SIXTEEN: “This Time Tomorrow” by The Kinks

DAY SEVENTEEN: “Howlin’ For You” by The Black Keys

DAY EIGHTEEN: “One Thing” by Finger Eleven

DAY NINETEEN: “The Book Of Love” (Magnetic Fields/Peter Gabriel Cover) by Jasmine Kennedy

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE: Day Seven & Eight | “Into Yesterday” by Sugar Ray and “Liquid Dreams” by O-Town

It’s time to kick it old school and breathe in that nostalgia. It’s a time to remember those days when we didn’t perhaps fully understand all those lyrics but sang along and loved them nonetheless. Both songs capture a sense of warmer weather and a time gone past. One was a great suggestion by a fellow Rooster Teeth Community member, Starlightdoe, and the second was a song that sprung upon the discovery that O-Town is planning a new tour.

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE ~ DAY SEVEN & EIGHT.jpgThe sentimentality is flowing freely and we’re once again whisked away to a time no longer. Whether the skies are overcast, the sun is shining brightly, or our windows are drenched with copious amounts of precipitation, we all know that the general summer months are upon us.

Perhaps we aren’t all on vacation, but lets take these months and create adventures in them. We don’t have to have anything scheduled because it’s in the least likely places that the best moments occur.

So open your eyes, allow your mind to see, and your feet to tread lightly. Push away the negative and embrace the positive because the magnificent will happen when you least expect it.

DAY SEVEN: “Into Yesterday” by Sugar Ray

DAY EIGHT: “Liquid Dreams” by O-Town

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE: Day Five | “Tessellate” (Alt-J Cover) by Ellie Goulding

Lets tessellate. Lets go on adventures and stay up until the wee hours of the morning. Lets lay under the stars. Lets wonder what our purpose is. Lets hold hands. Lets eat our favourite foods and try new things. Lets collapse into each other’s arms and never let go.

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE ~ DAY FIVE.jpg“Triangles are my favourite shape, Three points where two lines meet, Toe to toe, back to back, let’s go, my love; it’s very late, ‘Til morning comes, let’s tessellate”

Create moments that will be unforgettable. A look, a glances, a hand, a graze, a touch. Everything whirl winding, building up to the moment patience has struggled to obtain and when it arrives, let the flood gates open.

For who knows what the future holds, but the excitement is overbearing and time for the first in forever can’t fly by fast enough.

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE: Day Two, Three, & Four | “One Night In Bangkok” by Murray Head, “Contact High” by Architecture In Helsinki, and “In The Sun” by She & Him

Ah life, how it gets in the way. My sincerest apologies for being a couple of days behind on the mix tape. I’ve been making a list of songs, just the days fly by (already!) and I haven’t had a moment to sit down, write a little thing, and post it on up.

These past few days have been busy and a whirlwind of awesome. Let me just say it now, this summer is going to be epic and this afternoon just confirmed it. So many adventures and surprises and amazing things are bound to happen (and are being planned to) and I’m not sure if I’m patient enough.
It’ll be a summer full of meeting friends from afar, reconnecting with old ones, visiting new places, starting new moments with majestic people, and just a bundle of wonderful memories to be had.

So lets get down to the songs, days two through four and allow the summer air to lift you up and whisk you away to a whole new world.

DAY TWO: “One Night In Bangkok” by Murray Head

DAY THREE: “Contact High” by Architecture In Helsinki

DAY FOUR: “In The Sun” by She & Him

THE SUMMER MIX TAPE: Day One | “I Think I Like You” by SIREN

From the beginning of the day up until now (and now being early  afternoon), it has been one happy day. I woke up early as  planned, got my sister to the bus on time, had breakfast and got ready for the day ahead. I grabbed lunch and popped onto the usual social media sites, where low and behold I came THE SUMME MIX TAPE ~ DAY ONE.across this song via the wonderful The Wild Honey Pie.

Not only did the title of the song fit the day so far, but the fluidity of the video and the summery air fit the mood and how I hope the rest of the summer continues. The weather outside is thankfully not frightful, a little brisk with the breeze, but pleasant enough for just a dress and light jacket. Today I also started my very own everything blog, and hopefully soon to be my own website, once the tweaks are all ironed out.

So enjoy this light tune and I hope it puts a spring in your step and a positive spin on your outlook for the summer ahead. I can’t wait to see what adventures are in store.

Take me back to the nineties, but bring my friends too. We can dress like the characters from Clueless, swap mix tapes, and it’ll be totally rad.
