I believe I love my guitar more than the others love theirs. For John and Paul, songwriting is pretty important and guitar playing is a means to an end. While they’re making up new tunes I can thoroughly enjoy myself just doodling around with a guitar for a whole evening. I’m fascinated by new sounds I can get from different instruments I try out. I’m not sure that makes me particularly musical. Just call me a guitar fanatic instead, and I’ll be satisfied.
"I met her one sunny morning
It was hot but the snow lay on the ground
Strange things, very strange things, my mind has wings
They could all learn something from your mind"
featuring tunes by Fats Domino, The Sonics, and The Animals
Criei essa lista segundo as últimas páginas do livro "A caminho do verão" da Sarah Dessen. Segundo a autora, essas são as músicas que marcaram o processo de escrita do seu livro :)

This mix explores the negative emotions that can spring up when love comes knocking. Jealousy, bad break-ups, changing feelings, cheating, doubt, and regret are all touched upon in this collection.
includes tracks by The Beatles, Jackie DeShannon, & Fiona Apple.
Fiz essa lista como um "presente surpresa" para os futuros leitores do livro Depois dos Quinze - Quando tudo começou a mudar, da blogueira Bruna Vieira.
A lista também é um agradecimento à Bruna por ter me enviado o livro antes mesmo dele ter sido lançado.

Just as the title says. These are the classics we (should) all love! I've always been one that looks for music as far outside of the norm as possible, but when it comes to Christmas tunes I'm a firm believer in sticking to the oldies, goodies, and classics. No, I don't want to hear Adele or your favorite shitty punk band sing a Sinatra cover, I want to hear ol' blue eyes himself. So grab your friends and family, spike the cocoa and start decorating!
This mix is comprised entirely from songs that can be found for free on Bandcamp, so if you find any that suit your fancy head over and support a small upcoming band! I would encourage you to donate at least a little something if you can to the bands if you do decide to download an album. Enjoy the sweet tunes, my dear friends.
This is an odd journey through all manner of celestial sounds. Progressive metal meets jazz meets electronic indie meets sludge. I never was one to make playlist for novice listeners so this one should stretch your genre appreciation a bit as usual.
I started this when i was homeless, had a hell-of-a-beard, worked the night shift at a hotel and owned a record store and drank a fifth a day to cure the sadness. Now I've never been happier, i have my first salaried audio engineering job, i'm dating the girl i want to marry, and actually fell hope and joy in my life. These are the songs that i fell in love with during my journey from then to now. Enjoy, or don't enjoy, i could care less.
This is a cassette B side I made of indie songs that every should, and probably does know. This is not a playlist to discover new music, but to sit back and relax too, knowing the next song will be as solid as the one before. Enjoy friends.
This.Is.An.Acid.Trip; hopefully an enjoyable one and not one that leaves you pissing yourself in some dark closet as you watch alien-mushroom-hell-spawns chase you through Super Mario 3 levels. Some of these have lacking sound quality simply because I converted most of these songs myself from my record collection. 33 songs of mostly uber-obscure psych gems from the 60's and 70's.
Singer/songwriters with a proficiency on piano/guitar seems to be the common theme here. Elliott, Ben, Beck, John, Seth, all great songwriters in their own way. Quite a sentimental playlist by all counts.
Genre hopping between genres, this grungy, slow, tiresome playlist is perfect to keep you occupied as you sit around and watch your epic beard grow to massive proportions. I'm drunk, by the way, can you tell?
This mix is full of old jazz/Americana tunes that should take you back to the past life you didn't have, throwing up your fists in the saloon for a good round of bare-knuckle-beatings over who gets to go home with the prettiest gal in the brothel.
I grew up in a strict house that only listened to Christian music, thus I grew up listening to it as well. It's impossible to deny the fact that some of this songs are still pretty rad, for sentimental and musical reasons.
A mix of nostalgic tunes to feel absolutely nothing to. They won't make you happy, they won't bring you down. Middle ground, mid-tempo, generally amazing songs that never peak, they will simply carry you where you need to go.
A mix made to accommodate both the road trip to the beach, and the beach vibe once you arrive. Drive, drink, nude sun bathe, shower to get all the sand out of your sensitive cracks, drive home, never press stop.
Right off the bat I can tell you this is an odd playlist. As a celebration of Buk (that loved classical music), and poetry in general, this is come classical music i enjoying having on as I wrote with some Bukowski poems thrown into the mix.
Fun, upbeat, and probably overplayed classic rock songs that make a perfect soundtrack for you and your lover, er...or special friend...to go out into the wilderness, pretend you're at Woodstock, and fuck like bunnies to. 50 tracks of fuckin' fun!
All of these songs come directly off mixtapes that I've acquired over the past year or so. This is music at its purest to me. I can hardly think of anything I enjoy more than getting a cassette and falling in love with it. Mixtapes to me are all about mood and cohesion to me, so hopefully this is a feel good playlist you can make use of in your own way.
Tracks by The Critters, Naked Gods, Invisible Hand and more!
Fourteen tracks including music by Mingus, Miles, and Monk. Some standards, some off the wall, some that I just fucking love, but it's jazz, so you're sure to have a foot tappin' time listening to this playlist.
Record Store Day 2012 songs. Yes, I've included the Mastodon/Feist covers, some Flips, a stellar cover of an old Jackson C. Frank tune, and other.
I was the guy outside of the record store in the middle of the night, chain smoking cigarettes, peering in the window like a homeless creep trying to catch even a glimpse of the glory inside.
I haven't gotten close to transferring all of the records I got from vinyl to digital, so this will continue to grow...
In the meantime, enjoy.
A pretty straightforward playlist of indie/alt. country/folk(ish) tunes. I tried to keep the mood as nostalgic and longingly upbeat as possible. I've had this list around on my computer for a while and frequently find myself dancing around the house quietly as I do dishes or fold clothes to it. Yes...I can be quite domesticated when I put my mind to it, and what?
It's surf rock time. Here's a little collection of hip, instrumental tunes full of teenage angst and rebellion, all shacked up in catchy instrumental numbers. What's not to like? (about the music I mean, I fucking hate the beach and hot weather and sand on my dick......)
Mountains. The one thing I have helplessly been in love with my entire adult life. I am constantly moving away, then moving back after a year. There is something so visceral about mountains for me. So this is a playlist of songs that remind me of my last stint in the mountains. Plenty of foot stomping, finger picking, lip licking tracks of upbeat folk songs for the hairiest of mountain men.
This playlist is like a giant-sandpaper-dildo-up-the-ass to all the men who call their women "my beloved automatic dishwasher/cocksucker." These women are awesome, euphoric, and full of catchy-pop-goodness.
This mix starts with David Foster Wallace's 2005 speech "This Is Water." This is a must listen speech, seriously, trust me just this once. I've also included some of my other random favorite "spoken word" clips including Bukowski, Tom Waits, and more. Oh, I had to throw some funny shit in too, just for shits and giggles of course.
This mix is simple. My.Personal.Taste. No flow, no reasoning. This flow is as diverse and ADD as I am. These are songs I've enjoyed greatly the past few weeks for various reasons.
Where else will you find a creepy fucking cover of a Disney tune bleed into Ethiopian Jazz and then completely flip to doom metal, and head back south to 60's garage psych, before going to indie folk and rock and finishing with a wicked ocean-of-a-cumshot?
A feel good list of tracks by the likes of the fearless freaks, mr. vile, the national, pavement, and so on. Tons of reverb and synth on these tracks to make you feel like you are floating through the universe, happy.
This mix is heavy laden with burly men making music for lumberjacks and other men of hairy origin. If this doesn't grow some hair on your face, by god son, I sure hope it puts some on your balls. Over 4 hours of heavy tunes to throw your face into hair growing frenzy.
Epic orchestral soundtracks from movies like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Blackhawk Down, Band of Brothers, Tron, Cool Runnings, Jurassic Park, Rocky...There is no way your life is epic enough to deserve this as its soundtrack -_-
A soundtrack for your escape. Gypsy/Western music to set the mood as you finally decide "fuck it," get in your shit-rag automobile, and start driving west. Motel rooms with a single light bulb, forgotten dinners, no name, no taxes, no government, no rules. This is for you, and wherever the road takes you.
Who else gets so hungover they would kill themselves if they could only manage to get out of bed and find a bridge or a shotgun slug?
This playlist is supposed to be enough of a mood cure to prevent that. It's worked so far...
A playlist I used to play at parties, when my house was full of random people drinking and having a good time.
I never had parties, I fucking hate parties, and random people in my personal space, so I suppose this is a playlist I used to drink alone to.
