Today, the calendar page finally flipped.
Which songs composed the best playlist for me for summer '10?
9. According To You by Orianthi
With reference to my inventory of things I've decided not to care about, a fitting theme song!
8. Sushi by Kyle Andrews
A really fun electro-ish track. It's about time the artist got a Wiki page to his name!
7. Mockingbird by Rob Thomas
I actually had a little trouble finding the name of this track. SO glad I finally did! A must-listen for Rob Thomas fans in general.
6. Bigger Than My Body by John Mayer
Really been topping my charts since I bought 'Heavier Things', one of Mayer's older albums. This is one of the best tracks on the album! Great lyrics, great tune, great artist, great album.
5. Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie
Deliciously soothing track. Definitely worth a download, sorry purchase, I'd say.
4. Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron and Wine
(In)famously dubbed as the Twilight prom scene song. Tragic, really.
But the fact of the matter is that it's a nice soft song with some quirky word combinations. And voila! Out comes a dark horse in the world of hits.
3. Lisztomania by Phoenix
The first time I heard this one was actually a version done by 5th graders of an elementary school in Long Island- the PS22 chorus. Check out their blog- http://ps22chorus.blogspot.com/!
Happy-go-lucky upbeat song by a French band. And I virtually repel all things French (especially some of those stinky cheeses). *oops*
C'est la vie. ;)
2. Half Of My Heart by John Mayer
Battle Studies! What an amazing album. Despite some people having issues with Taylor Swift as part of the song, I think her vocals are negligible. If it hadn't been mentioned that it's sort of a duet, I would've thought it was simply some background singers.
And finally we have...
1. Your Body Is A Wonderland by John Mayer
Just too wonderful! This song was on replay almost permanently. You might see this one appearing on subsequent monthly playlists as well- it's evergreen. You just can't go wrong with John Mayer.
I think it's fair to say that Mr. Mayer's voice was the soundtrack of my summer. :D
Throw in a lil bit of digital pizazz, both soft and loud alternative and we basically have what I like to call
My Summer Playlist.
