Playlist Thursday – Refreshed for 2013

Another Thursday, another Playlist! This week, the theme is to post something old, current and to consider that is new on your playlist. For a fresh start to the new year!

Something Old

Artist: Sally Oldfield
Title: Woman Of The Night
Side Note: The 80s! Not a song I listen to on runs necessarily but when shutting off on the couch, watching the snowflakes fall, drinking a cup of hot tea. I found this in parents CD collection by chance and think it`s “interesting” – still not sure if it`s a good interesting or not.
Quotable: “It`s dark in the street but it feels like // Heaven is all around me!”

Something Current

Artist: Maddi Jane
Title: Barricade
Side Note: I`m obsessed with this little girl. Heck, she`s just a child! And her voice is just amazing, don`t you think? Just put this onto my current go-to running playlist. (Erika, you could like this girl!)
Quotable: “So no matter how far, whatever it takes // You will make it through the day, I`m your barricade”

Something to Consider

Artist: Bill Lovelady
Title: One More Reggae For The Road
Side Note: As crazy as it sounds, I have this song in a Reggae Mix that came on during a recent run when I had my music on shuffle. Hours later I found myself humming the chorus. So much positive energy, don`t you think?
Quotable: “Gonna sing it to you before I go // Everybody!”


Guest Post: Oldies but Goodies – 50`s & 60`s

Dear Readers, today I have a very special guest post for you from one of my favorite bloggers and the kindest girls I met ever since starting this blog. If you don`t know her yet, you should go and check out Erika`s blog right now! But before you leave, please have a look at the selection of oldies but goodies she created for you and me! My personal favorite is the last song, what`s yours?
Dear Erika, thank you very much, muchas gracias! 
Hello there, I am Erika from Myrecoverydiary and ever since Anna started posting songs on her blog, we’ve started sharing music through our posts. Anna complimented my taste in music (which I think is a debatable compliment haha) and asked me to appear as a guest in her lovely blog and recommend some music from the 50’s and 60’s, so here it goes:
“Runaround Sue” by Dion and the Belmonts
This song will make you sing no matter how bitter you claim to be or how much you despise catchy tunes. I looooooove “Runaround Sue”, it makes me smile every time I listen to it and I’m sure most of you are already familiar with this gorgeous tune and if not, you will fall in love immediately. According to Wiki, it was recorded and released in 1961.
“White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane
When I first listened to this song, I must admit I didn’t like it that much but it eventually grew on me. Grace Slick’s voice is so unique it sticks and the lyrics are both weird and sassy; they were inspired by Alice in Wonderland. This song is a gem, enjoy.
“My baby just cares for me” by Nina Simone
Nina Simone couldn’t be absent from this list and this is by far one of her best songs. Released in 1957, it’s cool and jazzy vibe remains timeless.
“Runaway” by Del Shannon
I saved for last one of my favorite songs ever. This song will have you singing, dancing and smiling the whole 2:20 minutes it lasts and you won’t be able to get it out of your head for months! It is a “wo-wo-wo-wo-wonderful” song indeed, hope you enjoy it.
