Music for hot weather.
This is a playlist about summertime and humid sidewalks at night and flashing neon bodega signs and drinks in the back gardens of bars and cold showers and air conditioners humming and dripping and salted caramel melting things and beat up sandals and grass stained legs and long rides home on the hot subway with thighs that stick to the seats.
Saturday getting things done music.
If you’re not listening to this playlist, what are you doing with your life?
Electric Light Orchestra - Strange Magic
For some reason whenever I’m sad I get the urge to listen to one song over and over again. It’s never the same song, and it’s almost never a particularly sad song. Usually it’s something sort of neutral that I never cared about much before. Tonight it’s this one, over and over.
Going to a midnight showing of Jurassic Park at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema tonight. John Williams scores the music of my soul.
Ben Folds Five - Philosophy
"And it’s really not that you can’t see
the forest for the trees.
You’ve just never been out in the woods alone.”
Katie Costello | Cassette Tape
"Things would be much easier, and it would really save some time
if you knew my favorite color and my favorite kind of pie.”

Basia Bulat - A Secret
A quiet little song for a cold night.
The Detroit Cobras - It’s Raining
Penny and the Quarters - You and Me
I’m embarrassed to admit how many times I’ve played this while dancing alone in my apartment.

Acid House Kings - This Heart is a Stone
I love when I discover songs that were secretly written about me.
"They say you only bring heartache, but I know you brought a bottle of wine."
The Lucksmiths - Guess How Much I Love You
"You know I’m thinking of you, in the bookstore, in the laundromat."
The Smiths - Girlfriend in a Coma
I’ve been listening to this on repeat today.
