What are you listening to?


I always love to know what music people listen to…for some reason this really fascinates me.
I guess it’s because I think music choices say a lot about a person…what do you think?
So I thought it might be fun to show you the playlist I’m listening to right now!
This is my mellow-ish playlist!


1.  Promise by Ben Howard (By far one of my most favourite songs right now!  Love.  Sigh.)
2.  A Thousand Years by Christina Perri (I know, I know…Twilight…I still love Edward.)
3.  What Was Going Through My Head covered by Great Lake Swimmers (Original is Grapes of Wrath)
4.  You’re the One That I Want covered by The Lennings  (I first heard this on Parenthood.  Such a good cover.)
5.  Rave on Sad Songs by Jason Collett  (Good ol’ Canadian lad!)
6.  Blood Bank by Bon Iver  (Bon Iver is one of my favourites ever.  Ever.)
7.  Skinny Love by Bon Iver
8.  On My Way Back Home by Band of Horses
9.  Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People  (I love that my 2 year old sings this!)
10.  Set Fire to the Rain by Adele  (Love her.  Love her voice.  Love all her music.)
11.  Be Here Now by Ray LaMontagne (Really I love anything by Ray LaMontagne)
12.  Sarah by Ray LaMontagne
13.  No One Moves, No One Gets Hurt by Bedouin Soundclash

    I mostly just listen to CBC Radio 2 whenever I’m in the car. I always like their diversity on the station, and they play so much great Canadian Music that I would never know about otherwise. And a lot of the same stuff you’re listening to!

    I love all your picks! We LOVE Ray Lamontagne too! Adele is great. We also love Jason Mraz, Matt Costa, Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, Norah Jones, Bruno Mars and any oldies(Motown) like the Drifters, some Sam Cooke. Okay, enough of me. I love music 🙂

    I am listening to Adele, Goyte, and of course I always listen to 90s music because it makes me happy (especially while cleaning house!!).

    Oooh I am excited to “try out” some of these songs for myself. Gotta say, haven’t heard of many of them. My fave Adelle song is Set Fire to the Rain as well and that is totally on my playlist. Another favorite now is the Glee version of Somewhere Only We Know and I have also have been liking some Plumb stuff, the “mellow” songs she wrote for her children.
