Tune In Tuesday (12) – Random Playlist 1

Tune in Tuesday Random Playlist Icon

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature by Greads.  May is Random Playlist month!  Turn on iTunes and hit that shuffle.  Below are some mixes I made from a recent shuffle session!




1. “The Beat Goes On” by Britney Spears –  I always liked this song as a throwback to the 1960s and 1970s.  That must be because it’s a cover of Sonny & Cher‘s The Beat Goes On.

2.  “College Kids” by Relient K – Always always always loved this song.  Even in high school.  It’s all about straying from the norm, which was a comforting message.

3.  “Vessels” by Freelance Whales – Instrumental track.  Mmm, banjo.

4. “Golden Years” by David Bowie – This man has such a voice!  I enjoy jamming out to his music.

5.  “Proctor Rd.” by The Matches – A Band in Hope is such a powerful album.  My friend Tracey introduced me to this band and I’ve loved them ever since.  Sadly, they broke up a few years ago! Cries.

I couldn’t find a video of this song that wasn’t a live-shaky-cam.

6.  “Birmingham (We Are Safe)” by David Crowder*Band – This is one of those happy dance songs.  The musicianship of DC*B songs is so great.  I love that they throw bits of electronic noises into their songs.

7. “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?” by She & Him – They play songs that make me want to just lay on the floor all day.  Good zone-out music!  I love Zooey’s voice with M. Ward’s musical stylings.

    1) Your header is freaking adorable and fantastic.
    2) My sister used to be obsessed with Britney Spears when we were younger so I listened to her quite a bit. I did enjoy this song quite a bit :] Also, it reminds of Pepsi, for some reason…
    3) I freaking love that Relient K song! I always thought I’d love college so this song was just kind of funny, but then I ended up hating it and this was more like an anthem for me 😛
    4) I really like David Crowder Band. Some of their songs just make me want to dance :]

      1. Thank you!
      2. Oh man, the Pepsi commercials.
      3. Yayyyy
      4. yesss i love the dancing songs.

    I listened to a lot of Relient K in high school. It brings me back! Lol.

    Nice varied list. Always enjoy Bowie and David Crowder. The only She & Him album I have is the Christmas one. I need to get some more. My post is here (although I posted it before I knew it was random month. I’ll do a random post next week):

    • elizziebooks May 1, 2012, 9:07 pm

      Thanks! Ah, I love the Christmas album :]

      Ooh I like Doctor Who. I recently got a poster that says Keep Calm and Wear a Fez.

  • Kate's Tales of Books and Bands May 1, 2012, 10:29 pm

    So much fun randomness in this post today! Everything from Britney to Relient K (love them!!!) and even She & Him is absolutely fabulous.

    • elizziebooks May 1, 2012, 11:16 pm

      Thanks! YESSSS all the good musics 😀

  • Adam @ Hitting On Girls May 2, 2012, 5:57 am

    You had me at Relient K, then you won at She & Him.

    “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here” is a good song, but I always liked “I Thought I Saw Your Face Today” better. I got to see them perform two years ago at Forecastle Festival here in Louisville. I maintain that Zooey Deschanel winked at me.

    Also, banjos = cool.

    • elizziebooks May 2, 2012, 9:44 am


      Both are great! As well as Don’t Look Back. AHHH I want to see them live! I WANT. I bet that was the greatest wink of all time! 😀
