Winter 2018 Calling Your Name Playlist pt. 2

So I’ve been hella busy, stressed out, and in pain over the last few weeks. Therefore, I decided to take a little break from blogging. We’ll now resume the regularly scheduled end-of-year programming on the blog. Oh, yes, I know, there was no November Favorites this month so I’ll be posting a combined November & December Favorites during the first week of January 2019.

If you recall two winters ago, I made a fun playlist of songs named after people. Shortly after posting it, I remembered so many other songs that would have made a great addition to the playlist. I kept adding to the list for the last two years (which has become quite lenghty so prepare for a part three soon), and here are the ones I picked for the Winter 2018 Calling Your Name Playlist pt. 2!

Enjoy!

1. Sarah, Rüfüs du Sol. For a dramatic winter evening in front of the fireplace with snow making dew on the windows.

2. Stumbling Mary, Exale & TEGA. Watch out there—we don’t need anyone stumbling around in the snow.

3. Elliot, Roosevelt. ”Elliot, Elliot, look out.”

4. Lafayette, BIBLES. A tune for the rare occasion when you get a chance to go outside before sundown to see the clear skies.

5. Pamela, Brain Tan. When you find yourself whispering in the middle of the night…

6. Ophelia, Monakr. Relax, and just let the rhythym take you.

7. June, THE WLDLFE. “I’ll be your Johnny if you’ll be my June.”

8. Carolina, Harry Styles. Time to break out the guitar and spend some time learning how to play this one all winter.

9. Silvia, Miike Snow. “I don’t know Silvia.”

10. Ashley, Lido & Santell. A smooth R&B vibe to keep you warm this winter.

11. Eddie (Oliver Nelson Remix), EVERYWHERE. Soaking up the winter sun with this one.

12. Anthonio (Berlin Breakdown Version Remastered), Annie. For the moments when winter feels like it’s moving in slow motion.

Stay warm!

With that out of the way, let’s just jump right into my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for October 2018.

Fall 2018 Halloween Costume Party Playlist

This fall, I’ve decided to wait until near the end of October to bring you a Halloween Costume Party Playlist!

The following playlist can serve as both entertainment for your Halloween party and a list of generic costume ideas, as each song title is the name of a common costume.

Enjoy!

1. Ghost, VHS Collection. Starting this party off with a smooth ghostly rhythm.

2. I Am Not A Robot, Marina and the Diamonds. Try to convince the computer CAPTCHA that you’re not a robot while in costume 🤣

3. E.T., Katy Perry. “Could you be the devil, could you be an angel?” No. An extra terrestrial.

4. Monster, Lady Gaga. Try not to eat anyone’s heart out tonight, okay monster?

5. Oh Devil, Electric Guest ft. Devin Di Dakta. “Oh, devil, I know you’re afraid…”

6. I Can’t Be Your Superman, Skylar Spence. Uh, yeah you can! No one can stop you from being superman tonight. Literally.

7. Mannequin, Britney Spears. Practice those mannequin dance moves in the mirror before the party and blow everyone’s minds!

8. King, Grades. Enjoy being treated like a king all night.

9. Queens, Rulers. Grab your girl group and dress up like the queens you know you all are.

10. Rocket Girl, Lemaitre ft. Betty Who. “You can call [her] rocket girl.”

11. Cheerleader, Omi (Felix Jaehn Remix). Did you find yourself a cheerleader at the party?

12. She Wolf, Shakira. Beware of the “she wolf in the closet.”

13. Doctor, the bird and the bee. Let’s just hope no one needs a doctor by the end of the night because chances are they’re just in costume.

Have a happy and safe Halloween 2018!
