Fall 2013 Playlist

fall playlist

Summer is over, guys. As much as you want to hold on to your tank tops and surf boards, autumn is here. It’s time to bring out the rake for all those leaves.

Fall is characterized by rustling leaves and jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows and creepy mansions. Therefore, I present to you a fall playlist of 15 songs that will make you feel haunted.

1. Spotlight, Mutemath: Many of you might remember this song from the first Twilight movie when Bella notices everyone in the school parking lot is staring at her and Edward Cullen as they walk into the building. The melody created by the chorus of ‘ahs’ in this song will send chills up your spine. In a good way.

2. Meet My Friends, Gold Fields: This Aussie band will send you into a frenzy with the sinister guitar rifts featured in this song! The lyrics are very dark as well, as they sing, “I saw faces, I saw the fear.” Look away!

3. Entertainment, Phoenix: French band Phoenix uses some creepy sounding synth melodies for this track in order to entertain you. So, did they succeed?

4. I Belong to You, Muse: This song is also featured in a Twilight movie, New Moon to be exact. How comfortable are you with the notion of belonging to Muse?

5. Bones, MS MR: Pretty Little Liars fans might remember this song from the episode where the girls attend Detective Wilden’s funeral. Will you obey MS MR’s command to “Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone”?

6. Bittersweet World, Ashlee Simpson: Got some skeletons in your closet? Well maybe you should let them out so that they can dance to this song!

7. Not in Love, Crystal Castles ft. Olin and the Moon: The notoriously dark electronic band Crystal Castles teams up with Olin and the Moon for this anti-love track. The synth might actually relax you. Might.

8. One Life Stand, Hot Chip: The ever so clever Hot Chip creates a frightful track using a play on the concept of a “one night stand.” Now, the real question is, do you want to be Hot Chip’s one life stand?

9. Insomniatic, Aly and AJ (78Violet): Aly and AJ recorded and released this song before changing their name to 78Violet. I cannot be held responsible if this song keeps you up at night.

10. Howl, Florence and the Machine: The beautiful yet creepy violins in this song make this one of Florence’s masterpieces. So, be careful young, lovers.

11. Heavy Heart, Canon Blue: The discordant synth intro of this song is enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Enjoy!

12. Polish Girl, Neon Indian: I don’t know who she is but Neon Indian is taken by this Polish girl. How quickly can she take you?

13. Shoot the Water, Austra: Between the piano melody and the lyrics, I can’t decide which is creepier. I think the lyrics win, especially when she sings, “I want your blood, I want it in my hair.” Eww.

14. Bloody Mary, Lady Gaga: She won’t cry for you. She just won’t do it. Beware, the deep male ghost-like voices that sing “GAGA” in the bridge are quite alarming. And scary.

15. Are You Afraid?, Rooney: After all of this haunted stuff is said and done, are you afraid? Did I actually give you a scare? Rooney wants to know!

Have a happy and safe autumn season 2013!

What Really Happened to Robsten

Premiere Of Summit Entertainment's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" - Arrivals

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have broken up.

Yup. AGAIN.

The two began dating around the end of 2008 when the first movie of the Twilight Saga premiered. This trend of becoming a real life couple off-screen is not new, as we have seen it happen with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens of the High School Musical franchise.

Not even Zanessa made it.

In 2010 the producer of Eclipse, Wyck Godfrey, stated “The thing that I think about is, ‘Oh my God, I hope they stay together.’ Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It’s like, wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together.” To be honest, I hoped the same. The chemistry would be off if they broke up during the filming of the Twilight Saga.

The couple attended premieres together, celebrated birthdays together, and won best kiss at the MTV Movie Awards for three years in a row.

Inseparable, right?

Think again.

In July 2012 there were even rumors about them tying the knot but Robert Pattinson denied them.

Later that same month, on July 24th, 2012 we learned of KStew’s cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders, her costar in Snow White and the Huntsmen. Shame on the both of them! Sanders is a married man!

So they broke up. And then RPatz forgave her and let her back into his life. They began living together in March 2013.

She PROMISED Robert that she would never see or contact Sanders again.

This weekend they broke up again, and for a while we were uncertain as to why.

I thought it was because of an article I saw a few weeks ago about Kristen getting mad at Robert because they were living in his mom’s house. It wasn’t so much just that, but the fact that his mom wasn’t letting them have any privacy…

Or sexy time. Whichever way you want to put it.

But no. That wasn’t it. Kristen broke her promise and Robert found text messages on her phone to Sanders. ON ROBERT’S BIRTHDAY.

Gee, Kristen. Couldn’t have thought of a better birthday gift??!!

Sigh.

I guess forever is only in the Twilight Saga.

Since the break up Kristen has been leaning on Taylor Swift for support. Never even knew they were buddies. I guess heartbreak brings us girls together.
