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!

Winter 2016-17 Calling Your Name Playlist

winter-1209851_960_720

So, this winter playlist is going to get a little weird.

I’ve been toying with the idea of making a playlist of songs named after people for a while. The only season it really fit in, to me, is winter.

You know how in movies there’s sometimes a girl in the forest during the winter shouting someone’s name into the void, hoping she’ll hear a response echoing back? That’s the kind of vibe I wanted to capture with this playlist.

Enjoy the 12 songs on this winter 2016-17 playlist!

1. Josephine (Alfa Mist Remix), RITUAL ft. Lisa Hannigan. Some serious sensuality going down right here.

2. Virginia Wolf, mAsis. For those lonely winter nights when you just want to be alone.

3. Genghis Khan, Miike Snow. Jealousy, anyone?

4. For Elise, Saint Motel. “You need a spark, a light in the dark, to get you out of your head and into your heart.”

5. Sweet Ophelia, Zella Day. Time for some deep reflection.

6. Stephen, Kesha. You better call her, Stephen. None of that 72 hours nonsense.

7. Roman, Housse de Raket. “What have you done?”

8. Ramona, Night Beds. This one’s easy on the ears.

9. Geronimo, Sheppard. I don’t recommend you jump into the waterfall. It’s cold, and that’s dangerous.

10. Jenny, the bird and the bee. “Where are you, Jenny? Don’t you know that I am calling on the telephone?”

11. Hey Maria, Klangkarussel. Here’s a cool little foot-tapping number.

12. Randy, Justice. “Get yourself together.”

Stay warm this winter!
