// “who cares if we are under thunder showers” // a rainy day playlist.

a82dd19a4de9b188cd32f7a7b960cbfa

I remember making one of these years back, but for the most part my tastes have altered somewhat AND new music has been released over the years. So here’s a new one.

(Link to 8tracks playlist below)

  1. Sick of Losing Soulmates – dodie. : The chorus especially always reminds me of a rainy weather.
  2. The Night We Met – Lord Huron : PERFECT for rainy evenings. 
  3. All I want – Kodaline : Ever since this song was released, it has been linked to rain, and with good reason.
  4. Heavy Weather – Billie Marten : Heard this one a few months back and I loved it. “The rain is ours, and we are lovers of / Heavy weather.”
  5. Cherry Wine – Hozier : I’ll make a playlist without a Hozier song? Not happening.
  6. Shiver – Coldplay (or better, the cover by Floriane Hu) : I like the cover more tbh, you can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlirYOKtkvw
  7. For Emma – Bon Iver : Listen, if you haven’t heard this song yet, you need to. Just close your eyes and listen to it.
  8. Half A Heart – One Direction – The single One Direction song I still love.
  9. Fearless – Taylor Swift : “There’s something ’bout the way the street looks when it’s just rained”. Queue the nostalgia.
  10. fallingforyou – The 1975 : The ambience is very rainy.
  11. You’re Beautiful – James Blunt : The tune reminds me of the sun coming after a drizzle, but the lyrics remind me of pouring rain.

“and then the sun came crashing in” // summer playlist from Sripurna on 8tracks Radio.

 

Reading List:

Summer mainly feels like YA contemporary novels, but I’ve tried to incorporate some other books as well.

  1. Summer series by Jenny Han – I am not a fan of this series personally, but I don’t think you can exclude this one from a “summer reads list”.
  2. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – Henrietta always feels like summer.
  3. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart – Not summer-y in a cheerful sort of way, but more like in a dark way.
  4. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – Self explanatory
  5. Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare – Of all of Shakespeare’s plays, this one is particularly summer-y.
  6. Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah – I remember reading this one summer years ago.
  7. The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – I call these books “quality YA”. It had one of my favourite books of all time. And basically all of Matson’s books are very summer-y.
  8. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee – Essentially gives off summer vibes.
  9. I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson – Have you seen the name of this book??
  10. Summer Days and Summer Nights edited by Stephanie Perkins – I haven’t read this one, but it is necessarily a collection of twelve short stories in summer.

Hope you guys are having a lovely summer! XO

For Heartsick Paramours: A Sad Song Playlist

So when Mrin-la @ Dreamer Of Improbable Dreams told me she’s making a sad song playlist, I’m like, Wait, don’t I have one too? ” We all have different definitions of sad, but why not see how much yours matches with mine?? 🙂

Warning: This playlist might cause mild to severe depression.

So for those who have been left behind, hurt and confused, here’s your heart’s melody:

1. Impossible: Shontelle

This song is just so TRUE. 😦

2. The One That Got Away : Katy Perry

The beat screams rebellious, but the lyrics cry sad.

3. Say Something- A Great Big World

This is a constant for all sad song playlists.

4. Last Kiss- Taylor Swift

One word- Ouch.

5. Fix You- Coldplay

I remember even my English teacher was on the verge of tears when she heard this song. Who doesn’t love this song?

6. Echo- Jason Walker

This song just makes me feel sooo lonely. 😦

7. Jar Of Hearts- Christina Perri

Boys.. *sigh*

8. Down- Jason Walker

I cry every time I hear this song. Its just so depressing.

Its not that sad, but I keep relating it to a person, and thus I hate (love) it.

Not. Gonna. Explain.

This song has got kind of old, but still..

15. Someday You Will Be Loved- Death Cab For Cutie

Imagine that the guy who left you is singing this for you years later..

16. Set Fire To The Rain- Adele

Some people don’t find this song sad, but dude just read the lyrics here:

17. Teardrops On My Guitar- Taylor Swift

I took this quiz, and it said that this song is MY Taylor song. You can try the quiz here.

18. Sorry That I Loved You- Anthony Neely

Lord, the last time I heard his song must have been 5 years back.. But its so beautiful.. :’-(

I know this is off topic, but isn’t Anthony Neely cute? 🙂

I love-hate this song.

20. We Are Broken- Paramore

RAIN playlist

Monsoon’s here….ummm, I guess.. Or rather, I hope.. You can never say anything for sure about the weather *sigh* I think its useless mentioning that I love rain because, well, who doesn’t? But of course, we like to think that we are the only people with poetic minds who truly love rain from the bottom of their heart…. You get my point. Sooooo here’s my ultimate rain playlist, which I listen to when it rains outside. Or sometimes when I really really really want it to rain.. 😛

1. Feels Like Rain- Kesha I love this song! Its perfect for rain!!!

2. Fearless- Taylor Swift

https://i1.wp.com/favim.com/orig/201108/12/boy-couple-fearless-girl-lyrics-Favim.com-121573.jpg

Taylor Swift.. Do I need to explain?

3. Can I have This Dance- Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

This song.. *wipes away tears* Its so beautiful..

4. City Lights- Umbrellas

 The feels!!!!!!!

5. Come In With The Rain- Taylor Swift

The song reads my mind, and obviously its perfect for rainy evenings..

6. Skyscraper- Demi Lavato

Its powerful, it is heart-breaking and most definitely sad. And rainy.

7. We Are Broken – Paramore

This isn’t a drizzle. Its a hurricane. 😉

8. If I Die Young- The Band Perry

Not directly related to rain, but I always associated it with light drizzles..

9. Set Fire To The Rain- Adele

This song burns my heart and dampens it as well.. ❤

10. Between the Raindrops- Lifehouse ft. Natasha Bedingfield

This is THE most perfect song for this rain playlist. Try hearing at night in the dark when its raining outside…

11. Blown Away- Carrie Underwood

This one is stormy, too stormy…*shivers*

12. All I Want- Kodaline

If you’ve heard this song, then I’m sure you’re already putting it in your rain playlist (atleast the mental one). I also heard the rainy version of this song on 8tracks. Its even better than the original.

13. Sad Beautiful Tragic- Taylor Swift

Again, there’s a rainy version which is amazing..

14. Tears and Rain- James Blunt

As the name suggests..

15. Storm- Lifehouse

*sobbing*

16. Let Her Go- Passenger

Mood-dampener :-/

17. She Will Be Loved- Maroon 5

This is more of an after-rain song, don’t you think??

18. Coming Home- Skylar Grey

Perfect ending to this playlist !! 😀

So, any additions? Suggestions?

What do you listen to when it rains??
