Mixtape Monday (Jul 28)

Originally I was going to try to make a mixtape with songs from superhero movies seeing as how I watched Iron Man 2, Thor and am currently watching Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. But when I was looking up songs, they were just orchestra music and I figured people would get bored with that. So since it’s been a storming off and on today, I figured I make a mellow/acoustic kind of mixtape today. Enjoy…

Summer 2014

“We all have songs that remind us of specific periods and events in our lives. Twenty years from now, which song will remind you of the summer of 2014?”

I don’t really have too many. Mostly because most of the songs on the radio right now are crap. No really, they are. And nothing has been that big (in my opinion) during the summertime for the past (at least) three years. At least not any good songs. So here’s my top 10 favorite songs that have come out this summer so far…

  • “Classic” – MKTO
  • “All About That Bass” – Meghan Trainor
  • “You & I (Nobody In The World)” – John Legend
  • “Counting Stars” – OneRepublic
  • “Really Don’t Care” – Demi Lovato
  • “Something Bad” – Miranda Lambert ft. Carrie Underwood
  • “Come With Me Now” – KONGOS
  • “I Adore You” – Adore Delano
  • “Secrets” – Mary Lambert
  • “Superbad” – Jesse McCartney

I know, I usually do mixtapes on Mondays but a mixtape fit for this post.
