Occupation: Researcher & Future Physician’s Assistant. I do science.
Mixtape Name: Want/Need
1) When You Were Young by The Killers
I could have very easily picked whole albums from The Killers since they are my absolute favorite band since 2004 (I know every lyric to every song they have made & I am fully aware that it’s a sick, sick obsession). When You Were Young, Tidal Wave, and This River is Wild might be my ultimate favorite songs by The Killers.
2) Dead Man’s Party by Oingo Boingo
UGHHHHH I love Oingo Boingo. I’m convinced I was born in the wrong era due to my adoration of 80s music. So, the lead singer of Oingo Boingo was Danny Elfman and he’s pretty much composed all of the best soundtracks and TV theme songs known to man. Check them out.
3) Lonely Town by Brandon Flowers
Yeah, had to throw Lonely Town in there. Brandon Flowers is my idol and this song is fantastic. Totally about a stalker but, hey, who hasn’t been in that position before. Ah, unrequited love why doth thou hurt me so. (Someone please punch me in the face after this.) *** link in document ***
4) Something to Believe In by Young The Giant
Young the Giant is another favorite band of mine. They just released a new album called Home of the Strange and I can’t recommend it enough. The lead singer has the voice of an angel.
5) Beast of Burden by The Rolling Stones
Beast of Burden, um classic. I will never get sick of this song. I love old rock, too. I wish I could have thrown some Hendrix and Foreigner in this mixtape but there isn’t enough room! I’m also missing a ton of Bowie songs that I love.
6) Coming Over by James Hersey, Dillon Francis & Kygo Remix
If you don’t follow Dillon Francis on snapchat, then you are sorely missing out. He and his friends that make up the DJ group Phantoms are insanely hilarious and I would give my left arm to hang out with them. Also, I pretty much can fall in love with anyone that quotes Dumb and Dumber, too. And this song is lit.
7) Is this Love (Bob Marley Cover) by Allen Stone
Allen Stone is a beautiful human being. I talked to him after one of his concerts because I showed up late (my nephew was being born so kind of couldn’t miss that) anyways. Nicest man ever, got a picture with him and everything and then we talked about our English bulldogs and how they’re the best dogs in the world. Yes, they are. If you disagree, then I hate you.
8) Do I Wanna Know by Arctic Monkeys
Do I Wanna Know; I can do my angry strut to this song. Man, if looks could kill – I would be in jail. Also, Sam Smith does a killer cover of this song- definitely worth a listen.
9) Concrete by Tom Odell
Off his second album, Tom really gets me in the feels with this song. So cute and emotional.
10) Warm On A Cold Night by HONNE
HONNE just released their LP and there are some great tracks on there as well. Warm on a Cold night is one of those songs you can blast on a chilly night with all of the windows down and cruise around, just falling in love with all of the lights of the city.
11) Cry Baby by The Neighbourhood
Love this song and how cool the lead singer’s voice is. It’s like feminine but not and super attractive and sexy. I don’t know I’m weird.
12) Return of the Mack by Mark Morrison
Had to include my favorite karaoke song! I either sing Return of the Mack or Lovers and Friends by Usher, Lil John and Ludacris.
