Weekend Playlist

Weekend again… time flies sooo fast… have you recorded them? I’ve been trying my best to do that by keep posting in my blog.

Anyway, I’m going to post something about music today. Gosh, it has been almost two years when I decided to leave my ‘band girl’ kind of life. Yes, I was in a band with some friends who have big interest in music but little time to play. One day, we decided to form a band in those limited time and named us Seven Ate Nine; because we always make schedule to meet at Seven but everyone always arrive at Nine.  It is true, we are busy people, my drummer is a doctor, my guitarist is a university lecture, my keyboardist is a bank employee, my bassist has several bands to maintain, while my partner in vocal is an IT master student and last but not least, me is a web content writer who always at war with deadlines.  However, I didn’t know how, but we always made it to gather on Wednesday evening to play some music and join some events available thought we play for free.

Unfortunately, no more Seven Ate Nine now, because the doctor got a medical clinic to run, a university lecture has his own IT consultant office to manage in his hometown, the bank employee got transferred to different city, the IT master student is now a lecture in different city as well, and me got stuck in the middle of nowhere surrounded by big plantation belongs to Sri Lanka company.

So, here I am, enjoying music from my playlist I made myself because no more ‘band girl’ kind of life but I would never be able to leave music away from my life.

My Weekend Playlist:
The Clash at Demonhead (Brie Larson) – Black Sheep
OASIS – Stop Crying Your Heart Out
The Last Shadow Puppets – My Mistakes Were Made for You
Plain White T’s – Lonely September
The Dark Jokes – Yellow Menace
Arctic Monkeys – I Bet You Look Good on The Dancefloor
Vampire Weekend – A Punk
Two Door Cinema Club – Costume Party
Panic! At the Disco – I Write Sins Not Tragedies

Call me weird, my playlist is much way weirder.

The Clash at Demonhead is not a real band; it is a band from movie Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
Brie Larson as Envy there looks cute and evil at the same time. However, a friend told me that if The Clash at Demonhead really is real and then she will be the big fan, well so do I, I guess.

It is funny actually when I should talk about OASIS’ Stop Crying Your Heart Out. I’ve heard the song several times but I fell in love with the song when PrisaCuteDevil sang it in her YouTube channel. So, since then this song never leave my playlist.

Speaking of The last Shadows Puppets and Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner is the reason I hear their songs. If you ask me who is my favorite musician? Well without a doubt I will say Alex Turner. So, if I could I will add all of his songs in my playlist but I also got bored fast, so it is better to make some mix of music.

From Plain White T’s, my favorite song is actually Hey There Delilah but right now, my mood prefers Lonely September though it is still June but this time I will follow what my mood wants.

The Dark Jokes is an indie band from Scotland. I know this band from Facebook because I friend with the drummer, Paul Dennington, and several times I listen to their music, I think world should give them more credits; their music is really good you know. Try listening to their music and I guarantee you will like it. It is actually why I really love indie music; they give us something refreshing to hear, The Dark Jokes is one of them.

I know Vampire Weekend from a friend and their music is unique and once again refreshing if compared to all the commercial attributes the big bands have these days. Furthermore, I once hear about them from movie It’s Kind of Funny Story; a must watch movie actually. In that movie, there is a conversation between Noelle and Craig about concert they want to go and Noelle suggested Vampire Weekend’s.

Call me weird but since Ron Weasley, I think read-headed British boy is cute. So, here I am listening to Two Door Cinema Club because the main vocal is read-head British boy. Furthermore, they are indie, so yeah you know my opinion about indie band. They always be able to catch my attention because while you are in indie label you are free to explore what kind of music you want to play, no matter what market told you.

If you ask me why I like Panic! At The Disco especially I Write Sins Not Tragedies? Just read the lyric and listen how Brendon sings it and then you will know why I like it or maybe just me but try to listen to it first and give your opinion. Honestly, besides Alex Turner and Liam Gallagher, I think Brendon Urie is the next band vocalist whose voice I like the most.

So, what’s your weekend playlist?
