JenFul Playlist – April and May 2014

Photo by Mark Seton / by NC-ND 2.0 CC

Every two months (or in this case three months) I post playlists of the songs I’ve been listening to recently. You can listen to the playlists in the Spotify players below if you have Spotify installed. If not, the playlists are listed in text below that. As always, you can follow me on Spotify here and view my other playlists here. I’ve commented on a few highlights below.

Comments/Highlights

I haven’t been listening to as much new music lately. I’ve felt a bit swamped with work and haven’t been taking the time to look through the “New Music” emails from Spotify or to spend the evenings playing Candy Crush Saga with music videos on in the background.

That said, some of my favorites from this two month stretch are Gabrielle Aplin, Churchill, and KONGOS. It’s nice to see Beirut has a new release out too. I liked their song Postcards from Italy which was played on WOXY (R.I.P.) in 2006 or so back when that station was [...]

My Chemical Romance – Fake Your Death

After this song crawled into my brain and refused to leave I decided to Google the band, which I’d heard of but never listened to before. That’s how I learned this song is “a eulogy for the band” because it’s the last one they wrote before breaking up. Way to ride the tail end of a phenomena, Jennette.

Blondfire – Life Of The Party, The Airborne Toxic Event – Hell And Back, Tegan And Sara – Shudder To Think

I have yet to see The Dallas Buyer’s Club, but the movie soundtrack is pretty good. Three tracks from it [...]

JenFul Playlists – December 2013 and January 2014

I’ve decided to post playlists every two months instead of every month since they were cluttering the archives. I also suspect these are posts that I care more about than my readers, but I’m going to do them anyway because I like tracking my music listening habits. And if I introduce just one reader to their new favorite song it is totally worth it.

Royal Teeth – Heartbeats

There are two other version of this song I’ve heard, one by the song’s writers, The Knife, and the other by Jose Gonzalez. Strangely enough, it took me years, YEARS, to figure out that Jose Gonzalez was singing the same song as The Knife because that’s how completely different their versions are. This [...]

JenFul Playlist – October and November 2013

I’m a bit behind on my playlists because I ran out of levels on Candy Crush Saga. Let me explain. Lately I’ve been getting a lot of my new music recommendations from “Epic.Awesome.Videos” on the Palladia TV Channel. To my utmost shock they play three hours of music videos every weekday morning. Crazy, right? I had no idea TV stations still played music videos. So, I set a season pass for the show and in the evenings I would watch it while playing Candy Crush Saga on my phone. Honestly, I spent most of my time fast-forwarding because they’d play several of the same videos every day, but there was enough new material sprinkled in to keep me interested. Or at least, interested enough to listen as I played Candy Crush Saga on my phone.

Then I beat Level 455 of Candy Crush and ran out of levels. Yes, they have up to 515 levels if you play on Facebook, but it’s really hard to play Candy Crush Saga [...]

Rachel Platten – Nothing Ever Happens

This song sums up the story of half my life which is as the lyrics say, “Nothing ever happens if you stay in your room.” Well, reading and TV watching and the occasional blog entry happen, but I know that’s not what she’s talking about. “Make a little space and get out of your own way.” Very true, Rachel.

MIKA – Popular Song

I saw the video for this song on TV. (Yes, the Palladia channel airs three hours of music videos every weekday morning. I was shocked too.) Anyway, when it got to the chorus I realized it sounded almost exactly like the song “Popular” from the musical [...]

Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache that Wouldn't Go Away Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir

Jennette Fulda tells stories to the Internet about her life as a smartass, writer, chronic headache sufferer, (former?) weight-loss inspiration, and overall nice person (who is silently judging you). She was formerly known as PastaQueen. You can contact her if you promise to be nice.

  • I'm going to stop working now and go collapse in the corner, thanks. (Freelancing: So glamorous.)
  • My TimeWarner DVR is stuck in slow-motion mode. So yes, I can watch American Ninja Warrior, but it will take 4 hours.

Thanks!
