Spring 2016 Playlist

Last semester, I wrote about making a playlist of the music I had downloaded throughout the semester. The idea behind this little project was to see how my tastes in music changed as I went through the semester. Ideally, by the time I graduate in three years, I’ll have eight playlists detailing my journey through college.

I downloaded 48 songs this semester, three more than I did last semester. Here are some of my favorites (in order of date downloaded):

  • Love Yourself x Roses by Enoch – Starting this list is a mashup up of The Chainsmokers’ Roses and Justin Bieber’s Love Yourself. This mashup perfectly blends the two songs, laying Bieber’s vocals over the melody and beats of The Chainsmokers.
  • Mean by Taylor Swift Can’t have a list like this without including some Taylor Swift. It’s hard to believe this song was released back in 2010. Two things I love about this song is that it has some of that country sound that brought Swift to stardom and has a great message about dealing with critics.
  • Viva La Vida by Coldplay –  Another classic. This one is two years older than Mean, being released back in 2008. There not much to say about this song. It was just bouncing around in my head one day and I had to add it to my library.
  • Hello (Marshmello Remix) by Adele – I first heard this song back in March at a rave that I went to. When the DJ, Brillz, dropped this, everyone just lost their minds. It’s such a good remix, I can’t help but dance a little every time I listen to it.
  • Inside Out by The Chainsmokers – This is the latest song from The Chainsmokers. After their hit with Don’t Let Me Down earlier this year, expectations were high. And those expectations were met. Trust me when I say, you have to listen to this song.
  • The Horizon is Ours by Underground Sound – This acapella masterpiece was composed by Daniel Wolfert., a graduating senior of my fraternity, and is performed by his acapella group, Underground Sound. If you read my last post, then you know how much this song means to me.

So there are just a few of the songs I downloaded this last semester. What songs caught your ear this semester?
