I got a new computer months ago and have been putting off transferring my iTunes library over because it is such a big task. I usually use the 8tracks app and Pandora but I also love having fresh playlists. Since I got a new car (!!! more on that soon), I wanted to get my music in order since my new car has a fancy music system! I thought now would be the perfect time to do a playlist post. I am music obsessed. Any moment I can listen to music, I do. I love it all and literally crave new music and playlists. I feel like I work better with music, it makes a drive more fun, it makes a party a party... life would be the worst without music. I am all over the place with what I am currently loving but most are up beat and would make great workout songs!
This is the MOST amazing live version I've ever heard! I saw Coldplay live back in 2009 and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. Turn this one up LOUD and belt it out. This live version literally gave me chills it is so good. Not to mention, we have a fun but very odd family tradition that has come about over the years that makes this song even more special to me. Years ago, my cousin Paige started taking piano lessons and she learned how to play Viva La Vida when it first came out back in 2008. Every Christmas Eve my parents have a huge party which is So. Much. Fun. So much champagne, delicious food and all of our friends and family are together... it's really one of the happiest days of my year and I know everyone looks forward to it. Anyways, we sing Christmas carols as a few family members play the piano and it has become a tradition that Paige plays Viva La Vida and we all sing. This year we even threw up the lyrics on a screen so everyone could sing along-- even Grammie sings! I have so many great videos of my entire family in one room and we are all singing. It's hilarious but also amazing. Not to mention, as our family gets older and grows up, we've had quite the party moments-- as the night goes on, we've even gathered a few members of the family for a fun round of flip cup. Ohhh how I love Christmas Eve!!!
As always, I am always looking for new music so I would love for your suggestions of what you are listening to--especially since I am road tripping to DC and Annapolis this weekend! Have a fabulous day!
