I’m the kind of person who used to bring my headphones to the library to study. I crave background noise. I need it. I can’t function when it’s too quiet.
Different occasions call for different kinds of music, so the music that inspires my work ethic is not the same music that I’d rock out to when I hit the gym.
When I want to blog, relax, or even just unwind after a long day, here are the tunes that will be playing in the background.
I Saw – Matt Nathanson (and pretty much everything else he’s ever written)
Blackbird – Glee Cast Version
The Luckiest – Ben Folds
Collide – Howie Day
Go – Hanson (and everything mellow they’ve ever done, too!)
Upside Down – Jack Johnson
Chariot (Stripped Version) – Gavin DeGraw
Everything’s Right – Matt Wertz
Why Georgia – John Mayer
Wonderwall – Oasis
Ahhhh. I feel more relaxed just from making that playlist.
What do you listen to when you need to unwind? Do you need it silent to work, or do you like some music in the background?
