Acoustics.

Posted in jams by krisyee on February 24, 2010

HAPPY HUMP DAY.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE acoustics. I’d be the girl that would buy the Dashboard Confessionals Stripped cd (okay, I was that girl that bought that cd…but I haven’t listened to it in a very long time. In fact, I don’t know where it is).

Enjoy Bay Area local artist, Gabe Bondoc.

Tiffany Eugenio from Canada (thanks to Abi for this one)

Just because he’s cute with short hair…not so much with long hair. Justin Nozuka.

Nothing beats Alica Keys…

And my fav song, Maybe Tomorrow [acoustic version] by Stereophonics w/ Kelly Jones as lead singer

Alicia Keys Stripped

Posted in jams by krisyee on November 23, 2009

I absolutely love it when artists come out with “stripped” albums or when they perform live with acoustic instruments. Not to mention their amazing voices. Iheartradio.com brings us Alicia Keys stripped with “Empire State of Mind II” and “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart”.

Thanks to Duke for the link!

Sleepy Time Playlist

Posted in jams by krisyee on October 8, 2009

Back in March I wrote a post called “Sexy Time Playlist“. Basically it was a playlist of sexy ass songs, baby making music, whatever you’d like to call it.

Now it’s time for a sleepy time playlist. It’s kind of hard to say what’s good for this category considering everyone is into different types of music. But for me, sleepy time music is usually slow, acoustic, or instrumental. There are some of the occasional up beat songs and motivational songs, but some can be kind of sappy.

Check out some of these songs and suggest your own if you’d like!

  • Strange and Beautiful-Aqualung
  • This Womans Work-Maxwell
  • She Will Be Loved (acoustic)-Maroon 5
  • The Scientist-Coldplay
  • Trouble-Coldplay
  • Again-Lenny Kravitz
  • The Rain Don’t Last Forever-Hope
  • Colorblind-Counting Crows
  • Kissing You-Total
  • Flightless Bird-Iron & Wine
  • Country Livin’-Esthero
  • Six Feet Underground-Sneakerpimps
  • Midnight in a Perfect World-DJ Shadow
  • Come Over-Estelle
  • No Other Love-John Legend ft Estelle
  • Levater-Yael Naim
  • Pretty Wings-Maxwell
  • Soundtrack 2 My Life-Kid Cudi
  • Stars and Boulevards-Augustana
  • At Your Best-Aaliyah
  • Red Light Special-TLC
  • Streetlights-Kanye
  • Sideways-Citizen Cope/Santana
  • Kissing You (Romeo & Juliet)-Des’ree
  • This Love-Craig Armstrong
  • Let Me Sign-Robert Pattinson (yes…from TWILIGHT)
  • Sad Eyes-Bat for Lashes
  • The Blowers Daughter-Damien Rice
  • Cupid-112
  • Butterflies-Alicia Keys
  • Dead Presidents 2-Jay-z (i know, random)
  • Maybe Tomorrow (acoustic)-Stereophonics (one of my all time favorite songs…EVER)

I know I have more but it’s my bed time soon.

What songs would be on your sleepy time playlist?

Sexy Time Playlist

Posted in jams by krisyee on March 19, 2009

I really suck at remembering what songs artists sing and vice versa and if you tell me the name of a song, I most likely won’t remember it unless I actually hear it. So I’m going to need some imput on this one.

I like to make different playlists for my ipod or whatever. For example I have one called “driving music” for when the sun’s out, my shades are on, my car windows are down and the sun roof is open. Basically rangin from Summertime in the LBC by Dove Shack to On a High by Duncan Sheik. Then I have my “chill music” w/ artists like Esthero, Sigur Ros, and Raphael Saadiq. And you can’t forget the high school playlist! (I’m still working on that one…any suggestions let me know!)

For the longest time I’ve been telling my friends I was going to make a “sexy time playlist”. I know it sounds bad, but don’t you ever hear a song and are like “damn, this song is sexy!” or some people like to call it “baby making music”. Everytime I hear a song like that I think “I should make a sexy time playlist!”. So here I go.

This is what I have so far.

  • Freak Me-Silk
  • Red Light Special-TLC
  • So Anxious-Ginuwine
  • Bump and Grind-R.Kelly
  • Come Over-Aaliyah
  • Freakin’ You-Jodeci
  • Stroke You Up-Changing Faces
  • Bed-J.Holiday
  • Say Yes-Floetry
  • Anywhere-112
  • Feenin’-Jodeci
  • Makin Good Love-Avant
  • Nobody-Keith Sweat
  • Knockin Da Boots-H-Town
  • Falsetto-The Dream
  • Anytime Anyplace-Janet Jackson

There are a couple that I’m not too sure about. But tell me what you think and give me some suggestions on what I should add!

Thanks to Marc for helping me remember songs! And Emeraldi…but you gave me too many lovey dovey songs that I just had to reject. Haha
