So glad that Jen gave us an easy assignment for this week’s tape! Getting caught up on yesterday’s Trifecta Writing Challenge and making sure I busted out my mix tape would have been pretty rough on one lunch break if this thing didn’t write itself! But making a best of for the band of your choice is a cake walk!
Here’s the fun part! The rules of Twisted MixTape are as such: Try and create a 5 song mix based on this week’s theme. This week our theme is Best of Any Band, make a 5 song playlist of your favorite songs from one band and you’re done! Easy Peasy for our Holiday Weekend!
Take it easy, make it flow, remember in your mind you are creating your mixtape for a friend.
Shocker, I’m picking 311. So the big challenge here is to keep the list to (around) five. And the last time I made a best of playlist of 311 songs I ended up with 60 (and that was after struggling to cull some out). Today’s Best of 311 list will be sticking to a theme within a theme:
It’s Alright to Feel Good
All of these songs lift my spirit and put a smile on my face. They just make ya feel so good!
Notable lyrics: “You make me feel uncalm and I think I like it, make me think of a song that I could not write yet. Melodies create themselves, I’m just a conduit. You make my heart accelerate and I’m on to it.”
1, 2, 3
Notable lyrics: “It’s alright to feel good. It’s alright for nothing to be wrong. The deepest dream that we have could be tomorrow’s song.”
I’ve include this before, but it’s my favorite 311 song. I can’t leave it off the list!
Notable lyrics: “Oh livin’ is a journey. Waking, believing, running.”
Stealing Happy Hours
Like “Running”, this song comes from my favorite 311 album, “Transistor”.
Notable lyrics: “We’re snatching bits of time that no one else can seem to find.”
Do You Right
Notable lyrics: “Like I said it before, I’ll say it once more, knew you would make me feel so good. Wanna do you right. Can’t get enough, this is the stuff life’s about and it trips me up.” and “Bright mornings, days when I want so much, I want nothing; just this life and no more.”
My Heart Sings
Since this also belongs on a Matt and Melissa Love Anthem playlist, it obviously makes me immensely happy. Therefore, it is the perfect song to close out this happy playlist.
Notable lyrics: “My heart sings when I think of you, that is what you do. A melody that will settle me, that is just the thought of you.”
Stay positive & love your life!
