Playlist of the Week

For tonight's blog post, I was initially going to post my playlist of Nine Inch Nail's latest 2 ambient albums Ghosts V and VI however that go sidetracked when I started listening to Your Summer Rewind, a playlist Spotify created for me based on my listening habits from last summer. 

According to the playlist, I listened to a lot of cheesy pop, mixed in with some synthpop. I will not apologize for my taste in music that summer 😂. Setting aside the global pandemic, my taste in music is no less diverse. Here is a playlist of my favorite songs this summer 2020 Summer Playlist .

Cheesy pop/rock songs asides, I spent the summer of 2019 listening to a lot of darkwave/synthpop Autumn (US band), Graveyard Club, Ego Likeness, and Them Are Us. My listening habits from last summer isn't totally horrible 😜.

Songs to Check Out:
"Persona Non Grata" by Ego Likeness
"Beginnings" by Autumn (US band)
"Witchcraft" by Graveyard Club
"Grey Water" by Them Are Us

Cover songs that are better than the original version

This post was inspired by a tweet by Charlotte Clymer, an LGBTQ activist I follow on Twitter. She had tweeted out this afternoon that she will never accept Natalie Imbruglia's version of "Torn" is a cover. Well it got me to thinking about cover songs that are actually better than the origina versions.
