Letters to Donna: Tinay’s June 2014 Playlist

As promised, and a feeble attempt to revive my wordpress account, I present to you… my June playlist:


1. Skin – Boy

I remember you and Darlyn liked this when I played it during our outing in Nagarao.


2. Riverside – Agnes Obel

I heard this one from an episode in “Revenge.” Try to watch it, their clothes are sooooo pretty. Story’s good, too.


3. Every Night – Imagine Dragons

You know you’re up for a good song when you see IMAGINE DRAGONS as the artist.


4. My Fault – Imagine Dragons


5. Sun – Sleeping At Last

Just recently discovered this one searching for TFIOS soundtrack. I have not watched the movie yet and have no access to a cinema here in Jeddah, so SHUSH about the movie.


6. Stay With Me – Sam Smith

I have my friend Farhana to thank for this one. I just love this song so much.


7. Budapest – George Ezra


8. 500 Miles – The Proclaimers

What’s not to love?


9. Pulses – Karmin

They got George Takei to do the intro for their video, that’s how awesome Karmin are (Oh myyyyy). Nick Noonan is a treat for both the ears and the eyes. Too bad he’s already engaged to Amy, the other half of Karmin. Then again Amy is uber awesome, so I guess I’ll try to be happy for Nicky. I’m in love with them both T.T .


10. Try Me On – Karmin

Catchy. Very Catchy.


11. Tidal Wave –  Karmin

What? Another Karmin song?! Yes, I’m obsessed with their Pulses album.


12. Gasoline – Karmin

I know. Just listen.


13. Lucky – Kat Edmonson

Darlyn really liked this one. I hope you like it too.


14. I Feel Better – Gotye

Jeff’s entrance number at the Iloilo Dance Off 2014, I forgot the exact phrase you used.


15. Can’t Stop – OneRepublic


16. Come Home –  OneRepublic


17. Feel Again – OneRepublic



18. Wolves & Moons – Holly Arrowsmith

My lullaby.


19. Machild – Eels

Yours was “Your Ex-Lover is Dead.” This was mine.

Please watch Futurama episode “Game of Tones.” Manly tears will be shed. It’s where Khea and I discovered the song.


20. Little Bird, Little Bird – Elizabeth Mitchell

From another heart-wrenching episode of Futurama. WTF FUTURAMA, YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE A COMEDY! *ugly cry*


21. Up With The Birds – Colplay

This is the song I told you that makes me think of those tribute videos they play at funerals. Okay, I made myself sad.


22. Wicked Way – Ben Taylor

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH for introducing me to this song. I wish they made a better music video though.


20. Sail – Awolnation

This ain’t their official music video, but I like this better.


21. Vox Populi – 30 Seconds To Mars


22. Hurricane – 30 Seconds To Mars


23. Kiss You – Ed Sheeran


24. All of the Stars –  Ed Sheeran

From TFIOS soundtrack. The feels.


25. Clarity – Zedd ft. Foxes


26. Once Upon A Dream – Lana Del Ray

Listen to it in the dark… with the windows open… and the wind a-blowin…


So far, those are the songs I’ll be listening to on repeat for this month of June. Maybe I’ll add new ones, hopefully from your soundtrack. Lookin forward to your post!
