Tunes For A Rainy Afternoon

UPDATE!

I posted this last year on my Tumblr blog, but since I am still obsessed with this playlist, and since I just discovered 8tracks, I figured I would repost it, share it with my new wordpress followers, and this time include the actual playlist! This playlist has never let me down. It’s a keeper.

———————————————————————————————–

I created this playlist recently as a going away present for a group of friends. These songs have been a huge part of the last few months for me and I wanted to share them with the people I love. I can’t take credit for finding them….they are all songs that were used at some point or another (except for the Jason Robert Brown one which I just happen to love) in the wonderful CW show “Life Unexpected”. Seriously, go to itunes, download them, make a playlist and let them work their magic.

Schuyler Fisk – Fall Apart Today

I remember Schuyler Fisk from The Babysitter’s Club movie. When that movie came out I didn’t even know she was Sissy Spacek’s daughter, let alone an incredibly talented singer and songwriter. I came across this song during an episode of Life Unexpected and was immediately moved by it. Check out her album The Good Stuff….it’s full of gems.

Sunflow – I Wish You Love

I was so happy to come across this song. Once again, I heard it on the brilliant show Life Unexpected! Rarely have I heard a song that can instantly fill me with such giddiness and joy. The lyrics are so simple yet the message is so deep and huge. A definite ‘wake up in the morning and play this song to start your day off on the right foot’ kind of song.

I Wish You Love from Sunflow on their album Under The Stars. Take a listen.
