Twisted Mixtape Tuesday: The Soundtrack of My Summer 2014

twisted mixtape tuesdayWelcome to the return of Twisted Mixtape Tuesday.  Aren’t you excited?  I am! 

What is Twisted Mixtape Tuesday?  It’s a once a month opportunity to share the songs you love according to the chosen theme!  This week’s theme is the Soundtrack of Your Summer. When you’re done with my post, be sure to hop over to the link up on My Skewed View!

So what did I listen to this summer?  A quick look at my most played songs painted the picture pretty clearly.

This first one?  Because awesome!!!!

Happy-Pharrell Williams

The next one is just one of several other songs I’ve listened to constantly from the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack.

Spirit in the Sky-Norman Greenbaum 

Another sky related song that is wildly catchy…

Sky Full of Stars-Coldplay

I don’t know why but I’ve been totally stuck on this next song all summer.  Lady Antebellum is one of my favorite crossover groups.  This is the most played, but there are many other songs by this group that I listen to on a playlist pretty regularly.

Just A Kiss-Lady Antebellum

The last one is an oldie but a goodie.  At least compared to the others.  Fun.

I’m A Believer-Smash Mouth

Twisted Mixtape Tuesday: Awesome Mixtape 2

twisted mixtape tuesdayRecently I’ve been feeling a little blue.  Perhaps this is directly related to the lack of Twisted Mixtape Tuesday in my life.  Could it be?

This past week Jen and I both got the pleasure of seeing one of the greatest movies ever made:  Guardians of the Galaxy.  Unfortunately we didn’t get to go see it together, since we live a state away from each other (I know, cue the sad face.)  In case you haven’t had a chance to watch this movie, I certainly don’t want to give anything away, so I will keep my mouth shut.  I will however say this:  If you liked Avengers, you’ll love this movie.  In addition to it being downright funny and entertaining and downright awesome, it all centers around an awesome mixtape, rightfully called Awesome Mix, Part I.

This special edition of Twisted Mixtape is dedicated to this very movie.  What if I chose the music for the sequel, the Awesome Mix, Part 2?

Considering I write fan fiction with specific soundtracks in mind, this is hands down the easiest Twisted Mixtape Tuesday ever!  I can only imagine the plot, so I don’t have a lot of specific information to base my choices upon.  I can only believe that the Guardians planners will once again pick tracks that burrow into your brain and make you never, ever, ever cease to hear the songs over and over and over…

Tragedy-Bee Gees

If You Leave Me Now-Chicago

Don’t Fear The Reaper-Blue Oyster Cult

Rocket Man-Elton John

Superstition-Stevie Wonder

So now that I have finished this mix, I’m going to go listen to the soundtrack for the millionth time… What would you put on your soundtrack to the second movie?  Tell me in the comments, or better yet make your own post and link it up at My Skewed View!!
