This song has been on repeat for the last couple weeks, just ask my roommates. And I’ll tell you why. This song has all my favorite components of good music.

This is The Last Time - The National

I wanted to bring back the Local Natives, Kasier Chiefs I started off towards the beginning of the playlist. I have learned with my friends that The National is either a hit or a miss. I just love the sadness in Matt Berninger’s voice, no matter how upbeat or loud the song is, you can always hear the sadness.

I Dare You - The xx

I’m a hopeless romantic. I think love is a social construct. I fall in love with every new person I meet. And yet I seem to always question why we feel it so necessary to find someone to love. Maybe it has to do with the things that I was exposed to growing up. Maybe it’s all in my head.

Either my name should be Ruby or they should remain this song Ashlee. These past couple days I've been at my all time low. There's nothing really that triggered me, it just happens sometimes. And guess what I'm the type of person who love wallowing in her sadness. And maybe you like to do that too, so that's why you're here. But the best thing about this song is that, yes you can wallow to it, but at the same time it tries to lift your spirits.

All over You - LEISURE

Memories are a crazy thing. It’s like one minute it’s all happening so fast and next thing you know it’s been 7 months. But it still feels like it was just yesterday. You can still see it so clearly. Your heart still races. And find yourself smiling at nothing and everything.

How could I not put this song in this playlist. It fits so perfectly, from its style to its name! A phrase I have coined to describe this song is - vibe song. My definition of a vibe song is a song that has all the right elements for your current state of mind.

Dear To Me - Electric Guest

This song really makes me think about all my friendships, especially the ones that I don’t enough effort into them when I should. I really want to dedicate this song to all my close friends because they don’t know how “Dear” they are to me.

My favorite part of this song starts at 2:24. I turn it up so loud in my car specifically at that part because the combination of the trumpets and his voice is so beautiful and it just describes what I'm feeling.

To me the track of the week I post is very personal. I overthink it. I try to decide which track fits best with the concept of the playlist, if the placement of the track is the right one. I pretty much drive myself insane, but I love it.

Let’s be honest we’ve all played and listened to love songs even when we don’t have anyone in mind. And I’m guilty of one of my friends pointing that out to me recently. She said “all you listen to are songs about love”.

I still search for your eyes in a crowded room because I miss the way crinkled on the sides when you smiled or got too high. Ironic, because the name of this bad is called Hate Drugs.

I just got back from Lollapalooza and Honne was the very first artist I went to see. It was one of the most incredible moments, being able to experience this song live and to share it with so many other people who felt as passionate about the song as myself.

One of my favorite television series is One Tree Hill and it’s definitely because I identify with one of the characters so much, Peyton Sawyer. She was a young woman growing up in Tree Hill who loved music so much that her storyline always linked back to her love for music. So in Peyton’s words “Sometimes things find you when you need them to find you. I believe that. and for me it's usually songs lyrics (Peyton Sawyer, One Tree Hill)”.

The lyrics are emotional, romantic, but at the same time honest. You can hear the longing behind Dev’s airy voice, which is accompanied by an upbeat guitar riff. Throughout the song you can hear and feel everything Dev is trying to portray because you can sense the hopelessness and distress.

Isn’t it frightening how quickly time passes? I have a hard time grasping the fact that I’m about to graduate from college because it feels as if I was just a freshman in high school not to long ago.

There’s been so many times when I couldn’t decide if the memory I was thinking of was real or just a dream. It just goes to show how lost in my mind I am all the time.
