Coffee and Heels Mix Tape vol. 1

This is a new feature on Coffee and Heels and I'm still a bit wary about posting my playlists since what I listen to is so personal to me: listening to music is for me similar to what praying is to some people, so I don't know how comfortable I am about sharing "my" songs and talking about how they make me feel. But music is such a huge part of my life that sooner or later it had to show up on Coffee and Heels. Remember: I generally listen to old music, so don't expect to find the latest MTV tunes here (rare exceptions excluded). I'm also quite mainstream and not apologizing for it. Great songs have become classics for a reason.

Anyways, here's a list of songs that I currently love a lot. This playlist is special to me because it has all four of my all-time favorite bands: Queen, Nirvana, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Muse (big surprise, bands I never talk about on this blog, right?) All of the songs speak to me about freedom in some way and feeling oppressed in another, like I Want to Break Free. We suppose that many songs are about relationships, when in reality they can be applied to other things as well: feeling like you're not living to the fullest, feeling like a fish out of water, feeling suffocated or like something's missing. Like you should be happy and satisfied but you're not. I love Sappy because it was written twenty years ago and still applies to so many people today. And I love the intro in the Tell Me Baby video, with the wannabes speaking about their goals and dreams and where they hope to go. I love the whole "there's a slim chance that you're going to make it, but go for your dreams anyway because you deserve it" vibe.

I'm currently listening to:

  4. Nirvane e Red Hot: la mia adolescenza! Dei Red Hot però prediligo decisamente il loro primo decennio, dai primi '80 fino al '92 (con Blood Sugar Sex Magik)...
