Tune in Tuesday–Random Playlists Edition



Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger over at GReads! to share our love of music and maybe discover someone new.
This month the theme is random playlists. I kind of took it literally and I’m posting an entire playlist SmileI know that’s a lot of videos so either go grab a drink & snack and sit back for bit to watch or pick just a few songs to check out.

My husband made me a playlist last week when I was having a particularly bad week while also needing motivation to finish my elliptical machine workouts.

The songs range from silly or venting to calming and then hey! keep your ass moving girl!
The playlist name was inspired by a t-shirt we found on line that said "Be Calm & STFU".

I present to you Kevin’s “Breathe, Be Calm & STFU” playlist:

Jamiroquai – Stop Don’t Panic / Good song to get you moving.




Alexi Murdoch – Breathe / This is my kind of music and one of my favorites from the playlist





Be Calm – Fun / This is one of Kevin’s favorite bands at the moment. They sound so much like Queen. Great song for the elliptical!





STFU – Mary Magdalan / This song is pretty out there and WARNING graphic language but it’s a great song for venting and exercising lol





In Time - The Revolution: Rich File / I guess this song is to help me cool down and catch my breath lol Love the creepiness of it though




Real Life – Alonestar Ft. Ed Sheeran / It features Ed Sheeran!!! I love him so yay for more Ed.




Panic Switch – Silversun Pickups / I always listen to this song for motivation when I’m working out so he added it to the playlist





Breathe In Breathe Out – Mat Kearney / This is my favorite and a good cool down song. The words are so beautiful. Makes me tear up a little.




What are you listening to this week? Any good songs I should check out?

  14. I can always count on your for good music. I don't know Jamiroquai. I just listened to that Alexei Murdoch album yesterday. They play him in yoga a lot. Love Silversun Pickups too. Substitution is my favorite song although I also love Panic Switch.

    Stop Don't Panic is one of the ultimate 'get moving' songs.
