The title of this blog post, is an actual name for one of my Spotify playlists, it’s also become one of my favorites as well, I listen to that playlist more than any of my other playlists that I created and i’ve created a lot of playlists believe me. You may wonder why i’m talking about playlists here and well that’s because that’s the topic of today’s post, i’m not really sure why I wrote a whole journal entry on music playlists, but I did and i’ve just finished it as well, it’s not a long journal entry, but it’s a good amount i’d say and I want to write about it, hope that’s alright.
My reasoning on writing about playlists is because I was trying to figure out what to write and I couldn’t quite come up with anything, but I didn’t want to not write anything because as you may all know, I went a long time not writing on here and i’m trying to do my best to not go that long off writing again, even if what i’m writing about isn’t the greatest and so today the topic that I could think about was music and creating playlists. What kinda gave me the idea for it was, I was listening to a playlist of one of my favorite bands named PVRIS (it’s Paris but they have it where the V has replaced the A) I love that band, their music is something special, the writing style they use and just the songs itself off their albums are super incredible, they’re just AMAZING!!
The playlist I was listening to is called This Is PVRIS, it’s a Spotify created playlist with a few of their songs, if you want to check it out, I will leave it for you guys This Is PVRIS you should really give them a listen, they’re great, but anyway listening to their playlist made me want to write about music playlists in general kinda and so that’s what I did and I want to share my latest journal entry on it with you guys.
Original Journal Entry Title: Music (Oct 8, 2018)
Music gee where do I start!? Music just has a way of speaking to you doesn’t it!? You can literally find the perfect playlist for any mood you’re in or you can create your very own playlist with all the songs that you feel speak to you and your mood the most, which is my personal favorite. I use to create music playlists a lot, but for some reason never listened to them once they were created, I was just obsessed with creating them, it wasn’t until recently where I started listening to created playlists, including my own.
My favorite part about creating new music playlists, is well creating them, you would think that creating personal music playlists would be super simple, you have a few songs you want to add to a playlist, you add them, type in a quick title for it and that’s it right!? yeah not for me, whenever I create a new playlist, I put a lot of heart in it, that may sound weird to you guys, but creating personal music playlists is like one of my hobbies, I can’t explain it any other way. To me it’s not just about creating a playlist of your favorite songs.
I feel when creating a playlist with songs in it, it’s like telling a little story within those songs you add to your new playlist and with all stories there’s a title to it and i’m learning that titles are preeety much everything, because that’s how people become drawn and want to know more about it. Choosing the right title for something, is very special because your giving it a name, while also being given a chance to be creative and unique, you know bring something different to the table, when you give something a name (in this case a playlist full of songs a name) you give that playlist it’s own identity and when you give it an identity, you also give your emotions a chance to show and be felt, while also giving your playlist a chance to stand out.
Sometimes we’ll create random playlists just because and that’ll be it, i’ve done that a few times, it just a thing we do when listening to music and it’s normal to do, sometimes you just want a quick playlist, but for me most times I like to be a little creative with it and there’s nothing wrong with that.
(End Of Journal Entry)
P.S. There’s a little backstory on the playlist Jukebox Typewriter, but i’ll probably explain that some other time, I don’t want this blog post to be super long, however I just want to say how much I love the title Jukebox Typewriter. Every time I look at it or listen to the songs off the playlist, I just become very excited and very proud of myself for that name, so yeah it’s one of my favorites 😀 I hope you’re all well and that you all have a goodnight.
All The Love ❤ ❤
