Play It Again, Sam

Darlings, whether we feel compelled to admit it or not, we are all well acquainted with that song. The one that instantly makes us want to sashay up and down the sidewalk like models on the runway, garnering bizarre glances from those around us which go completely unnoticed as we are, unquestionably, lost in the music.

Perhaps All Time Low said it best in the song Hello Brooklyn with those eight simple words… “Heels on the sidewalk begging for a backbeat.” After all, life is a runway; and, as you have heard me say time and time again, every moment in life deserves a soundtrack. Therefore, please welcome Play It Again, Sam, Café Fashionista’s newest weekly series devoted to…you guessed it, petite playlists designed to get you through whatever craziness life throws your way. Happy listening, kitty cats!

I’m Not Your Toy - La Roux
All the Right Moves - OneRepublic
And the Boys - Angus and Julia Stone
Bathroom Gurgle - Late of the Pier
Skeleton Boy - Friendly Fires
The Story I Heard - Blind Pilot
Undercover Martyn - Two Door Cinema Club
Take It Like A Man - Dragonette
Giving Up the Gun - Vampire Weekend
Seasons May Change - Afternoon Naps

What song has left you with the urge to say Play It Again, Sam this week, my loves?


Fashionably yours!

Hm, how about some old Aerosmith? Mama Kin maybe, or Train Kept A Rollin, to keep us rolling with energy into the new week?

Mine are so cheesy and generic; it's absolutely embarrassing. Train's "Hey, Soul Sister" and, unfortunately and REALLY embarrassingly, Ke$ha's "Tick Tock" are the currents. I know, I know. Although "We Used to Be Friends" by the Dandy Warhols is another constant feel-good.

Maddy said...

I must be out of the loop because the only song I recognize from your playslist is One Republic's! Lol! Well, I'm glad you've added this new feature! I need some new tunes for my iPod ;o)

I woke up with Sade's "King of Sorrows" stuck in my head. I think it's because we watched her concert DVD on Thursday :o)I'm also curious about Lady Antebellum's CD. Especially since I loved their song at the Grammy's. It was the 1st time I heard it!

Alicia said...

oh i love it! can't wait to download some of these on itunes. and i love the saying "life is a runway!" ;)

Mara said...

Sara Lynn said...

I have actually only heard of Vampire weekend so I will have to check all these out when I get home!! I love finding new music to listen to, great while studying.

:D

SabinePsynopsis said...

What a great idea! I always need help and advise with music, but a 70s disco song will make me jump up and dance anytime!

Dancing Branflake said...

Haha! For the past three days I've been singing the Beauty and the Beast song where Belle is running on the hill. Maybe it means something subconsciously but I just can't get enough of that song.

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

This is so perfect, I'm in such a music mood lately, even posted a song on my blog earlier today. I will have to think about this because it's time for an upbeat sassy song to walk to!

xo Mary Jo

Jen said...

I hope you're feeling a little better, Erika. If not, you should listen to this soundtrack - guaranteed to cheer you up! I love Friendly Fires and Vampire Weekend.

At the moment I have Yellow Card's Paper Walls on repeat. I just love it.

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

What a great idea for a post.. I suck at discovering new music these days. Thanks for the help... I'll be checking these out asap :)

ellie said...

I've gotta look for some of those songs on the playlist. Right now, I'm hooked on Vampire Weekend's latest and the Soundtrack from Youth in Revolt. There is a short instrumental ditty on their that really keeps me inspired when I'm writing certain scenes..of course, todays' scene well, that song did not play in my head. But maybe soon. Maybe soon.

Feel better soon!

Bonnibella said...

I'm really into Adam Lambert right now because it's great to workout to!

Rick said...

Flattery will get you everywhere, including a spot in my Administration as "Social Secretary" (currently vacant by the way). 'Fashion Night Out' Parties on WEEKLY basis? Really? What would these be like. Well, you suggested it. The position is yours if you want it. But be careful about saying yes too quickly. You'd have to write one guest post telling fellow fashion addicts what the parties would be like! :-)

Excellent post. Love this blog. Also, I would add another song by La Roux (In for the Kill). "Play it again, Erika! :)

Mimi said...

Very cool play list! Nothing like a classic to get you in a good mood. Have a great week!!

Fashion Therapist said...

Hello Erika, thanks for sharing, and thanks for your thought on AnnaLynne, I agree with you on her style, she is a very lovely lady.

Hope your week started well.

xx lue

S.Elisabeth said...

Ooh I haven't heard of any of these songs, but I'm off to check them out!
Hmm the song that makes me want to "Play it again, Sam" would have to be Glamour Bitch by Sara Love (such a random song, I know!) or anything from the Dirty Dancing Havana Nights soundtrack!

bananas. said...

i think i'm really going to like this new weekly series. good runway music is the best and i need a soundtrack to go with my strut, ya heard!

I love that Friendly Fires song.

BarceloMIA said...

En Vogue - Free Your Mind!!!! Always makes me jump!!! Rock n Roll baby!!! xxx

Inspiration in Italy said...

Erika I love love love this!!! I read your interview when you stated that music is your main inspiration and I couldn't agree more. Music is completely a motivation for style, mood, dress, and just life in general! It is difficult to chose just one song, I think the Smiths & Queen give me that feeling a lot! :)

Hope you are having a great week dear friend!
