the ‘right now’ playlist

it’s what’s keeping me company during my days and nights right now.

Human | The Killers

‘Are we human, or are we dancers?’
I wonder this all the time.


I Think I’m in Love Again | Kat Dahlia

I think I’m in love again/
(In my head, yeah, you’re in my head)/
I didn’t think it could be true/
Let alone that it would be you/

I find that I am falling in love with myself in a new way.
Such a surprise.


Whispering | Alex Clare

It’s a haunting song for when you’re falling apart.


10,000 Emerald Pools | BORNS

Under water/
Time is standing still/
You’re the treasure/
Dive down deeper still/
all I need is you

How my husband sees me. Who wouldn’t want to hear that all day?


100 Years | Five For Fighting

This song always reminds me to be glad for where I am and what I have.
And that more beauty is always on its way.


Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down | Fall Out Boy

(Yeah, Fall Out Boy. I’m not apologizing for my music tastes anymore. They’re eclectic. Dig it or quit reading.)

We’re going down, down in an earlier round/
And Sugar, we’re going down swingin’/
I’ll be your number one with a bullet/
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it/

There is nothing that describes me better some days.
I also find the chorus sexy as hell.


My House | Flo Rida

Welcome to my house/
Baby, take control now/
We can’t even slow down/
We don’t need to go out/

A little ass shakin’ heat for the winter.


Wildfire | Michael Murphey

This is, simply, my favorite song from the 70s.


Skeleton Key | Dessa

by now it’s just a simple trick/
not much to see/
you hear the tumblers catch and click/
then turn the key/
but I’ve found work and welcome everywhere I’ve been/
cause everyone’s got someplace they wanna be let in/

don’t waste your worry on me/
I always find what I need/
come and go as I please/
I’ve got my skeleton key/

If you don’t know, Dessa, you need to. She is a poet and weaves the most delicious music and lyrics into magic. Get her album Parts of Speech and sit yourself down for the entire ride.


Sweet & Low | Augustana

This song is helping me feel my way into a new aspect of my self.
See more here.


Sugar, How You Get So Fly | Sugar Fix

She’s something mystical in colored lights/
So far from typical but take my advice/
Before you play with fire do think twice/
And if you get burned don’t be surprised/

Another way to describe me.


Let’s Dance | David Bowie

My husband and I love to dance, and this one let’s us get close and sexy.


If I Lose Myself | One Republic

You can feel the light start to tremble/
Washing what you know out to sea/
You can see your life out of the window tonight/

If I lose myself tonight/
It’ll be by your side/

I’ve lost my footing in the past week, and regained it.
But only with the help of dear friends who know my soul and love me up, no matter what.
