Off the beaten track

I have stated a few times before that in my life music and style go pretty much hand in hand: a certain song or the mood of a song can define what kind of ensemble I end up pulling out of the closet for the day. Many times I’ve wanted to transmit my inspiration sources in the form of music, but a bunch of Youtube videos at the end of the entry would feel kind of silly, especially when most of the tracks I’d like to play can not be found from there. Hence, I’ve just ended up naming my entry titles with song lyrics or something of the kind.

After multiple requests from my behalf, the required plug-in for a play list has finally become available on Indiedays, and I got the pleasure to be the first one to test out of this new feature. If this works out, I was thinking about making this a weekly habit, if time permits. My plan is also to put something current and those forgotten gems on your platter, hence the title name “Off the beaten track“.

Today’s dark but dancey playlist is a prelude to the weekend which will include dressing in black (no surprise there), meeting up with friends, attending a fashion show, and hopefully good times.  Let me know what you think!

  1. Haha started to wonder if the music I like goes in hand in hand with my style since when I just listen random dubstep and gangsta rap most of the times 😀 Great playlist!

  2. Again spammers here, “DawsonLorene”.

    But just BTW, Google Reader extracts the tracks on playlist and they’re directly playable/downloadable, no need for flash.
    Not that it would be hard anyway, but even more convenient since it requires no action from users now 🙂

    1. Yeah I know, I just deleted like 50 spam messages on my older entries. Damn spammers!

      Hmm.. I guess I could try that as well but this wordpress player works pretty well for now. 😉 Thanks for the tip though!:)

  3. Apua, rakastuin kyllä aika voimakkaasti sekä New Orderin Crystaliin, M83:n Kim & Jessie -biisiin sekä Depeche Moden But Not Tonightiin ❤ Nyt pitäis päästä tanssimaan, ja siis minähän en yleensä ikinä tanssi! Lisää näitä musiikkipostauksia kun näistähän löytää uusia lempibiisejä 🙂

    PS. Ja sori kun nyt kommentoin vielä tämmösiin vanhempiin postauksiinkin…

    1. Todella mukava kuulla, että näistä tykätään ja kiva, että uusia lemppareita on syntynyt! 🙂 Pyrkimys olisi kerran viikossa laittaa musapläjäys tulemaan, mutta viime viikon olin sairaana, joten se jäi siksi silloin väliin. Lupaan jatkossa ryhdistäytyä, koska musiikki on lähellä sydäntä ja tärkeä osa mun tyyliä. Niin ja aina saa kommentoida myös näihin vanhempiin postauksiin!!!:) Luen kyllä kaikki kommentit ja pyrin vastaamaan asap.
