Off the beaten track

My last playlist got good reviews from you guys, so here we go with a new one. This time I combined some electro/synth based tunes for you to enjoy. It’s the perfect weekend mix whether you’re just chilling or getting ready to go out. I hope you like it!

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!

A chilled out Saturday night, this hasn’t happened in awhile. Tonight requires some easy listening and I thought Kent‘s Socker would fit the mood perfectly. Hope you like it too.

Will be back tomorrow with last night’s outfit.

Enjoy your Saturday, folks!

Soundtrack for tonight

Tonight is my friend’s birthday party but due to the fact that my sweet boyfriend went out last night and woke me up at 3AM, I didn’t get enough beauty sleep. Therefore an injection of groovy 80’s tunes is needed to uplift the spirit for the night. Who knows, maybe I’ll get to go dancing, hopefully somewhere else than just in my own livingroom…

P.S. Since music is one of my main inspiration sources when it comes to what I’m wearing, I’m trying to figure out how to make a playlist here on WordPress. I tried the usual tricks with no luck, so I turned to the Indiedays IT team and they promised to work on it.  Hopefully it will be possible to post playlists without using Youtube since a lot of the good stuff can’t be found from there.

Stay tuned, my friends…
