Playlist: The Kindling

For those who haven’t heard, Texas is ablaze tonight. It’s a good night for staying in and listening to some music.

And a good night for another playlist.

Okay, so I broke out of the mold this time. Last time, my list resembled the American Top 40 Countdown. This time, there are no hit songs. I think this is easily the most emo playlist I’ve compiled to date. And by “emo,” I mean awesome.

So here is my latest compilation, “The Kindling.”



1.  The Ballad Of Mona Lisa – Panic! At The Disco

This “picturesque” song timestamps the list.

2.  Ruined Everything – Automatic Black

Don’t you just hate it when that happens??

3.  Left With Alibis and Lying Eyes – Emery

Just another day at the DA’s office . . .

4.  Awake And Alive – Skillet

A tautological song — or is it?

5.  Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt – We Are Scientists

Another day at the bank . . .

6.  The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows – Brand New

Gotta love these emo songs and their titles.

7.  The Good Left Undone – Rise Against

This might just be my favorite song on the list. Very cathartic.

8.  Suffocated – Orianthi

Remember to breathe when listening to this one.

9.  You Got Me – VHS Or BETA

That guy’s voice is amazing.

10.  The Shake (Awful Feeling) – My American Heart

Not to be confused with The Shimmy, which feels good.

11.  Make It Stop (September’s Children) – Rise Against

A choir swaying alongside blaring guitars? Play it on repeat.

12.  Rules Don’t Stop Me – We Are Scientists

But men in uniforms with night sticks do.

13.  Everything Your Breathing For – Parlor Mob

Is it just me or does that sound like Jack White?

14.  Blueside – Rooney

So mellow . . . and relaxing . . . *yawn*

15.  Ghosts – Dexter Freebish

This song will haunt you.

16.  All Good Things (Come To An End) – Nelly Furtado

What a fitting song to end with! I couldn’t resist.
