Monthly Mixtape // Petrichor

Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by Eve @ Twist in the Taile and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages (check out their blogs!!). Each month they come up with a one-word prompt as inspiration for a playlist.

petrichor

petrichor, noun: a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

I absolutely love the word ‘petrichor’ and its meaning. The songs I chose I find really relaxing, positive and/or hopeful in their messages, which is how I imagine petrichor would sound as a mixtape.

I love that last time Hayley Kiyoko dominated my playlist, now it’s Troye Sivan’s turn

How do you imagine petrichor would sound like? Any songs popping into your mind? Did I include one of your favourite songs? Let me know in the comments!

 

Monthly Mixtape // Schwarmerei

Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by Eve @ Twist in the Taile and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages (check out their blogs!!). Each month they come up with a one-word prompt as inspiration for a playlist. I meant to do it last month, but since I was so out of blogging I completely forgot about it.

schwarmerei

schwarmerei, noun: excessive and unbridled enthusiasm or sentiment

Sooo throughout the past few weeks I’ve just been adding songs that I thought fit the prompt to this playlist – which means I got 37 songs on here lol. It got a bit out of hand haha. It was SO HARD to choose though! All of these songs are such bops and definitely shout ‘schwarmerei’* to me

* It’s a really cool word but SO HARD TO SPELL

What song immediately pops into your head when you hear ‘schwarmerei’?* Do you listen to any of the songs on my playlist? Are you participating in Monthly Mixtape? Let me know in the comments!

* Or read the definition of it anyway haha
