Run Oregon Tunes: Matt and Marilyn’s top tracks of May 2017

I went through a spell in late May where I wasn’t listening to much new music. I got stuck on a few podcasts and I started going through some old albums of mine. It wasn’t until June that I realized I had yet to really check out the final two release weeks of the month prior. Boy, am I glad I did. My first 6 tracks were cemented in early and featured some rap/hip-hop from Logic, Kendrick Lamar, and Machine Gun Kelly, as well as some pop tunes from Paramore, Perfume Genius, and Harry Styles. Yeah, I know…THAT Harry Styles (it’s a good song!).

  1. Everybody by Logic
  2. Slip Away by Perfume Genius
  3. Hard Times by Paramore
  4.  Go for Broke by Machine Gun Kelly [feat. James Arthur]
  5. HUMBLE. by Kendrick Lamar
  6. Carolina by Harry Styles
  7. Coloring Outside the Lines by MisterWives
  8. Why Oh Why by Levon
  9.  Love You to the Sky by Erasure
  10. Driftin’ by Matisyahu

The final four tracks were found in my search to round out my top tracks. While I haven’t gone above 9 tracks in any of my previous months, all of these really stuck with me. MisterWives brings some female fronted power-pop, Levon brings a little country/folk vibe, and 17-album strong Erasure brings a great synth pop track (that whole album is real good). I was considering leaving off Matisyahu, but this track is such a good closer to an album, that it just made sense to have it cap off May’s playlist!

Marilyn’s most listened to tracks for May 2017 on Spotify

  1. Life Of The Party by All Time Low
  2. …Baby One More Time by Ed Sheeran
  3. Carousel by Flobots
  4. Most Girls by Hailee Steinfeld
  5. Thunder by Imagine Dragons
  6. Undefeated by Incubus
  7. Sorry for Now by Linkin Park
  8. Wednesday Morning by Macklemore
  9. No Vacancy by OneRepublic
  10. Gold Digger by Vitamin String Quartet
  11. Torches by X Ambassadors

I’ve got a few artists who’s latest music has totally been drawing me in (Linkin Park, X Ambassadors, and imagine Dragons), and who doesn’t love a acoustic or classical cover (new takes on old songs are MY JAM). Wednesday Morning was released in 2016, but so much of the song’s message is so relevant right now.
