true confessions.

i've been "working" on a spring playlist for nearly as long as it's been spring. as the days move closer and closer to summer i have every intention of actually completing this little project. while i have a general issue with finishing what i start, part of me can't help but wonder if this problem is a little larger. see i also had planned to share this with a friend of mine whose musical tastes in many ways mirror mine. upon hearing how enamored i've been with of monsters and men, she introduced me to some other really great tunes she was sure i would enjoy. and she was right on. so sure are we that our tastes would align, i had no hesitation in promising to share my intended playlist with her upon its completion.

as i started the list it was filled with real quality stuff, from the previously mentioned to the avett brothers and delta spirit. i was envisioning the kind of music you'd want to hear as you drive toward the beach, wondering if i could fit some vampire weekend into the mix. it was going to be a mellow driving mix.

there was just one problem... i also wanted to reflect the spring of 2012 and the music i was listening to during this season. and you know what song i really want to hear when i get in the car.

and that's my true confession. as much as i like to pretend i have some standard* of musical excellence... there are times when all i want to do is dance around in my car like a teenage girl who just got her license. and while i recognize i should probably not try to combine too many musical elements into one cd, you better know that there is a mix coming up next with carly rae jepsen written all over it.

what's your true confession?

*please note i do in fact have a standard, but that's a post for another day.
