Michael’s Mixtape: The Star Wars One

I don’t know about you, but I am just basking in the glory that is Star Wars Week worldwide. I’ll be seeing Episode VII: The Force Awakens on Thursday and drinking galactic themed drinks at a bar that’s turning itself into the Mos Eisley Cantina from A New Hope. Yep, I have no shame in my Star Wars geekdom.

Even Spotify is getting in on the game, matching users with Star Wars characters by their taste in music. I’m not totally thrilled being Anakin, but I do love me plenty of punk rock.

I dig the lightsaber on the bottom, not so much the new Fall Out Boy they included.

Since it all finally set in that this movie is happening and I’m actually going to see it (so since Saturday night), I’ve been surfing Spotify for Star Wars appropriate music.

Michael’s Mixtape – The First

A week ago in San Diego, a friend that I don’t get to catch up with often enough asked me about the music I was listening to these days…

For a second I blanked, but then everything came rushing to my head like a waterfall. So I felt it would be fun to log the music I’m listening to and share it with all of you. It varies between new and old music, but it’s all good to me. Music is a very subjective thing for people, and that’s what makes it very cool to me.

While I’m sharing this first Mixtape list here (with music accompaniment of course), I’ll also have a public Spotify playlist for you to check out as well. 

Here goes nothing…

1. “Multi-Love” – Unkown Mortal Orchestra

2. “Big Decisions” – My Morning Jacket

3. “Firestone” – Kygo

4. “The Wolf” – Mumford and Sons

5. “Shake and Tremble” – Django Django

6. “Trying” – Bully

7. “The Best Room” – Modest Mouse

8. “Sunshine on My Back” – The National

9. “Bad Dream” – The Mowgli’s

10. “Sedona” – Houndmouth

11. “Don’t Wanna Fight” – Alabama Shakes
