Summer is just around the corner — and I have the perfect, easy-listening tunes for all your sunshiny adventures! My May 2019 Soundtrack is a short n’ sweet, feel-good, 28 track playlist ideal for road trips, entertaining, long walks in this beautiful weather or unwinding on vacation. As always, it features an eclectic mixture of genres spanning musical categories — there’s something for everyone!
A handful of May’s standout tracks include Jon Bryant’s Ya Ya Ya Ya, MOOD ROBOT’s Safe and Sound, The Head and the Heart’s People Need a Melody, Work Drug’s Belize, Saib’s Shanghai Nights, Easy Life’s Sunday, Prince Fox & Quinn XCII’s Space, Far Caspian’s Conversations, Jye’s You on My Mind, Jaymison’s Pretty Mama, Slumberville’s Honolulu and Medasin & Kathleen’s Nice to Meet You. Happy listening!
Despite best laid plans, April always seems to be our busiest month. Although I’m committed to my goal of 5+ blog posts monthly in 2019 (read more about my goals and what I’ve been working on BTS), things have been quiet here at JustineCelina since mid-month — and for good reason! Between tax season (I went to art school, but thankfully Adam is an accountant!), tail ends of client projects, Easter and a lot of planning for upcoming partnerships, the past 2 weeks have been incredibly busy. I had a few posts scheduled, but it was a much more productive use of time to prioritize the business side of things while staying on top of my health and wellness (I’ve also still managed 3+ workout per week!). There were a lot of late nights and early mornings this month with ultra chill, relaxing, ambient tunes streaming through my speakers — and I’ve channeled them all into my April 2019 Soundtrack!
Without a doubt, this is definitely the chillest playlist I’ve ever published. I’m constantly listening to music while I work away — reading, writing, editing, planning, designing, photographing, conceptualizing (and list goes on!). This is why I gravitate towards music that encourages creative thought with minimal lyrics — and I discovered tons of new Spotify playlists to help keep my mind calm and focused. I’ve pulled my favourite tracks into this mellow, feel-good, 55 track playlist — if you’ve got a massive to-do list to tackle and are looking for some inspiring tunes to decorate your time, this soundtrack is for you!
Friends, welcome back for another Monthly Soundtrack! March was a very full month, brimming with tons of behind-the-scenes work — and my 2.5 hour March 2019 Soundtrack was pumping through the speakers the whole time! As the snow starts to melt, I find myself yearning for upbeat, uplifting, empowering music to ease the winter-to-spring transition — and I found so many incredible tracks this month to help me stay focused and inspired to continue working towards my goals. I also discovered Spotify’s Morning Motivation playlist and I’m convinced it made all those 5am starts more productive!
It’s difficult to choose favourites this month, but a few of my most played tracks include Golden Daze’s Blue Bell, Tove Styrke’s Sway, Glades Nervous Energy, Andrew Applepie’s Salted Caramel, Dominic Fike’s 3 Nights, WEALTHYSELF’s Million Dollar Mood, Sensi Sye’s Conscious, Blithe Field’s RD1, pronoun’s temporary tantrum, Shwayze’s Rich City, MorMor’s Outside, Wun Two’s Vio, filous’s All My Friends Are Rich, Joey Pecoraro’s Novice Juggler, Yumi Youma’s In Camera and SŸDE’s Above The Clouds. I hope you enjoy this eclectic, easy listening playlist as much as I do!
