songs for sweet london

1 Sep

oh man have i been getting my music on over here. nothing calls for some tunes like strolling around a new city. i’ve enjoyed having music as a backdrop for london’s beautiful summery meets autumn scenery.

below is my soundtrack to london. you’ll notice quite quickly that a majority of these songs are of dreamy, hazy, vintage-y love & well stocked with sweet sounding female vocals that echo a more carefree time. there’s also a good mingling of fun poppy beats (aka felix da housecat!).

i must confess, that this girl is subject to little homesickness at times. i’ve found a perfect remedy is listening to music that reminds me of the one i’m missing. these songs do just that.

to the boy back home, pay special attention to track 3.

enjoy, readers!
