mix tape #5

Here is this months mixed tape for you!! I know you've been anticipating this post:) I've loved being introduced to new music from my blogging buddies, so this feature has been my way of sharing some of my favorite tunes with you! 
This little mix was inspired by piano in general (no duh right? haha) I was actually making a playlist of songs with piano in the backround for my Ipod and realized that it would be a perfect mix to share!
Once again all the songs are lined right up in a "mix tape" format, with each song leading you to a YouTube video, and again let me say to not judge me because of the video content, you're just supposed to listen to the music, and of course enjoy!

1. Shelter - Birdy
2. The Hill - Marketa Irglova
3. Sophia - Nernia Pallot
4. Almost Lover - A Fine Frenzy
5. The Call - Regina Spektor
6. Spell - Marie Digby
7. Dreaming With A Broken Heart - John Mayer

1. Gravity - Sarah Bareilles 
2. Christmas Lights - Coldplay
3. Black & Blue - Chris Garneau
4. Wherever You Will Go - Charlene Soraia
5. The Luckiest - Ben Folds
6. Chances - Athlete
7. The Nearness of You - Norah Jones
8. Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

I hope you've enjoyed today's collection of piano songs!! If you find a new song or artist that you really like let me know! I'd love to hear! also if you'd like to see any of the other mixed tapes I've done here on the blog, just go here.

xoxo, Emily
P.S. My mix tape feature was inspired by the fabulous bluebird


  1. The Call is the most influential song I think I have ever listened to in my entire life. I always whip it out when something BIG is about to go down. I am already in love with your music taste when I saw that one. And I will proceed to get the rest of the mixed tape. I've been in need of some rockin new music anyways.

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog and following! I followed back and joined your giveaway. I really like your mixtape too. I'm a piano player, and I love how these songs mix piano with the vocals.


  5. you're welcome about being follower number 400... if only i was number 500!! then, i probably would have gotten a prize or something! =)

    i'm glad to do it... and thank you for following mine! it always feels good to get a new follower, no matter what the number!

    your blog is really cute, so i have no doubts your numbers will rise to the thousands very soon. one of my best friends just started a lifestyle blog, and she only has one follower so far... ME! =)

    it takes time, but usually only in the beginning. i love your colorful blog... and your evident sweet spirit and zest for life. and your gorgeous red hair! and that belly... i have to say, i'm a little jealous. i loved pregnancy so much {had my first last june}, that i really want to do it all again. but at 40 yrs old, i just don't know if that's in the plan for us. so when i see other pregnant mamas... especially adorable ones like you... i get super antsy to have another. congrats!! hope your pregnancy and birth are seamless and safe!

    and thanks for the comments on my blog!

    lastly, i am always looking for good music... new music. so i appreciate this list! i will definitely check some of these out. some of the artists here are among my favorite, so i look forward to it!
