Friday Playlist: Lose Yourself

Songs for when you can’t quite see the road ahead of you.

Some days you wake up in a familiar place, but you feel as though you don’t know who you are, where you’re headed, or what the end of the journey will bring you. Sometimes a person just needs to get lost for a while in order to figure things out. Here are a few songs to keep you company while you wander.

    This is exactly the playlist I need. Now I have something to cry to. Thanks, Rookie! xx

    Absolutely lovely. Nice touch with the Harrison song.

    Ahh I love this. I personally prefer the cover of Where Is My Mind by the group Trampled By Turtles to the original, but I was actually listening to both versions earlier today and it’s such a good song no matter who does it. Thank you rookie!

    As always, perfect playlist!

    I love the Pixies! There is a piano cover of Where is My Mind that is done by Maxence Cyrin. If you haven’t heard it, you should check it out!

      I will shamelessly admit that the Maxence Cyrin cover is one of my go-to melancholy/crying songs (actually, and perhaps this reveals too much about me, it’s #1 on my most played list). So, so happy you mentioned it!!!

    I love listening to film music, though it always makes me embarrassingly emotional. (Especially the Harry Potter soundtrack, *sigh*)

    • retrogirl23 July 6th, 2013 10:55 PM

      I love film music too! The Lion King & Hunger Games soundtracks are my faves :)

  • Katzemuse July 7th, 2013 2:37 AM

    exactly what I needed

  • Imogen_Miss_Tutu July 8th, 2013 10:48 AM

    This playlist is perfect! I was trying to find the title of many of these songs for a long time and now Rookie has brought them to me. Thank you Pixie!!

    Where is my mind will forever be an amazing song.

  • Ella W July 9th, 2013 4:52 PM

    The first song is giving me chills..

  • Juliaa231 July 10th, 2013 11:53 PM

    I wish you guys would make a spotify playlist and put it there too :(

  • MissCobain August 4th, 2013 12:40 AM

    I listen to Longview by Green Day when I feel like that. I dunno, the song just kinda looks at the boredom of a teenage ass without motivation.
    And its catchy;p

    I love you guys like so much for including ‘Greyhound Bound For Nowhere’ on this list.. As if I didn’t love this blog enough, already!! :)
