Top 10 Songs on My Summer Playlist

Posted on Monday, July 29th, 2013 by


1. Number one on my list is River Flows In You, a very romantic piece by South Korean pianist/composer Yiruma. This song is really relaxing for me, and I listen to it a lot when I’m writing, trying to sleep, or I’ve simply had a bad day.

2. Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. This song is kind of a pump up song for me–not because of the lyrics, but because of the beat. It’s different, and it’s a really easy song to jam out to. Whenever I close at Noodles & Company, we often play this after hours just to get us in a good mood before we start cleaning!

3. Another song I’ve really been into lately is Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. I like how the song is really catchy, but also has a deeper meaning. To me, this song is making aware the changes that are going on in society–how everything is now electronic and media based. I also really like the Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix cover of Radioactive. Lindsey is an amazing violinist! I’ve always considered the violin to be an under appreciated instrument.

4. A song I have loved since the day it came out is Same Love by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. As a proud supporter of equality and gay rights, the significance of this song makes me really respect Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for voicing their opinions on something that is so controversial. Same Love gives me hope.

5. The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows by Brand New. I don’t really have any reasoning behind liking this song other than that I just really like theBrave song :).

6. I actually really like country music, and Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” is a really spunky song that easily made its way into the top ten of my playlist.

7. & 8. Dirt Road Anthem and Tattoos on this Town by Jason Aldean make me think of home a lot, so I listen to them frequently.

9. Like Same Love, Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” is a song that’s meant to empower it’s listeners. While Sara Bareilles wrote this song in dedication to a friend who had troubles coming out, Brave has been interpreted as a song to speak against all bullying. Plus, it’s just really catchy.

10. Last but not least, Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” has become a guilty pleasure of mine. I really like Mile Cyrus’ voice, and while the video may be a little strange, the song is actually really good.

  1. This paragraph is really a good one it assists new web viewers, who are wishing in

Hello! My name’s Jasmine Lara, but most people call me Jazzy.

If I miraculously stick on my current career path, when I graduate from Concordia I will have a major in Social Work and Spanish, along with a minor in Psychology. Before I came to Concordia, I called Litchfield, Minnesota my home.

I’m a first generation Cobber, and the first to go to college in my family in general! Needless to say, I’m pretty proud of myself ☺. Because of this, I’m not taking my time here at Concordia for granted. Currently I’m involved in Hall Council, Homecoming Committee, and Echo Band, along with working for Dining Services and Maurices in West Fargo.

In my spare time, I like to lounge around with my friends and explore the wonderful place we call Fargo-Moorhead. On weekends you’ll often find me with my friends, whether it’s hanging out in one of their rooms, or at Kroll’s diner chowing down on one of their awesome milkshakes.

Concordia has brought me many new opportunities, some that I have yet to even figure out. Until I figure them out though, I’m just going to enjoy my time here—in my opinion, there’s nothing better than being a Cobber!
