…..and we’re back

September2014playI took some time off – some much needed, well deserved, brain is dead and needed a re-charge, time off.  Things were put on the back burner and I don’t regret the declined meetings or my abandoned blog.  Summers are for my children and we make the most of every sun soaked second.  Swimming, tennis, water polo, lounging like a pro – we really have this summer vacation thing down.  It was one of my favorite summers and I savored every minute spent with my kids.  These days are fleeting and I am one lucky chick to be able to shut-off and give them my undivided attention.  Summer vacation was terrific, but now I’m back and ready for something new.

September Playlist is below with a few extra tunes to make-up for the missing July & August lists.  I think my favorite from this group is River by Ibeyi.  These gals (identical twins btw) are great.


School is back in session and so is the chick.  Rock on.


June 2014 Playlist


June 10th… not bad considering the crazytown my life is currently.  June 2014 Playlist has a little old school (Classics like Elvis Costello & Joe Jackson), a little trendy (The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack choices) and stuff I just wanted to listen to (favs like Vampire Weekend and Franz Ferdinand).  As usual I am all over the place, but it seems appropriate considering the life I lead. School is letting out here soon.  Summer has begun.  Enjoy the madness!

May 2014 Playlist

May2014Playlist.jpg So… it’s May 21st and I am finally throwing up this month’s playlist.  Just in time for Memorial Day – Yeah me!

My favorite from this playlist will be easy to spot.  The irishman Hozier has a few songs on this list.  Take Me To Church was the first song I heard from Hozier.  It was on repeat for a couple of weeks before I added the other tunes.

Paolo Nutini’s Iron Sky is darn good too.  There is a speech in the middle of this song… stick with it, it’s really great.

The rest are just some random bits from my Shazam dump and some requests from my teenage girl.  She has some eclectic tastes in music and I couldn’t be prouder.







Chick Tunes Tuesday: April 2014 Playlist


This guy… THIS GUY… he made my entire month. St. Paul & the Broken Bones. It’s like watching an accountant being possessed by Otis Redding… only better.

You love them don’t you. I do too. I found them via NPR because all good things come from public radio. Read more about these guys here… worth your time, I promise.

You need another don’t you… Here you go:

So this month’s playlist has a couple from my new favorites.  I threw in some new songs from old favorites The Black Keys and Elbow as well.

Spring is coming: roll down those windows and turn up the tunes!


Chick Tunes Tuesday: St. Patrick’s Day 2014


CC StPatsPlay

So much whining and complaining.  So a couple of you (I am looking at YOU C & M) were unhappy with my March 2014 playlist choices.  Actually you were unhappy with my lack of St. Patrick’s Day themed choices.  It’s as if you don’t know me.  Obviously I create an entire NEW and FANCY playlist for St. Patrick’s Day.

Dropkick Murphys?  CHECK.

Flogging Molly?  CHECK.


Inappropriate songs by Irishmen?  CHECK

Here she is in all her glory.  The Coastal Chick St. Patrick’s Day Playlist of 2014.

“Here’s to cheating, stealing, fighting, and drinking. 
If you cheat, may you cheat death. 
If you steal, may you steal a woman’s heart. 
If you fight, may you fight for a brother. 
And if you drink, may you drink with me”
