Monthly Mixtape #2: Schwarmerei

A cassette tape with the words 'monthly mixtape' in a brush script above and below.

Hey everyone! I’m back with the February edition of my new music feature. I had so much fun with the playlists created last time — do check out those on Little Onion Writes, Yellow’s the Word and by my co-creator Evi on Adventuring Through Pages. If you’d like to share a playlist I didn’t see do let me know. πŸ™‚

Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by me, Eve @ Twist in the Taile, and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages. Here’s how it works: each month, we give you a one-word prompt, and you make a playlist. We welcome you to interpret the prompt however you want and with whatever music you’re into. You can link to your Monthly Mixtape here.

Please link back to the original Monthly Mixtape prompt whenever you make a playlist. We welcome you to use the title image for your blog post if you wish. You can create a playlist in response to any of the prompts going forward, not just the current months, but you won’t be able to add your link once the new prompt is up. The next Monthly Mixtape will be up in the first week of March. πŸ™‚ This month’s prompt is…

#2: schwarmerei

schwarmerei, noun: excessive and unbridled enthusiasm or sentiment

I hope you enjoy this prompt and I look forward to seeing your playlists. πŸ™‚ You can add your link or view other links below.

monthly mixtape linksOnce more I’ve made my own playlist — this one was SUPER hard since I could think of a lot of great songs but, ah well, hopefully I’ll still get to use them in the future. Also, this was very heavily influenced by the podcast Wonderful because, well, it’s an enthusiastic podcast and so provides some very enthusiastic songs. (I do love it and would recommend.)

Many umbrellas of different colours suspended in the air along a street. The word 'schwarmerei' on top.

for when you want an excited, bubbly song to jam out your emotions to.
listen on youtube / spotify

secrets – mary lambert
money won’t pay – bo en, augustus
house of air – brendan maclean
don’t take the money – bleachers
happy with me – holychild
sound of silence – dami im
cut to the feeling – carly rae jepsen
good as hell – lizzo

I hope you like it! I also adore the video for Secrets and Good as Hell so if you’re into that I’d absolutely recommend them. πŸ™‚ Have a good day y’all!

  1. I forgot to do this last month! I’m trying to get back into blogging this month so *fingers crossed* I love the theme of this playlist but I feel like I’m going to have some trouble with it as well haha
    Out of your playlist I only know Mary Lambert’s Secrets but I love that song so much ❀ Got to listen to the entire playlist!
