Playlist: Midpoint

Well, it's that time of year again--the midpoint of the semester. This is where you realize that either you can take a little break in studying or you really need to ratchet it up for the rest of the semester. It's never really a good time, am I right? The midpoint of the semester alllllways seems the hardest and everything seems to pile on. At least that's how it's been for me every year of college since I've started. Anyway, to combat the Midpoint Blues, here's my playlist! It's a mix of all kinds of new stuff and fun stuff and as usual, some throwbacks!

1. Stronger by Britney Spears: This song was one of the first "Making the Video" episodes I ever saw--did you know she broke her foot making this video? She tripped on the chair!)
2. After Midnight by Matt Mason: Keep an eye out for him! He just signed a deal with CMT and was on tour with Luke Bryan. Very cool!
3. Won't Be Lonely Long by Josh Thompson: Again, saw him with Luke Bryan and this was definitely a crowd pleaser. My guess is you've heard this on country radio and just didn't know it was him!
4. Stereo Hearts by Gym Class Heros: This is TOO CATCHY! I love it! I listen to it on repeat in the shower and rock out!
5. Dirt Road Scholar by Dean Brody: He is my new music OBSESSION (besides Luke Bryan, because whenever I see any of his album covers I just smile and swoon). I have 7 of his songs that I downloaded at the same time and he's my new go to country guy. (Also, any Kappa Delta followers will like this one!)
6. Fly Me to the Moon by Grace Potter: She did a cover of this OLD SCHOOL tune for Pan-Am and I downloaded it, love it!
7. Runaround Sue by Dion: Biggest throwback of the bunch, but I've been putting this on repeat on a CD I have in my car. Holy moly this has gotten more plays than most!!! ....Gotta keep away from Runaround SUE!!

8. Don't Go Knocking On My Door by Britney Spears: Another choice from the "Oops I Did It Again" CD, but this one comes on right after Stronger. Yes, that means exactly what you're thinking: I still own the CD (my original) and still listen to it. My tweet above from a few days ago should explain it all.
9. In the Still of the Night by the Five Satins: I always think of Dirty Dancing when I hear this song but I just can't get enough!
10. This Old Heart of Mine by the Isley Brothers: Another old school one, but a lot of these are all on the same CD and this is another one that gets played a LOT! I just imagine it at a wedding and love it!

What are you current music choices? I need a few more to add to my library--I just recently cleared out some of my iPod and a few more songs will fit!!!
