Playlist For People-Watching

Bob Marley once said,

“One good thing about music, when it hits, you feel no pain.”

SoulPancake (pg.12) asks us to…

Step 1: Go to a crowded public place

Step 2: Put on your headphone. Hit play.

Step 3: Sit back, watch the world — and the souls you share it with — go by.

So hit me with music.

I’m a natural people-watcher. I can sit anywhere and just observe. I am also a natural nerd, so most of my people watching is done in Marist’s James A. Cannavino library. As the weather has warmed here in Poughkeepsie I’ve taken my stalking people-watching to the great outdoors.

The drastic change in locales flipped my mood immediately, ergo I have decided to divide the soundtrack to my voyeurism into two simple themes : Rain & Shine.


Astral Weeks – Van Morrison


The Cave – Mumford and Sons

Come Away With Me – Norah Jones

She Loves You– The Gaslight Anthem

Happiness– The Fray

Outloud – Dispatch


Lime Tree Trevor Hall

Hello – Martin Solveig

Have Love Will Travel – The Black Keys

You Make My Dreams Come True– Hall & Oates

Like A Star– Corrine Bailey Rae

Steal My Sunshine – Len

ENJOY – and comment with your own playlists!
