PropertyOfZack Playlist : : The Ready Set, This Century

propertyofzack:

The Ready Set are currently out on the Blackout Forever Tour and This Century just finished up their own acoustic tour. We thought it’d be a great idea to pair the two bands together for a new PropertyOfZack Playlist feature. Check out the Playlists and listen to the songs on Spotify while reading everyone’s thoughts!

ELO - Moment in Paradise *Song is currently not on Spotify
This song was written by Jeff Lynne of ELO & is off of their most recent album, Zoom (not very recent). I’ve always admired Jeff Lynne’s song writing. Every time I listen to Moment in Paradise it instantly takes me out of my head & puts me into a relaxed state. As a side note, Ringo Star recorded the drums on this track. If you haven’t checked out ELO make sure to do so. You will probably be surprised at how many of their songs you already know.
David Bowie - Queen Bitch
I love the vintage analogue sound of this recording. The title was the first thing that stood out to me & as it happened it also turned out to be my all time favorite song from Bowie.
Talking Heads - Burning Down The House
Somehow this song always finds a place on my party playlists. It always puts me a in a great mood. This band, to me, is always fun to listen to. If you have ever listened to your Windows XP sample music you probably heard a song by the Talking Heads singer, David Bryne. While that song may not have been your cup of tea I’m sure you’ll find some gems in the Talking Heads catalogue.
Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World
I love the riff in this song! It’s very simple but instantly recognizable. The song writing & arrangement is at another level. Tears for Fears has such a distinct characteristic when placed next to other bands of their time. Without a doubt
they are one of my favorites!
St. Vincent - Marrow
For the sake of having an artist on here that is a little more current I’m choosing the song Marrow by St. Vincent. I find it rare when a songs complete picture secures a vibe that is unlike anything I have ever heard before. Marrow completely does this for me. I detect small bits of Peter Gabriel & King Crimson in her writing. Her approach seems to be that of an innocent girl w/ a monster inside that is fighting to come to the surface. If I knew how to make a heart symbol right now I would.  - Ryan
September - Earth, Wind & Fire
For when I feel like gettin’ a bit funky; I just turn to this song.
Slow Dancing In A Burning Room - John Mayer
I love the melody on this song, and John Mayer just inspires me to want to write music.
Fix You - Coldplay
This song just makes me happy. I loved it from the first time I heard it. 
Never Say Never - The Fray
Super pretty song and love his voice.
1901 - Phoenix
Phoenix is just so unique and creative. I love this song in particular cause of the drums. - Alex

Lana Del Rey - Off to the Races
I love the imagery in this song, it puts a classic, almost 1930’s
picture in my head.
GOLDHOUSE - Halo
I’ve been friends with this dude for a long time, and his music keeps
getting better. Good electronic dance stuff. Check it out.
Gotye - Eyes Wide Open
The melodies in this song are perfect, not to mention the production.
Haunting slide guitar mixed with an almost electro sounding drumkit.
It’s great, as is the entire album. Might even have throw in another
Gotye jam later on.
