If you love Vanessa’s picks as much as we do, get excited, because you may see some more weekend playlists from her on the site very soon… :] Vanessa was gracious enough to give us a little background on what inspired her choices for this YM&C weekend playlist:
When it comes to music, I tend to channel a wide range of different emotions all at once. I say this because it explains the random selection of music here. I feel structure is too confining and music is no way restraining. I chose this particular collection of songs because it so perfectly reflects what I feel. It might seem silly, but when I listen to this playlist it’s like I’m transported to another time, another memory, another feeling. At one point you can be sitting, eyes closed enjoying the instrumentals and the next just completely off the walls air drumming to the beat. I love it, I love the versatility, and I love that out of body feeling. I hope you all can experience the same feelings I do and just enjoy some good music from some very talented artists.
Thanks to the YM&C team for allowing me to share.
All the best,
