Monday Mixer #19 [Sing Along Songs]

The Monday Mixer makes it second appearance here at Lost In The Sound! Each week, a group of music bloggers gather together and create a playlist for the world to enjoy. The theme this week was “Sing Along Songs,” resulting in a fantastic collection of anthems that will hopefully get you singing along, even if you aren’t the most talented singer in the world. It’s okay… just sing as if no one’s watching.

Bon Iver – “Your Love (The Outfield Cover)”
Music by Bon Iver ≠ sing along… but music by The Outfield does, so sing along with Justin Vernon. I have extra love of this cover because of the outro.

Ben @ The Metropolitan Jolt

Martin Solveig & Dragonette – “Hello”
When I listen to Martin Solveig and Dragonette’s “Hello” I still can hear the 80,000 others from EDC Las Vegas screaming along, too. This tracks combines a nice 80s vibe with some heavier electronic sounds to create quite the jam.

Emarosa – “Just Another Marionette”
I have a terrible singing voice, but at least I can admit it. The song that I love to sing along the most to would have to be “Just Another Marionette” by Emarosa. I don’t care what anyone says about Jonny Craig and his laptop situation. All I know is that he has a beautiful voice and that, I don’t think you can deny (even if you are not a fan of him). Of the few bands that Jonny is a part of, Emarosa showcases his talent more than any other (excluding his solo career of course) and that is why I picked Emarosa. I have to admit though, that this week’s theme was a toughy for me for some reason.

Cory @ Silence Nogood

Lissie – “Pursuit of Happiness (Kid Cudi Cover) (Live)”
I try not to sing along to too many songs… I tend to annoy other listeners, but Lissie’s cover of “Pursuit of Happiness” has always inspired the singer in me.  It’s also one of my favorite covers – she really puts something into Cudi’s original that’s completely here own and pulls it off well <3 Lissie.

Marcus @ A Pocket Full of Seeds

Bedouin Soundclash – “When The Night Feels My Song”
A song for those that want to sing like no one is listening. Try and remember to sing this one in the shower, wait for the chorus then choose which vocal harmony you want and make it loud. Or alternatively stick this on in a car packed with 5 people and 4 festival tickets and turn it up so loudly that you cant hear yourself singing and everyone’s happy.

Kevin @ Lost In The Sound

Titus Andronicus – “Theme From ‘Cheers'”
“Theme from ‘Cheers'” is a song about making mistakes and then analyzing these faults. Despite the depressing message of this song, it’s still incredibly fun to sing and chant along to, much like other songs from the bands discography.

Marc @ Umstrum

Friendly Fires – “Paris”
“One day we’re gonna live in Paris, I promise, I’m on it…” See I couldn’t help but sing along! It works every time…

Frank @ Lost In The Sound

fun. – “All The Pretty Girls”
Something about this song just makes me want to get up and sing along at the top of my lungs. I’m not sure if it’s Nate Ruess’s distinctive voice or the fact that fun. do indie pop and do it extremely well, but I can’t listen to this song without feeling the need to sing. Fun from a band called fun. Who would have thought?
