Tuesday Playlist No.56: #NowPlaying.

There has been a lot on the new lately due to the Panama Papers.

It is a secret to no one that the wealthiest out there use loopholes to avoid paying taxes, but it is news that there is finally evidence and documents to prove it. The scandal has already claimed some victims, with the resignation of the president Read more »

The Tuesday Playlist No.42: Eye To Eye

The Tuesday Playlist No.42: Eye To Eye

Eyes. What is it about those organs through which we see that fascinate and hypnotize us? Why do people say they get lost looking into other people´s eyes? Why are they called the window to the soul? Why do people say when someone has an insight they have opened their eyes? Whether only for their biological function or something deeper there are a lot of songs to pay tribute to those wonderful orbs…here are 15 of our favorites, from Andrew Bird, to Chet Baker and even Calle 13 and Silvio Rodriguez.

The Tuesday Playlist No. 34: Fire!

The Tuesday Playlist No. 34: Fire!

This week, on November 5, there is a special night celebrated especially across England in memory of Guy Fawkes, called Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Night. Since there will be bonfire galore, we thought it would be suitable to dedicate this week´s playlist to the hottest element: Fire! Guy Fawkes was, along with Robert Catesby,  the most recognized and remembered figure from the group English Catholics who planned the Gunpowder plot in 1605. The plot meant to assassinate King James I of England and VI of Scotland. They wanted to blow up the House of Lords on Nov. 5th, 1605. Read more »

The Tuesday Playlist No. 29: The Moon

The Tuesday Playlist No. 29: The Moon

15 tracks including songs from George Harrison, Tom Waits, Anita O´Day, Julie London, Duran Duran, The Police and many more  to celebrate our favorite natural satellite The Moon. As we get over the spectacular lunar eclipse many of us witnessed this past Sunday night, we realized we have not done a playlist to the moon. About 4.6 billion years old, it rotates around the earth. Worshiped, adored, romanticized, feared, associated with femininity, fertility, tides. La Luna has been an inspiration to artists of all types! We hope you enjoy this 15 tracks and your Tuesday!

And although I don’t do it enough, one of my favorite things to do. Without further ado…this is a perfect playlist to lift you up!

A playlist celebrating the passing of the years, growing up, embracing changes, aging. 15 songs by John Lennon, Paul Simon, The Beatles, Mercedes Sosa, LCD Soundsystem, Travis, Simply Red, Steely Dan and more artist celebrating the passing of time. Since time is passing by for all of us, or at least that is how many of us perceive it at the moment,  I thought we would do our playlist today on that, how the years go by and we are all subject to its effects. And also because it was Paul´s birthday and I want to bug him for getting Read more »
