Best playlist for Rainy Days

November is for sure the gloomiest, the wettest month of all. Personally, I hate this time of year with a passion. It’s after Halloween, but not quite Christmas yet. Mariah Carey and Wham! are not acceptable yet, but you know you are inching your way closer to Christmas but its just out of reach.

I’ve managed to come up with a playlist of good, alternative music to listen to while looking out a window with the pouring rain drumming against the window pane outside. These are my recommendations:  

  1. Angel – Massive Attack
  2. Deadcrush (Lea Porcelain Remix) – alt-J
  3. Dre – Warpaint
  4. Elegia – New Order
  5. Fame – David Bowie
  6. Flume – Bon Iver
  7. Heaven (Nicolas Jaar Remix) – Kasper Bjorke
  8. Hunter – Bjork
  9. I Wish I Had You – Billie Holiday and Her Orchestra
  10. Imager – Barbarossa
  11. Inertia Creeps – Massive Attack
  12. Mad Woman – Sevdaliza
  13. Pain – Boy Harsher
  14. Reverse Faults – Sampha
  15. Sides – Perfume Genius
  16. Smoking Section – St. Vincent
  17. Sorrow – The National
  18. Stranger’s Kiss – Alex Cameron
  19. Telepath – Crystal Castles
  20. Variations – Nicolas Jaar
  21. VHS Nightmare – Coals
  22. Warsaw Street – Lea Porcelain
  23. You Don’t Own Me – Lesley Gore

If you are into more cheerful tunes, 80s style and nostalgia, I really recommend a playlist on Spotify by a Youtuber and musician Hayley Blais, called “STRANGER THINGS”. It’s over 16 hours of music, perfect for a chill afternoon or studying session:
