Rachel & Carina's Infinite Playlist (80)



RACHEL • "Little Lion Man" (Mumford & Sons cover) by Nikka Costa
This is kind of a long story. I've always loved music and way back when (aka high school), I would either buy CDs or I would wait for a song I loved to come on the radio so I could record it on a cassette (yes, I'm old). Anyway Napster came out my senior year and suddenly all this music was at my fingertips. So to find new music I would go to my favorite lyrics site,  close my eyes & click on a song, read the lyrics and if I liked it - I would download it. That's how I found Nikka Costa. She never really got big but I was a HUGE fan. She had one hit song -- "Like a Feather" -- from her first album (which I still have along with her second one) but I stopped keeping up with her music a long time ago. Then I saw that she did a song for If I Stay. It didn't make it onto the official soundtrack but I looked her up again and found that she not only released another album but she also released a cover of "Little Lion Man". I listened to that first and I've been playing it constantly ever since.



CARINA • "Stolen Dance" by Milky Chance
Heard this song while in the car and really liked the beat. Liked it so much that I didn't realize how fast I was driving. I had to stop myself from dancing in my seat but that was unsuccessful. Hope you enjoy the song as much as I did!

  1. Stolen Dance is such a fun tune! I'd not heard it before I listened today, but you can be sure I'm going to put it on a playlist of my own. I'd also never heard of Nikki Costa, but her voice is quite lovely.
