Life's Soundtrack: White

Longing for spring and sunshine and the light of your smile

Have you heard the news?  We are celebrating WHITE here at Inspiration Studio in June.  I can't wait to see the Flickr group filling up with your interpretation of the theme - it is going to be so much fun and so beautiful!

We are going to stay on theme in this week's playlist - our songs are going to be all about white.  Share your favorite songs about white, that have white in the title, or white in the artist/group name.  This is one of those totally random themes, which I love because they always end up so diverse.  Here are my picks:

The Moody Blues - Nights in White Satin (thanks for the perfect kick off song Denise!)
Dido - White Flag
White Lies - Bigger Than Us
Jack White & Loretta Lynn - Portland, Oregon
Mumford & Sons - White Blank Page

I'm still on a bit of high over our last playlist, Wishing and Dreaming, your song picks were just so amazing I can't stop listening, so I really can't wait to see what your suggestions will be this week.  Take a minute and share your "white" songs with us in the comments section.

Fantastic!! Amazing that you came up with so many musical 'whites'!!!

Hurrah, it's Thursday again and time for Life's Soundtrack. Fantastic to see the Moody Blues are top of your 'White' list Jamie – an all time classic.

Here are two tracks from me this time. Just couldn't resist a White Knuckle Ride with Jamiroquai: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_bQ0h85gY8 followed by a relaxing track to bring the pulse rate down again! Into White by Cat Stevens http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3rdym66uL0

I'll be checking back often to see what other great 'White' tracks everyone lists :))

another really fun topic - love your list already jamie... i just saw U2 last night for the first time, wow, what a show! and i'm so into mumford and sons right now, it's a true musical addiction.

first one that comes to mind for me is 'white winter hymnal' by fleet foxes, who i love almost as much as mumford and sons.

then maybe that song that was so popular a few years ago... a one hit wonder... hey there delilah by the plain white t's... is it bad that i still really like that song?

and even though it has nothing to do with the colour white lyrically, it is a fun song, vampire weekend's white sky. on an unrelated note, i got into vampire weekend because they have a song named 'bryn' which is one letter off from being my name, which is kind of exciting when you have an unusual name like mine. so i kind of had to love them, if you know what i mean.

anyway... random tales aside... looking so forward to this playlist and the celebration of white here at the I studio!
