A Playlist—Candy City

playlist

In my head, there exist many different versions of what I would imagine as the world I would like to live in.  When I’m feeling voluntarily isolated, I dream of a black-and-white tinted world where I meet the best kind of people at three o’clock in the morning in crowded café’s, where boys with defined jaws and suits like to play guitars with giant grins, and girls in dresses like to sway to the beat.  When I’m feeling especially “French”, I dream of being in a Sofia Coppola-directed commercial where everyone shares the same passion for pastels as I do and is followed around by their own accordion player.

Most times, however (mostly the day after I fall asleep watching the 1971 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory), I fantasize of living in the perfect world where everything is made of candy, and we all wear tiny pink dresses and hearts on our faces and the streets are made of chocolate covered in gold foil and the trees drop caramel-covered apples and it rains chocolate and cavities don’t exist.

These songs are the songs that I would imagine would all play in the different scenes of the beautiful movie where the world is made of candy, where we all stroll and skip through the candy streets, or enjoy a milkshake in a diner, or bake our own pastries.  Quite some mouth-watering involved with this post.

My new favorite song, which inspired the title of this playlist, is Candy City by Supercute! (obligatory exclamation point).  Now, on to eat my chocolate cake.  Also, let me tell you how fun it is to make these playlists!  These are just too much fun!

    1. You made that all yourself? Oh my gosh I'm telling you, you're talented beyond my comprehension, that's amazing!

  10. What a great playlist! Unfortunately, the magic of Willy Wonka has forever been erased now that I've been in law school for over 2.5 years. Me and some classmates watched the film the other day, and all we could see were all the lawsuits just waiting to happen! A contract with lettering so small that no one can read it? Unconscionable and void! Refusal to employ anyone who is not an Oompa Loompa? Gross violation of employment laws! And, of course, all those injured children! Everyone walked away thinking, "Willy Wonka needs better lawyers!"
