I am constantly listening to music – but more than simply listening – I am waiting. I’m waiting for the next great song to add to my playlist. I am obsessed with finding new music to listen to.
Whether it comes from a movie, a TV show, Spotify alerts, or even commercials (you know I’ve Shazam-ed commercials), I’m always secretly listening to what’s playing in the background everywhere I go.
This month I was inspired to write about what I’ve been listening to in August. I have a running list on Spotify of my “liked” songs where a lot of my favorites end up before I distribute them to their appropriate playlist. This month’s liked songs come from my reborn obsession with The Killers and their new release. I also recently binge-watched Little Big Lies on HBO and that show has an AMAZING soundtrack, so some of those are on the list. And a few are actually Spotify and fiancé suggestions.
So if you’re like me and love to find new music to listen to, here are my August Playlist Favorites:
Run For Cover – The Killers
The Way it Was – The Killers
Shot at the Night – The Killers

I love The Killers! It’s been a while since I listened to their music
I hadn’t listened to them in a while either but then they came out with a new song so I started to listening to all of their music again. I just love them so much.
Cool songs! You must really like the Killers for 3 out of the 10 songs to be by them. 🙂
I loved Big Little Lies also, so I will definitely need to check out the soundtrack! Awesome suggestion. I’m unfamiliar with most of these artists except the Killers. So this definitely has helped to expand my horizons!
I’ve always loved The killers but I hadn’t listened to them in a while and I found these awesome songs from them that are like 4 years old. So you never know what you’ll find out there. 🙂

Your pictures make the recipe look so good. While I prefer cooking fast, rather than slow :-), there’s something to be said for the taste of crockpot meals!
