Playlist – Colorado

Verbose as we are, there is no way we can spend the next year constantly yelling talking to each other. Terrible as it may sound to the ears of an outsider, singing as loudly as possible is a frequent occurrence in The Highland Flinger (THF). We will make a playlist of what we’re slappin the air bass to. Each list will contain songs from artists/bands from the state or will allude to the state in some way.

Do you Spotify? Here’s the link to the playlist: colorado :


1.Javelin – Colorado Trail
If the Colorado Trail is anything like the Oregon Trail, we’re in!

2. Stephen Stills – Colorado
I bet you didn’t know that Stills did anything without Crosby, Nash, and Young. WELL HE DID.

3. Lotus – Colorado
Be it the car or the flower, they’re both awesome.

4. John Denver – Rocky Mountain High
Double whammy this time for John Denver. Song about Colorado, and his last name is the biggest city and state capitol!

5. Jimmy Eat World – Lucky Denver Mint
Denver does have a US Mint, and it makes us wonder: How does 1 word have 2 very different meanings? How does this happen? Can’t we just make up a new word for one of those two things?

6. Dan Andriano – Me And Denver
Me and Denver? Denver and Me? Denver and I? Where are the grammar police when you need them?

7. OneRepublic – Good Life
To our friends in New York, we say hello. Our friends in LA, you don’t know where we’ve been for the last few months or so – Phoenix to Boise to Colorado. Also, you’re not currently watching a Disney commercial.

8. The Fray- Over My Head
Listening to Denver radio stations, one DJ said that The Fray is the Tim Tebow of Colorado music. Does that mean that they’re virgins, too?

9. India.Arie – Video
Is India.Arie: A name, or an email address?

10. Hearts of Palm – Spinning Away
Kind of like laying down after a night out at Red Square and Cowboy Lounge in Denver.

11. Paper Bird – Lost Boys
If you don’t know by now, Hook is one of the greatest movies of all time. Netflix time!

12. 3 oh!3 (feat. Ke$ha) – My First Kiss
Hopefully your first kiss isn’t like THIS.

13. Kal Cahoone – Build The Fire
Jackie still regales all with her Big Bear fire building story. She may have also gotten there by walking 10 miles, uphill both ways.

14. Porlolo- Animals Should Live Forever
Humans are animals, right? OK, then yeah, I’m for this.

15. Gregory Alan Isakov- Salt and the Sea
Two things we miss very much. OK, one a little more than the other…
