Music Between Friends Halloween Playlist: Sasha’s Picks

Happy Halloween!!  Along with Katie, I’ve compiled some songs to play tonight to celebrate a day where people dress up and be who/whatever they want, terrifying or fabulous, or terrifyingly fabulous and eat chocolate, yum. Here’s what’s on my list:

Arctic MonkeysPerhaps Vampires is a bit Strong but…

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Buried Alive (feat. Dr. Octagon). The album artwork  for Mosquito could give children nightmares all on its own.

alt-JBreezeblocks.  The music video is what makes me feel like this song is meant for a horror film.

Radiohead – Bodysnatchers.  Apparently this song was recorded in a “dilapidated mansion” (creepy) plus any excuse I can use to get a Radiohead song on the playlist…

Franz Ferdinand Evil Eye.

LordeGlory and Guts

Akron/FamilyMany Ghosts

Kanye West– I am a God. The screaming is what makes this feel like Halloween — the type of song that would play during a movie scene where the main character is running for their life. *My reaction* But seriously, get the guy his croissant so he can calm down.

Ending my playlist is a funny song because I’m the kind of person who needs to chase something scary with something funny or cute or else I can’t sleep at night, so Werewolf Bar Mitzvah… it is! “Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves…” typical Halloween.

Mini-Valentine’s Day Mix

If Michael Jordan says it, then it must be true?

I decided to share some of the lovey-dovey tunes that will be on my Valentine’s Day playlist.  Whether you are spoken for or not, hopefully you can enjoy the mix, or at the very least, you can find this Michael Jordan picture as hilarious as I did. Enjoy!

Amy WinehouseCupid

This girl may have had a rough go in life, but man could she sing a song.

The Knife is a Swedish electronic band that reminds me of Tegan and Sara meets LCD Soundsystem on this song.

Download: The August Playlist! 

August is one of my favourite months. Not because of the warm weather–even thought that is pretty awesome.  Not because it means a break/vacation from school–school’s for fools kids, and not because of my birthday… Gotcha — that is exactly why I love August… I know some people try to ignore their birthday, but clearly I am not that type of person (who passes up a guiltless excuse to eat cake?).  I also know I’m late with this playlist and that August is almost at its halfway mark, but better late than never I hope.

I took a nostalgic route to this months mix, as usual.  Most of the songs remind me of my month abroad.  Regardless, I hope you like the medley of Avi Buffalo, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!, Broken Social Scene, and Talking Heads to round off the month with. Enjoy!

Travel Time – The July Playlist

It isn’t July just yet, but I wanted to get a head start since I will be out of the country come Canada Day (how ironic).  I am going on an exciting adventure to Italy and Greece for the whole month and may not get a chance to post as much.  So, I figured a nostalgic/loosely themed playlist could be a second-rate consolation prize.

I tried to fit all my recent favourites on this playlist  (Foster the People, Wild Nothing etc.) as well as some consistent favourites.  So on that note, here is my parting gift for the month if I don’t get an opportunity to post what I’m listening to.

 Track Listing
01 Send Me On My Way - Rusted Roots
 02 Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win - Beastie Boys ft. Santogold
 03 Home - LCD Soundsystems
 04 Call It What You Want - Foster the People
 05 Gamme Ray - Beck
 06 Churches Under The Stairs - BSS presents...Brendan Canning
