TGIF Playlist: August 22, 2014 – Birthday Edition

This is a celebratory TGIF Playlist, because it’s my birthday this weekend NBD or anything…

Katie made the coolest birthday themed post already, with the funniest gifs (check that out here). It warmed my little heart because I’ve got the best blog partner–which is like a life partner, but you don’t live together or share half your money and belongings with one another (I don’t know what a life partner is…).

So my post is made up of songs I’ll be adding to my “b-day play-list’ (the real name of my playlist on iTunes).  Hope you like it and have a great weekend!

LCD SoundsystemAll My Friends

  • I’m going to sound like a hippie, but this song has energy. No matter what you are doing, if you are playing All My Friends in the background, it’s suddenly more epic. To watch the last magical live performance of this song in New York City, click here, if you stick it out to the 4:50 mark you get the ‘do-do-do’ sing along :), love it.

LenSteal my Sunshine

  • As far as I’m concerned this a Canadian classic and it wouldn’t be a Sasha playlist without some throwbacks from the 90s.

Mac DeMarcoBye Bye Bye

  • Here’s to saying a goodbye to being 26, and a hello to 27 :|

Gorillaz – Crystallized (xx cover)

  • I guess this would be the slow jam section of the playlist, I just found out about this song so its getting a lot of love.

Majid JordanA Place Like This

  • Newly released, but sounds a lot like 90’s R&B, #swoon.

Andy BullTalk Too Much

  • This one is for all those people who sometimes wish they were the strong, silent type, but just end up being the goofy, over sharers at the party.

The Isley BrothersShout

  • Bringing the tempo back up with a little Isley Brothers, because it isn’t a party until all your guests dance in unison while singing “and a little bit louder now!”.

Arcade FireAfterlife

  • My favourite song of 2013 for a reason, I’ll probably be doing weird arm dances/thrusts when this song comes on and I genuinely can’t wait to see them live next week- think something along the lines of this level of excitement.

Happy Valentine’s Day From Music Between Friends!

Feel free to subscribe to the channel if you want to see more, or leave a comment of what you’d want us to talk about next. If we get a warm enough response I think we’ll try another… maybe with a fancier set-up (we used my MacBook for this one) but it was a fun experiment, hopefully you like the music and thanks for taking the time to visit our blog :)
