It’s been a while since I posted a #TGIF playlist, I wasn’t the most consistent with posting them to begin with, but here are a handful of songs that I’ll be using to jumpstart my weekend:
Note: You can find a these songs packaged together on our SoundCloud page. Katie and I are just LUH-VING that site right now, I put my November playlist on at work all the time and it brings me such joy. This one goes out to you SoundCloud *pours hot tea on the floor*.
Solange– Looks Good With Trouble feat. Kendrick Lamar
Volcano Choir – Comrade (All Tiny Creatures Remix) I permanently swoon for Justin Vernon’s voice.
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:
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.
Are you sad and lonely? Heating up leftover Alphaghetti inside a plastic container and washing them down with a glass of salinized tears? Halfway to the convenience store for cheap candy, cigarettes, and mixers when you suddenly realize you didn’t even put on pants today? Or underwear?
Never fear. You can click through this playlist all night long. It will never leave you, unless the tracks are pulled down from the internet. The rhythms are more predictable than your last five relationships. And since they’re mostly love songs, they’ll bring out your inner teenage poet, so you can grab that Hilroy notebook from under your bed and scrabble away all of your deepest, darkest lonely-person thoughts.
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 Winehouse – Cupid
This girl may have had a rough go in life, but man could she sing a song.
The Knife – Heartbeats
