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.
Normally, when I think “acoustic version” the first thing I think of is not “cello, violin, piano version”. I normally think “dirty guy in a bar playing a bad Bob Dylan cover”.
But this charming version of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’sLittle Shadow is a special acoustic track. It’s quaint, dignified, polite – Victorian teatime with a blend of Ra Ra Riot under leafy green tree boughs. I can totally imagine my aunts planning my wedding to a pre-arranged Lord while Karen O sings (in a corset, of course..et)
Go….and listen to this song… by Santigold and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I like the idea of this pairing, and when I saw that they collaborated on this song my nerdy initial response was: ‘I wonder if they’re friends in real life?’ (because the inner geek in me hopes so). I look forward to listening to new music from either or both of these ladies. Apparently Q-tip helped produce the song as well. Click below to have a listen.
Also, fellow Canadians, don’t forget to go out and VOTE today
I have FINALLY finished a playlist, and I made it extra long to compensate for the delay. Hopefully you will enjoy the mash-up of older and new-ish songs as well as some of my musical throwbacks to the summer and California.
