your weekend playlist (of the pre-game variety)

the weekend’s here, people. time to act like it.

we all have that friend who has horrible taste in music, yet insists on playing dj while you and your other friends are all pre-gaming together. have you realized that you’ve actually been listening to “backstreet boys pandora” for the last 89 fridays in a row together now?

don’t be that friend.

wait…are you that friend?

okay, don’t panic. this is what i’m here for! here’s a playlist for you of the top 10 songs (in no particular order) you should be playing to pump you and your friends up tonight before going out. they’ll be so impressed, you might get a few free shots out of it.

1. “Heads Will Roll” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

2. “MoneyGrabber” by Fitz and the Tantrums

3. “The Seed (2.0)” by The Roots featuring Cody ChesnuTT

4. “Move Like U Stole It” by ZZ Ward (Paul Oakenfold remix)

banks (i could get real punny here but i won’t)

banksonly have time for a quick blurb here, i’m a verrrrrrrry important person.

banks gained popularity late this year with the release of her album goddess. and a goddess she is. (that was corny).

check out “beggin for thread” by banks. i just started listening to her the other day and this is her biggest single so far. she has a fabulous voice that reminds me a little bit of the late aaliyah and she’s super cool and pretty and i wanna be her.

#tbt: “hurricane” by bob dylan

just a quick post to get my thoughts down somewhere tangible.

recent events in ferguson and new york reminded me of this song…an old classic that i love and hadn’t listened to in a while. also speaks to some huge issues we have in this current day and age…listen to the lyrics. it’s a true story.
