Indie – Sufjan Stevens – “Mr. Frosty Man”
I worship Sufjan Stevens. This guy is simultaneously (a) the strangest hipster of all time and (b) possibly a manifestation of all goodness in the world. Here’s the awesomely gory video for “Mr. Frosty Man” off his upcoming Christmas-themed box set, “Silver & Gold.” Additionally, the “Sufjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant on Ice” Christmas tour, (not making that up) is coming to Providence!
Middle School Pop Punk Banger – Bowling for Soup – “Girl All The Bad Guys Want”
So much angst I straight up didn’t understand as a 13 year old, but I totally empathized with the nerdy dude who only “got’s a moped … moped… moped.” I think that I learned what a moped was in 2007.
Hip-Hop – Kendrick Lamar – “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”
It took me such a long time to figure out he was saying “vibe.” Bitch don’t kill my fight? Bitch don’t kill my vit(amin)?
PBR&B – Kenna – “Long Gone”
An Alfred Hitchcock homage to the obsession with celebrity and the malaise of our broken society. But also just a fun lil’ jam.
Throwback – TLC – “Unpretty (Follow Me Remix)”
I helped (a teeny bit) to make the Friday night Market Shares’ Party’s playlist and, let me say, the saddest thing about it being broken up at 12:30 AM was that there was a 5-hour long TLC-heavy playlist ready to go. 🙁
Pop – Alicia Keys – “Girl on Fire”
LoOoOoOoOok at Alicia. Damn girl. Being a mom and rocking purple lipstick like it’s fucking nothing. (Ed.- I thought this was about Katniss Everdeen. Clearly it’s not.)
Jam of the Week – Youngblood Hawkes – “We Come Running”
HALLOWEEK WOOO A HAPPY SOUNDING SONG YOU CAN SING!
