Electronic – Haezer – Troublemaker ft. Tumi
There is a strange music video trope of children with superpowers but this is super accurate. I was such a little d-bag in Middle School. If I had Matilda-type powers, I would fuck shit up.
Hip-Hop – J. Cole ft. Miguel – Power Trip
Miguel is impossible. If he is anywhere near a song it immediately gets hot and bothered.
Indie – Tanlines – Not the Same
The music video is INTERACTIVE. Goddamn. I spent a half hour on this in Starbucks. The thirty year old dude next to me thinks I’m crazy.
Jam of the Week – Juicy J ft. The Weeknd – One Of Those Nights
This song is somewhere between crying-to-myself-quietly and makin-love-in-the-club. I appreciate that kind of amalgamation.
Pop – Justin Timberlake – Mirrors
I know, I know. I have made JT my “pop” selection for two weeks in a row… but this song is even better than “Suit and Tie.”
Cover – Purity Ring – Grammy (Soulja Boy Cover)
So lemme be real with you. I had a lame-ish music blog from senior year of high school through freshman year at Swarthmore to the beginning of sophomore year when I transferred to Brown. BUT I “called” Purity Ring becoming a thing so I feel really vindicated in that.
Throwback – Deee-Lite – Groove Is in the Heart
This is super throwback (a.k.a 1990 a.k.a before I was born) but I went to ’90s-themed Senior Prom last night and ate many Gushers and was inspired.
