July '18 Playlist
Hello, lovelies! Starting now I want to put out approximately 30 song playlists every month that included music that either got released or I discovered in the past month. Hopefully I can inspire you to listen to some new music and introduce you to some new favorites!
This month is non-standard. Usually I'll post my monthly playlist in the middle of the month, but since this is the first one and it fell at a kind of awkward time, I might post a themed mini-playlist on the 15th. In the meantime there is a link to my Spotify in the top bar if you'd like to peruse my other playlists.
I don't have much else to say, but I thought it might be funny to come up with some superlatives to describe a few tracks on the playlist (actually, this was my roommate's idea), so check out the list below if you're interested!
Let me know what you think. Did you like the songs? Any favorites? Did any lyrics stick out to you? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
1. Best song to perform an impromptu interpretive dance to
Truly any song by Florence Welch could deserve this title with the ethereal quality her music takes on, but something about "Big God" screams interpretive dance. I imagine something along the lines of Taylor Swift in her "Shake it Off" video style of dance.
2. Best song to listen to if you hate someone named Jennifer
"You & Jennifer" by bülow might just be one of the funniest tracks released in June. Even if you don't know or hate anyone actually named Jennifer, we all have a metaphorical Jennifer in our lives that we wish, well, wasn't.
3. Best song to listen to if you have exactly one minute
All fifteen tracks on this EP are exactly one minute and each one has a lot of personality and charm, but in my opinion "Silly Sam" by Tierra Whack takes the cake for best 60 second song. Pro tip: I frequently use this project as a timer for taking 15 minute showers.
Oh and this album has a really cool visual you can check out here.
4. Best song to listen to when you want to remember you're broke
Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne come together on "Rich Sex" to remind us all that middle to low income sex is unacceptable. However, if you really want to feel insignificant I recommend listening to EVERYTHING IS LOVE by The Carters.
5. Best song to play at Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's wedding
When Kelsy Karter said, "I'm so in love / I can't believe it's only been seventeen days / I'm losing my shit / Ain't never felt this way" on her track "Out of Drugs", I imagine the newly minted couple felt that.
