The jump off for this month’s playlist is my current guilty pleasure song, “Don’t Drop That Thun Thun” by the Finatticz. Unfortunately, the song is no longer on Spotify, so I can’t share it with you on this playlist, but follow the link above and pretty pretty please check it out, as long as you promise not to think different of me for loving it…
So tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Eek! Do you have you fingers crossed, garlic ready, black cats locked up, mirrors secured, ladders put away?!?! No, I’m really not that superstitious (other than knocking on wood), but because it’s Friday the 13th, it seems like a good night for movie night – that is to watch Friday the 13th.
For this month’s playlist and in honor of the Fourth of July, I wanted to celebrate America’s greatest contribution to music – rock n’ roll. I began thinking about who I would consider the best American rock bands and tried to go from there in formulating this mix. It was actually really hard for me to narrow this playlist down because there are just so many great American bands. I noodled for quite some time and felt pretty bad when some bands simply had to be cut, but I figured that you probably didn’t need a 50 song playlist. I also made a pact with myself going in to keep it under 18 songs (oh, it’s so hard).
Music is a huge part of my life, so every month I’m going to post a playlist of about 12 tracks (maybe more, maybe less) that I’m currently listening to. They might be new songs that I’m obsessed with, old songs that I’ve forgotten about and recently reconnected with, or songs that I think conjure up the feel of the season. For example, I’ve already started thinking that my July mix will be heavy on classic rock and American bands in celebration of the Fourth of July.
