Let me cut to the chase: my musical taste is 100% weird.
I like everything from St. Vincent to Ted Nugent; from Courtney Barnett to Bronski Beat; from Au Revoir Simone to Nicki Minaj. I like music that grooves, peels your face off, and leaves you drowning in a puddle of sweat on the dance floor. I like music that gives you the feels, makes you question your place in the universe, and creates an atmosphere of ubiquitous sentimentality. I like music that’s devoid of all meaning—just shut up and dance already.
If you tried to chart my musical taste on a map, you’d start somewhere in Siberia and wind up finding me sleeping in the spare bedroom at your mom’s house eating a stale bag of Doritos. Yes, it’s that bizarre.
So, why’d I put this playlist together? Well, for three reasons really:
- I hope you’ll fall in love with at least one of these songs.
- It’s summer and you need some cruising tunes.
- Maybe you’ll rediscover a forgotten classic.
If you’re not feeling one of the tracks, skip ahead and see if there’s something else you like.
