Working on a new playlist for the pod-device for the pickup line. This list is just the beginning, suggestions are welcome, and if this year is anything like years past I need another 30 songs to actually keep me entertained for the duration.
Can you feel it – The Jacksons. Yes I had to, mostly because this song rocks and also because anything Jackson is so (wait for it) the new black right now.
Through the fire – Chaka Khan – pickup day is often unusually hot and sunny and I’ve forgotten to bring a hat the last three years.
Candyman – Cornershop – so NOT packing almonds and raisins this year. I’m all about the jellybeans baby.
Believe – Q-Tip (feat D’Angelo) – I will end up with second choices so good I will forget that I didn’t get my first choices.
As – George Michael (feat Mary J. Blige) – The only thing better than George and Mary covering Stevie is…
Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing – Stevie Wonder – Stevie singing a song that is telling me not to worry about the lineup or my box or anything really.
These 3 Sins – Gomez – specifically lust, ambition and greed. If I only had to pick three for the festival, these would make the short list.
Black Star – Thieves in the night – the words in this song remind me of a good Tarantino conversation.
Get By – Talib Kweli (feat Jay Z, Kanye West,Mos Def and Busta Rymes) – begins with ‘Good Morning Vietnam!!!’
Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby – Dinah Washington on Verve Remixed – starts out with like a minute of instrumental cowbell. There’s always room for cowbell.
Lust for life – Iggy Pop – Choose imagining young Ewan in the best execution of skinny jeans on a dude in the opening sequence of Trainspotting.
And when you finally, FINALLY get to pick up your tickets end it like every season of the O.C.
Hallelujah – OC (original Cohen)
