Fuck tha Police – N.W.A.
Insane how many privileged white kids including myself sing along to this, but do so like they mean it and in turn actually feel the sentiment right along with Cube, Ren, E, Yella and Dre. Like listen to this song and picture a cop. You hate him right? Even if you’re in the socioeconomic class cops only treat well. Works like a charm, I guess that’s the wondrous power of music!
Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) – Shakira
Hilarious this one came up. Just fantastic. We all remember the dance, and it’s just as great as it was in 2010.
RIP Shakira and Pique’s relationship.
Gucci Gucci by Kreayshawn
Here’s how you know I’m actually being honest with these hard shuffles. This is so embarrassing…
You have to admit it’s really catchy… I uhh I just have it cus it was so popular at the time… C’mon, she uses an A$AP line, A$AP is cool…
Ahh why even try and defend it?
Yeah. I’m a boner and have Gucci Gucci by Kreayshawn on my iPod, okay? Happy?
One Day – Matisyahu
Remember when Matisyahu was low key HUGE? The Sandy Koufax of reggae, truly one of a kind.
Where Is My Mind by The Pixies
Through and through indie banger. The Pixies have quietly been an unreal band for several years, and songs like this are why.
And what better a song for Fight Club?
Run It by Chris Brown
Ahh, just reminds me of the days when Chris Brown was just that kid who could slide on his head and not a superstar abuser.
Oh yeah, and boners at middle school dances. Those were the days…
The Painter by I’m from Barcelona
I’m genuinely glad I get to show you this song.
This is so simple, so indie and just a great fucking song. It’s a highly uplifting blend of instruments, most notably the damn-near-ska horns. It’s like a louder, brighter and bolder Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros track, but far more effortless than anything you’d expect from them.
I’d be surprised if you’ve heard this one before, and if you do, trust me, you’ll be happy you did.
