The Friday Five (8.1.14)

The Friday Five (8.1.14)

Happy Friday y’all!

Seafair weekend is underway in less than an hour which means I expect you in your two-piece swimsuit imminently, even if you’re at work. Who knows, it might get you that promotion you’ve always wanted. Or the HR complaint you’ve always dreaded. Either way, make nonstop “I’m On a Boat” references and you’ll be golden.

In just a few short hours I’ll be on a California beach with my feet in the sand and my hand around some questionable street food. Safety in culinary experiences is overrated. This week’s Friday Five playlist is dedicated to the sunshine-riddled dance parties that are in our very near future. Whether you’re on land or sea, reach in to your vast dance move repertoire and pull out the “Row the Boat.” Google it. It’ll make you a ton of new friends.

Now get ready for your weekly dose of Audio Prozac. Take every 2 hours (with food), then repeat.

1) Crystal Fighters & Feed Me – Love is All I Got

2) Basement Jaxx – Never Say Never

3) Avicii – Lay Me Down

4) tyDi ft. Dia Frampton – Stay (Frank Pole Remix)

5) RAC ft. Matthew Koma – Cheap Sunglasses

6) Klangkarussell ft. Will Heard – Sonnentanz (Sun Don’t Shine)

7) Banks – Beggin for Thread  

Have a ridiculously fun Seafair weekend. Wear sunglasses indoors and board shorts at night, anything goes. I’ll leave you with “I’m On a Boat” because the gratuitous weekend play count has to start somewhere. You’re welcome.

 

For more music and general insanity…
