Where Is My Mind? by The Pixies: a chaotic and surprisingly repetitive track, this song mostly brings back memories of Fight Club for me. A coworker was playing it in the office and it was a nice throwback song to bump and was especially helpful on my morning drives.
Jealous by Labrinth: This is me hopping with two feet onto the Labrinth bandwagon. After bumping Don’t Fence Me In all last week, I dove headfirst into Labrinth’s discography and Jealous was the song I kept coming back to. It’s sad and haunting and beautiful with lines like “I’m jealous of the way you’re happy without me”
Take Good Care of My Baby by Bobby Vee: an oldies track that came on my Spotify shuffle. I always loves listening to oldies on my morning drives because it always puts me in a good mood and this song is perfect for it. It’s got a good rhythm, it’s unbeat and the lyrics are sad but the way the lyrics are sung makes you feel good and at ease.
How Did I Get Here by Offset f/ J. Cole: still not sure how I feel about Offset, the solo artist but holy shit a J. Cole verse! Cole continues to steal the show on other people’s tracks and pile up his body count. Truthfully, he mails in this verse too and it’s still fire. Offset as a whole isn’t bad and I actually will bump his album in time. But for now, I only came for the J. Cole verse.
Be Like Me by Lil Pump f/ Lil Wayne: it took a Lil Wayne feature for me to listen to Lil Pump but here we are. Surprisingly, Lil Pump has a couple enlightening moments: “I’m a millionaire, but I don’t know how to read//I’m a role model that these kids wanna be” and “You can talk shit about me everyday//But I’m still rich at the end of the day”: I see no lies there. Pump is part of Hip Hop whether we like it or not and now he’s got a Lil Wayne cosign to back it up.
New York, I love You but You’re Bringing Me Down by LCD Soundsystem: one of my personal favorite songs. I fell in love with this song when I heard it live and now each time I hear it on Spotify it brings me back to that moment. Check out the live video below for a taste of what I mean but regardless, this song is a classic in any medium.
Money in the Way by 2 Chainz: BIG MOOD. This track just makes me feel good. It’s bouncing and swaggering and its Dos Cadenas at his best. Phenomenal new album as well that everyone has gotta check out: Rap or Go to the League.
