Hello, it’s me, I was wondering if you’d listen to me tell you what I’m listening to lately:
1. “California” — Grimes
When you just wanna cry but it’s so goddamn sunny all the time.
2. “WTF (Where They From)” — Missy Elliot
When you’re watching the new Missy Elliot video and you realize you recognize the street on which it’s filmed — it’s five minutes from where you work and you’re like mmmm yeah that’s how they do it where they from.
3. “Gold (Flume Re-work) — Chet Faker
This song is probably a guilty pleasure song I’m supposed to keep to myself but.
4. “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” — The Proclaimers
This will always be my Alaska song. It was snowing when I landed, then I got in the back of the car of these lovely strangers, friends of my sister. We sang this song loudly, drove straight, and passed no other cars for like a whole hour as the snow swirled (which was really different from strolling down the street on which Missy Elliot’s new music video was filmed.)
5. “Buy U A Drank” T-Pain (tiny desk concert version)
So this tiny desk concert really embodies my surprising, blossoming friendships with all these men as of late. T-Pain you teddy bear.
6. “Bloody Monster” Deqn Sue
Seriously though — befriend me Deqn Sue, befriend me.”Shimmy shimmy coco puff, you’re a crazy bitch. I don’t even like that word, but for you I think it fits….I think you should know I think you’re a shrew.”
