It’s hard to think that some of the greatest songs of 2012 will one day be considered throwbacks and our future children will be embarrassed that we ever sang along to, “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” But before they become throwbacks, let’s think about how much we loved, overplayed and annoyed each other with the most viral songs of 2012.
Even though you said you hated them, we know you secretly loved them. Don’t be ashamed, just sing along.
It’s been a while, weary traveler, but we’re on the road again! Presents are in the truck, and there’s a big glass of eggnog awaiting your arrival. Let’s keep your spirits high with another playlist of too-good tunes, hand-picked just for you! Ready, set, here we gooo!
1. Hittin’ the Road: Walk the Moon – “Jenny”
I’ve got a total crush on Walk the Moon, and this song definitely isn’t helping. Time to set an awesome tone for the drive. Hit the gas and swoon away!
2. Cruise Control: Lykke Li & Drake – “Little Bit”
How about a double-dose of dreamy to really get you in the groove? Lykke Li and Drake are here to serenade you, soulful and sweet. Bob your head and take those turns carefully!
3. Pit Stop: Lovedrug – “Pink Champagne”
Halfway home? Time for some fuel! What better pick-me-up than a group of studly rockers singing just for you? Uh, the correct answer is nothing. So go on, listen to this love song of sorts and maybe even do a little steering wheel drumming. I won’t tell, promise!
4. Second Wind: Elbow – “Grounds for Divorce”
Hard-hitting and gritty, this song is a must for all long drives. Crack the windows, hot stuff, those dance moves are too hot to handle and you’re foggin’ it up in here.
5. Final Stretch – The Divine Fits – “Would That Not Be Nice”
That killer base line is all you need to drive it right on home. It’s smooth sailing for the last few miles! So smooth that I’m pretty sure you just passed your house. But alas, you’ve arrived, safe and totally sound!
Don’t forget to listen carefully, cadillac cuties, and obey the rules of rock!
Hey, maybe next time we can carpool?
Winter weather got you down? I’ve got five little ditties to turn that gloomy day frown upside down! It may be raining cats and dogs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a party animal!
The Black Keys – “Lonely Boy”
This video alone should be enough to get you out of that recliner and dancing on your coffee table. It’s okay, no one has to know about your pink robe. Shake your money-maker, hot stuff! But don’t knock over your fancy Rodarte mug.
Robyn – “Dancing On My Own”
Fact: This song is a LuLu*s favorite and was recently played loud (on repeat) at the birthday party of our fabulous Web Operations Manager! And guess what? Even the boys of Lulus.com got in on that action (and they know all the words).
Electric Guest – “This Head I Hold”
Piano riff. Drum roll. Annnnd commence groove mode. Rain rain, go away!
Walk the Moon – “Anna Sun”
This lyric: “We got no money, but we got hu-heeeaaart. We’re gonna rattle this ghost town!” makes me want to change the world. Or at least change out of my sweats. They just make it so easy to get jiggy with it! Am I right?!
Neon Trees – “Everybody Talks”
If you can sit still while watching/listening to Tyler Glenn, well, you have more self control than I do. Put on a little Neon Trees and it’s insta-sunshine! You’re more than welcome to sing this one at the top of your lungs. It’s more fun that way!
There you have it! Beat the rainy day blues in just five songs, and get your groove back!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, loves! Time for peppermint mochas, tights & boots, and ugly sweaters! Unless you’re a total scrooge. And in that case… Perk up, buttercup! It’s the ho-ho-holiday season, and here at LuLu*s, the bells are-a-jinglin’! Us ladies (and gents) are hard at work being Santa’s most fashionable elves, and we’re playing those holiday tunes loud!
I got to thinking about which songs put me in the most holiday of spirits, and here are some of my favorites! Some classics, one that may surprise you, and a couple that I just can’t resist!
We give you sneak peeks of the cute clothes and behind the scenes studio madness on our instagram, so why not let you in on the music we blast in the studio during our product shot sessions?
