MusicLuLu*s Weekend Playlist: Best of 2012 Part One

Let’s be honest, one of the best parts about each year coming to a close is sitting down to recall all of the amazing music from throughout the year. Whether discovering brand new artists or falling more in love with fresh tracks from old favorites, we all find standouts; those songs that will stick with you long after the year is over. I’ve put together a list of songs that I still can’t get enough of… my top five of 2012!

“Five Seconds” – Twin Shadow

This song combines a few of my favorite things: 80′s synth, catchy lyrics, and the urge to dance the night away! You, too? Okay then, get down with your bad self!

 

“Youth Without Youth” – Metric

Hard-hitting and always blatantly honest, Metric hits the jackpot with this stellar track. Emily Haines is a rock ‘n’ roll goddess, and I pretty much want to be her when I grow up. No lie.

 

“Fineshrine” – Purity Ring

Purity Ring is, without a doubt, one of my favorite newcomers from this year. Both dreamy and delightful, this sweet single is one that I’m sure I’ve played one hundred times too many. But who’s really counting?

 

“It’s Time” – Imagine Dragons

An anthem of sorts, for all us misfits, “It’s Time” is sure to give you a heaping helping of the warm fuzzies. Turn it on, turn it up, and take over the world! Figuratively speaking.

 

“Feel So Close” – Calvin Harris

I’m a sucker for a catchy love song, especially when it’s sung by Calvin Harris (Swoon, much?). This song stood out amongst hundreds and it still makes my heart go pitter patter!

And as it turns out, I couldn’t choose just five awesome songs from 2012, so stay tuned for part two…!

MusicLuLu*s Weekend Playlist: Goodbye 2012

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.

 

1. Carly Rae Jepsen – “Call Me, Maybe”


 

2. Gotye – “Somebody That I Used To Know”

 

3. Psy – “Gangnam Style” 

 

4. Nicki Minaj – “Starships”

 

5. Fun – “We Are Young”

 

Which one will be your karaoke go-to in 2013?

MusicLuLu*s Weekend Playlist: Home for the Holidays Part 2!

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?
