5 Songs for the Weekend

So it’s an away game, another playlist, another pain in the ass. I know, I know. But you have to make the mix to continue drinking all day while we prep for the Iowa game, right?

At this point, we’ve begun to cover every genre. This week has even more new songs from dubstep artists, as well as the usual Mr. Kanye West. As we try to diversify the songs for the playlist, keep in mind that some songs just aren’t right for the party (like the new Glee soundtrack), and that this party playlist is solely for the purpose of shakin’ asses. Those offended easily may not enjoy this week’s selections, as all contain a variety of uses of the F-word.

1. Kanye West-So Appalled
The newest song from G.O.O.D Fridays is the first song that, when you try to download it, asks for an age verification due to inappropriate content (Hooray for bad words!). “So Appalled” is a great track featuring H to the Izzle, HOVA, a.k.a. Jay -Z, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz, and Cyhi the Prynce. A slower song compared to “Monster” and “Power,” this track features one of the best choruses with “I mean this shit is fuckin’ ridiculous.”

2. Flux Pavilion-The Night Goes On
This song, recommended by some dubstep fiends, actually got my interest with the slow, rhythmical reggae beat used in conjunction with the womp-womps and whatnot that electronic music brings. At only 5:45, the song is short compared to most dubstep, but carries a good beat that can keep the party going at a slow, yet more sexual, rate (if that’s what you’re going for, but you may need to clean the walls).

3. You, Me and Everyone We Know-Livin’ Th’ Dream
The first song released from YMAEWK’s newest album is definitely is not a love song with lyrics like “you can’t be dumb enough to dream so big/you’re only unique until compared to every other worthless fuck.” Now this is actually a remastered version released for this album, from an earlier version released on an EP in 2006. True fans may not like this watered down version, but for everyone else, this will be your new pop-punk anthem.

4. Lil’ Wayne-What’s Wrong With Them
First off, it features the hottest girl in the game, Nikki Minaj, so you already have a reason to listen: To find out what the hell she says this time. The chorus is “what the fuck is wrong with them,” from Ms. Minaj. Coming from “I am Not a Human Being,” released on Wayne’s birthday on Monday, this track is sure to hit iTunes in a matter of minutes as the next best track. Coming in at three and a half minutes, this is the kind of track that will be remixed and sampled consistently for the next few months.

5. Valencia-Dancing With a Ghost
This song, whether it was inspired or based off of the cheesy Patrick Swayze movie “Ghost,” shows the talent of alt-rockers Valencia. This song is by no means as vulgar a some of these other songs, so this may be the one for you if you turned down the past four. Fans of the band can see Valencia at local venues, as they tend to tour central PA, mainly Altoona, pretty often.
