Music Monday: Six Wins and a Trip to New York

For the first time in my life, I have to thank the Yankees. I grew up a fan of their interborough rivals, and being a Mets fan in New York during the reign of Jeter, Mo and Co. has permanently traumatized me, gifting me both an inferiority complex and incredible trust issues. But because of that awful monolith they built in the Bronx in the late-aughts, the Yankees were granted a college football bowl game.

It takes everything in me not to vomit when I hear the name Pinstripe Bowl, but I have the option of calling it the New Era bowl as well, which is far more palatable. Because that game is a very managable commute from my Long Island home, I’ll be able to make it to a Penn State bowl game as a student, something I didn’t think possible even at the beginning of the semester.

The Yankees owe me after years of torment, and I’ll gladly take it. Here for you today is a playlist all about New York. With the likes of The Strokes, Velvet Underground, the Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, and of course LCD Soundsystem, it’s rather eclectic, and hopefully will have something for everyone. New York, I love you, and you’re sure not bringing me down right about now.
