When I’m feeling down, I like to distract myself with the happiest playlist I can find, but sometimes the only thing that helps is some miserable music to match your mood. If you feel like wallowing this holiday season, drown your sorrows in this melancholy Christmas playlist. … READ MORE »

If I’m in the mood to cry, I know exactly how to make it happen: I have a Spotify playlist called “Saddies” that’s the perfect soundtrack for a good, old fashioned waterworks sesh. Obviously, I have some typical tearjerkers on there like “Unchained Melody” and “I Will Always Love You,” but the majority of… READ MORE »

While many people view their workout music as a deeply personal choice (I’m partial to “Alan Jackson’s Greatest Hits” when I hit the treadmill), there’s a scientific reason that some songs get your blood pumping more than others. In addition to beats per minute (BPM) that match up to a person’s running stride and heart… READ MORE »

A new year is upon us, but not before we party hard during the last few minutes of 2013!

Yes, I’m aware that we haven’t even quite made it through Christmas yet, but it can’t hurt to think ahead, right? I’ve got New Year’s Eve on the brain, and I’m already polishing my dancin’ shoes.

For the first time in years, I’m not hosting all of my friends for New Year’s Eve,… READ MORE »

This morning on my way into work, John Mayer’s “Assassin” came on my iTunes, and I said “Ugh, this song is so underrated.” Then I realized I said it out loud on the train and the lady next to me shot me one of those “whatever you say” glares, having no idea what I was… READ MORE »

It’s official. Fall is here to stay, and the same old dance jams of this summer’s BBQs and lazy beach days feel not quite right.  Fall music is music you listen to wrapped in a scarf and sipping hot chocolate, walking thru freshly raked leaves. Fall music has a little more oomph, because fall is… READ MORE »

See that video up there? Click that little arrow. Watch Beyonce Giselle Knowles, master of the graceful recovery and mother of America’s baby Blue Ivy, as she slays my favorite new song, “Grown Woman.” I have spent a fair amount of time watching this performance, imagining the stages leading up to my inevitable rapture if I… READ MORE »

I don’t know about y’all, but it’s SUMMER over here in Friskyland. It’s passed from balmy and pleasant to hot like fire and sweaty outside — my favorite time of year! Summer means barbecues, it means the beach, it means cold drinks and laughter and fireflies and watching the stars — or the lights of… READ MORE »

If only we could live our lives like a motivational ’80s movie montage. Well, guess what? Now you can! That’s right, I’ve created a weekend playlist chock full of awesome, rockin’ motivational tracks from some of our fave ’80s movies, like “Real Genius,” “Karate Kid” and “The Breakfast Club.” Check it out and use it… READ MORE »

We were saddened to hear that Divinyls singer Chrissy Amphlett passed away over the weekend, after a long battle with breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. Aphlett and her bandmate Mark McEntee shot to fame over their early ’90s ode to masturbation, “I Touch Myself.”

“Chrissy’s light burns so very brightly. Hers was a… READ MORE »

The Violent Femmes said it best: “You can just kiss off into the air.” There’s something awesome about a snarky, diss song. For the sake of brevity, I’ve limited this mix to mostly diss songs of the “kiss off” variety (a separate mix of the best artist-to-artist diss tracks will be forthcoming), directed at ex-lovers,… READ MORE »

Happy Friday! We’re stoked because the new movie “The Sapphires,” based on the real life story of the first aboriginal girl group in Australia, is finally in theaters. Jessica is stoked because it stars her Number One Dude Crush Chris O’Dowd, but the rest of us are just excited for the music. In honor of… READ MORE »

Awkward backstory: I was making this playlist and asked a bunch of friends to suggest their favorite “sexy vocalists”. This is a weird category, of course, because it’s not necessarily about a song being about sex, per se; it’s about vocalists who just sound super sexy, with voices full of aching and longing (or whatever).

For much of the mid-2000s I had a side gig playing records. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a DJ, in that I can’t scratch or really beat match, but some friends and I had a lot of fun DJ-ing a regular weekly party for a while. It was in Philly at a club that flaunted… READ MORE »
