This Playlist App Might Be The Cure For The Common Party Douche

You know that moment in college when you'd be hosting a great party, and just as you were starting to feel smug about planning such a great night, some douchebag with a guitar turned off the music and started playing "Wonderwall" on his cheap guitar? While some certainly carry this habit into adulthood, most douches seem to just take on an even more obnoxiou…

Face The Music: 3 Primping Playlists For Any Occasion

I’m a big believer in the rituals of going out: having some time to yourself to shower, dress, primp, style, and psyche yourself up before barreling into the night (or day) can really set the tone for your excursion. Part of my ritual involves creating meticulous Spotify playlists for specific moods, occasions, or seasons. Sometime…

We all know that music can powerfully affect emotions, changing how you feel completely or intensifying the mood you’re already in.

STD Playlist For The Party In Your Pants

When a red bump appeared on my crotch, I listened to Antony and the Johnson’s sad album about a dying tranny, “I Am A Bird Now,” while I waited to see a doctor at the walk-in clinic. Clearly, I’m a little dramatic and also, what I thought was the herp wound up just…

Mind Of Man: Now Playing — Crappy Love Songs

I just can’t emotionally or physically connect with a woman unless there is some kind of terrible music playing. When it comes to love and romance, timing is everything. There is so little choice when it comes to the fickle demands of your heart. And it’s the same with the music that serves as the…

Runway DJ: New York Fashion Week Music

Fashion Week isn't just an event for seeing next season's clothes and spotting celebs sitting front row. It's also one of the best places to hear new music (and remember songs that you'd long forgotten). While live music was a huge trend for Fall 2009 -- Zac Posen had the 5…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Postelles Get Happy

When you listen to the Postelles, you want to start dancing, and not in a bump-and-grind kind of way. I was listening to "White Night" as I walked home one night, and I almost starting doing the Twist right there on the sidewalk. I was able to hold back, but you might not…

Get Your Rocks Off: The Filthy Youth’s Breakup Mix

We've already endorsed Ed Westwick, the lad who acts the role of playboy Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl. So, when we heard that he's in a UK-based band called the Filthy Youth, he became too perfect for words. Ed aside, the Filthy Youth's indie punk beats are the kind that make you want to drink…

Get Your Rocks Off: Girl Talk’s Songs To Send To Your Ex-Girlfriend…

Girl Talk is a DJ with a misleading name -- there's nothing feminine or cutesy about him. He does, however, happen to be a handsome lad by the name of Gregg Gillis. Gillis' songs are no less than genius. He manages to sample dozens of artists in a single track. On his latest album, "Feed…

Soundtrack To The DNC: Hillary Clinton’s Dream Playlist

Politicians aren't exactly known for having musical taste, but you would expect the people who throw big events like, I dunno, the Democratic National Convention, would do a better job of picking cool music to introduce some of their most important speakers. That's why it struck me as an odd choice to have Hillary Clinto…

Get Your Rocks Off: a’tris’ Love Is An Emotional Rollercoaster Playlist

Boston-based band a'tris got their early musical inspiration from an unusual source -- Sesame Street. Lead singer and pianist Mason Taylor started his musical career pounding away at one key on his Sesame Street keyboard, that of Oscar the Grouch, conveniently our favorite Muppet as well. Since then, the collaboration between music and what's o…

Let’s Make A Muxtape, Shall We?

So, this week I decided to make an entire mixtape of songs with the word "cry" in the title, because I am a giant cry baby. I cried on Friday night! And on Sunday! Oh, and last night when I saw this Cheerios commercial that I love. Anyway, some of the greatest songs in the…

Get Your Rocks Off: Nina Persson’s Heartbreak Hymns Playlist

Chances are, you probably remember Nina Persson as the angelic front woman for the band The Cardigans -- remember their hit "Lovefool"? That was some goodness.
