On the one hand, summer holidays are awesome. On the other, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of the season. So while we’re stoked to have Monday off, we’re not so excited about the prospect of colder days and wearing more layers. It’s with that in mind that we made this Summer Bummer mix, full of songs that deftly capture that melancholy end of summer vibe. Take a listen, and share your favorite sad summer jams in the comments. Keep reading »

A couple of weeks ago, we started talking about what version of the Rolling Stones’ song “Wild Horses” was our respective fave. Ami is partial to the recent “Voice” contestant cover, while I really love The Sundays version. I decided to put together a playlist with some of my favorite covers, alongside the originals (or at least an earlier version, in some cases) for comparison. The cover versions go first, with the original tracks following them, in the same order. Take a listen, and share with us in the comments your favorite cover song version.

Planning a Mother’s Day get-together? Maybe a formal brunch (if you’re still searching for recipes, we’ve got you covered) or a low-key hangout at your parent’s house? However you’re celebrating this weekend, you’re gonna need some tunes. Preferably some overtly mother-themed songs that span every genre from country to pop to rap. That’s where our Mother’s Day Mix comes in. It’s eclectic, it’s slightly uncomfortable at times, it will probably spark some interesting conversations, and most importantly, it’s all about moms. Check it out after the jump, and happy Mother’s Day to you and yours! Keep reading »
To cap off our Wanderlust content, what could be more fitting than a road trip playlist? Besides a car, gas money, and comfy pants, there’s really nothing more integral to a road trip’s success than a good selection of music. On our recent drive from Oregon to Tennessee, my boyfriend and I didn’t prepare nearly enough music, and we ran out of new tunes somewhere in eastern Wyoming. It was awful. I vowed to never let that happen again, so I polled The Frisky staff for their favorite road trip songs. Some of our selections specifically reference the road trip experience, but most of them are just awesome tunes that match the feeling you get when you see miles and miles of road stretched out in front of you. Check out our Spotify playlist after the jump, and feel free to download it before you hit the open road! Keep reading »
If only we could live our lives like a motivational ’80s movie montage. Well, guess what? Now you can!
