All right, so I’ve been too busy working my butt off rehearsing for the mainstage production of “Hamlet” (which you should totally go see this weekend) to spend any reasonable amount of time on a playlist for this weekend. I apologize for the inconvenience, and promise to be back on my “A” game next time around.
…that said, I think a hodgepodge of mid-00’s pop gems should do just fine as a substitute. Enjoy!
The Chillout: Where Is The Love – Black Eyed Peas ft. Justin Timberlake
After a long week of intellectual engagement, this jam should serve as the perfect segue into your weekend: it’s socially conscious and fun!
The Pregame: Pop – NSYNC
Hate on boy bands all you like. Any mainstream pop group that can fuse elements of acid house, glitch and breakbeat into something this catchy is good in my book.
The Party: Yeah – Usher
Every. Bat/bar mitzvah party. Ever.
The After-Party: Too Little Too Late – JoJo
Old Kenyon romance go sour? JoJo feels your pain.
The Morning After: Come Clean – Hilary Duff
Not really sure why this one’s here, but it seems like a good soundtrack choice for those little Sunday untagging sprees we all find ourselves embarking on from time to time …
