The past week has been full of ups and downs, from the weather changes to our own emotional states as we realize that it’s already so far into the semester.
So in light of that, I decided to make this week’s playlist a mixture of moods. I chose some weekend vibes with songs like “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys and “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae, and to celebrate the fact that (most of us) survived this week, I added songs like “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees and “I will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor. Just for fun, I decided to throw in some classics from Amy Winehouse and Smash Mouth, so enjoy.
Fun fact about the song “All Star”: It was released on May 4th, 1999 as the second song on Smashmouth’s Astro Lounge album, and rose to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (which I think should’ve been no. #1). The smash hit (see what I did there) was written by Greg Camp, the founding guitarist for Smash Mouth. If you want to see the most 90s thing possible, check out the music video for “All Star” below.
Take it easy,
