Eargasm: The Dish

1 Apr

As the weekend comes upon us, I’m of one mind, and it’s no wonder – weekends mean dinner parties with friends! In anticipation of these glorious occasions, I’ve been doing a little play-listing to come up with the perfect mix for a decadent evening of friends, food and fun (is there anything else, really?).  Now here to tantalize your eardrums, an appeteaser of my secret society dining mix:

Martin Sloveig & Dragonette Hello – Welcome to the party; let’s get the evening started with the casual niceties.  An upbeat track to get the ice a-breakin is exactly what you need.  So grab a cocktail, and come in to say “hello”.

Chelley Took the Night – A healthy sense of confidence is key, so while you’re checking out the crew, you do YOU and strut your stuff.  While this track may take it a bit too far, the sentiment is right – either way it’s a happnin’ jam to get your crowd in the party zone.

PhantogramMouthful of Diamonds – Dinner is served; hopefully you’re getting a mouthful of delicious eats and an earful of this splendid song.  It’s the perfect track to cool the mood a bit while still keeping your electronic jam train on the rails.  And who doesn’t love Phantogram, really?

AdeleRolling in the Deep – This track is the money.  Sure, Adele is everywhere right now, but I’ll give credit where it’s due.  If your dinner guests aren’t feeling this, you may want to check for a pulse.  I normally wouldn’t go here, but I recently heard this track spun by a DJ at an event and the peeps lurved it; so eat it up, folks.

PrinceKiss – The extent of my love for this song transcends generations.  Prince may not have brought sexy back, but didn’t he have it all along?  Whether you’re getting your sweets on or perhaps an alcohol laced caffeinated beverage (Coffee + Kahlua, hullllo?!), this song is the perfect dessert complement.

I’m not going to tell you to get your debauchery on… you know what’s coming.  But keep it classy and keep those great tracks rolling throughout the night.  Hope you enjoyed your peek at the supper club playlist.  Feast your ears!

Eargasm: Mash Up, Not Mush Up

2 Feb

I’m going to go ahead and throw a disclaimer at the beginning of this mash up… yes, it’s February, and yes, there’s a pretty love-drenched “holiday” just around the corner…. BUT seriously folks, these are just some songs I happen to be feeling at the moment; nothing sentimental to it.  Should YOU choose to go there and get all mushy, I’m not judging – much.

Penny & the QuartersYou and Me – Whether you’ve seen Blue Valentine or not, the soulful crooning in this track is bound to grab at your emotions.  I’m digging the vintage sound and – ok, it does help that when I hear it, I see Ryan Gosling in my mind… guilty!

RobynHang with Me – This dancey track is perfect for picturing yourself in an 80’s dance montage getting your gym sweat on.  It’s got a seriously catchy beat with a message that should never be overlooked: if homegirl tells you not to fall for her, you best be listenin.  Although, Robyn, you do make it so difficult to heed your words.

Citizen CopeJericho – Sexy song alert!  The flow Mr. Cope’s sporting is twangy and manages to seep deep under your skin – the longing in his voice is palpable.   Ladies, if you’re not feeling a little longing after giving this a listen, go check yourself for a pulse.

AdeleSomeone Like You­ – I’m counting down the days till 21, Adele’s sophomore album, comes out in the US (Feb 22, where are you?!)  She is hands down one of the most stunning voices out there right now, and this song is hauntingly beautiful + incredibly relatable.  For now, this song will have to be my fix.  You’re welcome.

Fitz & the TantrumsL.O.V. – Ok, so I’ve already shared the amazing-ness that is F&TT with you (check their track MoneyGrabber here), but this song is slowly becoming my favorite off the album.  You’re going to L.O.V. love this track, too – promise!

Hope you’re lovin these Eargasmic Tracks – catch ya next time, ya big mushes.
