"Love Is The Answer Featuring Pharrell" by Aloe Blacc

Love Is The Answer by Aloe Blacc

I’m gonna tell you what to do
Just believe that love is the only thing we have that’s true

Do you ever play a song and you instantly feel good? A feeling like no one can rain on your parade because goddammit IT IS YOUR DAY. Well, Aloe Blacc with a production from Pharrell Williams may have re-imagined Bill Wither’s Lovely Day and I really can’t complain but it’s groovy as hell.

I don’t know about you but Mondays should always start like this.

Recommended to fans of: John Legend & Mayer Hawthorne

P.S. You should also listen to Aloe Blacc’s I Need A Dollar!

Royals (Lorde Cover) by Mayer Hawthorne

That kind of lux just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz

Mayer Hawthorne’s suave rendition of Lorde’s Royals has been on heavy rotation these past few days. The way MH emphasizes “gold teeth, grey goose”, makes the track so alluring.  My friend pointed out this cover and it’s too good not to share. Have a slice of this gucci stuff.

The Hangover 

n. something remaining behind from a former period

It has been a week since my crew’s trip to Boracay. It’s hard to get over the 12-hour happy hour by the beach while endlessly talking with my bestmates.

Steve Aoki & Laidback Luke - Turbulence Featuring Lil Jon02. Swedish House Mafia - Don’t You Worry Child (Radio Edit) [feat. John Martin]03. Jack Back - Wild One Two Featuring David Guetta, Nicky Romero & Sia04. Mayer Hawthorne - Henny & Gingerale (Bakaboyz B-Mix)05. Tinie Tempah - Pass Out06. Theophilus London - Starry Eyed (Remix)07. Nicki Minaj - The Boys Featuring Cassie08. Kylie Minogue - Timebomb09. Jason Derulo - Don’t Wanna Go Home10. Rita Ora - How We Do (Party)11.

Slightly Stoopid - Leaving On A Jet PlaneDOWNLOAD ZIP FILE // LISTEN ON 8TRACKS

"Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home."

P.S. The last few songs are dedicated to my crew so they are slightly off track from the rest of the playlist.

Henny & Gingerale by Mayer Hawthorne (Funk)

I got my cup and I’m filling it up
I can’t get enough

Mayer Hawthooooooorne, what a ladies man! Must be nice hanging out with this guy. Call me, maybe? Then let’s break out that bottle of Cognac you’re singing about.

P.S. I can’t get enough of the original so here’s an extended mix of Henny & Gingerale!

xx,

I’ll be the ginger to your henny!

SOME KIND OF FUNK
As a kid, my parents would play disco music around the house. I loved to dance to it (the embarrassing kind). Lately, I’ve been collecting songs that are similar to that sound or that feeling I get when I was a kid. Here’s what I’ve come up with. A 15-track disco inspired playlist that ranges from electro-indie to dance music. I actually have a lot to celebrate this week so this is very fitting and Halloween is around the corner too. Don’t forget to bust a move like my favorite dancer, Robyn.

A Long Time (Chromeo Remix) by Mayer Hawthorne

Never liked to play it safe

Listen as Chromeo takes a spin on Mayer Hawthorne’s A Long Time which is the first single on his upcoming album this October, How Do You Do. This post is actually an excuse to post Chromeo’s video of When The Night Falls Featuring Solange Knowles. It’s a hilarious video! Watch as chicks get pregnant at the stroke of guitar string. How awesome!

Listen to Mayer Hawthorne’s cover of When The Night Falls!
