“Lazy Line Painter Jane” – Belle and Sebastian This classic ‘90s indie song was stuck in my head for the majority of last week, thanks in large part to a rolling bass that intensifies at the end and guest vocals from Monica Queen. There’s some speculation online as to what this song is about, whether it be self-pleasure or a girl escaping from home with t...

This week has seen the unfortunate and sudden passing of Chadwick Boseman at the age of 43 after a private four year battle with colon cancer. Though Boseman had only been in the public consciousness as an actor for less than a decade, he made quite an indelible impact. Through his portrayals of histo...

“Burning Down the House” – The Talking Heads (Trigger warning) It was a jarring summer, full of eye-opening accounts of sexual misconduct made by our fellow students on our campus, with many of these stories originating from a select few Greek Life organizations.

This week, my extra free time, or rather, time that would have been better spent concentrating on class, led me to go down some old and new musical roads. Some of these songs were high school staples, others are  reminiscent of my working days. Nonetheless, all of these songs are perfect for doing a v...

What a time to be alive. Judging by all the craziness going on around the world, Mercury was clearly in retrograde in March. However, in an attempt to keep some type of normality in my life, I have continued to listen to music to keep me motivated throughout my days in quarantine.  Here’s my pl...

I haven’t been listening to many newly discovered songs recently, but rather going through the archives of my past. This playlist certainly encompasses what will likely be my most broad playlist, so if you were looking for variety, you’ve come to the right place. “Firth of Fifth” — Genesis A piano ...

In honor of couples walking even slower down the middle of the sidewalk, I made this playlist specifically for people celebrating Valentine’s Day. If you wanted more vulgar and graphic love songs, I apologize, but this is a wholesome, family-friendly holiday, and kids might be reading this. “Yo...

Spotify has been giving me some truly awful suggested playlists, lately. The Daily Mixes either have songs from artists I haven’t listened to in years or overly produced noise, instead of music. Normally, I use the skip function with impunity, but today, I decided to stop skipping and review what S...

“Follow You Follow Me”-Genesis I did not intentionally listen to “Follow You Follow Me” this week. When the chorus randomly popped into my head over the weekend, I figured that it was from this early 80s hit, and I’ve been listening to the first American pop hit by Genesis on an endless lo...
