Happy President’s Day everybody! I myself will be enjoying a day off. Yet technology allows us to be here with you today even when we’re not in the office. If you are for some reason working on President’s Day…sorry. As a consolation prize, I’d like to offer you this playlist. Spoonful of sugar and whatnot.

It’s a mix of what’s going on this week. Some songs reference current events and holidays. Others are just things I’ve been listening to that I thought y’all might enjoy. Hope this will get you through your day a bit faster!

  • “Space Jam” – Quad City DJs: It’s the All Star game this weekend.
  • “Hey O” – RDGLDGRN: Can’t get enough of their new EP. Dave Grohl on drums, Pharrell produced.
  • “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” – Fall Out Boy: First track they’ve released in a few years and I was surprised to not hate it.
  • “Freedom at 21” – Jack White: He ripped this up at the Grammys, in what was my favorite performance of the night.
  • “Funky President (People It’s Bad) – James Brown: It’s Presdent’s Day. This was obvious.
  • “Runaway Baby” – Bruno Mars: He was another highlight from the Grammys.
  • “40’s Theme” – Umphrey’s McGee: A rockin’ tune about long weekend activities.
  • “Madness” – Muse: It just seemed like a good place to put a song like this.
  • “Anything Could Happen” – Ellie Goulding: They closed Glee with it this week. Just don’t ask how I know that…
  • “I Love It” – Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX: For when coffee just isn’t enough, there are songs like this.
