It’s a glorious weekend, with plenty to do (including our own Cookies and Cream event Saturday), so here are the tunes you need to get pumped.

Svetlana Legetic

In preparation for eating my weight in carbs tomorrow, a few appropriate songs:

“Sugar On My Tounge” –  Talking Heads

Always a surprisingly effective slow-burner dance jam at parties, also not really about sugar but about drugs, and that’s fine.

“Bananas and Blow” – Ween

This songs starts with these lines, which are reason enough to listen to this song ALWAYS:

“Sancho brought a message from the fat man
Sorry boy, to leave you high and dry
But I went to see my mom in Ensenada
And I left a little something to help the time go by”

That “little something” are the two items in the title, which makes this song not JUST about sugar but also about drugs, and that’s fine too.

“Hunger” – Rhye

In my opinion, this song is so good, I almost cry every time I hear it. It has nothing to do with sugar, and maybe something to do with drugs, but it is perfect despite all that, and the title gives me an excuse to mention it.

“Blurred Lines” – Queens of the Stone Age

If you’re going to cover “Blurred Lines” you do not need to know the lyrics. If you’re going to cover “Blurred Lines” you should use bottles of pills as maracas.

Baby Rollerblade Beach Boys Interpretation

This classic jam takes The Beach Boys “I Get Around” and turns it into a much better song about babies rollerblading.

“Goodbye England’s Rose” – Elton John

I hope that when I pass away Elton John writes some new fucking music. Jesus Christ dude, she was your friend! You just changed a few lyrics! LAZY!

That dog misses the Princess.

“Popsicle” – The Talking Heads

In honor of our fabulous Cookies & Cream Party tomorrow I picked the closest song I could think of that involved sweet treats and that is The Talking Heads’ “Popsicle.” This song is also about summer which makes me sad because summer is almost over. I am not one of those fucking weirdos who loves fall and sweaters and leaves and cold. RIP Summer. You were the best.

Ice Cream Truck Jingle

Ice Cream Truck jingles because well… Cookies and Cream. So familiar. Bringing back pleasant childhood memories. No really, it is the most annoying song ever but Cookies and Cream!!!!!

“Chain Hang Low” – Jibbs

Gonna echo Dana here, because every time I hear an ice cream truck I think of the best rap song to ever sample an ice cream truck.

“Runaway (feat. Pusha T) – Kanye West

Baby North West’s lullaby.

“Smoke Again” – Chance the Rapper ft. Ab-Soul

This is probably the rudest rundown of the most effed up priorities ever. But, it makes me laug and the beat is smooth, and something about a guy with nose ring makes me forget my common sense so, yeah.

“Special Education” – Goodie Mob ft. Janelle Monae
Janelle Monae is perfect in everything she does and Goodie Mob is still the coolest thing ever.

“Lonely Boy” – The Black Keys
If you can’t have fun listening to this song and/or watching this video, I have nothing else for you.
