What I’m Spinning: February-March

These are in no particular order and were not heavily (at all) screened for content. Listen at your own risk!

I love her song Pink Shoelaces. I then binge watched (listened to?) a bunch of her songs. This one has not left my head since. I also quite enjoyed this one.

I was singing this all of spring break. It’s very catchy. The music video made me laugh.

I fell down the solid gold oldies rabbit hole and found this gem.

Whilst falling, I also found this one.

One of my favorite documentaries of all time is ‘Twist’. It’s about dancing in the 50s and 60s. They interview Hank Ballard. All of his music is killer. A song that I hadn’t paid much attention to was Get It. Now its always stuck in my head.

Cree Summer is so cool.

Iko Iko (the Dixie Cups version, of course) is one of my favorite songs of all time. Sia’s cover on Jimmy Fallon was stellar. Questlove’s face makes it even better!

I think this is the best version of this song. She co-wrote it! Female soul singers of the 60s get nowhere near the recognition they deserve.

Acoustic and extended version are two of my favorite words to hear, especially when it comes to artists like Bob Marley.

I quite like the song New Love.

I’ve known this song for years, but my goodness I’ve been listening to it on repeat for weeks. And yes, it is Tia and Tamera.

D’angelo, y’all. All of his albums over and over again on repeat. Go buy them. They are necessary for life.
