Songs 4 NYC

I’m headed to NYC in a week with three of my closest friends (and Emma’s sister – Hi, Aliza), and I think it’s about time to set the music expectations. Traveling with the WKNC Program Director, Underground MD, and two more heavy music listeners is exciting. The aux will hold a lot of power, perhaps more than the steering wheel, so I seriously doubt we’ll follow the “driver chooses the music” rule. Therefore, there’s a certain level of importance in curating a playlist prior to the drive up. Here’s what we’ve put together so far:

  • “Inner City Life – Radio Edit” by Goldie
  • “D>E>A>T>H>M>E>T>A>L” by Panchiko
  • “Live Without Out” by Todd Terry
  • “Tu Dégages” by Sexy Sushi
  • “Another Routine Day Breaks” by Brokeback
  • “#1 CRUSH – Re-mastered 07” by Garbage
  • “Alec Eiffel” by Pixies
  • “Sketch Artist” by Kim Gordon
