Life as a Playlist


Sometimes I wish life had it’s own soundtrack — dramatic music would play as you rush to meet a deadline, or organ music would play everytime you go into a creepy attic, or the Seinfeld theme would play whenever you’re wasting time, or at these moments…



Looking at your phone after you send a drunk text:
“Back in Time” Pitbull


Climbing a flight of stairs:
“Started from the Bottom” Drake


Working on a Friday afternoon:
“Countdown” Beyonce


Walking into a really expensive store:
“Beautiful People” Chris Brown


Feeling hungover:
“Antidote” Swedish House Mafia


Getting ready for work on a Sunday night:
“Cry” Bingo Players


Silencing your alarm on a Monday morning:
“Don’t Wake Me Up” Chris Brown


Stepping on to a rush hour train:
“Feel So Close” Calvin Harris


Realizing your phone is dying:
“That Power” ft, Justin Bieber


Making out with someone who speaks another language:
“International Love” Pitbull ft. Chris Brown


Organizing people to go to the bar:
“Slight Work” Wale


Hearing your friend finally come home from the bar, 12 hours later:
“Where Have You Been?” Rihanna


Seeing really good Happy Hour Specials:
“Yeah 3x” Chris Brown


Telling the bartender what you want:
“More” Usher


Hearing this song anywhere:
“I Love It” Icona Pop


Running into someone from high school:
“Somebody That I Used to Know” Gotye (Tiesto Remix)


Walking into a Home Depot:
“Only Girl (In the World)” Rihanna


Finding that there’s only unattractive people at the bar:
“I Wanna Go” Britney Spears


Winning one round of flip cup:
“Champion” Kanye West
