Case of the Mondays Playlist – 7.1.13 – Celebrating Pride!

Yesterday, TRitchie and I attended Chicago’s PrideFest Parade and while it was amazing, it was also a reminder that we are definitely in our mid-30s vs our mid-20s. We nearly got crushed and pummeled to the ground while trying to make our way through the crowd while someone was screaming “It’s all about love!” all the while I was screaming in my head “I am too old for this!” I now know what it feels like to be probably front row at a Justin Bieber concert.

This week’s playlist is a dedication to Pridefest and rocking your free spirit out!

Believe – Cher (like any music playlist of Pridefest could NOT have Cher on it – pahleaze!)

Same Love – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I’m Coming Out – Diana Ross

Let’s Have a Kiki – Scissor Sisters

Born This Way – Lady Gaga

okay, one more because I love this group so much –

Take Your Mama Out – Scissor Sisters (if you like Elton John at all, this song has a very similar sound)

Below are more pictures from our day at the Pridefest Parade. It’s all about love, y’all!
