Case of the Mondays Playlist – 8.5.13 – Songs of Summer 2013

I was watching Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and the question that came up was what was the song of the summer. So I’ve decided to format my own Summer of 2013 Playlist. Some of these may have been on a recent playlist but I’m trying to keep most of these fresh. These are songs […]

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 […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 6.17.13

This week’s theme for music is all around mah love for Pharrell Williams. If there was an for music, I feel like Pharrell would be the George Clooney of it. This guy is attached to so many hits. The last month, both Robin Thicke and Daft Punk have released new albums, and guess who […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 6.10.13

As we gear up for Father’s Day next weekend, a great way to do an inexpensive gift with love it to create a CD mix (or back in my old school days it’s what we called a “mix tape”). When PD2 and I were dating we used to make each other mixes all the time […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 6.3.13

It’s finally starting to be like Spring / Summer. This weekend we were working on the lawn and trying to make an attempt at landscaping that wouldn’t bring the side-eyes from our neighbors. Sometimes nothing puts me in a better mood than songs that are common to listen to when the sun and good weather […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 5.6.13

This week’s playlist is a bit late, but I’m scatter brained and all over the place. So don’t be surprised as this playlist is a little eclectic and goes in a variety of genres.  Some of these songs I’ve grown to love despite initial hate – I’m side eyeing you, Alabama Shakes – and others are gems […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 4.29.13

This week I’m kicking it off with songs that have caught my attention recently. Some are brand new artists in my catalog (Santigold, huzzzzzah!) and others are blasts from the recent past (Filter – is is 1999???? Why yes it is, SoNnNnNnNnN!) Either way, this playlist is in dire need this week as I expect […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 4.22.13

Since today is Earth Day (Happy Earffffffffffffffff Day, ya’ll!), I thought the following tracks help bring in the sunshine (especially here in Chicago!) throughout this next week as you celebrate Mother Nature and her good side…. Grab some patchouli, your trendy “recyclable” sack and get ready to get yo’ noodle dance on! Big Yellow Taxi […]

Case of the Mondays Playlist – 4.1.13

Since today is April Fool’s Day, I thought the following tracks would help brighten up anyone’s day that’s has been made the fool of – in work, relationships, etc. Hopefully these 5 songs will get you though the hectic jokefest today or the work week… April Fools – Rufus Wainwright Fools Rush In – Elvis […]
