Road Trip: You Help Pick the Playlist! August 24, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — sultryminxzoe @ 3:50 am

If you follow me on Twitter (@sultryminxzoe), you know I will be making my annual pilgrimage to the geek mecca that is Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia. On Tuesday, August 31st, I will finish my shift at the day job, hop in my car and make the arduous journey from Massachusetts to Georgia. My only companion, Gerry, my Aussie lover (a gal can dream), who resides in my GPS. However, a gal cannot retain her sanity (if there is any left) with Aussie accent alone.

Here is where you come in. Over the last week, I invited you to submit playlist recommedations – upbeat songs that will keep me singing and dancing in my driver’s seat. I’ve posted below most of the songs that make up the final playlist, in no particular order. There is some new music represented; however, the majority of the song selections include a healthy dose of nostalgia. I’m pretty sure there are some selections I should be embarrassed by. Nonetheless, I stand by my playlist. Love it or hate it, I hope you find at least one song to make you dance.

Big hugs to @dawnsister, @aboynamedart & @kelleyclark for contributing to the playlist! I received some excellent suggestions and was very excited to fall in love with some new bands/artists!

  2. Kelley Says:

    Um, you totally need the Firefly theme song! Also check:
    JoCo Looks Back by Jonathan Coulton (especially IKEA, I Feel Fantastic, Mandelbrot Set, Shop Vac, Chiron Beta Prime, Skullcrusher Mountain… Okay. The whole thing.)
    Ready For This? by Tim Minchin (esp If I Didn’t Have You and Confessions)
    Here Comes Science by They Might Be Giants

  3. Edward Woodward Says:

    Sounds awesome! I second the Firefly theme but then I would mix in some big scores, Star Wars, Last Starfighter, Galaxy Quest etc! Have a great time for me! And take TONS of pictures so I can live vicariously!

  4. Edward Woodward Says:

    OOPS! I see you already have it in there! Well done!
