LPC's Weekly Playlist: LPC's 2019 tracks

Lil Lil Nas X

If you are familiar with me as a person on this planet in any way, you know I love this time of year.

Not because of Christmas, dummy. Because of best-of lists!!!!!!!

I love looking back every year on the songs and albums I loved most and I love seeing what my friends enjoyed just as much. It's also great to go through end-of-year lists because you're introduced to the songs and artists you missed out on. Honestly, end-of-year lists are one of the ways I discover new music. So, in a way... it is Christmas?

I find myself saying this every year, but this was a great year for music. However, 2019 seems different. To me, this was an inspiring year for music, especially seeing artists like Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X throw out pop music's rules and just do whatever the hell they want.

In honor of these artists, songs and albums getting me (and I can imagine others) through a spectacularly hot-mess year, I've doubled the playlist. MORE SONGS!! Which means, I'm not writing blurbs for every song. That's exhausting and I do this weekly playlist for free. So go through the list and see which songs were worth my comments.


Lizzo feat. Missy Elliott - Tempo

I always feel very awkward bopping to this song because I am a small human. So I just bop in private.

Sharon Van Etten - Comeback Kid

Just last week, LinkedIn suggested Sharon as a connection. *screeeeeeeeeeeeeammmmmmmmmmms*

Frank Ocean - In My Room

Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now

Lana Del Rey - Cinnamon Girl

King Princess - Tough On Myself

Although this song is about romance, it was really nice to listen to when I lost my job and needed a reminder to not be so tough on myself.

Megan Thee Stallion - Hood Rat Shit

I chose this particular song because it references this iconic child.

All of Us - Labrinth and Zendaya - All of Us

Charli XCX - 1999

I was supposed to see my Charli bb this fall, but I had a terrible migraine attack and missed it. I told you 2019 blows.

Missy Elliott - Throw It Back

Welcome back, Missy!

Billie Eilish - bury a friend

Chance the Rapper - Hot Shower

Ariana Grande - Fake Smile

Another track that resonated with me. I feel like I flashed a lot of fake smiles this year. (Starting to flash real smiles now!)

Danny Brown - Dirty Laundry

Grimes - We Appreciate Power

Still not forgiving her for Elon.

Beck - Saw Lightening

Beyonce - Get Me Bodied (Homecoming Live)

I am SO happy I get to add "Get Me Bodied" on an end-of list 13 years after its release. Personally, this is my favorite part of Homecoming just for Solange.

Mark Ronson feat. Lykke Li - Late Night Feelings

I lose my mind over any track with Lykke Li.

Sleater-Kinney - Can I Go On

Tove Lo - Are U gonna tell her?

Gucci Mane - Big Booty

Solange - Binz

Listen to "Binz" and then watch this performance.

Kim Petras - Turn Off the Light

Kim Petras' electro-goth, Halloween-themed TURN OFF THE LIGHT is one of my favorite albums of the year.

Normani - Motivation

Taylor Swift - The Man

TBH it took me a while to listen to Lover because I thought Reputation was a disappointing mess after the spectacular 1989. (Sorry, Swifties.) My bad! Lover is a great album and I particularly appreciate "The Man."

Iggy Pop - James Bond

FKA Twigs - home with you

This is a great example of the avant garde, creepy-ass songs I dig that not everyone is on board with. You may not be on board with "home with you," so I made it the last track and you can forget about it completely. I love the second track off of MAGDALENE because of its hard detour from FKA Twigs' breathy, soothing vocals and I always appreciate when artists try something new. I also love pop with industrial influences (i.e. David Bowie's "I'm Afraid of American's" and Lady Gaga's "Judas"), which FKA Twigs wove into MAGDALENE. So yes, I really enjoy this song.
