Today, I graduated from college. I am operating on an hour of sleep, several slices of ice cream cake, and little else. I am physically exhausted and emotionally drained, but I wanted to do this anyway.
These aren’t all ‘current’ songs. These are the songs that have colored my final week in college, as well as the late nights spent pondering the future.
I love you all.
MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of May 23, 2010
5. Alicia Keys – If I Ain’t Got You
A final sing-along night before graduation. Hitting those notes never felt so right (while still sounding so wrong).
4. Ester Dean – Drop It Low
Thursday night at Estate. Flashing lights, JuJubee and Jessica Wild, and the beginning of an incredible senior week.
3. Kylie Minogue – All The Lovers
On repeat again and again and again. Lush, soothing electronica to put me at ease in the late evening hours.
2. LMFAO – Shots
Hands down the theme song of my week. Boat cruise around Boston Harbor. Lucky Strike. Partying with the roomies. Make of it what you will, but I just can’t do anything without singing/fist-pumping the chorus out loud to myself anymore. ERRYBODY! So offensive. So mindless. So good.
1. Kelis – Brave
The song of the moment. It’s the most immense song on Flesh Tone (in my opinion), and my own personal mantra for moving forward in the world. Now I’m super strong!
