Baa Mix 86: Winter/Spring 2016

I was in the writing cave for the past 8 months or so, so while I was listening to music, I never had the time to put it all in one post. So this is a weird hybrid mix of stuff I’ve listened to during that time, divided into Winter and Spring.

If you’re going to listen to one song—Water by Ra Ra Riot. Wait, also the Smells Like Teen Spirit cover from Freedom Fry because holy $h!t. Favorite line is from “Shovels & Dirt” by the Strumbellas: “I gotta a head full of darkness and darkness is good.”


Winter 2015

  1. Ra Ra Riot: Water (This was my theme song all the way through the end of writing TORCH)
  2. Bob Moses: Tearing Me Up (Another TORCH theme song!)
  4. Farro: On a Wire
  5. Grimes: Venus Fly (feat. Janelle Monae)
  6. Grimes: Kill V. Maim (This. Song. Is. Life. Also my 6yo is weirdly in love with it.)
  7. Beach Slang: Bad Art and Weirdo Ideas
  8. Julien Baker: Something (sobs)
  9. A$AP Rocky: Everyday (Just ignore the fact that Rod Stewart is in this song and it’s so great)
  10. Vance Joy: Mess is Mine
  11. The Lumineers: Ophelia (very sing-able, so warning, if you have children they will start driving you crazy with the chorus.)

Spring 2016

  1. Freedom Fry: Smells Like Teen Spirit (Thank you KCRW).
  2. Marvin Gaye: Sexual Healing (Kygo Remix)   (I don’t know why I love this song, but I absolutely blame April Tucholke and Maggie Thrash.)
  3. Bon Jovi: Living on a Prayer (Teaching the kids to air guitar and this seemed fitting for instruction, and then I remembered how great it was so here it is)
  4. Rae Sremmurd: Look Alive
  5. The Strumbellas: Shovel & Dirt
  6. The Strumbellas: Spirits (I GOT GUNS IN MY HEAD AND THEY WON’T GO)
  7. The Brinks: Temporary Love
  8. Boosie Badazz & C-Murder: God, I’m Sorry (A man’s convo with God.)
  9. Lewis Del Mar: Malt Liquor (So obsessed with this song)
  10. School of Seven Bells: Open Your Eyes (The back story to this whole album is so damn sad.
  11. Basia Bulat: La La Lie
  12. The Young Wild: Not a One
  13. Fitz & the Tantrums: Handclap (YASS FITZ)
  14. Miike Snow: Ghengis Khan (Obviously)
  15. Beyonce: Formation
  16. Oasis: Champagne Supernova (Idk, I just remembered it and then started listening to it obsessively exactly like in 9th grade. Weird time warp. Also, this video is so horribly 90s OMG. )
