Your Election Night Dance Party Playlist, Courtesy of DJ Freak Illness
If you're anything like me, you not only obsessively soundtrack nearly every moment of your life, but also feel relentlessly compelled to draw deep meaning out of all those moments soundtracked by others (e.g., radio DJs, bar DJs, the dude in charge of the iPod at your local coffee shop, etc.). Like, last night I was driving back from the Little Tokyo library and heard "L.E.S. Artistes" by Santogold and "Hate to Say I Told You So" by The Hives back-to-back on Indie 103.1, which I knew had to be some kind of secret Election Eve code. ("L.E.S. Artistes" is all desperate and anthemic, and I'm sure Barack Obama sang the whole song to himself in the mirror before he went to bed last night, while "Hate to Say I Told You So" would make the best victory song with which to taunt your one or two Facebook friends who've got "Blahblahblah is the blahblahblahth person to donate their status to get out the vote for John McCain" as their current status update.)
Anyway, my new deal is trying to obsessively soundtrack your life, which is why I've called upon my pal DJ Freak Illness to put together an Election Night playlist. Fire it up whenever you're in need of a 3-minute dance party (Liz Lemon-stylez) at any point this evening. (On the other hand, if the anxiety gets to be too much and you start to wig the hell out, listen to John Coltrane's A Love Supreme in its entirety. I've already done so 3 times in the last 12 hours; it's total magic.) You'll notice that the closing track here is Ghost Town DJs' "My Boo," which we just featured in the Halloween edition of Heavy Rotation. DJ Freak Illness would like yall to know that this is the song she'd currently most like to dance with Barack Obama to, even though she doesn't really want to be his lady.
So, here's a screenshot of the first almost-half of the playlist. Get to it now before RIAA shuts down Favtape! Oh, and our one demand is that you must must must dance exactly like Barack Obama on Ellen all night long. No exceptions!!!
