tgif: the playlist vol. 1

Anyone who knows anything about painting the town red on the weekends knows that the key to a great night out - is a great pre-party. It sets the tone, rallies the troops, and begins the delightful journey from sober-yet-optimistic to inebriated-and-wildly-enthusiastic.

So continuing on this topic of "keys to things," the key to a good pre-func is a great playlist. If you're really dedicated, the playlist should reflect both your guest list and the projected destination for the night. Too lazy for that? Well lucky for you, I'm not.

Tonight looks like we'll be gathering up the girls to drink/gossip/get ready/drink on Capitol Hill then head out to Belltown. Judge all you want hipsters & ballard-devotees, but Kells, the Frontier Room and - well - maybe just those two bars... are perfect for an aggressive night of dancing, party ponies, getting jostled through the crowd and using your plastic bottle of Coors Light as a friend-finding beacon. (aka they're not too "Belltown-y")

So anyway, here's my "Lets-get-pumped-up-and-ready-to-dance-slash-socialize" playlist for a bunch of saucy single girls just lookin' for a good time...

Ke$ha - "Take It Off"
Cobra Starship - "Hot Mess" [stumbling but yeah you're still looking hella fine...]
Passin Pit - "Little Secrets"
Nadia Oh - "Got Your Number" [From the Gossip Girl soundtrack, amazing.]
Nelly Furtado - "Maneater"
Timbaland ft. Justin Timberlake - "Carry Out"
Snoop Dogg - "Sensual Seduction" [I still really enjoy this song. Sue me.]
Justice - "D.A.N.C.E."
Jaiko - "Oh Yeah"
Micheal Jackson - "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" [MJ obvi always makes me wanna boogie.]
Mickey Avalon - "So Rich, So Pretty"
R. Kelly - "I'm A Flirt [remix]"
Phoenix - "If I Ever Feel Better" [Older Phoenix, such a gem]
The Virgins - "Rich Girls"
N.E.R.D. - "LapDance"
Miami Horror - "Make You Mine"
Robin Thicke - "When I Get You Alone"
Kylie Minogue - "Speakerphone"
Cam'ron - "Hey Ma" [I kareoked this song on my 22nd birthday. Loves it.

Daft Punk - "One More Time"
The Dream - "Fast Car"
Mickey Avalon - "Jane Fonda"
Black Eyed Peas - "Imma Be"
R. Kelly - "Ignition [remix]" [As far as I'm concerned, this song is never not the right choice]
Major Laser ft. Ricky Blaze & Nina Sky - "Keep It Going Louder"
Gucci Mane - "Lemonade" [Sometimes I have to tap into my inner bling rapper]
Destiny's Child - "Say My Name"
Birdman - "Written On Her"
Timbaland - "The Way I Are" [Yes, I still want to party every time i hear this song]
Ke$ha - "Tik Tok" [Guilty pleasure & total party-starter.] that last one, take a shot, then pile into a cab and get after it.

"When the dark of the night comes around, thats the time,
that the animal comes alive, looking for something wild..."
