{ GUEST PLAYLIST } LEXI CROSS OF NEW YORK CALLED & SHOES OF NYC

I'm so excited to share that throughout the month of October I'll be sharing new weekly playlists from a few of my favorite people, who happen to share my love of music and the internet. Check back each Wednesday for some fresh tunes and a new interview.



TODAY'S PLAYLIST COMES FROM...

Lexi Cross, Founder of New York Called, Co-Founder of Shoes of NYC and Director of Marketing at Lulu Frost.

TELL ME ABOUT THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS PLAYLIST? 

I just turned 27 so I decided to put together a playlist of songs that bring back good memories from over the years. This summer I was on the train coming back from The Hamptons and overheard a guy that had some good advice. (It's easy to eavesdrop on the LIRR...) “For every major trip with friends or any events you think will be significant in your life - listen to one song over and over again and let that be your "theme" song. That way... whenever you hear it in the future, it will trigger meaningful events of the past.” I've been following his lead!
DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST CD OR CASSETTE YOU EVER OWNED?
The Men In Black soundtrack, Hanson, Britney Spears—all at once!

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SONG LYRIC OF ALL TIME?

Strangers waiting
Up and down the Boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlights, people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night  

HOW WOULD YOU CHARACTERIZE YOUR TASTE IN MUSIC? 

Sort of random! Huge fan of R&B, rap, hip-hop but also love a little country. When I'm getting ready to go out I'm listening to The Weekend or A$AP but for road trips or summer jams it's more like classic Rascal Flats or Keith Urban. To be honest, I'm not always on top of my music game. My friends usually have to keep me up to date! I've become a huge fan of SoundCloud/Spotify for that reason...

IF YOU COULD HAVE A CANDLELIT DINNER WITH ONE ARTIST, WHO WOULD IT BE?
Frank Ocean. He seems like a pretty soulful dude with a good perspective on life. I'd like to get his take.

IF YOU COULD TAKE ONE ARTIST OUT AND GET DRUNK WITH THEM, WHO WOULD IT BE, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHAT WOULD YOU DRINK?
Rihanna. I'd let her choose the bar because she knows what's up. We'd drink Jameson on the rocks and pour it up pour it up.

WHAT WOULD YOUR 'AT BAT' SONG BE THIS SEASON?

Jamie XX - I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)
TAYLOR SWIFT'S SQUAD: JOIN OR DESTROY?

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
