Well, here we go with this week’s edition of Lazy Friday Playlist. And I’m really hoping this will be a lazy Friday because I have been working 16 hour-plus days and need to slow down. The fruits of my labor may not be entirely apparent, but they will be soon (in the pages of Washington Babylon and elsewhere.)
We may have another item or two later today and we may not. But we’ll most very definitely be back next week with more of Hack List 2017 — click here for the last installment — as well as fresh stories and updates on scandals we recently unearthed.
Anyway, for now here’s our new Playlist. (Not impossible I’ve included some of these songs on prior Playlists, hard to keep track.) Share, mock, critique, whatever. And by all means have a good weekend.
Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne/No Frauds (I think I have mentioned this before but my daughter wrote a critique of Nicki from a Feminist/Marxist perspective and it was seriously brilliant.)
Manu Chao/¿Que hora son mi corazón?
Esto Es Ska II/Desorden Publico
Si Estuvieras Aquí (Versión Acústica)/Los Amigos Invisibles
J Balvin and Willy William,featuring Beyoncé/Mi Gente
Jackson 5/I Want You Back
Gimme Shelter/Rolling Stones
Dead Flowers/Rolling Stones (and multiple other great versions)
Crawling to the U.S.A./Elvis Costello & The Attractions
Sweet Home Alabama/Lynyrd Skynyrd
