Brooklyn based, 80’s promoters, Secret Weapons have just shared self-titled their EP. But to top that off, they have also put together a playlist of epic proportions for our lovely readers.
Pasion Pit – Take a Walk
Sonically passion pit stood out from the rest. Buzz saw synths and joyful chord progressions with contradictory lyrics.
Jack Ü – To Ü (feat. Aluna George)
This track ushered in an era of production and a million imitates.
Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
This song is simply thrilling to us. A slow burn filled with so much dramatic tension. It does so much with so little, and builds to final climax like a masterpiece.
Tom Tom Club – Genius of Love
This song redefined corky to us. It’s got such a killer groove and the most playful melodies.
Talking Heads – Once In A Lifetime
Pure emotion. Soul and personality spew from every singe vocal line and instrument.
Joe Cocker – With A Little Help From My Friends
An incredible reimagination of this song. you could bring it around a million times and it keeps feeling better and better. the choir harmonies and live energy give us chills.
Selena Gomez – Hands To Myself
Simple pop bliss, haunting guitars.
The Killers – I Can’t Stay
A simple sentiment goes such a long way on this one. Also part of a larger album that we admire greatly.
Shamir – On The Regular
The dopest beat and the dopest visuals. You can’t imagine any other music video for this song.
Coldplay – Lovers In Japan
A beautiful love story, and some of the most heart-racing melodic beauty you can achieve.
The Strokes – You Only Live Once
The crunch of these guitars has influences us heavily. a solid strokes classic from a classic strokes album.
Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg – still d.r.e
Hip hop classic, pure and simple.
Cheryl Lynn – Got To Be Real
All around an incredible song.
Fifth Harmony – Sledgehammer
Every girl in the group is showcased beautifully here. The perfect girl group.
Queen – Another One Bites The Dust
Pure classic. We admire queen greatly for stepping into so many different genres. it’s hard to pick a favorite Queen song, but my god this is certainly Danny’s. This is also Danny’s favorite song of all time.
