best Finals Week playlist ever, or Pump Up the Jam!

Almost finished with last bout of Finals ever. Ever ever. I graduate in less than three days. Of course, I’m behind on work, exhausted, and stressed out. I need music to study, so I decide to pick something that I know will not only motivate me to finish, but will make me happy. Pandora turns on and boom-bam: Salt-N-Pepa station. I love Salt-N-Pepa, probably more than is healthy. I often crowbar “Push It” into conversations (including the dance). My favorite Salt-N-Pepa is without a doubt Spinderella. People don’t understand my weirdness, I’ve come to terms.

Anyways. Pandora made me the best mix ever.  Legitimately best ever. It’s full of good feelings and delightful memories from my childhood and dance-able tunes. I had a dance party in the library, others final-stduiers did not approve. But come on – Salt-N-Pepa? Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch? Biz Markie? It’s brilliant.

Be forewarned that the next party of mine you come to, it’s highly likely that these will be the only tunes I play.
