Our buddy David over at BNQT.com sent this playlist to help prime the pump and get your Music on The Move creative juices flowing – check it out!
1. Nightwish – Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean
Nightwish is Finnish opera rock power metal with a chick lead singer. Obviously Devil and the deep dark Ocean is one of the songs that medieval knights of Europe listened to while riding into battle on horseback. As a capable knight of the here and now, I also choose Nightwish to get me psyched while commuting to battle, er, a day of work in my cubicle.
2. Boys Don’t Cry – The Cure
While stuck in traffic in the rain after being dumped by my latest girlfriend, I sometimes I need to remind myself that boys don’t cry. So I listen to this song and it puts me back on track.
3. Deadmau5 – Hi Friend! (feat. Mc Flipside)
Deadmau5 is so hot right now. He’s got something like 500 million followers on twitterbook. He’s on the verge of played out, but I don’t even care. Let those little dance club trolls convulse in slow motion to his dubstep tracks. I listen to Hi Friend! (which IS NOT a dubstep track) on the way to the airport before I get in my plane and fly upside down for an hour. Geez, I sound like a pompous schmuck, maybe that’s why my girlfriend dumped me.
4. Daft Punk – Alive
Okay so I’m cheating a little bit… this is an entire album. But, it was on infinite loop at max volume for about three months after I purchased my 335i and was drag racing myself from stoplight to stoplight on PCH.
5. Yanni – The Storm
Laugh all you want, this s**t is epic. Like me. The Storm is one movement from Vivaldi’s four seasons, techno-charged by Yanni, that dude with a mustache and a mullet, who probably hooks up with more chicks than anyone who visits this website. Inspirational to say the least.
