On any given day, the tribe is jamming Beyoncé, Johnny Cash, Pearl Jam or top tunes from classic Disney films. Eclectic doesn’t even begin to describe it, I know. Music is one way we have learned to cure our workday woes and keep us in grind mode. Plus, inspiration is hiding in the most unlikely places, including our Drake “best of lyrics” wall.With the concept ‘creativity encourages creativity’ in mind, the tribe has compiled some notable musical favorites to share and hopefully get your imaginative gears turning.Given no instruction aside from “List two of your favorite songs right now and reasons why they were selected,” here are a bunch of songs broken down by tribe member accompanied by their slightly filtered thoughts.
This isn’t even my favorite song from this enigmatic band, but the bass line is incredibly smooth, and some of the patterns on the drums make me happy in the pants. They're a band's band, and this tune is laced with reasons why.
Another song from an artist that isn't necessarily my favorite, but I love. This piece is a beautiful ode to his cat, Tron. If I could cry and my tears could smile, this song would cause that heartfelt moment as I lay bare skin with jersey-material knickers watching Captain Planet on a Tuesday night.
Growing up, some girls call Beyoncé their queen. For me, BoA has always been my Beyoncé.
When that Korean boy band you've been getting into releases a new jam for the ages and then your favorite members leave… but at least I still have a new jam for the ages.
<3 this song! His voice is amazing!
This is an awesome hype throwback.
If I were the main character of a romantic comedy, this would be my entrance song. It’s also my boyfriend and I’s favorite band and we love this song.
I was given a CD with this song on it about 10 years ago. For me this song holds deep sentimental meaning. I have a lot of emotion and feeling tied to it, and I feel like in some way it helped me through the most difficult time of my life. Love, love, this song and I love the person who introduced it to me even more (my boyfriend, Israel).
Guilty pleasure? Not sure. I like it. Also love this version of it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe1kqSL8754
Total a guilty pleasure and an awesome "pick me up" after a tough day.
Gotta rep my Aggie roots. Brings tears to my eyes every time... enough tears to full up a ring dunk pitcher. Gig 'em!
Whether it's getting back on track, getting hyped at the beginning of a workday or getting ready for my next set at the gym, this one's a go-to to get me moving.
Love Texas country and this song gets a lot of play in my vehicle, especially since Sara really likes it as well. It pretty much falls right in that little overlapping sweet spot in the S&J Venn diagram.
LCD is my favorite band and I love this song. Also, the first show Sara and I went to together was LCD Soundsystem at Stubbs in Austin, so there's some added significance.
Lauryn Hill is by far my favorite female rapper. I can always count on grooving to this song no matter where I am.
I knew I had to give a shout out to the Queen Bee for this blog. Although I love all Beyoncé songs, this one especially makes me smile and dance even if I am doing something I hate (like folding clothes).
I’m a writer (it’s even tattooed on my wrist), so naturally I’m a sucker for lyrics. They are one of the most significant elements to a song, which is why “Easy” is so memorable for me. Its repetitive lyrics and melodic structure are seemingly simple in a hypnotic kind of way, but the executive is far from being easy like Sunday morning. Son Lux features a crazy interesting front man, but my favorite person to watch is the drummer. He has beats that a rhythmically challenged individual like myself would consider “sick.”
“You see the devil don’t mean to be evil, he just regrettably forgets to exceed expectation.” Same.Speaking of lyrics, this song has been haunting me for the past few weeks. Far from being the best band or the best song composition, there is still something that hits real close to home on this one. It’s a mumbly libretto, but I love it.In addition to being talented Spotify DJs, the Tribu team is composed of some of the best digital marketers this world has ever seen.
