Bad news, it’s hardly 10am. Good news, it’s Friday! Only 7 more hours until you can celebrate your short lived freedom. Whether you were crunching numbers or digging ditches, celebrate the fact that you made it through another grueling work week. At the end of the day, we’re all just doing one thing anyway…
Here we are folks. Back at it again in the Friday Pick-me-up. With so much change in life, it’s great that we at least have this one constant keeping us grounded, reminding us what’s really important in life, tunes that slap and good times.
In all seriousness, today marks a great time of the year…the unofficial start of summer. It’s supposed to be absolutely beautiful in the 989 this weekend, and that’s where I’ll be. If I’m lucky, I’ll spend a hilarious amount of time on the water and then stumble to the Office every night and dance to some outdated music with a mortician in my hand. Actually, I’m positive those things will happen.
Quick shout out to Jacoby Schellsbury and everyone going to his bachelor party this weekend in Chicago. Really bummed I won’t be there, but I’ll have a few drinks for all of you ass hats.
So please be safe this weekend. Don’t drink and drive. That’s so stupid. It’ll be nice, so you can walk if you have to….with that, we’re on to the music.
First up is an absolute fire jam to start the summer. Literally the only song I ever sing at karaoke. There’s never been a more appropriate time to listen to this. I hear the first line and get absolutely pumped for natty lights, tank tops, and swim trunks. If you say you don’t like this song, I’m going to call you a liar. It’s literally impossible to hate. Such a great tune for kicking back and slamming some sodas.
Second song gets us ready to tear the roof off the office. Absolute shame that the real version isn’t available on Youtube. The SNL version will have to do. I wish Views was great from the first track to the last, but it’s not. Thankfully, Drake dropped this gem on our faces. Really gets me going every time I hear it.
PS – The LFO jam reminded me of all the similar songs that will absolutely fill this bad boy for the entire summer and then some.
PPS – If you’re not grilling this weekend, are you even living? Just a thought.
