I’m obsessed with Project Playlist. I’m there at least ten times a day, adding a new song to one of my increasingly random playlists every time an old song pops into my head. Out of boredom yesterday, I started to browse through some of the other playlists that various other
junkies Project Playlist users had created.
On the whole, I was heartily disappointed. Every single playlist seemed to contain a vile, pedestrian concoction of Nickelback, Staind and Linkin Park, or else was a tribute list devoted entirely to rap artists like Chingy and 50 Cent. Good God, it was terrifying. And then I came across MAMA’S THROWBACK JAMZ.
I dont’ know MAMA. I’m kind of frightened by the fact that she capitalizes her name like that, since it leads me to think that in real life she’d probably do a lot of in-your-face yelling and finger-waving. And I’m not sure about that scarf-thing she’s wearing around her neck. But on the other hand, she looks kind of like my friend Phyllis, who’s a total bad-ass. And MAMA does have some bad-ass taste in music.
I quickly bookmarked MAMA’s playlist and have been playing the everloving shit out of it since yesterday afternoon. I like to think it’s the reason that the temp didn’t come in today, as my Earth, Wind and Fire was totally dominating his Metallica yesterday during our daily Battle of the Computer Speakers. So, thanks, MAMA — whoever you are — for creating a truly awesome throwback jamz mix. You rock.
