Despite your stance on how early holiday music should be played in public (read various pieces about that here and here), you can’t deny that less than 1 week out, it’s now time. We’ve pulled together a not-so-obvious holiday playlist for your enjoyment. It includes some classics, some rare tracks, and healthy dose of Canadian musicians and some songs that you just gotta love despite the cheesiness. We’ll be playing this all day long on the fourth floor.
And for an added bonus: one of the best collaborations ever.
Working in an office of all girls has many perks – there’s always mascara to borrow, boy advice to be given and no one cringes when you talk about your time of the month. One slow-moving afternoon, when we all needed a little motivation, we spontaneously created what we believe is the greatest playlist of all time. The theme? Divas.
Now, what makes a diva you ask? There’s a few criteria that come into play. You should be recognizable by your first name (i.e. Whitney, Celine, Beyonce, Aretha, etc). A set of pipes that can hit the highest of high octaves is helpful. Being notorious for insane demands basically guarantees you a spot (see: Mariah being carried everywhere, Madonna making TIFF volunteers face the wall). Finally, even if your vocals are sub-par, getting Ben Affleck to rub your booty in a music video means you’ve earned the diva title.
Take a listen to the playlist (below) and let us know if you think we’re missing anyone. Tweet @rockitpromo if you have some diva-licious suggestions.
This long weekend, there’s only one question everyone’s been asking: are you going to Osheaga or not? A lucky few ladies on the fourth floor are heading to Montreal for the annual music fest, but the majority of us are not and are experiencing major FOMO.
Because we’re gluttons for punishment, we compiled some of the acts we’re especially bummed to miss out on. Whether you’re trekking to la belle province, heading up to a cottage or hanging around the city, we hope this playlist gets your long weekend started off on the right foot. Enjoy.
Psst: because we think long weekends are nothing without music, we’ve created another playlist for Monday. Make sure to come back here and check it out!
