I got a couple text messages today from my sister reminding me that I better not forget to post a Friday at Five today! They came in the form of eccentric emoticons. The first one I interpreted as a high five. She sent another that had headphones, a clock pointing to 5, and a red exclamation mark. I didn’t really know this was all possible on the iPhone, but hey…there’s an app for that. No surprise, I guess. So here you go, Em…here’s your Friday at Five!
1. “Up All Night” – Blink-182
Guys. Blink-182 took an 8 year hiatus, but they’re BACK. This was my childhood right here. My god I loved these guys.
2. “Sorry 4 the Wait” – Lil Wayne
I tell yall, I was sick as hell of Adele samples until this track came along. But hey, it’s Weezy. He can do just about anything and kill it.
3. “Party with Q-Tip” (Jonathan Boulet vs Q-Tip) – Beat Mass
Seems I’m throwing another mashup at yall on a Friday at Five. Apologies for not saving it for Mashup Monday, but I think this will be epic for a weekend throw down.
4. “Moonlight Sonata” (Sound Remedy Remix) – Beethoven
Wow. I was informed about this one in the ChatBox from Patrick, and I’m blown away. I mean, this is a song I was playing on the piano as a child, and now it’s got some heavy bass and some wobbles over it, and I’m…well…wow, I feel sort of like I’m on drugs. Was that a dog bark right there? Or a scratch? Losing my mind over this one. (via TMN)
5.” Raise Your Weapon” (Madeon Remix) – DeadMau5
Madeon is one of those names that you need to know if you’re up on your music game. He is absolutely absurd. And guess how old he is? 16. Yep. Truth. He makes absolutely incredible remixes. Can’t wait until he starts making more of his own music. (Sorry for the radio rip on this one.)
