Two years ago I lost my very best friend. I miss her constantly, but more than anything I just wish I could hangout with her again. Specifically, in my Tahoe driving around Atlanta. The Christmas I got my car was right when Outkast’s “Speakerbox/Love Below” album was released. We knew every word and blasted it all around Buckhead. We listened and danced to everything, Perpetual Groove, Guster, Rufus Wainwright, MOE. and even some Christian Rock albums… Most of my memories of Em involve dancing – PDC’s and Deb Balls, dancing with my parents at the lake, watching her dance with her mom to “Brick House”, house parties (where it wasn’t unheard of for Emily to split her pants on the dance floor) and of course dancing in my car. So in her memory and love for music I decided to make a collaborative playlist, “Songs for Emily”. This isn’t a playlist of sad songs, but of ones released after her passing that I know she would love to boogie too. I hope there is music in heaven cause I plan on dancing with her someday.
Feel Free to add your own tracks – this playlist ended up being basically a dance party so tune in, turn it up and dance.
