WO: Weekly Obsessions

George Zimmerman has a girlfriend and Adam Levine is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive? My friend Kaley said it best — the world is going insane. What’s a girl to do when everyone else seems to be losing their mind? Earbuds in, music on, disappear from society. Here we go:

  1. SNL – “Worst Cover Songs of All Time”: This season had its hits and misses, but I cannot stop watching this hilarious infomercial for awesomely bad cover songs. Nathan Lane takes the cake by far!
  2. AcaBelles – “Royals”: I still haven’t seen “Pitch Perfect” (the horror!) but these ladies from FSU straight up kill Lorde’s song. Now, how do I do that mouth-drum thing?
  3. Phillip Phillips – “Gone, Gone, Gone”: I didn’t think this horribly named young man could do any better than last year’s smash single, “Home.” Boy, is my face red. Let’s just say obsession is putting it mildly here.
  4. Avicii – “Wake Me Up”: Full disclosure: I confuse this song with ol’ Phillip squared on a regular basis. The key difference? This one gets me pumped like none other.

Get Ready for This Year’s Best Soundtrack

Yeah, I said it. A friend shared this playlist with me last week, and I’ve had it on repeat ever since.

It starts with JAY-FREAKING-Z.

There’s a glowing hit from stellar bands like Florence + The Machine and The xx.

And covers of “Back to Black” and “Crazy in Love” (Hint: Only one features Beyoncé … choose wisely).

Put it on, and just try and tell me you don’t love it.
