@Arellano1052 has wanted me to make this post, and I am a jerk who hasn't done it yet, so I've decided now that I've got some time to kill that IT IS TIME for this playlist challenge.
Fortunately, I love blasting music in my car. The only thing I cared about when picking out my first car in high school was whether or not it could play music. I spent a lot of my youngin years staying up late, driving around with my speakers set to max volume, traveling up and down the Pacific Coast Highway and taking in the view.
So here is my list. I'm sorry if it sucks.
Habibi Ya Nour El Ain
Every Middle Eastern kid knows this song. It's played at your family reunion. It's played at your cousin's birthday. It's played at the local ethnic market. It's played at the only authentic Lebanese restaurant in your town. It's like the Arabic equivalent of 90s Michael Jackson.
This is the first song I ever played in my high school car. Insert loud noises here.
Marina & The Diamonds
Marina Diamandis (aka Marina & The Diamonds) is basically my favorite female in music right now because she's everything I'd want to be if I were a pop singer. I love all of her albums, but her very first one, Family Jewels (the album this song is on), is the one that never leaves my car.
One Of A Kind
@InPlainSight has spent the past good month or two privately torn over whether or not to ask me who my bias is. The answer is G-Dragon, of course. If only because I love how weird and colorful his music videos are. His style always reminds me of Rufio from the movie Hook.
Mino & Zico
You guys, I hate myself for loving this song as much as I do, but I feel like I listen to it every single morning. It's from a popular Korean rap battle show called 'Show Me The Money', and I have it stuck in my head 99% of the time. IS THAT TRUUUUE? YES!! OKIE DOKEY-YO.
Kisum & Jooyoung
You & Me
Kisum is a South Korean female rapper that I'm currently obsessed with. Kind of like how Marina would be me if I were a famous pop star, I feel like Kisum is my Korean spirit animal. I love how she can balance cute and aggressive. Like me. (Say I'm cute or I'll hunt you down, okay?)
