Friday Playlist: Hanging Out With Tracy Flick

She won’t be defeated!

That peppy overachiever Tracy Flick is running for student body president—big surprise. Although she might seem perfect, Election’s frontrunner has a ruthless dark streak that she keeps coiled up inside (along with quite a few dirty secrets). Remember that even the smallest failure can set her off and if that happens, just DON’T mess with her.

So put on a “Pick Flick!” pin, tape up some posters, and share some barely suppressed rage with Tracy Flick to these 10 songs!

Hanging Out With Tracy Flick from RookieMag on 8tracks.

    When I read the first article today, and I saw the picture of Tracy on the home page, I think I actually gasped. Out loud. Tracy is the best. She is my spirit animal.

    God that movie was so funny. I love the part when there’s like this song(?) that progressively gets higher pitched like this:
    aaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaa aaaaa
    aaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaa
    it gets played when she’s angry or something like that. ooh loves it i’m watching it againn

    How have I not seen this movie yet?

    • Tavi February 19th, 2012 3:23 PM

      i watched it for the first time today. it depressed me!

  • Pashupati February 19th, 2012 2:43 PM

    It’s awesome.
    For the story I felt like I was about to have a panic attack, so I eat (long story, but maybe my brain didn’t have enough carbs or whatever) which made me feel better for a moment, but it came back and I tried to think about something else and turned on my desktop computer to watch feel-good movies relating to why I stressed at the moment (Legally Blonde is one of those :))
    But I thought I should check out Rookie’s last articles or reread others, and then I listened to that and it clearly cleared out the things that turned in my head. Thanks.
    I used to have an obsession with seeing every movie starring Reese Witherspoon, too.
