Friday Playlist: Hanging Out With Lucy Wagner

A mixtape for Britney in Crossroads.

Straight out of high school with barely any money in your pocket and a head full of dreams, you go on road trip to Los Angeles with Lucy Wagner. You’re not totally sure if you’re a girl OR a woman, but you’ll have a lot of time to think about that in the future. You could possibly be a dog, so don’t rule out that possibility. Just saying! So hop into your beat-up Buick Skylark, pick up a few hitchhikers (who may or may not have been in jail before), and sing along to these songs to wow the crowd at the karaoke bar.

    I’m not even old enough to drive yet, but this playlist makes me want to jump in a car with my best friend and drive across America.

    ….I’m not even American.

    OMG CROSSROADS BRITNEY JEAN SPEARS

    So many memories flooding back. Free sneak peak screening, using all all my Britney knowledge to win a Crossroads movie poster, sneaking back into the theatre to see it again the next day. Now I know for sure how I am spending my Saturday night. God love her.

    Oh my gosh, that playlist is perfect for the 10-year-old me! I loved Sheryl Crow and Britney Spears so much back then!
