Friday Playlist: Looking Good, Feeling Gorgeous

A soundtrack for spinning around in the spotlight.

Sometimes you’re on top of the world, on fire, a walking, dancing disco light. Sometimes you don’t feel that way—but you wanna. This is a playlist for both of those times.

      Same! I still remember that music video where wearing the lip gloss makes everything turn purple/pink and sparkly :)

    So many hearts to this playlist!
    Although my favorite “attention” anthem is forever “I Don’t Care” by Fall Out Boy. I *get* that the band intended it as sort of a warning to being ideologically shallow etc. etc., but I mindswap it as a way to be gloriously vain. So yeah.

      I agree, that song never fails to put me in a awesome mood.

  • Viaperson May 4th, 2013 12:30 AM

    p.s. primadonna by the inimitable marina would fit this list (and the attention theme in general!) nicely — despite its dark undertones i like to listen to it and pretend i’m a queen

    • Luce May 4th, 2013 8:11 AM

      Agreed, Electra Heart is pretty much the soundtrack for this month.

      • Viaperson May 4th, 2013 10:49 AM

        ah yes yes yes!!! she is totally my attention-seeking spirit animal.

    • Resh May 5th, 2013 8:11 PM

      Or also Bubblegum B**ch could have gone pretty well I think, at least it gets me to stand up and start dancing every single time

  • Viaperson May 4th, 2013 12:32 AM

    THANK YOU FOR THIS LIST I AM SO HAPPY. my last final is tomorrow (!!!!!!!) and i can’t wait to listen to this and dance and run across campus and scream and feel fabulous/good/gorgeous.

    also: little mix are ACTUALLY queens. wish they’d existed when i was growing up but let’s be real, girl power anthems are always inspiring!!!

  • rhymeswithorange May 4th, 2013 4:26 PM

    Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen is the best attention song to sing and dance to

  • warpaintfiend May 6th, 2013 3:58 PM

    Yassssss! And lame but “pretty girl rock” by keri hilson is always a good jam to listen to when you just feel fierce as hell!
