    TRACK 6: "Elevators" by Outkast

    TRACK 6: "Elevators" by Outkast

    Track six is when you give your favorites their flowers. If someone else was putting this playlist together, maybe they’ll have the best New York rapper or an entire West Coast label represented. Not you though; you’re throwing on Outkast. It may not be the song with the most airplay, but it is the one that might mean the most. As Andre 3000 once said, the South’s got something to say.

    TRACK 5: "Can I Kick It?" by A Tribe Called Quest

    TRACK 5: "Can I Kick It?" by A Tribe Called Quest

    Track five is when the listeners trust you, so you put on a song you really love. It may seem simple -- fun lyrics, call and response, a bassline that sounds familiar -- but you could talk about it for hours. And if you’re listening to your playlist with Hanif Abdurraquib, the writer of the incredible book Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes on A Tribe Called Quest, you’ll want to talk about “Can I Kick It?” for as long as possible

    TRACK 4: "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia

    TRACK 4: "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia

    Track four is when you impress your friends with your deep music knowledge, when you turn to the back seat of the car and say “Did you know Torn is actually a cover? And the first iteration was in Danish?” And then they’re incredibly impressed and you bop along to this iconic pop jam.

    TRACK 3: "Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin

    TRACK 3: "Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin

    Track three is where you kick it up a notch. Add some horns, upbeat vocals, and the tradition of America “discovering” Latin music every decade or so, and you have the smash hit of 1999. But don’t take our word for it: let’s have the writer of Livin’ La Vida Loca and a professor of Latinx studies explain Ricky Martin's importance! You’re living la vida loca if you don’t have this track on your mixtape.

    TRACK 1: "No Scrubs" by TLC

    TRACK 1: "No Scrubs" by TLC

    The first track of the mixtape has to be a banger, get the energy up, and set the tone for the rest of the mix. We had to start ours with a song so good they had to keep the rap verse off the radio, and so pointed a bunch of guys immediately made a rebuttal track. It’s “No Scrubs!”

Fantastic

It may because I am from the uk that I have never before heard of these two women but they seem like natural comedians, very funny girls and they have come up with a fantastic podcast that’s nostalgic and hilarious at the same time.

Great start!

Amazing show, such great energy from the two hosts! And of course the high quality production I have come to expect from a multitude show! I’m looking forward to hearing the rest (bring on the 90’s cheese!)
