There’s no better way to count down to the New Year than with tunes that ring true. We asked Mosaic Whisper Julie Kravitz to put together a playlist that’ll gear you up for change. So jot down those resolutions, check them twice, and kiss 2008 goodbye.
“Les and Ray,” by Le Tigre
(Get to know your neighbors.)
“Runaround Sue,” by Dion
(Keep away from her. Unless you are her. In which case, stop.)
“Freedom,” by George Michael
(You’ve gotta give for what you take.)
“Smile Upon Me,” by Passion Pit
(Turn that frown upside down.)
“What’s a Girl to Do?,” by Bat for Lashes
(Ask your therapist.)
“Chemicals,” by The Notwist
“Rock Steady,” by Aretha Franklin
(Call things as they is.)
“Postcards from Italy,” by Beirut
(Indulge your travel bug.)
“Since I Left You,” by The Avalanches
(Call it quits. Move on.)
Here’s to a divine 2009.
