our blushing bride’s wedding playlist

Some brides opt for traditional and elegant, while others take an edgy route. Some brides wouldn’t be caught dead in anything but a white wedding gown, while some are more than willing to mix it up with a flash of color. When it comes to tying the knot, there are no hard and fast rules, but one thing everyone can agree on that a great playlist is a must for a memorable reception.

With that in mind, we’ve put together the ultimate wedding playlist, for every mood, every moment and every memory in the making.

To walk down the aisle: Moon River, Instrumental, George Winston

listen up! rock out this Memorial Day

Hey there tartelettes, the grill will be hot, the sun will be out,  and you’ll probably have a good grasp on something cold and refreshing this Memorial Day — but what about tunes? We’ve put together a goof proof playlist to make sure — regardless of where you’re celebrateing —  the vibe is good and everyone is dancing.  Have fun and be safe!

Boat party? Turn up  Starships by Nicki Minaj.

Summer night rooftop jam? Try The Wanted, Glad You Came.

Oh attending a BBQ? We suggest a little Snoop Dog and Whiz Khalifa, Young, Wild, and Free.

Camping in the great outdoors? Animal kingdom,  Strange Attractor should help you become one with nature.

But if you’re planing on spending this Memorial Day at the beach, why not go old school? We’re partial to beach party classic Surfin’ USA, by the Beach Boys.

 

 

listen up: and work it out!

Summers coming ladies and we’ve put together some hot beats to get your blood pumping for an amazing work out! We jacked the iPods from some of the tartelettes here in the office and created the ultimate fitness playlist.

So tie your laces, stretch it out, and crank the volume…..it’s time to get your butt in gear!

 

1.) A-Trak feat. CyHi Da Prynce – “Ray-Ban”

“If I don’t have amazing music at the gym, my legs turn into cinder blocks and this song makes me move.” -Jenna, creative marketing manager

 

2.) ACDC- “Shook Me All Night Long”

“I listen to this song when I work out because I love rock and it gets me pumping” -Nuria, production coordinator

 

3.) Gwen Stefani- “Hollaback Girl”

“I listen to this right before I start running hard on the treadmill. I swear by it…actually that whole album is great for the gym” – Koryn, community manager

 

4.) Afrojack- “bang duck”

“The beat just gets me up and moving” – Heather,  executive director; operation and product development

 

5.) Green Day- “Brain Stew”

listen up: fresh from the recording studio

My top five favorite new tunes for a wintry weekend. Trust me, all your friends have these jams already. Don’t be the last to know, download these now!


1. Cage the Elephant, “Aberdeen”

From Bowling Green, Kentucky; these southern boys have made a name for themselves through high energy live performances and amazing lyrics —  making them a huge hit in the U.S. and U.K.

 


2. The Wombats, “Jump into The Fog”

While they have a completely different sound than The Beatles, the two bands share the same home, Liverpool, and man, do they know how to rock. The Wombats have that awesome British feel to them that we all know and love. Want to indulge in some musical Anglophilia?  Just plug in the headphones and turn it up.

 


3. M83, “Midnight City”

M83 is the brainchild of French musician Anthony Gonzalez. With a unique sound, M83 never disappoints. This is my go-to workout song when I’m feeling lazy and blah..it really gets my blood pumping!

 


4. Imperial Teen,“Runaway”

Having provided the soundtrack to the infamous and iconic scene of four teen beauties — the original mean girls — walking down their high school hallway in 1999’s twisted comedy Jawbreaker, Imperial Teen may be a throwback, but well worth a second glance. I’m thrilled that they are making such a strong impact. Check ‘em out!

 


5. The Naked and Famous, “Girls like you”

Who doesn’t love an import from Down Under?? The Naked and Famous is a New Zealand indie rock band from Auckland. Do yourself a favor and download them now. These guys are an incendiary force to be reckoned with.
