Playlist of the Week Playlist of the Issue is a 5-10 song playlist of songs that you, the Seattle Academy student, are listening to. Each issue a new student’s playlist will be featured. If you’d like to be featured, send me, Alice Flood, an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we’ll discuss from there. Playlist of the Issue knows no limits as to the genres of music; we want to know what YOU like! I want this feature to help us all discover new music as well as learn what kind of stuff our friends are listening to. This issue features the playlist of Khoa Nguyen ‘13.
- 1. “Common”- 16 Bars Freestyle
Lyricism is thought, style, and emotion. Lyricism is the soul. Lyricism is hip hop.
- 2. “Otherside”- The Roots
“Otherside” is a single chapter in the life of a young person trapped in the depths of the city. This story is all too common and all too known to those stuck in poverty. Listen to the whole album for the complete story.
- 3. “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”- Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill’s cover of Frankie Valli’s song speaks to every one of us wherever we may be in this journey of life. Love cannot be defined by one who hasn’t found love or lost it.
- 4. “Just Begun”- Reflection Eternal featuring Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, J. Cole, & Mos Def
Hip Hop’s best come together for this collaboration. Thank God hip hop ain’t dead.
- 5. “Sittin’ On the Dock of The Bay”- Otis Redding
Moments happen and fade. Words are said and forgotten. People come and go. So tell us, Otis, what's it like to sit on the dock of the Bay, watching the tides roll away?
