MAC Weekly Waves 26: Headbangers and Sofa Throwers

This week’s playlist was curated by @coryedwards50 then ordered by @kazm33 and created by me. The idea is the playlist is gonna make you wanna throw a sofa out a window and head bang with your house on fire. The playlist progressively gets more and more aggressive if you play it in order, if you don’t its still gonna be great to play at your next mosh pit.

Weekly Waves 23: Artists We Used to Love

We love these guys artists but they’ve been a bit disappointing of late… Curated by @kazm33 this weeks playlist ties into his blog post that you can find here. Check it out and check out this week’s playlist for some sweet tunes from a better day.

 

Weekly Waves Vol. 22 Captain America’s iPod

This week’s playlist was curated by @mburnsoh and revolves around a theme of Captain America’s playlist. Ranging from songs he missed out on to songs he was probably referred to its a good variety of genres. Check it out here and check out the idea of playlist’s for fictional people here.

 

 

Playlist for Fictional People

So I have a little hobby of making up Spotify playlist for fictional characters from comics and movies. You’d be surprised by the number of folks that have curated collections of songs inspired by the likes of Spider-Man or Game of Thrones. I first heard the new Ice Cube song Good Cop, Bad Cop on a playlist dedicated to the Night King.

It’s fun for me when I get wrapped up in a story line or something to think what music a particular character would be listening to on the daily. My first playlist was for My Hero Academia teacher Shota Aizawa. I just heard songs that reminded me of his story and characterization. He somewhat disapproves of All-Mights bravado so the Kendrick Lamar track Humble was perfect.

I’m a huge fan of Marvel’s Ant-Man so I built one for him full of some cheesey moments, songs with a nod to science too.

If you type almost anything into Spotify search you’re gonna probably get a hit. I found a Castlevania playlist with almost 8 hours of music from the classic video game franchise, including 8-bit renditions and heavy metal versions of the iconic music as well.

My favorite that I’ve been working on is dedicated to Jean Grey and her recent story line from then Phoenix Returns Saga. Issue 11 of the Young Jean Grey and the new launch of X-Men Red was just exciting and I wanted some tunes to capture the new directions for the classic Marvel Comics character.

So checkout some of this stuff on your Spotify or streaming service and build your own based on Fox Mulder or Garfield or whatever. Let me know and I’ll check it out. I even got the rest of the Mid-American-Culture staff on board for our weekly waves as we figure out what would be on Captain America’s iPod so watch out for that. Happy Saturday!
