Staff Picks : December 2018 *Song of the Year*

Copy of Dec 2018.pngWe asked the ZUMIX Staff what song they returned to over and over this year and here they are! ‘Song of the Year’ is the vibe for this month’s staff picks and we hope you take a listen to the tracks!

Slide” by Calvin Harris (ft. Frank Ocean & Migos)

“This is a go to song either in the car or on my headphones during the commute. It makes for a good commute soundtrack.” – Kim Dawson, Director of Advancement

“Regarding the Ascending Stairs” by Lady Lamb

“Lady Lamb is definitely an artist I’ve come back to obsessively this year, but haven’t put on my Staff Picks yet. Lady Lamb’s songs are both the thick quicksand heartbreak and the elation of the promise of love. They are rich with beautiful poetry and metaphors that simultaneously punch you in the gut and fill your lungs with air as you shout along to the lyrics.  Kind of like Neutral Milk Hotel, but with a lady songwriter, and also much, much better.” – Sarah Saydun, Pathways Coordinator

That’s the Way I Feel About Cha ” by Aretha Franklin

“I don’t know how many times I’ve listened to this Bobby Womack cover this year, but it’s probably in the hundreds – Aretha Franklin is otherworldly.” – Ali McGuirk, Play It Forward Instructor

“Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley

“Let’s not take 2018 too seriously. HAPPY NEW YEAR!” –Julianna Quiroz, Administrative Assistant and Events Staff

“Somebody to Love” by Queen

“Older song I’ve come back to, this live version shows what a fabulous live band with only 4 people on stage can do— more concise and powerful than the studio version.” – Mr.Ed, Piano Instructor

“High Highs to Low Lows” by Lolo Zouaï

“I returned to this song so many times in 2018, Lolo Zouaï is such a unique entry and her ‘high high’ track is so relatable para mi, love this sound and can’t wait for more music from this artist” – Rene Dongo, Radio Station Manager
