AbsolutePlaylist: "Don't Ever Play Akon Again"

Posted by - 08:12 AM on 02/28/14
Welcome back to AbsolutePlaylist, a feature that will bring you a playlist each Friday from one of our staff members or a special guest to ring your weekend in the right way. This week I'm taking you to the local bar here at UConn where if you don't put money in the jukebox, the music stops and everyone gets awkward. Thankfully, they have great drink deals, so I spend more money on songs than on beer - here's what I put on in the last month. Check out the playlist on Rdio and Spotify in the replies.

About the playlist:
When you're out at a bar and it's a dollar for five drinks, you're going to have a lot of cash left over. Here are what I've put on at the bar at school with some of that money - some of them were received better ("American Boy," "All Star") than the others ("Smack That"). When the stars align just right, the bar erupts into a transcendent moment to insist that they don't want no scrubs - or to ever hear Akon again. Their loss.

Just finished listening! Great mix.

I love bars that have this feature. I went crazy when I saw one system had The Menzingers. I was so happy to blast The Obituaries.

Man. I would hit up a bar with one dollar for five drinks every night and force so much mid-00s music on people. Great idea.
