As the BLASTmedia office gears up for Labor Day weekend, music echoes jovially over the clickity-clack of keyboard strokes. Once in a blue moon, someone will notice a tune is actually an advert and turn to a member of the digital advertising team to jest about the placement. While many of us BLASTies spend our days optimizing and planning digital advertisements in online music streams like Spotify and Pandora, we all spend a great deal of time listening to their jams. As Labor Day weekend approaches and roadways become parking lots, we’d like to share some of our favorite playlists to get you through that anticipatory Friday afternoon, and weekend travel.
- Hall & Oates Radio – You don’t have to be a Rich Girl to get down to these classics (you’re welcome to the advert-averse for the free streaming). Get amped up for your weekend, and teach the youngsters what real music once sounded like
- 90′s Hip Hop – A Friday favorite in the BLASTmedia office, these tunes will have you [w]rapping up your to-do list faster than you can say “U can’t touch this” to your inbox
- Today’s Hip Hop – Digital advertiser Brian Walker knows what he likes, and it certainly isn’t 50′s big band music
- Justin Timberlake – No one would dare change the station with PR account executive Francesca Marino’s pitch for the Prince of Pop, “It has a good mix of old and new music, everything is pretty fast paced and will keep people entertained on long a long road trip or for a cookout”
- Tom Petty’s Greatest Hits – When VP of digital advertising Jeff Gasior isn’t looking for a breakdown of data, he’s getting down to, “without question, the best travel music” around
- Coldplay – For those of you looking for a more relaxed weekend, resident social & paid guru Kathleen Blotsky recommends chilling out with Chris Martin
- Hello Weekend – This playlist on 8tracks radio recommended by social maven Grace Williams was “inspired by/really for that perpetual TGIF state of mind and summer paradise feeling”
