Welcome to the new BU Central blog! Here is where all of the BU Central staff will bring you into their music world in all different ways. Check back regularly for posts about new bands, catchy songs, killer shows, must have playlists, and of course, to find out what’s going on at BU Central.
For my first post, I thought I would put together a playlist of what we have been listening to all summer in BU Central. As we have been planning events for the fall and putting on orientation dance parties, these five songs make up the soundtrack to our summer.
1. Chiddy Bang – All Things Go
Chiddy Bang easily wins as the most played artist in BU Central. We listen to his mixtape, “The Swelly Life” on repeat, especially on our arts & crafts days. This song samples Sufjan Stevens – Chicago (shout out to you, Rose!).
2. Usher – OMG
This song is insanely catchy and one of our guilty pleasures.
3. Sleigh Bells – Tell ‘Em
There was a point during the summer when this song was played at least five times or more a day. Once we got our new sound system, you better believe we had Tell ‘Em blasting for everyone to hear.
4. Major Lazer – Pon De Floor
At Orientation dance parties, the clip of this song that DJ Case played would get us on that dance floor almost as quick as OMG did. Okay, maybe quicker. Turn it up and dance.
5. Lady GaGa – Bad Romance
Thanks to our lovely friends at Orientation, we learned the dance to Bad Romance, which is why this song deserves to have the video posted as well. Now imagine BU Central packed with Orientation leaders, and of course the BU Central summer staff, all doing this dance. Paws up, little monsters.
1. Far East Movement – Like a G6
2. Foxy Shazam – Oh, Lord!
3. Katy Perry – California Gurls
4. Little Boots – New in Town
… and because this was the inspiration of our themed night.
5. Lady GaGa & Beyonce – Telephone
It’s been an eventful summer here at BU Central and I can’t wait to share everything that has been going on with all of you! I hope you enjoy (and dance to) these songs as much as we have. Stay tuned for more posts and big BU Central announcements!!
p.s. Share your summer playlists with us!
