Songs To Go With Your Margarita

By Hannah Klubeck ’18

It’s Friday night and you, your friends, and the guy down the hall, are sitting in your dorm, deciding on how you want to kick off your Friday night. In these last warm days on the Hill (or wherever you may be), margaritas seem most suitable.

But the music. What do you do? You start to shuffle your most recent playlist but the folk song that just came on doesn’t sit well with the salt and the lime.

Now you’re sweating. Not only is your room filling with body heat, but Wilco is playing and everyone’s looking at you for a change in ambiance. “Play something that maybe fits the mood” they suggest. “Anything works but like.. play something fun” they passive aggressively request. You’re getting clammy and your drink is too full. You quickly type in wkco.org/blog/. Maybe they’ll inspire me, you think to yourself. I’m telling you now – we’ll do more than that. We’re hand delivering, to your personal device, 14 songs that will so perfectly complement tonight’s beverage of choice. Enjoy.
