Is it Friday night? Are the lights low? Are you looking out for a place to go?
No. No. It’s Monday morning. The air is chill, the campus is quiet, that mysterious bruise you acquired sometime Saturday night hasn’t faded, you’re running late for your 8:10, you spilled a cardboard cup of steaming Peirce coffee on your sweatshirt, and visions of late weekend nights are dancing in your head. You’ve not yet quite come around to the stark realization that your next opportunity to dance, sweaty and enthusiastic, on a stage, table, or other elevated surface with your new best friends of lo these many minutes will not come around for another five days, at least.
Fear not, young co-ed. Here is a playlist that will make you feel like dancing and soften the blow of the weekend’s inevitable but always bittersweet departure. Turn on, turn up, and turn into a dancing queen in the privacy of your own, distinctly less beer-soaked home.
