Don’t Throw Shade, Throw Parties – Hangout Festival Playlist

We are three days away from Hangout Festival 2017!

We’ve gathered  some of our old crew (710) and some new friends and we’re heading to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a much needed vacation filled with live music. We haven’t done this as a group since Bonnaroo 2011.  So basically we’re expecting a beautiful disaster.

Issa festival!!

We’ve pulled together a playlist of the artists we’re really excited to see. Frank Ocean canceled at the last minute, so we’re a little bummed, but it’s not the end of the world. The theme for our time at the beach is: Don’t throw shade, throw parties!

Magical Music: 25 of The Best Disney Songs of All Time

Debate me if you dare, but some of the best songs of all-time come from Disney movies. So how can you create a list of the best Disney songs?  I started writing down my favorites (my list had 35 songs) and then I took to social media to get some additional perspective for this near impossible task. If the song was one I wrote down and it received more than one additional vote it made the list. I’d like to confess right now that there were no outside votes for any Artistocats songs and I was offended. I added to them the list anyway. 🙂 There were a lot of votes for songs from Beauty and the Beast, but just about every Disney fan has gone to see it, so I expected a lot of votes for those songs.

25 Of The Best Disney Songs of All Time

To be very very clear, this is not a ranking. To quote one of my favorite movies, Ever After: I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens.
  1. “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You”Mulan 
  2. “Circle of Life” The Lion King
  3. “Let It Go”Frozen
  4. “Beauty & The Beast” (C’mon you know where this is from) The original version obviously. No one will ever sing this better than Queen Celine and the legendary Peabo Bryson.
  5. “Under the Sea”The Little Mermaid
  6. “Hakuna Matata”The Lion King
  7. “Be Our Guest” Beauty and the Beast
  8. “A Whole New World” Aladdin
  9. “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” — Toy Story  This one’s a Disney/Pixar, but it counts!
  10. “Part of Your World”  — The Little Mermaid
  11. “Reflection”Mulan
  12. “Almost There” — The Princess and the Frog
  13. “Colors of the Wind”Pocahontas
  14. “Be Prepared” — The Lion King
  15. “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” — Hercules
  16. “When You Wish Upon a Star”Pinocchio 
  17. “Everybody Wants to Be A Cat”The Aristocats 
  18. “You’ll Be In My Heart”Tarzan
  19. “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”The Lion King
  20. “Cruella De Vil”101 Dalmatians
  21. “The Bare Necessities”The Jungle Book
  22. “How Far I’ll Go” — Moana
  23. “Thomas O’Malley Cat”The Aristocats
  24.  “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”Cinderella
  25. “Ma Belle Evangeline”The Princess and the Frog

One of my friends loves A Goofy Movie and one of her suggestions was I2I. Yup, so although it technically only had one vote, it makes the list as a bonus song. I mean you really can’t go wrong with a little Tevin Campbell.

Bonus: “I2I” A Goofy Movie

 If I make a part two of the best Disney songs what songs should I include? Leave a comment below!

Never Turn Down: Black History Month Playlist

Black History Month Playlist - The Palmetto Peaches

February is almost over, but feel free to carry this Black History Month Playlist into Melanin March and every other month in the year. I didn’t pick these songs because they’re about “being black”. Some of the jams celebrate blackness, some remind me of my family, friends, and childhood, while others remind me of the struggle. Instead of explaining why this playlist is so necessary to me, I’ll let Tina Lawson school ya.

“It’s such beauty in black people, and it really saddens me when we’re not allowed to express that pride in being black, and that if you do, then it’s considered anti-white. No! You just pro-black. And that’s okay. The two don’t go together. Because you celebrate black culture does not mean that you don’t like white culture or that you putting it down. It’s just taking pride in it, but what’s irritating is when somebody says, you know, “They’re racist!”, “That’s reverse racism!” or, “They have a Black History Month, but we don’t have a White History Month!”

Well, all we’ve ever been taught is white history. So, why are you mad at that? Why does that make you angry? That is to suppress me and to make me not be proud.”

-Interlude: Tina Taught Me (A Seat at the Table)

Let’s be honest, A Seat at the Table (Solange) and To Pimp A Butterfly (Kendrick Lamar) could’ve made up for half of this playlist, but that was too easy. Let me also point out that Beyoncé’s Lemonade isn’t on Spotify, along with a handful of other songs I wanted to add to this playlist — but I did my best! Enjoy and remember to never turn down!

Warning: I tried to find “clean” versions, but some songs may contain explicit language.

Music Midtown 2016 – Palmetto Peaches’ Playlist

Music Midtown 2016 - The Palmetto Peaches' Playlists - palmsinatl.comWow, we haven’t had a Palmetto Peaches’ Playlist in a while. The last was in May, to be exact. One of the reasons I love living in Atlanta is all of the opportunities to see amazing musical performances. Just about every major tour stops through the city and we have some great smaller venues for artists as well. Although, I opted out of Beyonce this year so I could save a few coins. I did spring for Music Midtown tickets. I’m so excited for Music Midtown 2016, happening this weekend. Check out my recap from last year’s festival. I’m most excited to see The Killers, James Bay, Kesha, Corrine Bailey Rae, Alabama Shakes, and DNCE. However, I just love live music in general and am ready for the experience.

Get Fit Playlist

Get Fit Playlist - The Palmetto PeachesI don’t know about you but when I listen to music I tend to have a more productive. I also don’t find myself counting down the seconds to the end of the exercise or run. In my effort to get summertime fine I did some research on how best to incorporate  music into your workout. I learned that you playlist should include songs that build up to the same BPM as your target heart rate, which is actually a range.(Caution: Some math follows.)

Your target heart rate = 50 percent to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate.

Your maximum heart rate is about 220 minus your age.  So for me:

  • Maximum Heart Rate: 220 – 26 = 194 beats per minute/BPM

  • Target Heart Rate: 97 – 165 BPM

According to the American Heart Association: Heart rate during moderately intense activities is about 50-69% of your maximum heart rate, whereas heart rate during hard physical activity is about 70% to less than 90% of the maximum heart rate.

I’ve pulled together this Get Fit Playlist with the BPM of each song included. Feel free to customize your own playlist based on your target heart rate. There are plenty of apps or resources that can help you identify the BPM of your favorite songs.
