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.
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!

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.
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.
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.

If you don’t know by now The Palmetto Peaches love a good playlist. I’ve made playlists for the best cover songs, work out jams, and productivity. With Valentine’s Day approaching, I thought I’d put together a little love jams playlist. You can play this as you’re having your dinner for two on Tuesday or on your way to your early Valentine’s dinner this weekend.There are some cheesy songs, but cheese it up. Twirl your significant other around.

Wow, 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.
If you’re not making the trip to Atlanta for this years’ festival (or if music festivals aren’t your thing), I’ve pulled together a playlist of some of my favorite songs from some of the artists of Music Midtown 2016. Hopefully, you discover someone new or just an awesome playlist to jam out to.
Feel free to take a full look at the full lineup and send me any suggestions for artists to check out or songs to add my Music Midtown 2016 playlist!
