Elizabeth’s Picks

  1. Give Me Love – Ed Sheeran
  2. Sky High Honey – Matt Nathanson
    New Matt Nathanson!
  3. Distance – Christina Perri ft. Jason Mraz
    This is my favorite Jason Mraz duet since Details in the Fabric with James Morrison.  The lyrics are beautiful, the harmonies are perfect, and um, it’s Jason.
  4. You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling – Glee Cast (Chord Overstreet and Blake Jenner)
    Yes, I still watch Glee.  Why haven’t Sam and Ryder had more duets?
  5. Ho Hey – Nashville Cast (Lennon & Maisy)
    Excellent cover.
  6. Girls Just Want to Have Fun – The Maine ft. Adam Lazzara
    Again, excellent cover (this was not intentional)
  7. Love Letter – Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes
  8. No Sugar in My Coffee – Caught a Ghost
  9. Ball and Biscuit – The White Stripes
  10. Sex – The 1975
  11. Shake It – Metro Station
    When I was moving in, my family and I had a 30-second dance break to this song.  It’s so good!
  12. Alone Together – Fall Out Boy

Jenn’s Picks

  1. You Are The Only One I Love by Jaymay
  2. Santeria by Sublime
    Something about this song just makes me feel summer.
  3. Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance
    I noticed that some of my music choices are heavily influenced by my grief over the Red Wedding..
  4. Coffee by Copeland
  5. Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt
    Tragic Westerosi Kingdom…
  6. How Low by Ludacris
  7. Moment 4 Life by Nicki Minaj with Drake*
  8. She Will by Lil Wayne with Drake*
  9. Make Me Proud by Drake with Nicki Minaj*
  10. Swimming Pools (Drank) by Kendrick Lamar
  11. I’m on One by DJ Khaled with Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne*
  12. Wasting All These Tears by Cassadee Pope
    This is Cassadee’s much-anticipated brand new single and I have to admit, I’m in love. Can’t wait for the album.

My song choices for #6-11 were all produced by our most recent Monday Man Candy , T-Minus. Four of those songs topped the U.S. Hip-Hop/R&B Charts. They are marked with an asterisk.

Monday Man Candy – T-Minus

Hello Monday!  At least there’s some Man Candy to get us through.

This week we are celebrating T-Minus (Tyler Williams), a Canadian hip-hop producer.  He is known for his tracks with Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Drake, T.I., Ciara, and Kelly Rowland.  While vacationing in Jamaica, Rock Paper Watch had the pleasure of meeting his parents.  They were great!  After talking with them, it was obvious that T-Minus is not only lovely to look at, but also a good guy with a strong vision for the future of the music industry.  He’s definitely one to watch and we look forward to following his career.
