america, you're freaking me out
This mix should be full of tracks painfully narrowed down from the latest Springsteen album (have I mentioned it's amazing?), the new Mary Lattimore, and that Lecrae album I finally caught up on (spoilers for next week?), but with us less than a week from what could be the most important election of our lifetimes, I thought it was time to dig out some tracks from a playlist I call the "Soundtrack to the Revolution".
Well, maybe more than some. Forty-one tracks, clocking in just shy of two and a half hours, this is the perfect mix to amp you up through the weekend, if you find yourself waiting in line for hours so you can exercise your vote, or during what will surely be days and weeks before we actually know the results.
I structured the order around pieces from Max Richter's latest album, Voices, based around the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a topic as relevant now as it was then.
It's time for action, folks.
If you were able to vote early, I hope you did. But still go if you didn't. If you were able to vote by mail, I hope you did. But if you haven't yet, drop that thing off in person or get to the polls on Election Day (per your state's election laws).
There are forces of bad intention who know they can win by discouraging those of us fighting for the good. Do not let them stop us. Let's don those masks and get this shit done.
However this election goes, we have so much work ahead of us.
Turn this up. Let's get to work.
WQPM playlists are a collection of ten songs I've been listening to this week, crossing genre, era, and taste. No themes here, just the tunes I've been sticking in my ears lately. The newest Weekly Quick Pick Mix is available on Spotify and Apple Music.
