Sasha Frere-Jones’ Perfect Recordings


New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones recently compiled a series of four playlists on Spotify of “perfect” songs: vol 1, vol 2, vol 3, vol 4, vol 5. Among the songs found on the playlists are Maps by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blue Moon by Elvis, Pony by Ginuwine, Tranmission by Joy Division, Tennis Court by Lorde, No Scrubs by TLC, and Rock Steady by Aretha Franklin. The playlists are also available on Rdio, courtesy of my friend Matt: vol 1, vol 2, vol 3, vol 4, and vol 5.

Yeah, this was great fun to watch as he was posting. I dumped them into one 13+ hour Rdio playlist.
