On my iPod: Alison Brie

Posted on

BIRDY NAM NAM ”GOIN’ IN (SKRILLEX GOIN’ DOWN MIX)”

”It’s off the Spring Breakers soundtrack, and right after I saw it I went through a period of being obsessed. It gets me really pumped. I feel like a badass when I listen to it.”

ALEXANDER ”TRUTH”

”I could not overplay this song [by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert]. A friend of mine had sent it to me, and I was like, ‘You know me so well.’ This is not a badass song for me — it’s more just…calming. I like to listen to it first thing in the morning. The vibe just makes me happy.”

MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS ”THRIFT SHOP”

”I have this tendency to get hot on a song, like, six months to a year after it’s been really popular. When I came back after Community‘s summer hiatus, I was like, You have to hear this song ‘Call Me Maybe’! [Laughs]”

FLORENCE + THE MACHINE ”SHAKE IT OUT”

”I’ll listen to it on my way to an audition, and then when I find out that I didn’t book it, I’ll listen to it again to be like, ‘Everything’s gonna be okay!’ It’s my empowerment song.”

R. KELLY ”IGNITION (REMIX)”

”I love it, even though I know R. Kelly and his history. I play it mostly when I’m running at the gym. Sometimes I’ll just put it on repeat. It puts me in, like, a cool-sexy zone — sexy, but not too dirty.”
