Raise Your Glass – P!nk

27 February 2018

Hey Everyone, 

I hope you all enjoyed another Spunky Week on this rock orbiting around the sun we call home!

This week’s track is Raise Your Glass by P!nk. A classic pop hit from 2010 that sizzles and pops perfectly alongside the variety we have conjured up along the way with this list.

I love this song because it is a fight song and a call to arms for weirdos, freaks, and extravagant people…

I Want A New Drug – Huey Lewis & The News

20 February 2018

Hey guys! Welcome back –

This week’s track i’d like to dedicate to my mom. She introduced me to Huey Lewis & The News by playing it many times over the cassette player in the family’s 1995 Chevy Lumina. This track not only has me nostalgic, but it also makes me smile and dig deeper into the mounds of great music form the 80’s era of Rock N’ Roll…

Why Don’t You Come On – DJDS Featuring Khalid and Empress Of

14 February 2018

Welcome Back, Today’s track is conveniently a love duet by DJDS featuring artists Khalid and Empress Of. I Like this track, its simple, but holds a powerful message. It paints a story perfectly for the listener to imagine two lovers passionately devoted to each other.

Feels Great Ft. Fetty Wap & CVBC – Cheat Codes

7 February 2018

First and foremost I apologize for my small absence the past few weeks. All systems are go and we are back to submitting weekly tracks until further notice! This week’s track is one of my favorite pump up songs. “Feels Great” Featuring Fetty Wap & CVBC really gives off nothing but positive vibrations and smiles for me as I reminisce on what it means to enjoy every moment. 

Walk on Water – Thirty Seconds To Mars

9 January 2018

‘What would you do if you could walk on water?’

Hey guys, I hope another week has found you in a harmonious place. I’ve come to a sudden realization – the world is constantly force feeding us negative events, commentary, war, destruction, racism, and sometimes even deception. We never focus on the positive – we are too busy fixating on the negative.

Mambo No. 5 (a little Bit of…) – Lou Bega

2 January 2018

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and the turning of a stone into the new year! I appreciate you all so much, and am thrilled to play a small role in your routine as you tune into the Sizzle Bacon Playlist!

Anna Sun – Walk The Moon

18 December 2017

Welcome Back! Approaching the Holiday Season at breakneck speed here in the states has everyone rushed, stressing, and “adulting” something severely. I honestly can not think of a single track more important to be showcased this week than Walk The Moon’s “Anna Sun”.

The Lazy Song – Bruno Mars

12 December 2017

This week’s track is by one of my all-time favorite artists – Bruno Mars. Guys, I can’t tell you how badly I’ve needed this track this week. I just came back from a mini vacation in the city of Los Angeles. The seventy degree weather and sunny skies almost tricked me into thinking it was May back here in the Midwest. 

Walk – Foo Fighters

6 December 2017

Sometimes life throws sand in your eyes, shoves you to the ground, and puts the whole weight of the world on top of you. In these moments you have a choice. You can stay down and let life zoom past you, or, you can lick your wounds and regain your balance by striding one foot in front of the other towards the goal line. 

Good Old Days – Mackelmore Feat Kesha

28 November 2017

I must admit, It is getting increasingly hard to select tracks for this playlist. I am constantly absorbing the music around me and have found one major conundrum. There is just too much music that gets me excited and would fit perfectly in the sizzle bacon list. I find myself counting down the days to share day every week!

Tubthumping – Chumbawamba

21 November 2017

Another week is in the highlight reel as we drive on into whatever journey lay in front of us. This band is one of my all-time favorites because of their willingness and ability to stand in the face of oppression and authority and politely raise their middle fingers. Formed in 1982, Chumbawamba has undergone numerous stylistic changes, drawing an audience from various listeners and groups. One thing remained consistent for this British band, and that was their moral compass…

Nothing In Your Life – Nat Torn

14 November 2017

Another beautiful week of life, Sharing music never ceases to be anything less than the maraschino cherry atop this delicacy I get to experience alongside you all. It is my absolute honor to introduce to you this week’s featured track: “Nothing In Your Life” by Nat Torn. At first, the funky rift immediately catches your ear and has you rhythmically bopping. Then, like a snake charmer, once Nat Torn’s vocals hit, the listener has no choice but to succumb to a powerful and gripping Indie trance. Don’t panic, your body and mind will once again rejoin, but only after completing this 5 minute journey of a lifetime.
