Thursday pregame playlist: Isaac Assor

Another reason to love fall break: it’s already Thursday! For this week’s “Thursday Pregame Playlist,” we sat down with pianist/singer and musical director of Nonsequitur Isaac Assor, CC ’14. Playlist after the jump.

Move On Up – Curtis Mayfield. The song sampled in “Touch the Sky.” Curtis Mayfield is a boss.

Take Me to the River – Al Green. This has always been a favorite of mine. Great groove, awesome falsetto, can’t go wrong.

Blame It On Cain – Elvis Costello. Such a fantastic song—really gritty recording. It gets stuck in your head and refuses to get out.

Breakin’ the Chains of Love – Fitz & the Tantrums. These guys capture that old Motown feel so well. Awesome voice, oozes cool.

Try a Little Tenderness – Otis Redding. Not that Otis.

Beast of Burden – The Rolling Stones. One of the best feel good songs I know. Terrific song to which you can pound brews.

Love That Girl – Raphael Saadiq. Another track that sounds like it’s right out of the time capsule. One of my favorite party songs lately, hope it’ll be one of yours too!

Girl – Beck. Changing the mood a little bit…always thought this was such a cool recording.

Loving You – Paolo Nutini. If your night is successful, this is a great song to come back to.

Let’s Go Get Stoned
– Ray Charles. No blurb necessary.
