It’s Thursday! This means that we’re throwing it back to some of our favorite past beats. From ska punk and alternative rock to guilty pleasure 90’s hits, we’ve got an array of tunes that will make your day on this month’s playlist!

Sublime – 40 oz to Freedom
“This album always reminds me of the summer when I was 16. I had this ridiculous Isuzu Amigo that could only play cassettes. When I managed to get my hands on the 40 oz to freedom tape, it was in serious rotation all summer.” – Meg McConnell, Creative Consultant

Beyoncé  feat. Jay Z – Bonnie & Clyde
“This song reminds me that as long as you have people by your side you can do anything, whether it’s a best friend, co-worker, significant other, someone that can be there no matter what. My favorite line is, ‘She do anything necessary for him, and I do anything necessary for her.” – Nicole Prechtl, Sales Manager

Britney Spears – Baby One More Time
“I love this song and any playlist made up of Britney or 90’s boy band songs because it reminds me of how my best friend and I always listen to them in the car or on road trips together.”- Christina Morgan, Executive Assistant

2pac – Keep Ya Head Up
“I love this song because no matter what, as the rapper says, even though the odds are stacked against us as minorities in America and the system wants us to lose, we still need to keep our head up.”- Issacc Cearc, Implementation Coordinator

R Kelly – Ignition Remix
“Why do I like this song? It’s the remix to ignition…it’s hot and fresh out the kitchen.” – Ariel Markowitz, Director of Creative Services
