Babe Walker, the witty brains and bitchy voice behind the twitter sensation White Girl Problems, is partnering with Milk Made and Kanon Vodka to throw an irreverent book release party tomorrow night at Milk Gallery.
Babe was kind enough to drop off a mix tape for us to add to our collection, along with a little note about what the songs mean to her:
“Music is almost as important to me as alkaline water and Xanax, so I wasn’t mad at all when my chic little friends at Milk Made asked me to put together a playlist. This list is essentially a clusterfuck of my emotional highs and lows, with each song representing a person or period in my life. I mean, like a period with a tampon, not a period of time. Music is sometimes all you have when you’re on the bleedsies. Gritty, sexy, and chic are three words that could describe my musical taste. Or my hair tonight, if this blowout goes as planned. Yes, I’m in the middle of getting a blowout. Hope you enjoy, psychos!” - Babe Walker
Animotion - Obsession
The BEST song for doing a striptease in the mirror and crawling around sensuously on the floor when you’re super bored and none of your friends are texting you back about what the plans are for the night.
The Psychedelic Furs - Love My Way
My boyfriend, my rules, the end.
Alanis Morisette - You Oughtta Know
I like to sing this when I’m driving in my bulletproof/soundproof black Range Rover to practice my scream/sing voice. It has the best acoustics.
Beyonce - I Care
I care SO MUCH.
Nirvana - In Bloom
There was an entire year in the 90’s where all I got was a Kurt Cobain haircut/color and only wore Perry Ellis.
Daft Punk - Something About Us
On mushrooms, eyes closed, shoulder dancing.
Fiona Apple - Criminal
Fiona in this music video is the reason I get out of bed and eat a kale smoothie for breakfast every morning.
Chic - Le Freak (c’est chic)
One of my favorite words is also one of my favorite bands and one of my favorite songs.
Duran Duran - Notorious
This song was playing when I was born. What? My mom was a supermodel. Get off me.
Major Lazer - Original Don
If I’ve taken too much Xanax, I play this song and it straightens me out.
Fleetwood Mac - Little Lies
Fleetwood Mac is my soul.
Paris Hilton - Stars Are Blind
Paris paid me with a Birkin to put this on my list.
Pat Benatar - We Belong
Even if we’re in a fight, this song will always make me think of my best friend. Then I’ll text her to tell her she’s a cunt.
