Kesha Picks Songs for Her Ultimate Party Playlist
When it comes to partying, few people know how to do it like ‘Sleazy’ songstress Kesha. The Nashville native recently shared her ultimate party playlist with Rolling Stone, and some of her song choices might surprise you.
Before sharing her playlist, Kesha actually recalled her most memorable rager, which she attended when she was just 15 years old. She told the publication, “The couch was on fire, there were sweaty, shirtless people dancing. That’s why I do what I do: I like seeing people lose their s—- and not give a f—- about what other people think of them.”
When it comes to getting the party started, it seems like Kesha gravitates to some of classic rock’s most iconic songs. She cites the Rolling Stones‘ 1968 track ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ as a song that makes her want “to go f—-ing crazy.” She also included Alice Cooper‘s song ‘School’s Out for Summer,’ which Kesha actually covered live in concert.
She also loves Iggy Pop‘s ‘Real Wild Child (Wild One),’ saying, “This is my theme song. It’s my walk-off music at shows. Iggy is one of my ultimate heroes.” She also digs the Talking Heads‘ looming hit ‘Psycho Killer,’ telling Rolling Stone, “My friends and I loved this song so much we decided to give each other ‘Psycho Killer’ tattoos inside our lips, but we were so f—-ed up it ended being a disgusting, bloody mess. This comes on, I dance even if I’m dead sober.”
In addition to these rock songs, Kesha also digs newer rock songs, like the bluesy track ‘Thickfreakness’ by the Black Keys. “This takes me back to when I used to chase the Black Keys around Southern California at 17,” she says. “I met them a few times, and they were terrified of me.” The ‘Cannibal’ songstress also loves OutKast‘s ‘Hey Ya,’ and to be honest, who doesn’t love that song? “One of the best songs of hip-hop ever. A party anthem forever,” Kesha said, summing up the 2009 hit.
Who knew Kesha was such a music buff? Even though she wakes up in the morning “feeling like P. Diddy,” it’s nice to know there is a little bit of Iggy Pop, David Byrne, Mick Jagger, Dan Auerbach and Andre 3000 thrown in there as well.
