News__ HEARTY HANGOVER PLAYLIST

January 20, 2012 | By

DJ SOSUPERSAM has put together a list of 13 songs that will help cure that Irish cough of yours

Hangovers. The downfall of too much fun paired with too much whiskey. Yes, coconut water and Advil will help, but what about curing your "illness" with some music. We all know the right song can take us form 0 to 100 in 2 seconds at a club, so why not take yourself from tired and nauseous to less tired and less nauseous the next day as well.

We had our resident hearty blogger DJ SOSUPERSAM put together a list we know will make you feel a little better. Play one or all, repeat and call us in the evening.

Check out DJ SOSUPERSAM's hearty hangover playlist below.

HEARTY HANGOVER PLAYLIST BY DJ SOSUPERSAM

Beach House - Zebra
Ah, Beach House. Ever so soothing, and best paired with a cup of chamomile tea.

James Blake - The Wilhelm Scream
Ambient and mild, and James Blake kind of sounds like he has a hangover too.

Stevie Wonder - Hey Love
Stevie Wonder is one of my all-time favorite artists of ever.  His voice automatically brightens my mood if I'm feeling crummy.

Arcade Fire - Wake Up
This is that song, especially the last minute and a half  when the drum pattern changes, that will help get your ass out of bed and on time to your 3pm brunch to recap last night's shenanigans. Sunglasses and Advil anyone?

Etta James - A Sunday Kind of Love
Perfect for a Sunday hangover, but will work just fine every other day of the week.

Florence + the Machine - Take Care (Drake cover)
I love Gil Scott-Heron, Jamie XX, Drake and Rihanna, but I'm really into this cover that Florence + the Machine recently did on BBC Radio.

Deniece Williams - Free
The intro of "Free" is so delicate and pretty. Also take one look at how fly Deniece Williams is on the cover of this album ("This is Niecy").  Her floral dress against the matching floral wallpaper will cure your hangover.  The woman was fierce.

Jamie Cullum - Frontin' (Pharrell cover)
Jamie Cullum makes me melt with this jazzy cover. (For the record, Pharrell also makes me melt.)  Play this in bed while checking last night's drunk calls/texts/tweets/instagrams/facebook updates.

Al Green - I'm Still in Love With You
During a trip to SF, I remember nursing a hangover one morning at Eddie's Cafe, this soul food spot that also secretly serves kimchee (yes, kimchee!). They literally played an hour's worth of Al Green hits and it was THE BEST THING EVER.  Al Green wins.

Otis Redding - That's How Strong My Love Is
Oooooooootis. That is all.

Hysteric (acoustic version) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
The It's Blitz! album reminds me of the epic happy times of  summer 2009.  And this song in particular got me through a lot of LA rush hour traffic without losing my mind, so I assume we can also apply it to hangovers.

Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place
Upbeat yet still easy on the ears. Talking Heads is sure to get you over the hangover hump.

Doris Troy - Just One Look
The jam. "Just One Look" reached new heights of awesome when it was included in the soundtrack for "Crazy Stupid Love."  And we all know that Ryan Gosling's abs cure cancer right?  I meannn.

Try listening to any or all of the above for a cure to your hangover.
