Thank God for Fridays eh? and while we’re at it thank God for Thelma Plum. It’s fair to say we’re a little bit in love with the
Brisbane Sydney Melbourne based singer-songwriter and her sophisticated, unmistakeably Australian style of indie pop.
Thelma recently released the Monsters EP that features the killer spaghetti western by way of the Bronx Jam, How Much Does Your Love Cost? Which is the best kind of ear worm.
We caught up with Miss Plum this week and asked if she’d hit us with her ‘TGIF and the weekend has landed’ jams, not only did she come through with a killer selection that you can stream below, she also gave us a little quip about each tune and why it made the cut.
"Chamakay" - Blood Orange
Basically anything Blood Orange will work for a Friday but this is the song if you wanna get your boogie on.
"Too Young" - Phoenix
This song reminds me of bad Jack Black dance moves which happen to be quite similar to mine.
"Homecoming" - The Teenagers
This is a bit of a naughty one.
"Teenage Crime" - Adrian Lux
My best friend and I used to sing and dance to this so much in our rooms. This was literally all we did all the time. Dance to this. In her room.
"Roll up Your Sleeves" - Meg Mac
As soon as I get home from a busy day I throw this song on and dance around in my undies in front of the mirror like a big weirdo and remember that everything is gonna be alriiiiiiight.
"Roses" - Outkast
I know every single lyric to this song, even the rap at the end. Hehe.
"The Suburbs" - Mr Little Jeans
I love Arcade Fire so much, but this version makes me wanna paint my face and dance around in a warehouse with glow sticks around my neck.
"Australia Street" - Sticky Fingers
I used to live just off Australia Street in Newtown and all of my favourite places in Newtown are mentioned in this song which makes me happy and ready to get wild.
"Crave You" - Flight Facilities
"Ignition (Remix)" - R.Kelly
Put this song on at a party and everyone will want to know you. You da king of the party now.
