iTunes Genius Playlist: BlakRoc

Here's an interesting iTunes Genius playlist that I put on while cleaning the house the other day. It's based on the BlakRoc song What You Do to Me, which inspired a pretty eclectic mix of songs! Because BlakRoc is such a clever mash-up of hip hop and The Black Keys, Genius had a little bit of a wonderful seizure while trying to figure out what genre What You Do to Me fell under.

The result was a playlist that included The Black Keys, The Gorillaz, Fiona Apple and Bob Dylan. Behold:

1. What You Do to Me - BlakRoc
2. If You See Me - The Black Keys
3. White Flag - Gorillaz
4. Fame - Citizen Cope
5. I Try - Talib Kweli
6. Bukowski - Modest Mouse
7. Myxomatosis - Radiohead
8. Extraordinary Machine - Fiona Apple
9. Burn One Down - Ben Harper
10. Circles - Soul Coughing
11. Ain't Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo) - BlakRoc
12. I'm Not the One - The Black Keys
13. New Genious (Brother) - Gorillaz
14. Delicate - Damien Rice
15. Penitentiary - Citizen Cope
16. Every Single Night - Fiona Apple
17. A Punch Up At A Wedding - Radiohead
18. Amen Omen - Ben Harper
19. Everywhere I Go - The Black Keys
20. Shelter From the Storm - Bob Dylan
21. Glitter Freeze - Gorillaz
22. The Garden - Mirah
23. Stop Me - Mark Ronson
24. Hope You're Happy - BlakRoc
25. Better Version of Me - Fiona Apple

Are you familiar with BlakRoc? If not, you should definitely check them out. It's essentially a group of artists collaborating on a music project with The Black Keys - participants include Nicole Wray, Mos Def (aka ya boy Yasiin Bey), MOP, Raekwon, Jim Jones, Q-Tip and others. The album, BlakRoc, is definitely one of best albums I've purchased in the last 5 years. You can watch tons of videos of them making the album here:

Here's the video for What You Do to Me, which is the song that made me purchase the entire album.

Check out the songs in the playlist - I hope it helps you either discover some new music or remember some of your old favs! Browse other playlists here:  iTunes Genius Playlists
