The Plymouth Playlist November 2018

By Nick Prescott and Mason Masotta
On November 2, 2018

Well, it’s November, and that means that it’s time for a playlist to sum up the month to come. Last month was filled with pirates and spooks, and it’s looking like November is shaping up to be an interesting one, no matter how you slice it. 

Just like last time, we are selecting ONE student-submitted song for consideration in December’s playlist. Send your choice mtm1027@plymouth.edualong with a short summary of why you chose this song. 

The Plymouth playlist will appear in the first issue of every month right here in the A&E section. Without further ado, here are our seven picks for November 2018.


“Don’t Stop Me Now” - Queen 

Because Bohemian Rhapsody (the movie) just released and “Bohemian Rhapsody” (the song) is too predictable a choice to put into the playlist, I decided to go with another Queen classic: “Don’t Stop Me Now.” Now, it goes without saying that this song is up there on the list of Queen’s greatest hits, but this song didn’t make it onto the playlist for just that. The anniversary of Freddie Mercury's death is fast approaching- it’s on November 24th. So let’s celebrate his memory and the release of what is (hopefully) a big hit movie with this classic. 


“I Only Wanna Talk To You” - The Maine

Autumn came on very quickly and it seems that winter’s entered the fray a bit early for our liking. Now maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t feel quite right to listen to summertime beats in the fall and winter months. Since fall has set on in a hurry, it’s time to hang up some of our old summer songs and turn up some more mellow tunes. This track isn’t quite all the way in the winter feels, so it’s a good way to bridge the gap from having fun in the warmth to being sad that classes aren’t canceled even when there’s a foot of snow on the roads. So kick back, relax, and give it a listen to prepare to be freezing. 


“UGH!” - The 1975

Midterms are coming up and one way or another, Democrats or Republicans will take back or keep the senate, house, and gubernatorial seats. Regardless of how you intend to vote, (and I do recommend you get involved and vote) there’s a good chance we’ll be saying “ugh” when the results come back. So go out, get educated on who your candidates are, and go VOTE. 


“Another Brick in the Wall” - Pink Floyd

Yeah, Res Life controversy has everyone in a rebellious mood lately. With such obvious lack of concern for student body opinions from the top of the university, it’s time to start blasting some Pink Floyd. All of these random emails changing school policies is only going to continue to make people feel frustrated with “the system.” We’re not cogs in the machine, man! And we’re all sick of just being bricks in the wall.


“Blackstar” - David Bowie

A legend passed away three years ago this month who went by many names. At times he was the space man Ziggy Stardust, at others he was the Pale Thin Duke, but David Bowie will go down in history as one of the greatest. Only days before his passing, he released a final album as a solemn goodbye to fans titled Blackstar. I would honestly recommend giving all of his work a listen once again, but especially the albums titular song “Blackstar.” It is haunting, fun, weird, and entirely Bowie. 


“Rain” - Breaking Benjamin

Everything is grey and gloomy outside lately, so let’s get some emo-grunge on this list too. This song has a double meaning especially this month. First, it’s raining way too much. Second, the lousy weather is bringing down people’s mood at a staggering rate. So, when one hears the lyrics “rain, rain, go away” it’s easy to see that it’s both the weather and bad moods that need to go away. Here’s hoping for a more positive winter as fall starts to wrap up. 


“We Are the Champions” - Queen

As stated earlier, Bohemian Rhapsody will be released November 2nd so we have to celebrate Queen. Just as importantly, the Red Sox WON!!! With a dominant final game performance by David Price and Mookie Bets, yet another championship comes home to Boston and New England continues to be home to champions.
