Post image for Free People’s Breaking Up Playlist!

Today I bring you the second of our trio of Valentine’s Day playlists: the Breaking Up Playlist! Sad as it is, the fact of the matter is that sometimes love stinks, and sometimes we dump or get dumped. So, we asked everyone at Free People to tell us their favorite breaking up songs, and have compiled them into this playlist for you! Don’t miss our Falling in Love playlist from earlier this week, also!

?, of ? and the Mysterians, was actually Rudy Rodriguez of Bay City, Michigan, a classmate of one of the FP Girls' uncle. For the record.

skeleton boy


I really enjoyed this music video by Friendly Fires for their song Skeleton Boy, which is going to be on their new album coming out in a few weeks. It’s a happy little song and I love the snowy stuff floating all around and turning them into skeletons! There’s a higher quality version on YouTube if you click through, also.

it reminds me of the video projected onto the lobby floor of the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville, one of the coolest hotels around.

cloudy


I recently found this video of Simon & Garfunkel’s Cloudy on YouTube. I just love it, it’s so relaxing and mellow! I think it’s a clip from an old TV show, rather than a music video… I never had seen it before! Enjoy!

Oh my goodness I *love* this song. Perfect Sunday morning music.

animal collective

This picture completely trips me out! Focus on one spot in the picture and it will stop moving all around. It’s the cover from Animal Collective’s newest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Word is that this album is doing extremely well, which rocks, cause I love Animal Collective! Want to hear a song off the album? Go here to listen to the song My Girls.

oh my goodness, i am absolutely obsessed with this album. its heartbreakingly good. my girls makes me wanna shake it. and then the lyrics make my heart melt. its too good for words. i want to go to their show in LA on Friday the 23rd, everyone i know and love is going. but it is sold out and the only tickets i can find are going for $100. poor sad college student... im so sad. they are my favorite band!

You might remember this entry we did about Victorian paper masks one of our designers brought back from the Netherlands. Check out this lip dub video using similar masks from fredasterical! Why didn’t we think of this?

See more pics of our design team in those silly masks.

Alissa, one of our wovens designers, showed me this cover of the Miley Cyrus song See You Again by The Mae Shi, and I am so addicted now! The Mae Shi‘s version is so catchy! The video is really funny too – enjoy!

ACK! I am hooked. I listened to this like 10 times today already!

super surfer girls


This video makes me want the beach! I loooove all of the vintage footage and beach dancing chicks. Also love the fashion elements, the heels worn in the ocean, the suspenders with the bikini. Plus the hand drawings, this video has it all.
from Chicks on Speed. JC Report did a little analysis of the evolution of the band, if you’re interested…

pruittfpgirl -Jan 05, 2009, 3:01PM
i can't believe those girls who were water skiing on one leg! with the other holding the handles! crazy!

Fun video, I like the vintage bathing suits!

Meredith, Free People’s Allocator (she helps figure out how many of which styles go to what stores…) and music lover wants to share this Beck video with you! Here’s a little note from Meredith:
I found the video through the Creative Review blog, which I think is an amazing resource for keeping up to date on what is going on in the design and advertising world.
Beck has made a number of really fun videos for his latest album, Modern Guilt, one of which (Gamma Ray) features uber-fashionista Chloe Sevigny. Having seen this one though I think my relatives should all be expecting creepy, homemade heads of “David Beckhand”, “Short, Beck and Sides” and “Beck to the Future” as gifts this year; I’ve been inspired!
