We are so excited to share our Record Hospital Hot 100 Orgy® with you! The songs that we’ve chosen are definitely not as popular as the songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 playlists, which is exactly why we decided to highlight them here. When we were on campus, Mika and Megan (the Music Directors for the Record Hospital) curated a Top 20 playlist — a collection of new releases and new additions to our physical Record Hospital library — and played it over the air every Monday from 10-11pm. Since we weren’t able to continue programming the Top 20, we decided to follow through on its mission by creating the Record Hospital Hot 100 Orgy®.
If, at the end of the day, music is all about love, then there’s certainly a lot of self love to be explored. And, well, quarantine isn’t exactly hurting the prevalence of … dialing the rotary phone? (bet you’ve never even heard of that one). Its current relevance made us want to dig a little deeper into the ways that musicians have talked about or around the often-taboo issue, while ultimately producing a playlist that reflects our own sex-positivity.
