Hello, readers of What’s Up Ya Sieve!! We are Krista, Kristen, and Stacey from This Is Our Jam, fellow lovers of the great sport of hockey and the beautiful players that grace the ice. We are so excited to bring you a playlist inspired by the foxiest of Foxy Friday gentlemen. This playlist would be great for a workout mix (just imagine any of the guys mentioned across the gym for extra motivation) or as a pick-me-up if you’re feeling a little (read: VERY) sad about the lockout. And for the record — we close out the playlist with our three favorites. Happy listening!
Listen while you read: WUYS Foxy Fridays: The Playlist
“Lonely Boy” – The Black Keys
Wanted: A team for Jason Arnott, Grandpa Mike Knuble and other NHL journeymen still unsigned, so they don’t have to be lonely no more.
He’s got another 1000 games in him.
“It Takes Two” – Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock
What’s better than one attractive hockey player? A whole family of attractive hockey players. (Tom and Taylor Pyatt, we’re looking at you.)
We grew up next door to the wrong boys.
“I’m a Lion King” – djDoYOU
A fitting ditty for Jonathan Quick because of his team and probable intimately familiar with Disney movies because of scene-stealingly his adorable daughter.
“For The Longest Time” – Billy Joel
It’s a really good thing Zach Parise and Ryan Suter have one of the NHL’s best bromances, because they’ll be attached at the hip for the rest of hockey eternity.
“I have been a fool for lesser things…”
“Youth Knows No Pain” – Lykke Li
We bet that Intern Jeff Skinner is amped for an injury-free season, after missing 16 games last year with a concussion. (Side note, Chuck and Pants — if he starts getting too sassy, send him over to TIOJ. We’re always looking for interns.)
Aw Jeff we’d never send you(r arms) away.
“Shots” – LMFAO
Patrick Kane, Resident NHL Partier. We assume he’s sorry for party rocking.
All LMFAO song apply to Kaner.
“My Body” – Young the Giant
While we are decidedly anti-Penguin (sorry Pants), we have such an admiration for the hair and beard of Kris Letang (much like we do for all of the boys in Young the Giant). Dustin Penner’s is pretty high up there too.
“Blackout (Mike Posner Remix)” – The Knocks
One of our favorite facts about Brian Boyle is that he refused to throw a punch in a fight during last season’s playoffs. We don’t understand why. He’s 6’7”.
“Dog Days are Over” – Florence + the Machine
Now that his concussion and wrist problems are (hopefully) behind him, imagine with Gingeroux could do this season.
Florence would be a Flyer – all those gingers sticking together.
“Voulez-Vous/The Killing Time” – ABBA vs. Echo and the Bunnymen
Some timeless Swedish standbys: IKEA, meatballs, ABBA, and Nicklas Lidstrom. And with Lidstrom’s retirement, he passes the Swedish guard (and love of ABBA) on to Baby-Cap Filip Forsberg.
We’re old enough that he makes us think of ABBA’s “Does Your Mother Know?”
“Tonight I’m ‘Loving’ You” – Enrique Iglesias
Paul Bissonnette is one of our favorite NHLers to follow on Twitter. His tweets range from showcasing his actually really good taste in music to his rather crass life musings, which cement his status as one of the more “classy” gentlemen in the NHL. (DISCLAIMER: we chose to include the radio-appropriate version of this Enrique song because the original offends our delicate sensibilities. That being said, we think that it’s rather fitting for BizNasty.)
If he had a type then maybe it would be you.
“One More Night” – Maroon 5
Three of our favorite faces with beautiful cheekbones: Adam Henrique, Henrik Lundqvist, and Adam Levine.
Okay, maybe two nights.
“Black & Blue” – Miike Snow
Our favorite Swede had a rough year with concussions and even a suspension, but nothing keeps him from coming back. Shall we get into it again, Nicky Backstrom?
Nicky prefers his Mikes with one I in their names.
“Champion” – Kanye West
He doesn’t even break a sweat.
“Fly Me to the Moon” – Frank Sinatra
Ol’ Blue Eyes has nothing on Brooks Laich’s piercing icy baby blues.

BONUS: “Moneygrabber” – Fitz and the Tantrums
HEY OWNERS — quit being moneygrabbers and let us have our hockey season. Please?
