Retail Therapy: Music to Inspire Your Black Friday Shopping


Are you hitting the stores tomorrow to partake in a bit of Black Friday madness and early holiday shopping? Our stylish friends at Marc Jacobs, Free People, Modcloth, and White Girl Problems have handcrafted these playlists to help inspire your retail adventures and survive Black Friday with your sanity intact.

Marc Jacobs knows how to kick off your retail efforts with this “imPULSE Buy Black Friday Playlist.” Let the music play and embrace the frenzy with cash-spending tunes from funky fellows like Disclosure, Booka Shade, Toro Y Moi, and araabMUZIK. Dance, feel good, and just throw it in the bag!

Free People have put together a “Stay Zen” playlist, perfect to put on when the madness of Black Friday feels like just a little bit too much. Listen to the soothing sounds of acts like Rhye, Washed Out, and Belle and Sebastian to find yourself calm and collected amidst the chaos.

Gloria Gaynor’s enduring disco anthem inspires the title of Modcloth’s playlist, “I Will Survive Black Friday.” The retro clothing e-tailer also serves up focused inspiration via classics like ABBA’s “Super Trouper,” Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.”

Last (but never least!) fashion blogger Babe Walker contributes a sassy White Girl Problems take on Black Friday with her aptly titled playlist, “I'd Like This More If It Wasn't On Sale.” Tracks from Cut Copy, Sky Ferreira, The Smiths and Cults will fuel your shopping excursions and fashion obsessions.

Have fun, keep calm, and shop on!
