Turn it up for the Capital of Cool

Goodnight Napier. See you in the morning Wellington!

Tomorrow we hit the road for our Wellington weekend! Wellington is what Kiwis call "The Capitol of Cool," so Joe and I are taking a 4-day trip down to see, taste, tour, and shop our way around the city.

And to get me in the mood for the 3-hour drive, I've put together a playlist of some jams from the 80s, 90s and today. (Some of them are so bad, they're good.) I haven't found more than about 3 working radio stations since I've been in New Zealand, and most just play a bit of everything. I've been told that in some respects New Zealand is a little behind the times, but these stations are bringing me back to my elementary school days with a little "Take That" and "Tracy Chapman," and I am not complaining. That's what's inspired this Spotify playlist (along with Paul Rudd's lip-sync off with Jimmy Fallon if anyone caught that). Enjoy! http://spoti.fi/1ondMYG

Stay tuned for adventures from Wellington!
