It’s that time when love is traveling through the atmosphere… through sound waves…from the stereo, to our ears. Does anything other than sweet songs even exist? No matter, here are the top love songs we’d swoon to be serenaded to.

Friday, January 18, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Stereo Mono
As if you needed any more black-and-white inspiration, here are some classic music videos shot in oh-so-nostalgic monochrome. There are no shades of grey about our feelings for stark contrast, we absolutely love it.
“Rhythm Nation” by Janet Jackson
“In Bloom” by Nirvana
“Back To Black” by Amy Winehouse
“Wonderwall” by Oasis
“To Be With You” by Mr. Big

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Neon Pop

“The Boys” by Nicki Minaj & Cassie
“Groove Is In The Heart” by Deee-Lite
“Put It Down” by Brandy feat. Chris Brown

“Who’s That Chick?” by David Guetta feat. Rihanna
Thursday, December 27, 2012 Studio Soundtracks: Best Of 2012
All throughout the year here in the Nasty Gal studio we danced, we laughed, we dropped it down low… Here are our ultimate songs for 2012—enjoy!
“Wavvy” by Mykki Blanco
Perhaps one of the most interesting videos we were into this year. Beyond that, “Wavvy” has a beat that’s made for a nitty gritty night on a dance-floor.
“Baby’s On Fire” by Die Antwoord
Oh hell nah! We got down in the desert with model Anja Konstantinova for our “Wild Child” lookbook like it was 1999. Definitely an anthem during the summer for our entire team.
“Only In My Dreams” by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti
Hands down, Ariel Pink’s “Mature Themes” was one of the best records released this year! Check out this video for “Only In My Dreams,” featuring awesome cameos from Geneva Jacuzzi and the girls of Puro Instinct.
“Everything Is Embarrassing” by Sky Ferreira
With a little help from Blood Orange, Sky Ferreira turned up on this list with her coy yet catchy love song. Warning: we’re currently addicted.
IO Echo – “When The Lillies Die”
2012 wouldn’t have been as pleasant to the ears if it weren’t for our friends IO Echo. This is one of the more unique tracks to come out of 2012, and one of the better shows we rocked out at this year.
“Genesis” by Grimes
Grimes and friends definitely gave us a whole lot of style inspiration this year. She also gave us some awesome videos and some major audio candy this year as well.
“Pyramids” by Frank Ocean
It would’ve been hard not to hear our crew shout out lines from this song all year. For whatever reason “working at the pyramids tonight” just stuck, and was a staple on our road trips to Vegas and through the red sands.
“Swimming Pools” by Kendrick Lamar
This was a game changer. We listened to this track nonstop shortly before it became a house party staple. Still my number one request when I’m out with friends.
“Diamonds” by Rihanna
I don’t think you can talk about 2012 and not talk about Rihanna in some way. “Diamonds” was a staple while shooting our New Year’s lookbook because like it or not, it just happened to come on the radio ten times…. Yeah, we’re not complaining.
