Alright monkeys, we've made it this far, we're in the middle of superday season.

If you're like me, you've been searching for a baller playlist of pump-up songs to blast in your reimbursable four-star hotel while you're ironing your shirts and slacks pre-interview. A playlist that gives you that swagga while you shave in the morning. A playlist that puts you in the "I'm about to kill it" mindset as you blast your headphones in line for coffee at Starbucks (or Blue Bottle if you're fortunate enough to be in SF) and blatantly stare at that hot hipster chick making the drinks.

Let's make it right meow: THE OFFICIAL WSO PRE-SUPERDAY PLAYLIST.

Everyone add 1-3 songs to the list, I'll start:

The White Stripes - "Conquest"
Jay-Z - "D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)"
Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette - "Hello"

    What a fucking awkward thread...

  • swagon's picture

    SB, MMB. Amazing list except for Disturbed and Poison. Thank you for including the highly underrated late 90's rap classic that is "The Block is Hot". Metallica>Megadeth (just playin) and I've always hated "Walk" but at least it's Pantera. I also love that new Kesha song...

    1) This Must Be the Place - Talking Heads (I was looking for the version played in "Wall Street" but had a tough time finding it.)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTPqPZzH-LA

    2) Poppa Was a Playa - Nas
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-BQ14aJxLQ

    3) I Wish - Skee-Lo
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zyf0YwUJcqk

    EDIT- A lot of people here have garbage taste in hip hop, and have been brainwashed by the media. For some underground hip hop masterpieces check out Binary Star. If I hear "Black and Yellow" one more time I'm gonna stick a gun in my mouth and blow my brains out, due to disgust with humanity.

    Masters of the Universe - Binary Star

    TRULY A MASTER, Wolfgang Gartner will be ten times bigger than Deadmau5. Deadmau5 has a better marketing strategy, with his stupid mouse hats..

    I think if any of you are gonna hit up a clubbing night its:
    Axwell live... Freestyle Dance House night
    Wolfgang Gartner... Standard Concert
    David Guetta... Dubai Trilogy Style Performance
    or you can be fuckin crazy and go to Lebanon for DJ MadDJam.... BRILLIANT man, I won't be surprised if he takes over the world soon.

    I remember going to an Armin van Buuren concert before taking the SATs in High-school... still did pretty well haha.

    Eye of the Tiger- Survivor
    Don't Stop Believing- Journey

    My first superday was my first on-site interview and first time-ever- in New York. I felt totally outgunned and outclassed wearing a light gray sharkskin suit and having a state school on my resume interviewing against a bunch of kids from MIT and Princeton. I felt like some amateur at a high-profile boxing match. But they hit us with technical question after technical question, and I managed to get one of the offers.
