Ticketbud Tracks: Erick Del Cid

Ticketbud’s Erick Del Cid is a Digital Marketing Specialist. Erick shares his playlist of songs that he likes to listen to on a laid back night out at a house party.
When I’m not in the mood to go bar hoping, I personally prefer a small get together with good drinks and good people. This is my track list for a chill relaxed get together, if you like it great, if you don’t, I’m Sorry?
  1. Pursuit of Happiness; Kid Cudi To Start off the night I’ll go with one of my all time favorites. Whichever version you choose to play this is a great song to get the night kicked off; Steve Aoki’s version is my favorite.
  2. Poetic Justice; Kendrick Lamar Ft. Drake This was one of the most anticipated tracks from Kendrick’s album where he pairs up with Drake with a chill beat with some samples great song to set the mood.
  3. The Zone; The Weeknd Ft. Drake The Weeknd is no longer just Drake’s protege. The Toronto based artist’s music is unlike any other, don’t take my word for it listen to it.  He recently announced a partnership with Universal Republic Records and released  his debut album Triology.
  4. On My Own; Kirko Bangz Kirko Bangz is my favorite Texas rapper and having grown up in the heart of the Lone-star state Texas rap will always have a place in my iPod. This song is really laid back and kinda just flows it’s a nice little song to listen to despite the explicit language.
  5. Ms. Jackson; Outkast “Yeah this one right here goes out to all the baby’s mamas, mamas Mamas, mamas, baby mamas, mamas” I think that’s all I have to say. A classic.
  6. All of the Lights; Kanye West I can’t have a playlist with at least one Kanye West song, no seriously I legally have to have Kanye West in all my playlist.
  7. Frontin; Pharrell Ft Jay Z Don’t really know what to say about this song other than I love it and every time it comes on I sing along!
  8. Chicken Fried; Zac Brown Band No this isn’t a request for some food even though at this point of the night I could probably go for some. “You know I like my chicken fried, A cold beer on a Friday night, A pair of jeans that fit just right, And the radio up”
  9. Promises; Skrillex & Nero Remix This Dubstep song is one of the ones that made it to mainstream pop. Once the party is starting to pick up a bit this is a great song to get people going.
  10. Friends In Low Places; Garth Brooks I’m not one to promote drinking one’s troubles away but hey whatever works! I challenge you to avoid signing along.
  11. Wagon Wheel; Old Crow Medicine Show No this isn’t American Idol so just sing along chances are you will sound awful but by now we`re all a bit drunk and we really don’t care. Great song by the way.
  12. Just A Friend; Biz Markie By now you have probably forgotten all then words or never knew them to begin with, but it really doesn’t  matter  because chances are most everyone else doesn’t either. On a side not I feel sorry that Biz had to walk in on his girl like that, he seems like such a nice guy.
  13. Don’t Stop Believing; Journey It’s on everything from Glee to Rock Band, and we all know the chorus even if it is on at the end so sing your little heart out!
  14. El Rey; Vicente Fernandez without fail somebody by now has  brought out a bottle of tequila shots have been poured and limes sliced. Now is the time to put on this classic. Trust me, you won’t know the words and even if you did you have forgotten them by now but that will not stop anyone at this party from singing along with all their might. A few tears might fall but that is alright it comes with the song.
