The Verge Playlist: Spring cleaning jams


Yes, that's my favorite shirt. Yes, it's full of holes

It's not all fun and games, spring cleaning. My favorite t-shirt is now so full of holes that I strongly suspect I am going to have to throw it out — seriously, there are four holes in the left armpit alone. Oh, and did I mention I've worn the fabric so thin it's pretty much see-through now? It's not even really a functional shirt anymore, but I don't know if I have the heart to trash it. That's why I created a pump-up playlist to help me clear the debris. I'm gonna need it, and you might too.

I lean on goofy pop music for this task, of course. From the up-and-coming Years & Years to hipster elder statesman Giorgio Moroder, this playlist is engineered to help you power through the really difficult decisions, like whether or not you want to tackle the dust bunnies under the bed.
