BitchTapes: We Love Whistling Songs.
I'm just going to put this out there: I am not musically talented. I picked up the saxophone as a kid because two of my childhood heroes played it (Lisa Simpson and Bill Clinton), but that was a complete waste of time. I have, however, always had a fantasy of being asked to join a band where all I do is stand at the back of the stage and whistle. I am a really good whistler! Even people I don't bother for compliments tell me that. Someday, my dream whistling band will come along. I know it. Until then, I have compiled this inspirational mixtape of songs that feature whistling. It's damn catchy. It features Kimya Dawson, Thao, and newer band Wild Child. Happy weekend.
