10 Songs On Leslie Knope's Dance Party Spotify Playlist

10 Songs On Leslie Knope's Dance Party Spotify Playlist

She has the best taste in music.

Huffington Post

As I was thinking about a topic to write about this week, I found an article by a fellow Odyssey writer that listed several article topics help with writer's block. One option was "What songs are on your favorite fictional character's playlist?" which combine two things I love: fictional characters and making playlists.

One of my favorite TV shows is “Parks and Rec.” I’m sure all “Parks and Rec” fans would agree: Leslie Knope is an inspiration. She is determined and never takes no for an answer. She has no time for misogyny and is basically who I want to be when I grow up. So here’s my version of Leslie's favorite dance party playlist.

1. Run The World (Girls) - Beyonce

Because Leslie knows who really runs the world.

2. Wannabe - Spice Girls

I feel like Leslie would know every single word of this song.

3. Everything's Gonna Be Alright - Mike Mains & The Branches

Because Leslie ALWAYS has a positive attitude.

4. Boom Clap - Charli XCX

This would definitely be Leslie's car jam.

This would definitely be Leslie's car jam.

5. I Would Walk 500 Miles - Kenny And The Scots

Because Leslie always gives 100%.

6. Roar - Katy Perry

This would definitely be the Pawnee Goddesses anthem.

This would definitely be the Pawnee Goddesses anthem.

7. Brave - Sara Bareilles

I think Leslie was Sara Bareilles' inspiration for this song tbh.

8. Home - Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

I like to think Leslie and Ben have these lyrics hung up somewhere in their house.

9. Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison

What Leslie listens to when she's missing Ann.

10. Walking on Sunshine - Katrina and The Waves

Because Leslie is literal sunshine.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
