Siren Songs



They say you can tell a lot about a person by what music they listen to. In the case of actress Kali Hawk, that axiom might just lead you to more questions. But, if you’re stuck, the New York native turned LA starlet may help you glean some insight via her Shazam app. After appearing in the comedies Couple’s Retreat and Get Him to the Greek, Hawk is getting ready to soar in the Kristen Wiig comedy Bridesmaids, which opens on May 13. But before you see that, peep some of Hawk’s favorite songs and find out why she keeps them on her iPhone rotation.

“Hello” by Martin Solveig & Dragonette

“Everytime I get in the car this song comes on. It’s like a little cosmic greeting! I love it.”

“Sail With Me” by Ima Robot

“I was in the fitting room at American Apparel in Silverlake – LA’s hipster haven – when suddenly the experience became so magical. It took me a minute to realize I should Shazam the song I was now singing along to, but I’m glad I finally did. I can’t describe the music, or even why I like it, but I bought the album. And some gold lamé stretch pants.”

“Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce

“When this song jumped out of my car stereo I was instantly taken aback. The sound was so surprising and different. I didn’t even know it was Beyonce at first! I had to Shazam it and listen to it again, and again…and again! I am now so obsessed with this song that I have the video’s release date marked on my calendar. Well played, Beyonce.”

    A lot of these songs are songs I luv, i just might not have came up with them right away. I luv songs that remind me of a time and place alas every Hov song. Rocky’s song still fires me up and Wayward song IS so much better after Guitar Hero…Great job!

    I love Beyonce and Jay. They are brilliant and talented beyond words. My 8 and 10 year daughters’ favorite song aside from Empire State of Mind is Forever Young (edited version!). It’s helped them to understand that in the digital age, life isn’t like the videos they watch, and that real life, laughing and enjoying family and friends is far more important than the latest Lady Gaga video (no offence to Lady Gaga whom we also love!). Thanks Beyonce and Jay. You both rock! p.s. So does Brigit Kelly :)
