Listen Up: Leilani Bishop’s “New Year, Old Tunes” Playlist


It’s hard to not feel your inner DJ surfacing when you flip through the vast offering of vinyl at Melet Mercantile, a New York–based warehouse of wonders (pictured above). We recently spent an afternoon there with fragrance designer and Melet regular Leilani Bishop, and asked her to curate a playlist to help us ring in the new year. Here, her favorite tunes for toasting 2014 (all have been around for at least 21 years—we checked IDs). Cheers!

2. “I Get Lifted,” KC and the Sunshine Band

3. “I Wanna Be Where You Are,” Michael Jackson

4. “Tell Me Something Good,” Rufus & Chaka Khan

5. “Don’t Look Any Further,” Dennis Edwards
