Social network playlist (part 1)

If you have been following this blog, then you know that we have been using the movie “The Social Network” (and the book “Accidental Billionaires” on which the film is based) to teach our business law course. What you may not be aware of, however, is our “Social Network” music playlist: the songs we play at the beginning of each lecture (while we are setting up our slides and surveys) to set the tone for that class. So, as we approach the halfway point of this spring semester, here is our playlist thus far:

Class #1: Atticus Ross & Trent Reznor, “Hand covers bruise” (social network theme song)

Class #2: 50 Cent, “In da club” (instrumental) (#1 song of 2003, i.e. the year the opening of the movie is set)

Class #3: Beyoncé featuring Sean Paul, “Baby boy” (#1 song of November 2003, i.e. during the Facemash fiasco)

Class #4: Drake, “Back to back” (instrumental) (because in this class we consider the legal consequences of Mark’s back-to-back promises, first with the Winklevoss twins, then with Eduardo)

Class #5: Drake, “Fake love” (instrumental) (because we discuss the law of fraud in this class)

Class #6: Usher, “Yeah!” (instrumental) (#1 song of February 2004, the month Zuckerberg launched “thefacebook”)

Happy Valentine’s Day, Sydjia!
