By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Senior Account Executive (Europe)   Just shy of the big 100, and the playlist is going strong! It continues to be updated daily — it’s hard to imagine life B.H. (Before HAJamz). I’ve come to look forward to getting that little ray of sunshine in my inbox, and I’m sure other Hoffmanites …more

HA Jamz Brings Out the Musicophiles

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Senior Account Executive (Europe)   We have some avid music lovers at The Hoffman Agency, and everyone felt pretty strongly about their picks for this week.   90.   誰能明白我 (Who understands me) — George Lam 91.   绿光 (Green Light) — 孙燕姿 (Stefanie Sun) 92.   BTS — Dynamite 93.   Everybody Wants …more

J’adore HA Jamz

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Account Executive (Europe)   It’s the “universal language”— so yes, sometimes music may give us the (false) confidence that we can belt out a tune in an unknown tongue and get it at least almost right. When I was a kid, I was sure that I was being true to the Arabic …more

Wholesome Times with HA Jamz

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Account Executive (Europe)   Whether you’re all alone in your room and looking for a song to have a good cry to (we’ve all done it) or searching for a song to dance wildly to with abandon — both worthy cathartic pursuits — the latest tunes on our playlist should give you …more

Contemplating Love and Finding Inner Peace with HA Jamz

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Account Executive (Europe)   The songs shared this past week had us turning inward with their mellow beats and reflection-inducing lyrics. 55.   Beyond — Amani 56.   Finding The Mountain God — FiftyBodyFifty 57.   Arigatou no Wa (ありがとうの輪) — Ayaka (絢香) 58.   In My Life — The Beatles 59.   I Hope That I …more

HA Jamz Rocks

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Account Executive (Europe)   One of my favorite things about music is how much you can learn about an artist through their lyrics. Sometimes, they went to prison for refusing to become an informer. Sometimes, they were a drifter hitching a ride through the American South. Sometimes, they’re just obsessed with their dog. …more

HA Jamz for the Soul

By Shereen Masoud-Jointe, Account Executive (Europe)   Since this share-a-tune project started, the daily dose of music has been a welcome little pick-me-up in my inbox. There’s nothing like some soft rock, Lo-Fi or R&B to make your soul smile, and this week’s additions fit the bill.   45.   Vienna — Billy Joel 46.   I’m Still …more
