Rother + Valz
A person’s taste in music can say a lot about their personality. In order for students to better understand our staff, teachers are sharing playlists of their creation to allow the student body a glimpse into who they are outside of the classroom.
George Rother — History Department
Playlist Prompt: Imagine the city of Tumwater is burying a time capsule and have asked you to create a playlist that defines your generation for them to include. Which ten songs would you use?
- “Gimme Shelter” (The Rolling Stones)
- “Purple Haze” (Jimi Hendrix)
- “For What It’s Worth” (Buffalo Springfield)
- “White Rabbit” (Jefferson Airplane)
- “The Thrill is Gone” (B.B. King)

Henry Valz — Chemistry
Playlist Prompt: Imagine you are stranded on a deserted island with only some kind of music-playing device, a stereo system, and a playlist of your creation. What ten songs would you choose to listen to until you are rescued?
- “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant” (Billy Joel)
- “One” (Metallica)
- “Jesus of Suburbia” (Green Day)

Mr. Valz would like to point out that to power a stereo system on a deserted island, he would “need about a 500W Solar Panel System”.
