Friday Mix Tape: Six Summer Songs

This weekend marks the moment we’ve been waiting for since we said goodbye to summer last year, as we officially say hello to Summer ’09 (or the Summer Of Jam as we’re calling it around these parts). With a nice long weekend ahead, we know you’re probably just counting down the minutes till you can go and enjoy it. With that in mind, this week’s mix tape is dedicated to the summer, literally with six tasty tunes with the word summer in the title, so sit back and relax and let’s get you in the right frame of mind…

We kick things off with singer-songwriter Josh Rouse ode to the warmer months Summertime from his Subtitulo album. Next up, we’ve got some sunny psychedelic music, first up is Animal Collective with Summer Clothes from what may be a lot of people’s album of the year Merriweather Post Pavilion (though I’m not convinced), and Yeasayer with the sitar infused Wait For Summer off of last year’s All Hour Cymbals. From there we’ve got the recently reformed Jane’s Addiction with Summertime Rolls from their 1988 classic Nothing’s Shocking. Then we’ve got It’s Summertime from The Flaming Lips mainstream breakthrough album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. Finally, we close things out with The Boss’ ode to maybe my favorite part of the soaring temperatures to come – Girls In Their Summer Clothes – from his Magic album. Enjoy the weekend!

  1. The Imeem mix has Janes’ Classic Girl instead of Summertime Rolls. Both are great anyway… Great mix too.
