Sounds of the Summer
After working all summer last year doing our network upgrade, I've carried over some holiday and am taking a month off over summer:cool:
Sooo, off touring with the Mrs to France and wherever takes our fancy next week for 4 weeks, have an empty 32Gb SD card which fits into the car stereo and need to fill it with music.
Not going to say what music I like, want to broaden the horizons and find our Sounds of the Summer 2011, so over to you lot:rockon:
you're going to be doing a lot of driving, so add some The Who and Deep Purple to that...
DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.....Summertime!
The only track you need to put you in a sunny mood!
"School's out, and there's a sort of a buzz"
Ring any bells??? ;)
"See America Right" by The Mountain Goats
"Dancing with St Peter" by $ign of Four
"Overcome" by Better Than Ezra
"Is It Like Today" World Party
Don Henly - Boys of Summer
Roger Sanches - Another Chance
Groove Amada - At The River
Prince Buster - Al Capone
Supergrass - Alright
Hot Feet - Fire Fly
And how could I forget "Lines in the Suit" by Spoon? It is both summery and drivingy, so it's a winner.
Shaggy - In The Summertime?
Thanks all, as well as individual tracks, are there any albums to be recommended? I've got a serious amount of driving to do ;-)
You want varied? Here ya go
Cast - All Change
Kula Shaker - Pilgrim's progress
The Dead Weather - both albums http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0YI0UUazkU
Gui Boratto's essential mix from around 2009.
Renaissance The Masters 11 - Satoshi Tomiie -- well infact all of the masters collection.
Marvin Gaye - What's going on
Stevie Wonder - Songs in the key of life & Conversations peace & really way out Journey through the secret life of plants
You need a bit of daft punk - that is seriously good sunny driving music. Also, any Muse album, any Foo Fighters album, any Biffy Clyro album, and any Queens of the Stone Age album should be a good start.
Rancid - Life Wont Wait, lots of reggae/ska influenced punk
"..and out come the wolves" surely?
