Playlist Thursday: Sounds of Summer

21 Jun

It’s Thursday again already! While I’m out getting my run on early in order to avoid the 100 degree temps we’re expecting, I present you with yet another episode of Playlist Thursday.

This time we’re talking Sounds of Summer – after all, yesterday was the first day of summer!

How it works (in case you’re new here, or forgetful LOL)

Three songs, one post:

Something Old: These will be songs that are at least 5 years old. I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.
Something Current: These will be songs that have been released within the past year. I know, but you have to give me some leeway here.
Something to Consider: These will be songs that are not typically heard on the radio and may be by artists you’ve never heard of or considered running to. This is the wild card category, can be old or current.

Something Old:

Artist: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince

Song: Summertime

Oh yes, I went there. I so went there. I was also ten when this song came out – really?

Fave Quote: “Summer, summer, summertime, Time to sit back and unwind” That’s what summer’s about, isn’t it?!

Something Current:

Artist: Calvin Harris

Song: Let’s Go

Not necessarily a summer themed song, but this song is blowing up right now, and I’m feeling it for a theme song at this very moment.

Fave Quote: “It’s not about what you’ve done, It’s about what you doing, It’s all about where you going, No matter where you’ve been.”

Something to Consider:

Artist: The Ataris

Song: The Boys of Summer

Yes, this is a remake of the Don Henley song, but it kicks ass. They add enough of a punk influence to modernize it and keep your moving!

Fave Quote: “A little voice Inside my head said, "Don’t look back. You can never look back." Exactly.

What songs are you loving for summer?!
