Life as I know it… plus commentary

summer mix II

with 9 comments

It’s that time again.  Time to be thinking of the best songs of summer.  Last year’s collaborative effort resulted in a great soundtrack to the summer.  Let’s do another one… participants will get a copy.

And if you need a reminder of last year’s list, here it is:

Don’t Dream It’s Over – Sixpence None the Richer
Mexico – James Taylor
Glory of Love – Peter Cetera
Gettin Jiggy With It or Wild Wild West- Will Smith
Cruel Summer – Ace of Bass
Summer of Love – B52s
Don’t Get Around Much Aymore – Harry Connick Jr
Summertime – Fantasia Barrino
Summer Wind – Frank Sinatra
One Love – Bob Marley
Boys of Summer – The Ataris
Summer of 69 – Bryan Adams
Danke Schoen – Wayne Newton
Jump. Jive & Wail – Brian Setzer
La Isla Bonita – Madonna
Big Yellow Taxi – Counting Crows
Steve McQueen – Sheryl Crow
I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing and Sweet Emotion- Aerosmith
Harder to Breathe – Maroon 5

  1. Don’t know how summery it is, but i really want my own copy of “The Humpty Dance.” It’s not not summery.

    People say “Yo Humpty, you’re really funny looking.”
    That’s alright cause I get things cooking…

  2. I can already tell this mix is gonna have an old school feel to it. Kyle is so old school.

  3. I didn’t like this song in high school, but now it’s a nostalgic song from the past. I was fixed on “dance” name songs from Kyle’s post.

    Remember — S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y

    Safety, dance!

    We can dance if we want to
    We can leave your friends behind
    ‘Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance
    Well they’re no friends of mine…

  4. As great as old school is, we gotta go with some current stuff. Even though Paris Hilton is touting her first single as “the theme of this summer,” Arnold, I know you, and I know that you have better sense than that.

    I would, however, have two requests for this mix. The first would be “Over My Head” by The Fray. The second would be “Love and Memories” by O.A.R. Those songs are good times.

  7. Speaking of commies, what about something from “The Best of Karl Marx.” Didn’t he write “Right Here Waiting?”

    “Wherever you go…whatever you do…
    I will be
    waiting for you.”

  8. That’s Richard Marx… and also a pun.

  9. What about something from Sting? Didn’t he have that album “Ten Summer-ner’s Tales”?
