Long Time No Tape

It has been a while since we have done a mix tape.  So to start to get myself back in the swing of things I figured we could start with a new mixtape.  The past week I was in sunny Key West, FL soaking in the rays.  It was 80 degrees down there and as you can imagine it was a  wonderful escape from the freezing cold of Maine.  So since my new wife and I are now back in the cold north and many of you are still a few months away from summer I think it is time to make a summer mix tape as away of getting our minds out of the winter blues.

So what song reminds you of summer and hot weather?  What songs do you bring with you to the beach?  What song do you listen to in your car with the windows down and your system up?

As always you can add songs though Spotify or just by posting a comment to this post.  You DO NOT need spotify to add a song!!! It is just a nifty way of us listening to the mix we make.  2-3 song are permitted as usual.

The first song I am going to add is Santeria by Sublime.  This is a song (and album) that reminds me of nothing but hot weather and cold beers.  When the warm weather finally makes and appearance here in Maine I automatically put this one on.

The second song I’m going to add is We Are Young by Fun. featuring Janelle Monae.  This album just came out, but I first heard this song while listening to Pirate radio in the Keys, so I will forever associate this upbeat song with the sun.

The last song I’ll add will actually be for my new wife.  I know that she loves Will Smith (much to my dismay!) and I know she loves this song.  If there is any song by D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince I would like it might be this one.  It is called Summertime. Enjoy!
