SUMMER MUSIC PLAYLIST
Hey guys! Since summer is really getting into full swing (and by that I mean that 90 degrees is now the normal temperature for my days), I felt it only proper to share with you my growing playlist of “Summer Music“… also known as the songs I listen to 50 million times a day… at least. So on to the music!
As of yesterday I have probably played Symphonies by Dan Black maybe 100 times. I love the song, and the music video is really great! Not to mention, Dan has a really cool style. He tends to wear his white blazer jacket in all of his music videos. I like and look forward to discovering more music from this guy. It’s good for fairly chill “Waking up on a summer morning” music.
Next up- The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. Their songs Around the Bend and Lady Jesus are my two favories from them. They seem… interesting… as a band, but I kinda dig it.
I REALLY love their album cover. It seems like something I would see in my dad’s vinal collection from the ’70s… I have no idea about the name of it though; Fruit. What does it mean?

Keeping in line with the semi-space theme, The Orion Experience is another band I’m really loving right now. Their song Cult of Dionysus has become my theme song and Queen of White Lies, and Obsessed With You are also gems on their album… but honestly, their album is one of those that you can play from beginning to end without ever wanting to skip past a song.
(See what I mean? Basically the same color scheme as The Asteroids Galaxy Tour)

Probably the oldest of the music talked about in this post, I still love it and think it is perfect for lounging by the pool or partying at the beach; Passion Pit – Sleepyhead love it!
Perhaps an unlikely summer song- Shiny Toy Guns cover of Major Tom. Love it, mean it, have been listening to it for a couple months now (ever since I first heard it on that car commercial). Still not tired of it!

Love this picture, because it’s right when she hits her “note”… when you hear the song you’ll know what I mean 🙂
Finally, it wouldn’t be summer without a little Katy Perry. I mean, come on, who isn’t loving California Gurls? If you’re like me, you probably weren’t crazy about it the first time you heard it, but now you can’t get enough of it. If you haven’t heard the song (living under a rock normally is a good reason) then flip on the radio, or check out the link and prepare to find your summer jam!
