Hot Summer Sun – 2010 Music Playlist for Summer

Here it is, my Summer 2010 playlist of summertime goodness.

Disclaimer: some of you may not like all of these songs.  Its definitely more edgy and less pop than normal for me. But to me, these are roll down the windows, let your hair fly and sing at the top of your lungs songs that I am really digging at the moment. The music is good.  So check it.

You cant get all this from Itunes, I have a couple of awesome CDs that I enjoy that are not available on Itunes (particularly 99X Live X 5, Shimmer And Shine which is a compilation of live cuts from a radio station in Atlanta I got back in 1999).  So if you want something you cant find on Itunes let me know and we can figure something out for you.

Side Note:  I started to type out the album names and I got tired of doing that so if you want album names use google or Itunes.  The 99X Live X CD is not available anywhere so if you want to sample those you’ll have to get them from me.

While I HEART everything on this list, I bolded my special favorites so that if the list is too long for you should at LEAST sample the bold ones.

Here is the list:

    I was looking for some summer music to add to my already massive collection and came across this page. First of all, any music list that features ANY Monkees music (you included 3) is already tops with me. Second, I’m a huge fan of most of the songs listed, and those that I am unfamiliar with I will definitely try out, because obviously you have excellent taste. And Third, well there is no third other than I dig your taste in music and appreciate the song choices.
