Summer's Here -- Bring on the Tunes!

Summer has begun (for most of us) and even if you're not on break yet, it is still prime-time to make the perfect mix CD! I've blogged about creating love mixes before, but summer-themed CDs are the best for cruising around or lounging in the backyard on warm days and nights and can set the tone for a grand old time.

I don't think your idea and my idea of good road trip mixes could be any farther apart

Jessi Haish said...

Haha sir Deiss, this is my barbecuing and driving down Main Street at night mix. But I would like to see that road trip mix list of yours...

Hauptmann Deiss said...

I've got like 10 different mixes so I'll just be general. It would most definitely have some Zeppelin, rolling stones, deep purple, anthrax, metallica, incubus and black stone cherry. Then there would be some other bands sprinkled in depending on who I would want to listen to

Jessi Haish said...

I do like the first half of that list.... haha :)

Melissa Blake said...

Hannah Mae said...

Summertime by Kenny Chesney is one of my favorites for summer too!!

I Love You More Than... said...

Wow I would love one of your mixes!
We have such similar taste in music it's unbelievable!

Summer Girls brings back so many memories!!! The only other song I could think to add is The Boys of Summer - Don Henley

CFM said...

... oh and Some Kinda Wonderful - Sky :)

Jessi Haish said...

Great picks!

I liked quite a few of those posted on your list. Particularly that from Grease. John Travolta...Olivia Newton-John. Classic. (:
One to add:
Summer of '98--The Secret Handshake.
Addictive to positively frightening proportions.
