Summer Soundtrack

August 5, 2013

I can’t stop listening to this SummerMash 13 by DJ Earworm. Have you heard it?

It pulls together some of my favorites of the summer…and some that I’ve heard waaay to much. But that’s the thing about summer music. It’s typically as upbeat as it is overplayed. And decades later, every time I hear any of these tunes…from “Everybody Wants To Rule the World” to “Gin and Juice” to “Call Me, Maybe” I’m transported back to the summer it was on heavy rotation. I love DJ Earworm’s selection…and here are a few of my own for this August…
