Songs to Listen to in the Summer

Here in Baltimore, after days of obnoxiously cold weather in May, it’s finally beginning to feel like late spring/early summer.  As such, I decided to make a playlist on my Ipod of “summer songs”.  Not all of these songs are about summer, but I was looking more for a feel here.  The idea was to start out  with more up-tempo, and then end up with songs that conjure up feelings of 100% humidity and you’re exahusted.  Here’s what I came up with:

Walt Whitman’s Niece – Billy Bragg & Wilco

Chain Gang (Live) – Sam Cooke

Spirit in the Night – Bruce Springsteen

Everyday People – Sly & the Family Stone

Heat Wave – Martha Reeves and the Vandellas

Where Did Our Love Go? – The Supremes

Pressure Drop – Toots and the Maytals

Piece of My Heart – Big Brother and the Holding Company

Taper Jean Girl – Kings of Leon

Dead Flowers – The Rolling Stones

The Weight – The Band

Sweet Illusions – Ryan Adams & the Cardinals

TB Sheets – Van Morrison

What are yours?
