The Sound Of Summer (mergified)

Recommended Posts

In association with the Taste of Summer thread, we need to find the ultimate album or playlist of summer music. The songs in question must have some sort of property that make them acceptable to play while you're, say, having a barbeque in the backyard or driving on a sunny day in a convertible with some hot chick in the passenger seat (note: 4-seater convertibles don't count).


Firstly, the albums begin and end with the following:


-Axis: Bold as Love by Hendrix

-Electric Ladyland by Hendrix

-Sgt. Pepper's by the Beatles.


Now, as for playlists, I have the following playlist set up in iTunes, and play it on shuffle mode. It doubles as my driving music playlist (it's even called that).

I know that 4 seat convertibles exist, I just think they should be outlawed.


EDIT: Except for the BMW 6 series. There is something very aesthetically wrong with taking a 4-door sedan and turning it into a 2-door convertible. And I just hate the Mustang. It's not a real sports car, it's a midlife crisis car for the baby boomer set.


Besides that, I just think that convertibles should be peroper two-seater sports cars. You on the left, some hot chick on the right, and a hotter engine in front. Why bother with a convertible you can transport your family in? There's no sex appeal in that.

In coupe or sedan forms, some of those cars aren't bad, I'll give you that. Especially the Bimmer and the Audi. But the Sebring? Solara? Hardly. They're front wheel drive and in hardtop form are boring family sedans.

i don't csre what car it is, as long as it's red and looks cool.




i couldn;t make up a full playlist, but i would definately include carly simon on some sort of summer play list. just her upbeat songs. she's so empowering to females. very confidant. and she [used to be] very hot.
