In addition to Memorial Day's remembrance of U.S. service men and women who have fallen in the line of duty, it also has historically marked an unofficial start to summer in the United States. To that end, we've crafted a Spotify playlist of tunes that make us think about warmer weather and everything that goes along with it — driving with the windows rolled down, cookouts, beach trips, and comfy clothes. Check it out!
It was extremely difficult to pare this down to fifteen tracks, but we tried our best! A few notes on the selections:
• I first learned about The O'Jays from Tracy Morgan referring to them in an episode of SNL.
• The Go-Go's 'Vacation' soundtracks a montage in one of the best episodes of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia ever, 'The Gang Goes To The Jersey Shore'.
• Pavement's 'Cut Your Hair' is one of our all time favorite videos of the mid-90s:
• Picking between Biggie's 'Juicy' and 'Hypnotize' was the toughest decision made in the creation of this list.
• Oasis recorded a ridiculous number of high-quality B-sides from 1994-1997; 'Stay Young' is my favorite.
That's it until next week — have fun over the weekend and stay safe!
Peace, love, and tacos,
