The Summer Mixtape.
Few things say “summer love” better than a mixtape.
Me, I don't have a summer love. Well, not technically at least. It's unrequited. So, rather than compile a mixtape for my love, I've instead compiled a mixture for you, our readers. I love you all equally.
The upbeat, breezy songs you'll hear here invoke all kinds of summer settings — from lazy days at the beach to rolling around your car with its top down to hanging at your best friend's backyard BBQ — because every moment between June and September should exist to give you that warm fuzzy feeling. This mix, I hope, will help guarantee that.
You can stream the entire thing via the 8tracks player at the end of this post. (You can even download the 8tracks app for free on your smart phone and play it in your car if you want.)
Or you can right-click to download this ZIP FILE, which includes every song on the mix (except for the Goldroom Remix of “Hands” due to copyright concerns).
Then crack open a cold one, lather on some sunscreen, head outside and enjoy.
