Summer Music Mix

Bull Run

Over Memorial Day weekend we were eating outside on our deck and I was trying to figure out what music I should put on the stereo. What I really wanted was a summer music mix so after dinner I attempted to create one. Hmmm, easier said than done. Talk about an overwhelming task. So in a moment of inspiration I thought, what if I had my friends help? So here it is, a summer music mix created by a bunch of crafty girls.

The Captain –Kasey Chambers
Coney Island — Good Old War
Don’t Call It Love — Christa Wells
The Dress Looks Nice on You / Make You Feel That Way — Tor / Sufjan Stevens (f. Gift of Gab)
Heavenly Day — Patty Griffin
I Don’t Know — Lisa Hannigan
I’d Like to Know — Meg Hutchinson
Jacaranda Tree — Josh Garrels
Kamera — Wilco
The Littlest Birds — The Be Good Tanyas
Love — Matt White
Lucky (feat. Colbie Caillat) — Jason Mraz
My Mirror Speaks — Death Cab for Cutie
Ok, It’s Alright With Me — Eric Hutchinson
Passe em Casa — Tribalistas
Slow Pony Home — The Weepies
A Summer Song — Chad & Jeremy
That’s Not My Name — The Ting Tings
They’ll Soon Discover (Album Version) — The Shins
Walking On Sunshine — Katrina & The Waves

With the loss of mixwit I don’t think there is a (legal) way for me to post the actual music but I encourage you to check out some of the bands/songs you haven’t heard of before. I love this mellow mix, just perfect for sitting on a picnic blanket or a day at the beach. Thanks go to : Alicia, Amanda Jean, Anina, Blair, Emily, Eren, Erin, Hannah, Kathy, Melissa, Melissa, Molly, Morgan, Rachel, Sarah, and Stefani.
