PLAYLIST: Summertime is Sweet

Share this with your friends

This is my “Summertime is Sweet” mix and it includes songs celebrating the ease of summer and the joy of candy, sweets and ice cream.

Summer-themed songs and summer references pepper this music mix and celebrate the joy in the happiest and hottest season of the year. The ice cream songs are from the music mix I put together for the Hemp I Scream! Shortbus during my days of vending at Red Rocks Amphitheater concerts.

Other sweet songs are inspired by candy, sugars, flavors and the nostalgic liberating genius of Willy Wonka. This mix also reflects my reminiscing of the music and artists I listened to as a teenager, in anticipation of my 20th high school reunion. The Iggy Pop tune is the signature track as he says “Geez, it’s been 20 years, Candy, you were so fine”.

I know, Iggy, I know. It’s been 20 years and summertime is still as sweet as ever.

Enjoy the grooves!
