Ok, ok, fine. Some notes.
July was a random month. I traveled a ton, and this mix was actually 90% complete by the beginning of the month. Had a hard time finding the last few songs, though, and here we are on August somethingorother and I’m just now publishing it. Oopsie.
So there are a few pop songs on here…sorry ‘bout that, but you KNOW you love that Katy Perry song. Or at least you did in early July before it was overplayed. Party Rock Anthem is on there as it was our unofficial song of my friends Dave & Brit’s wedding. I’ve been boppin’ to Sydney by Brett Dennen since my roommate Kristen queued it up on our Sonos (OMFG I love Sonos). Sleep All Summer was on a mix last year, but it was the cover; this mix I’ve added the live version from the original singers, Crooked Finger. The lyrics get me every time. Added an older Frightened Rabbit track that I am somehow going to convice Scott to sing when we see ‘em next week at The Greek in LA. And finally, The Moody Blues song is one of my all-time favorites and I put it on there for a reason, but I’m not telling y’all why. Some secrets are better to keep.
With that, here’s “Sleep All Summer”, my July 2011 Mix. Thanks for your patience, and enjoy.
