Well Summer starts tomorrow, and if this isn’t a summer song, then I don’t know what it is.
Poolside – Slow Down
This is produced/DJed by Mark Ronson, who has amazing taste (and I have on good authority – UNA! – that he is a nice person in real life). It’s also the Olympic theme so, I mean. How can this not be on a workout mix? He uses samples of boxers hits, the heartbeat of a runner, and a few other sounds from athletes. How effing cool is that.
Fun blockbuster of a song ripped from Radio 1. That is one reason I wish I had satellite radio. Know how my sci-fi tastes lean towards British? Basically everything I’m into leans towards British. Also, another summer song. This post has a theme!
This song starts off retro and pretty and cute and irresistible. Not sure about this band in total, but this song is totally a fun summer song. The guitars and general sound remind me of bands I was into in early to mid-college. Little nostalgia.
