What are your songs of the summer?
I am once again asking you to crowd-source a playlist.
I was sitting by the pool Sunday afternoon, trying unsuccessfully to work through a nagging headache and even more unsuccessfully to rebuff my children’s pleas for something from the snack bar. The sun was shining, the water was warm, but mostly, I was just enjoying the music that played over the pool’s loudspeakers.
After about the fourth time I found myself remarking “ah, this is a great song” to an entirely-predictable playlist of classic rock and ‘80s pop hits, I realized that some songs just hit different on a sunny summer day.
Now, we’ve had some fun assembling playlists together here before—putting together crowd-sourced playlists for a tailgate and for the jukebox at a fictional dive bar—and I’d like to try something like that again today.
