Prefacing a birthday with a beach bonanza of sorts requires a list of MUST-HAVES
-$$$ to make it possible
-SPF 2,000 for the ghost friends
-A variety of refreshments to keep the weekend in full swing
-The brightest and/or tackiest beach giddup you can conjure
-Skanky beach aliases to make things more interesting
-Those that have been around to witness your transition to seawitch
And maybe the most important… a playlist to serve as the soundtrack to all your forthcoming shenanigans.
While my playlist is still growing and changes are being made you can follow it’s progression on spotify by clicking the link below. 100+ songs so far!
This playlist was made to set the stage for summer with plenty of Indie Pop, Afropop, Soul and R&B. Selections from the past are sprinkled in with hits from today. Tastes may vary but I feel this cluster of songs will be like your beach buzz: smooth… upbeat… a little funky at times… and ready to keep going!
Also make sure to follow me on Facebook where I link my blog posts and share other interesting items I find. Currently I’m sharing music videos for songs on my playlist to help you get through your work day!
And as I prepare for what will most certainly be my best birthday adventure yet I am also preparing what I hope to be a summer playlist like no other. Sun and sand go hand in hand with the appropriate music.
As a child my eyes watched countless films depicting epic Summers that both the young and the not-so-young (I’m looking at you Stella) experienced. While these films were great on their own, what I really paid attention to was their soundtracks.
The tunes that played when they popped the cap off their soda in glass bottles.
The beats that drummed while they let go of things in their every day life that were holding them back.
Those melodies that made us want to fall in love with a stranger or a strange place we were hesitant to explore.
I’m attempting to collect the perfect tracks for the warm seasons of 2017. The old, the new, the inbetween… a soundtrack for the dog days of summer.
Once I’ve made enough progress, and have a hefty enough list, I will post a link for you to enjoy the collection.
Until then though follow along through my Facebook page as I link music videos of my selections.
