The "Ahhh Summertime" edition.
For me, summer and music are linked. That's true for everyone, right? I mean, in summer you have the time to blast loud music and dance around in your kitchen or something. (Not that I've been wasting my time on that recently, not while I need to put together a CV and try to find a real job, no siree.) Summer needs a soundtrack. So, here goes.
Firstly, because it reminds me of my misspent youth, and driving around in blisteringly hot weather for no reason in a crappy car when gas was cheap with all the windows rolled down while blasting the radio, and maybe later drinking a slurpee with rum in it (or maybe a frosty with whiskey in it) while lounging about on the front porch.
The Clash - "Rudy Can't Fail"
This one's for Abbie, who continues her weirdo love for Kraftwerk and all things roboty and electronical.
Kraftwerk - "Music Non Stop"
And because it's a good song, and in honor of being suspicious of any government who so readily denies civilian death tolls without letting anyone investigate, (methinks the lady doth protest too much) there's this one.
M.I.A. - "Sunshowers"
I've been finally watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD this summer, and quite like it, but I really like the music, funnily enough.
Bear McCreary - "The Dance" (not a particularly exciting video though)
And finally, because its the best summer song ever, (although here they are performing it the year I was born...neat!) and also optimal for kitchen dancing purposes.
The B-52s - "Rock Lobster"
