Here in the northern hemisphere it’s summer, and so I’ve put together a mix CD to listen to with my friends in the car. Here’re my picks:
Dr Dre - Let Me Ride
Sublime - Doin Time
Common - The light
Pixies - Here comes your man
Black eyed peas - Hey Mama
Tupac - It Ain’t Easy
Coolio - Fantastic Voyage

Enigma - Return to innocence
The roots - The Seed 2.0
Wilco - I’m Always in Love
Naughty By Nature - Feel me Flow
Cake - Never There
Billy Idol - Dancing With Myself
Bob Marley - No Woman No Cry

What songs do you guys think are perfect for summer?

Sorry for the repeat posting, but:

“Love Rollercoaster” by The Ohio Players has to be on the list.

Mungo Jerry’s “In The Summertime” is absolutely essential.

You have not truly lived until you have heard this.
