Summer. The hottest season. We rejoice in its arrival. We complain when the index rises and the humidity sets in. We enjoy chilled beverages next to cool bodies of water or with picnics on the grass. We have cookouts with friends and embrace the sun, even when it's under the protection of a big, floppy hat or the shade of a tree. Summer. We take vacations or day trips. We enjoy lazy afternoons or swimming underwater.
I have curated an eclectic playlist of 90 songs that I feel embody the spirit of summer, from swimming to vacations, lazy afternoons to summer love, carnivals to the gentle summer breeze. Music from The Andrew Sisters to Guided by Voices, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince to Camera Obscura, the B-52s to Best Coast, and Pavement to Frankie Avalon, and everything in between.
Of course, there's the song that inspired the title of this mix, The Cars' Magic. Let summer "turn you upside down". Embrace every minute of sun, surf, or what have you, summer has to offer. Simultaneously, why not listen to some great tunes? Listen on random or straight through. This mix has been tried and tested to delight your ears and heart.
What's left to say, but Happy Summer!
