Happy Labor Day

Labor Day weekend

A few weeks ago I put together a list of the 10 best songs of summer for my work, and I just thought I should share it on here. It could be great for listening to at a backyard barbeque or while finishing up a to do list. Basically it’s good for most things. It’s what I’ll be listening to when making cookies later.

I hope you all are having an awesome weekend!

I’ve been spending today deep cleaning my room while watching a ton of Parks and Recreation. Yesterday the boyfriend and I went shopping together. The day before we went to Laguna Beach with his sister and her boyfriend. Friday night I got to hang with my other best friend. So, I could say it’s been a pretty good weekend.

Sunny songs for an overcast beach day

It’s an overcast summer day in Southern California, which is perfect for the beach, right? Not really, but I’m off to the beach any way. My boyfriend, his sister and I are going to a beach for the first time this summer. I am so excited that I made a playlist for the occasion. Do you make playlists for seasons and trips too? It’s so fun to do! The beach playlist I made is down below.

Click to hear on Spotify!

I put the playlist on Spotify after burning it to a cd. Now you can hear it too.

I made this playlist yesterday and added some new music to my iTunes library in the process. I got lucky too! Looking for some new songs brought me to NPR Music’s site through a post with the Top 25 Favorite Album of 2012 (So Far)  and the song of the day just so happened to be one described as a “shoegaze lover’s dream.” Paul is a shoegaze lover and musician, so I just had to get “Candy Girl” by Trailer Trash TracyNPR’s Top 25 list also got me to download “Words in the Fire” by Patrick Wilson. Both are pretty sweet airy tunes that are perfect for a relaxing summer day.

What are your favorite summer tunes?
