The Content’s Summer Mixtape 2006

About this time every year things start to slow down. Mothers start parading their kids around to back-to-school sales. Students start to pick up more hours at work to save up a little more cash before the start of the upcoming school year. Parties are largely nonexistent, for everyone seems to be saving up that last ounce of energy for that final summer get together – Labor Day.

The Content is going to go ahead and yell “humbug” on all of that. Summer is not a time to slow down your tan time and warm up for your fall work schedule; but a time to relax under the sun, carefree for the busy life, full of responsibility, which will inevitably return. My thought process might be such since I get out of summer school this week, but that doesn’t mean I am going to let everyone else suffer to the softening of summer. Hence the Summer Mixtape, a conglomeration of old and new tracks that is sure to put that summer spell back in the air.

Summer lovin', happened so fast.

i feel compelled to comment for two reasons. one, i love the mstrkrft remix of the bloc party song and two, i think you might mean labor day, not memorial day, and damn if i can't let shit like that go by without saying something about it. ;)

Ha. As Jon's spokesman I will just say that late night posts sometimes fog the mind. Prepare yourself for a kickass Memorial Day mix tape in 2007.

Good call on the Zombies track...Care of Cell 44 should be required on any respectable summer mix tape from now until forever. :)

What about "Sexy Back" by my favorite Mouseketeer? That sound rocks! "I'm bringing sexy back." Also on my list is "London Bridges" by Fergie and "Waiting on the World to Change" by the (Oscar) Mayer himself. What do you fellow bloggers thinK/

Because I was trying to make a "feel good, driving down Highway 1" summer mix without the headaches and booty shaking. There ain't be no "London, London, Lon-den" on this site till we decide to cover dancefloor pop or striptease hump, neither of which are in our immediate plans. And she peed herself on stage.

And g.latss, turn off the radio bro. We are trying to help you out with that part of your life by bringing a little more variety to your listening.

Does the soundtrack from Snakes on a Plane have any relation to Airplanes Landing on Foreheads?
