Over the weekend, I asked Twitter followers to help me come up with a playlist for Memorial Day to officially kick off the summer season. We tagged our suggestions using the hashtag #summersongs and came up with dozens of great suggestions — enough for not one, but two amazing Grooveshark playlists for your listening pleasure. So, even if you’re working away in your office or cubicle this summer, at least you’ll have some tunes to remind you of a simpler time.
So have a listen to this amazing two-volume set:
- #summersongs 2011, Vol. 1 — featuring the work of Mungo Jerry, Blue Cheer, Bananarama, Ryan Adams, Fresh Prince, Lovin’ Spoonful, Grateful Dead, Soul Asylum and more.
- #summersongs 2011, Vol. 2 — featuring tunes by The Modern Lovers, B 52s, Tears for Fears, Madonna, Weezer, Journey, Sex Pistols and more.
Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. The result is an interesting, eclectic mix. Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
