IMVERYAPE’S SUMMER MIXTAPE – VOLUME 1
If there is one thing I learned from Weekend at Bernie’s, it was that summer can make anything fun (even the cold-blooded assassination of a colleague). Something about the liberation of the warmth makes every moment just that much better. Maybe vitamin D’s chemical reaction with Coke slurpee releases mass amounts of seratonin, I don’t know. Whatever it is, it keeps me smiling for three months. And my strong positive connection with the fairer season also gives me a partiality to its music.
The sounds of summer are carefree, light, airy, and catchy. They are the Vampire Weekends, the Gipsy Kings, the Avalanches, the Paul Simons, and I love them all. What better music to listen to than the music that brings you back on the beach, by that baby blue water, under that gorgeous sun? So I thought I would make a few summer playlists over the course of the next few months, and I hope you have as much fun listening to them as I did making them.
