Well, summer is almost over and there’s one long weekend left to get your BBQ and Beach on. So here’s a final installment of the Bangin Beach & BBQ Playlist 2010. Have fun out there everyone.
16) Genesis – I Can’t Dance:
Genesis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year for their many musical contributions and fans (they’ve sold over 150 million records worldwide since they formed in the late 60s), and this track from We Can’t Dance (Phil Collin’s last studio album with the band) was one of their most commercially successful. The video reminds me of my parents and their friends doing funny dances in our living room during the summer. And also that beach scene with the dog is kind of funny.
17)Twin Shadow – I Can’t Wait:
I know we recently posted about Twin Shadow but this track, “I Can’t Wait,” is perfect for an end of summer mix. Even though George Lewis Jr.’s lyrics are “I cannot wait for summer/I cannot wait for June,” there’s a melancholic longing in his voice that speaks more of memories and regrets from a summer spent than a season just beginning. Either way, the track is required listening.
And while you’re at it, check out Gordon Voidwell’s remix of the same track (via Rcrd Lbl):
18) LCD Soundsystem – Daft Punk Is Playing at My House:
19)Kanye West – What It Do/What It Is
GET THAT FRENCH HORN AND YOUR BOOTY TO THE DANCE FLOOR. “PRESS GO!”
20) Big Boi ft. Vonnegutt – Follow Us:
Now that Big Boi from Outkast was finally able to resolve all these issues with Jive Records and release his solo record Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, I’ve got to say that the record has an abundant selection of dope tracks (with a few missteps along the way). Does anyone else thing that the singer from Vonnegutt sounds a lot like Cale Parks? I want a BRAHMS remix.
