Episode 51 - Summertime Smorgasbord
Because they did me the favor of visiting me, I forced a good 40% of my extended family into the ol' podcast studio to discuss our favorite songs about America and the summertime, but mostly the summertime.
Hang ten and put your wayfarers on for a deep conversation on topics like what's the opposite of America, when's the best time to barbeque, is Dave Matthews music a substitute for Ambien, and just how awesome is a bottle of Zima? And in a They're Playing Our Song first: country music! Then a somber tangent about regret, past joys, and growing up as summer vacation hits the halfway point.
Please very much nostal-joy!
If you want to join us in thinking fondly about the songs we discussed, here's the final list:
"It Must Be Summer" by Fountains of Wayne (Rob's choice)
"Surfin' U.S.A." by The Beach Boys (Heejean's choice)
"Hot Fun In the Summertime" by Sly and the Family Stone (Brendon's choice)
"Summertime" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince (Justin's choice)
"Heavy Metal Drummer" by Wilco (Diana's choice)
"Cold Beverage" by G. Love and Special Sauce (Jessica's choice)
