Summer Mixtape

I have always been a huge fan of the mixtape and received a lot from JCW over the years. He started making mixtapes in middle school and then gradually evolved into mix CDs and now he's all about new playlists for road trips. In high school he even gave me a breakup mixtape and low and behold we were back together by the end of the week! With Summer officially over I wanted to share my Summer Mix...

  1. You and Tequila, Kenny Chesney
  2. Pumped Up Kicks -Foster The People
  3. The Downeaster "Alexa" -Billy Joel
  4. Lawyers, Guns, and Money -Widespread Panic
  5. King of Wishful Thinking -Go West
  6. Funcky Kingston  -Toots & The Maytals
  7. The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie -Chili Peppers
  8. Honey Bee -Blake Shelton
  9. Last Friday Night -Katy Perry
  10. How You Like Me Now -The Heavy
  11. You Lie -The Band Perry
  12. Forever Young -Jay-Z/Mr.Hudson
What would you put on your Summer Mixtape? If you decide to do a Mixtape post be sure to let me know, I love hearing about new songs or even being reminded of songs from the past.

"Pumped Up Kicks" is one of my favorite tunes right now. Great songs for a summer mix-tape!

All I have to say right now is that I am dying over the breakup mixtape!! so funny! I fell in love with my now husband at 15, and those are the kind of things you never forget! Growing up together allows for so many great memories!

My favorite tune these days is the remix of "Summer Breeze" by Philip Steir. I discovered it using the Spotify music streaming service:
