Beach Music

May 2, 2008

Inspired by Simon's music contest, I thought I'd share with all of you my favorite summer music. So here it is, Jennifer's Beach Music Mix:

  • "Son of a Son of a Sailor" by Jimmy Buffet

  • "Cachito" by Mana

  • "Beautiful Girls" by Van Halen

  • "Peaceful Easy Feeling" by The Eagles

  • "Lowrider" by War

  • "Smooth" by Santana (featuring Rob Thomas)

  • "Soul of the Sea" by Heart

  • "Tequila" by The Champs

  • "Paperback Writer" by The Beatles

  • "Beautiful Stranger" by Madonna

  • "The Way" by Fastball

  • "Into the Ocean" by Blue October

  • "Don't Know Why" by Norah Jones

  • "Dune Buggy" by Presidents of the United States of America

But of course, there are a few entire albums that fit the bill for me too, such as:

  • ¿Dónde Jugarán los Niños? by Mana

  • Songs You Know by Heart by Jimmy Buffet

  • Supernatural by Santana

  • Dreamboat Annie by Heart

  • The Presidents of the United States of America (self titled)

Now it's your turn. What music do you listed to during the Summer? at the beach? to make you feel happy on a sunny day? Let's hear it!

I never think of Wagner and Orff as summer and/or beach music. Outdoor Elvis, however. That's summer music!
