Urban Summer - Part 1 (Day)

Memorial day means the beginning of summer (although our calendar may need a little tweaking to bring the holiday of our national cult in line with the actual solstice). In celebration, I've created a mix which you can download and enjoy called "Urban Summer." The first part of the mix, Day, evokes summer days in the city: the mix of lethargy and pent-up sensuality, sweltering heat radiating from asphalt and not a swimming pool in site. Here's the track list:

  1. 883 - La lunga estate caldissima
  2. Jurassic 5 - Concrete Schoolyard
  3. Joe Cuba - I'll Never Go Back to Georgia
  4. Janis Joplin - Summertime
  5. Lauryn Hill - Every Ghetto Every City
  6. Sergio Mendes & the Brasil 66 - Pais Tropical
  7. Belle & Sebastian - Legal Man
  8. Five Stairsteps - Ooh Child
  9. Lily Allen - Everything's Just Wonderful
  10. Fifth Dimension - The Age of Aquarius / Let the Sun Shine In
  11. Manu Chao - Minha Galera
  12. Isley Brother - Summer Breeze
  13. Sundays - Summertime
  14. John Barry - Midnight Cowboy Theme
  15. Joe Cocker - Hot Town Summer in the City

Stay tuned for Part 2!
