Music Should Be Edible

What I’m listening to today, in order to both focus on my piles of paperwork and to not think obsessively about the fact that I’m on post-HRW diet (ya rly) and am now consuming about half the calories that I was last week:

Strange Fruit

What are you listening to these days?


And the Livin’ Is Easy

Sometimes, for no reason in particular, I make nonsensical lists of songs on Seeqpod.  It’s a favorite activity of mine and obviously has no relation to food.  So if you came here for the food, you’re probably not going to be too interested in my musical ramblings for the next few paragraphs.

Anyway, here are a couple of the “mix tapes” I’ve made over the past months:

Down Tempo




You might notice an underlying theme here, which is that none of these songs have anything to do with each other (and also contain some pretty embarassing song choices).  With that in mind, I set about to create a mix tape that actually has some semblance of structure to it.

So, with that said, I present to you: Summer Songs!  These are songs that — mostly for no reason at all — remind me of summer.  Some of the choices might be utterly mystifying to you (Beth, by KISS, for example), but we all have our strange little summer memories, don’t we?

Enjoy the non-food-related mix tape and tell me: what songs remind you of summer?

UPDATE:  Summer Songs playlist fixed, thanks to Croque Camille.  🙂
