Songs for Chicago

download a new mix: ‘songs for chicago’

today, christen and i leave for a few days in chicago for our 14th (!) anniversary. and as many of you know, i always try to make a mix for the city/region that i’m traveling to. i’ve made mixes for everything from new york to denver to los angeles.

putting together mixes for places like new york and new orleans is a layup, but it might not get any easier than chicago. there’s so much great music from chicago (and that captures the spirit of chicago). beyond being just great music, there’s also a lot of variety, so it makes for a mix that has something for everyone.

so, let’s do it. here’s the lineup for my songs for chicago mix:

    1. smashing pumpkins: muzzle
    2. andrew bird: pulaski at night
    3. francis & the lights: may i have this dance (ft. chance the rapper)
    4. kanye west: send it up (ft. chief keef)
    5. sufjan stevens: chicago
    6. the black keys: sinister kid
    7. arcade fire: rococo
    8. wilco: i might
    9. kid cudi: immortal
    10. the white stripes: dead leaves and the dirty ground
    11. cory chisel & the wandering sons: see it my way
    12. veruca salt: empty bottle
    13. bon iver: michicant
    14. ok go: this too shall pass
    15. common: southside (ft. kanye west)
    16. eddie vedder: you’ve got to hide your love away
    17. sylvan esso: H.S.K.T.
    18. mr. jukes: angels/your love (ft. B.J. the chicago kid)
    19. divine fits: flaggin’ a ride
    20. fall out boy: sugar, we’re goin’ down
