roll your windows down: a soundtrack for spring/summer

if you’re like me, a drive through town these days is less worth the trip without the windows down and, in my case, the sunroof open. indeed, it’s springtime and we’re marching quickly toward a bright and sunny summer. these things are only made better with just the right soundtrack. so, i’ve taken it upon myself to whip up a little something and i thought it would only be fitting if i shared it with everyone.

so, on this mix, you’ll find a blend of spring and summer songs that should get you through the better part of the next 5 or more months. you’ll notice that i tried to keep it diverse, with music ranging from indie afro-pop to a fresh prince to songs that will make you sweat. no doubt, there’s something for everyone (including girls who like to wear abercrombie & fitch…).

so, enjoy! presents roll your windows down (a mix for spring/summer)

    Now I feel bad for not designing a fancy cover for my playlist. 🙂

    that's funny. i didn't even know you made a mix until i just went to your website. maybe there's some kind of cosmic playlist synchronicity going on here… 🙂 (btw, good mix)
