It’s here, the home stretch of summer has arrived.
Lollapalooza is in the rear view, Lake Shake Country Festival has long passed and Windy City Smoke Out has come also come and gone. And all of those nights filled with BBQ nachos, and belting lyrics, out of rhythm, out of key- each of them, have been some of the absolute best days of this Windy City summer.
So obviously my playlist is going to be inspired by some of these songs, and some embarrassing dance moves and of course the memory of sprinting hand in hand with my best friends to Red Hot Chili Peppers to catch a glimpse of these studs performing Californication.
Every one of these songs has come to mean something to me this past month- it’s been a set I saw at Lollapalooza and heard for the first time, or the jam I’ve had on repeat all month (whaddup Billy Currington at Windy City Smokeout?), or the album that’s helped me get through one more set at the gym… all of these words and lyrics and rhythms have created memories and inspired me the past 31 days, and now I’m hoping to make the songspo contagious via this playlist.
So, here’s your Tuesday Tune-age- it’s (still) a little random, it’s (still) a bit eclectic, but it’s no doubt a dang good one.
