Music Monday: Summertime

This is my third post in as many days I think, so I'm going to cheat a bit. Light years ago my brother, breaking his arm patting himself (I actually typed "hisself") on the back, sent me an email with all links and summaries included for a Music Monday. I've given MM the short shrift lately, so now that I'm on holiday and doing precisely nothing every day, I thought I could do some cutting and pasting to get this topic off the ground again.

So here we go. Brother's comments included.

Lemon Jelly-The Staunton Lick--This song always calms me down and makes me feel great, no matter what.


The Verve-Bittersweet Symphony--No explanation needed. Classic.


Marc Broussard-Home (Let it be known that the album version is fucking stellar but most of the rest of the album is crap) You can watch the actual video on youtube, you just can't embed it.


Led Zeppelin-Fool in the Rain


Oasis-She's Electric--Crank that shit up, the first 10 seconds are amazing full blast.


Bob Marley-Stir It Up--Most any Marley song will suffice in the summer time. If you can't find joy in his music, I don't know how you find joy in life at all.


M.Ward feat. Zooey Deschanel-Never Had Nobody Like You


Gov't Mule-Soulshine


Jay-Z feat. Santogold-Brooklyn We Go Hard


Wilco-You Never Know. Fucking. Awesome.
