Midsummer Mix by Nader Bouberhan (I need a cooler name)

So there has been some talk about posting Mid-Summer Mixes.
Here is mine, just for the heck of it.
This is a short list.

I’ll start with some early summer Music.

The Offspring-Want You Bad
This is the song I think about for the beginning of Summer.



Moving onward…..

Donna Summer—She Works Hard for the Money

I’ve posted about this song before. I used to hear this song as a jingle all the time, but it is engrained in my mind as a Childhood Memory of Midsummer.




The Tornadoes- Bustin’ Surfboards

Anything by the Tornadoes really feels like Summer, just like MJ and those Ball Park commercials.




And

James-Laid
(American Pie nostalgia)
This is my song for the end of summer.




I was going to add LA Baby from the “Jonas Brothers,” but then I really did not feel like it. It’s weird how that happens sometimes.

QATFYG:
Any posters want to publish their midsummer mixes?

And to seal this with my signature,
Since I like Bass Instruments so much
Here is a Russian Bass Balalaika soloist. They need more vids of the web.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
