Summer Playlist for 2011 a la Britt (I like 'a la' a lot.)

Usually I go into much more detail with these kind of lists, but today not so much. I make a playlist every month! You can get burnt out doing this kind of thing! 

Now it's officially summer- MIDSOMMAR or whatever to our Scandinavian/Nordic frands- so this is a little more in step with the time. As of June 21st- now the days will be getting progressively shorter and whatnot, but let's not think of that.


"Summer Haze"- Manual

"Good Vibrations"- The Beach Boys CLASSIC

"Call of the Wild"- Florrie

"How Do You Like Me Now?"- The Heavy

"Rhiannon"- Fleetwood Mac CLASSIC

"You Might Think"- Weezer (Cars cover)

let me break my lack of words to say WHAT A SURPRISINGLY GOOD COVER. no it's not very different, but it's good, and Weezer needs to be good again.

"Dancehall Queen"- Robyn

"China Girl"- David Bowie

"Saw Red"- Sublime featuring Gwen Stefani

"Hot Mess"- Chromeo and the bitch from La Roux

(too late, I suppose)

"Cold Dust Girl"- Hey Champ




  1. i want to lock myself in a room and listen to the beachboys on repeat for a long long time.

  2. I CAN'T BELIEVE I FORGET JENNY + JOHNNY I love them this summer :(

"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

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
