Zack Harrison Memorial Music Monday: Wednesday Edition.

Guess what happens when you work all the time, then come home and pass out, only to resurrect yourself for a 9pm beer, but then you pass out again almost immediately in your heels with mascara running down your face? You don't listen to as much music (or read as many blogs and it's not that I don't want to, it's just that I'm unconscious). Some of this stuff is old (e.g. has been posted on here before), some of it's crap, but all of it's what I've been listening to then thinking, "hey, this should go on a summer mix." And then I pass out cold. If you'd like a Blythe's Summertime07 Fantastic Fun-time Mix To The Max™, please send me a SASE and CD. And beer.

Let's get the beach ball rolling with a summertime guilty pleasure:
How Bizarre - OMC

Songs explicitly referencing summer:
Summertime - The Sundays
Summertime Cowboy - Husky Rescue
July, July! - Decemberists
Summersong - DecemberistsSummer Day - Coconut Records

Let's makeout outside and get sweaty and sticky with grass:
Wordless Chorus - My Morning Jacket
Can You Come For Me - The Poems
Butterfly Nets - Bishop Allen
Tender - Blur
Sundress - Ben Kweller
Sightlines - Rogue Wave

These are my dancing flip-flops:
Boyz - M.I.A.
Stop Me - Mark Ronson
Bounce That - Girl Talk
Stick your feet in the pool!
Clarity - Furu ft. Common
She Moves In Her Own Way - The Kooks
Work It Out - RJD2

Corndog - Mike Hosty *not the song, I can't find it. iTunes people. It's about corndogs and state fairs.
The Underdog - Spoon
Heart It Races - Dr. Dog
Oxford Comma - Vampire Weekend
Screendoor - Illinois
My Rights Versus Yours - The New Pornographers
Here Comes The Meter Man - Metric
Solta O Frango - Bonde Do Role

I like these posts. It keeps me from downloading Kenny Loggins when I sit down in front of iTunes.

However, I also spent $50 last night downloading music. Now I'm going to have to spend more. Thanks. You're taking away my beer money.

stewpid said...

I sincerely love you for paying for music. For serious.

dmbmeg said...

I don't steal. Unless it's pint glasses from my favorite bar at Iowa.

and mens' hearts.

stewpid said...

I shoplifted bean dip once.

Hey, bee, I had a pic for cringesday. are u not doing cringesday? should I do my own cringesday??????????

blythe said...

dmbmeg - OMG. i spend tons of monkey lettuce on iTunes and even more on cd's. it's my burden. and the only thing i've stolen is nail polish (and virginity).

stew - i switched monday and wednesday without giving notice. apologies. can it wait till next week? if i'm alive, i'd love to post it since i really have nothing left embarrassing to share about myself. i kid. but not about posting your pic wednesday. i'm trying to get this moved to a bar, too. like freddy's in brooklyn. i'm sure you're famliar since you're in NJ.

someone has not had their sugar free redbull this morning! it's me!

Went to an open-air hometown Decemberists concert a few weeks back ,and they opened with "July, July" and "Summersong" under an incandescent Northwest summer sky.

It was like uncut, distilled essence of summertime. Sweeeeeeet.

Dan said...

I hate to be the "telling stories bout your crazy trips" guy, but:

When I first got that Blur album, I came home from work, took 2 hits of acid, played Tender on repeat for about 2 hours while playing video golf with the illiterate and toothless dishwasher from Applebees (where I cooked). I then left and laid down in my bedroom which was painted kelly green at the time and sang the song to myself while hallucinating that I was lying on a putting green. "Come on, come on, come on. Get through it"

stewpid said...

omg freddy's! of course! Since I am very nearby, in West Orange, NJ, I go there all the time! When I am not in my home Garden state listening to Bon Jovi, that is. You know what New Jersey sometimes reminds me of? Missouri. I bet it's freaking hot in Missouri today. Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot. If I lived in Missouri today, I'd be so miserable and hot. And my kitchen would smell like fire.

Michael5000 said...

BTW, Cringeday BELONGS in the middle of the week. It wants to be the happy little reminder that we are halfway through the week.

JebusHChrist said...

Cringesday must stay on Wednesday. It simply must. Hah! I just typed "musk" instead of must. That would be a great name for manspray. "Simply Musk" I like that. Simply Musk.

blythe said...

michael -

dan - you're my hero. besides garth algar.

stewpid - since MO is kind of close to OK, i think i can smell a burning kitchen.

michael and jebus - it was just that once, baby. it meant nothing. she means nothing.

Dan said...

if you were a president, you'd be Babe-raham Lincoln.

blythe said...

dan - i just made the mistake of reading that and answering the phone simultaneously which resulted in laughter explosion. i will probably now be fired. thanks a lot.

Jess said...

I am listening to "The Underdog" on The Current as I type this.


JebusHChrist said...

Simply Musk.

stewpid said...

whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww it doesn't smell like a kitchen fire anymore, it smells like... an oddly attractive man. Where is that coming from?????

blythe said...

jess - but i think you got yr. cherry bomb is my favorite. LOVE the current

jebus - at first i read tusk. that's not supposed to be funny or anything, just true.

stewpid - it's either coming from me or elizabeth taylor up there. jebus is totaly swathed in gauze sensually whisptering "simply musk." why are fragrace commercials so fucked up?

blythe said...

my fragrance would be called "whisperting lesbina."

Dan said...

Simply Tusk, meet whispering lesbina.

wait! whispering lesbina! come back! It's not that bad!

JebusHChrist said...

Whispering Lesbina smells significanly better than the whiff I got of Angry Ex I caught the other night. It smelled like Cool Ranch Doritos and regret.

blythe said...

it's "whispterting" - get it? it was a joke about my typo. and then there's the lesbina typo - so it's funny typo combo. no one understands me.

is this ex you speak of single? i ask because, to me, cool ranch doritos and regret smell a lot like love.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Sorry I missed your birthday Sunday! I was at Lollapalooza (jealous, I know).

stewpid said...

what am I wearing? Why, that's Diesel and Desperation®™©

blythe said...

cherry - this is so rere, but i actually missed you!

stew - smells like, well, desperation. i know because i wear it too.

me - you got your own typo wrong (sounds like a spoon song).

and i'm done for the day. seriously. lame ass city over here.

dmbmeg said...

I thought lesbina was just a new term the cool kids were saying (i.e. not me). I was just about to introduce it into my vernacular.

Perhaps I still should.

ALong with: assface, jared's sexual sandwich.

dmbmeg said...


blythe said...

i, of course, meant the fuel.

d said...

i thought y'all were talkin' about vin diesel. which was funny. 'cause who's desperater?

JebusHChrist said...

Angry Ex smells like a diesel fuel gas jockey after a double shift.

stewpid said...

my car runs on diesel.

the desperation? that's all me.

By the way, after last Zack Harrison Memorial Music Monday, I checked out Suburban Kids with Biblical Names and ended up buying two of their records. (Yes, buying. Paying for downloads is kind of badass. It's like I'm flaunting my wealth.)

So, who says the bee-spot isn't influential? Oh wait, I remember. Mr. Shain does.

Who the hell is Zack Harrison, anyway?

blythe said...

d - don't you be bad mouthing vin. i mean, have you seen the pacifier? it will certainly make the next AFI top 100 list.

jebus - mmm.

michael - yay! yay! yay! that's what i want to hear! also, now i can call SKWBN and get some $$ for a referral. j/k! but seriously, that's all i intend with these posts. take a listen, if you like, you buy. and perhaps next week i will resurrect zack harrison for an explanation. perhaps.
