After downright drooling over Danger Mouse’s beyond epic summer playlist, P&C decided to knock its heads together and come up with its own gargantuan list.
Instead of it being the brainchild of one–all four of the P&C contributors gave it a go; each a playlist worthy of 25 tracks, for a total of 100 delicious summer tunes for you to gobble galore.
Each of the playlists will be published here by the contributor who created the mix in the coming days.
First up in the series is humble blogger (yeah, that’s me!). My 25 are funk driven, r&b-soul classic heavy, and experimental pop and electronica gold. It’s kind of a haphazard mix, and to be quite honest, downright nearly impossible to keep to 25 (so many left out!), but there’s always next year…
Tracklisting is as follows:
1 Donna Summer – Heaven Knows 2 Curtis Mayfield – Pusherman 3 Daft Punk – Emotion 4 Gang of Four – I Love a Man in Uniform 5 Arthur Russell – That’s Us/ Wild Combination 6 Digable Planets – Rebirth of Slick (Cool like That) 7 Hot Chip – Over and Over 8 Sparks – Angst in my Pants 9 – Soldiers of Twilight – Believe (Mastersounds Remix) 10 Archie Bell and the Drells – Tighten’ Up 11 Talking Heads – This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody) 12 Major Lance – Girls 13 Groove Armada – Paper Romance (Classixx Remix)14 Husker Du – Celebrated Summer 15 Mink Deville – Spanish Stroll 16 Jens Lekman – A Sweet Summer’s Night on Hammerhill 17 LCD Soundsystem – All My Friends 18 Lou Reed – Walk on the Wild Side 19 Massive Attack – Teardrop 20 Cornershop – Sleep on the Left Side 21 The Shirelles – Mama Said 22 Lulu and the Luvvers – Shout 23 Simian Mobile Disco (feat.
