Can you believe it’s already September?! Here in NYC fall feels so close we can almost hear leaves crunching under our feet on our walk to work. But before we pack up our sundresses and sandals, let’s celebrate the summer that was with a kick-ass playlist, shall we? Last week, New York magazine’s culture blog, Vulture, posted its staffers’ picks for “Songs of the Summer,” so we here at The Frisky thought we’d do the same. After the jump, see what songs have kept us movin’ and groovin’ through the dog days of summer.
The Ohio Players, “Pain”
Passion Pit, “Little Secrets”
Animal Collective, “For My Girls”
Wilco, “Wilco Will Love You (Baby)”
Jay Reatard, “It Ain’t Gonna Save Me”
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Heads Will Roll”
Dead Weather, “Hang You From The Heavens”
Discovery, “Orange Shirt”
Julian Plenti, “Fun That We Have”
Yacht, “Psychic City”
We Were Promised Jet Packs, “Roll Up Your Sleeves”
So, let’s hear it — what’s your Song of the Summer?
