Summer Grooves - Collaborative Playlists - Playlists completed (1 Viewer)

I posted this idea in one of the MAD music threads and thought would try this out. This is a bit of a summer riff on the Holly Jolly Palooza thread by @Eephus last December. Idea is to pull together some collaborative playlists with summer songs/themes in mind. (“Summerpalooza” already trademarked here, so going with something different.)

As in that one, will roll dice to randomly select two categories from the below list of categories.
  1. Beach/surfing/tiki - songs fitting the theme
  2. BBQ/Pool party - Let’s say you are hosting a BBQ party with some friends; what do you blast?
  3. Fourth of July mix
  4. Vacation/road trip - songs fitting the theme or might play on a road trip
  5. Songs with “summer” in the title
  6. Songs with “sun” (or a variation thereof) in the title
  7. Folk/acoustic summer
  8. Country summer
  9. Indie rock summer
  10. Instrumental/classical summer
  11. Soulful/funk summer
  12. Rain/Anti-summer - For those wishing it was winter already.
Spotify links to the playlists are above. (Bolded categories have had two passes of selections.)

(Shamelessly plagiarizing some of the rules from the Holly Jolly Palooza thread below.)

Participants can select TWO songs per day corresponding to the daily categories. For example, if Beach/surfing and Soulful/funk are rolled, you can choose one Beach/surfing and one Soulful/funk song or two from either of the categories (e.g., two Beach/surfing songs).

You must post your daily selections between 12:01 AM EST and 11:59 PM EST. (I expect to post categories for the next day a bit early because I can’t hang until midnight these days.) No makeup picks will be allowed; if you miss a day, you're out of luck but you can pick for the next day.
  • The same song by different artists can be picked for a given category/playlist.
  • The same song by the same artist may be picked in multiple categories.
  • The only thing that's disallowed is the same song by the same artist in the same category/playlist.
Every day will bring another two categories. Participants can join in for a day or stick around for the entire thread. There's no draft order, no spreadsheet, no obligations, just summer grooves.

I will give it a day or two before starting this up.

The most important news of the day... first categories up are:
  • Songs with "sun" (or a variation thereof) in the title
  • Soulful/funk summer

See rules in the OP. As a reminder, can select up to two songs per day. Can select (i) one song in each category, or (ii) two songs in one category and zero in the other. The only thing that's disallowed is the same song by the same artist in the same category/playlist.

The rules say start picking at midnight. Are we able to pick now?

I’ll allow it for Day One.
 
Been on a bit of a B&S kick lately.

Belle and Sebastian - Another Sunny Day


Another day in June, we'll pick eleven for football

We're playing for our lives, the referee gives us **** all

I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines
Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds
 
I have 11 years of summer lists, each 4 hours, to pull from. 2022 was the final one, though - the family dynamics changed and we weren't hanging around the pool/deck/pond together listening to summer songs anymore.
 
It's been a long time since we've been able to draft De La Soul so I'll go for a summery groove over anything explicit in the lyrics.

De La Soul - "A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays'"



Atmosphere - "Sunshine"


Might as well put them both in Soulful/Funk since that's not getting as much action.
 
I’ll add a couple to soulful/funk…

Bill Withers - Lovely Day


Sly & The Family Stone - Hot Fun in the Summertime

 
bob marley sun is shining


childish gambino feels like summer

 
Usually don't do these things but 1st song that comes to my mind hasn't been mentioned. So - In the Summertime, Mungo Jerry

Not sure if this is the best recording. Just the 1st I found
Welcome in! The water is fine.

Just wanted to make sure you saw that the categories kicking off today with are (1) songs with “Sun” in the title, and (2) soulful/funk. I can put it in the soulful/funk playlist, but just wanted to confirm you saw the daily categories before I did so.

Thanks. Was thinking
  • Soulful/funk summer
But didn't specify.

Ok! Added it in.
 
My Paloozopinion has always been that the genre-based playlists make for better listening than the treasure hunt categories. The Soulful/Funk mix is another example, it's just a delightful sunny groove.
I was just listening to it while outside working. Really good one — I think it was my favorite playlist from the Holly Jolly Palooza as well.
 
Some good stuff today. Dice have been rolled for June 1st, and we are kicking those car stereos up to 11:
If you want to add some selections before midnight, sure, go for it. I may see how much activity over the weekend and see whether to extend.

And still a couple of hours for any still wanting to make selections for 5/31. I see Krista was still thinking about her second one.
