Mission Possible: Beach Blanket Bingo

Ok, peeps.

This weekend begins our summer vacation in beautiful L.A. (Lower Alabama). We’ll be at the beach for 7 lovely days. A time to relax, have some fun and take stock of our lives. Given this objective, I need some music. Can you guys help me to construct a killer playlist for the beach? I hope so.

Simply contemplate this image….

then, give me your best. No limit on the number of songs, particular genres, or artists. Only restriction is time. I need the list by Friday night to add the music to my beach playlist. Here’s a start….

Brown-Eyed Girl, Steel Pulse (Reggae)

Sweet Caroline, Neil Diamond

Red, Red Wine, UB40

The Lion Sleeps Tonight, The Tokens

If It Don’t Matter, Donavon Frakenreiter

I’m In Love, Wilson Pickett

A Beautiful Morning, The Rascals

Fire On The Mountain, The Grateful Dead

But It’s Alright, J J Jackson

Stir It Up, Bob Marley

Saturday Smörgåsbord

Well, trying to get my mind off of the devastating loss and the thought of having to work on Monday. Still thankful, however.

Tears Dry on Their Own, Amy Winehouse. Dig the Ain’t No Mountain High Enough beat.

Say, John Mayer. From the new movie The Bucket List with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman — can’t wait for that one.

Wait For Me, Susan Tedeschi. No explanation needed.

Dragonforce. Mini DD’s favorite song….from Guitar Hero.

Groaning the Blues, Eric Clapton. “Slowhand” is still da man.

All I Want For Christmas is You, Mariah Carey. Because “here it comes”….and this song is just so fun.

House. Because I love him.

Lastly, this, right here, is funny….. don’t care who ya are. Messin’ with cats is just so damn fun.
