Summer 2008 Rum and Coke Mix

During summer of 2008 in a more innocent time before 9/11, I was living in a 14 room nursing home. At night, I could turn up the music as loud as I wanted because I was the only one there. This is what I was listening to:

Drinking in a cramped 1 bedroom with an awesome view of some powerlines, I first heard this song on Phil's play list. He had no idea where it came from.
Lauryn Hill: Lose Myself

I heard of Lemon Jelly first from Phil listening to the song "Nice Weather For Ducks" in his car on the way to Sonic. Although there are no ducks specifically mentioned in this song, I'm sure Phil will find some way it relates to ducks.
Lemon Jelly: Stay With You

Somehow this song fits the morning routine. I have since become a big fan of MGMT. I will forever associate the song "Kids" with the book "The Road."
MGMT: Destrokk

This song reminds of the time the band's bus had a blow-out and we spent the night in Wichita. -98 degrees. Ronnie Van Zant, Greg T. Walker and 3 huskies didn't make it.
Gnarls Barkley: Going On

For some reason this track reminds me of the Special Olympics.
M83: We Own The Sky

I downloaded the whole Gorillaz Repertoire at the beginning of the summer. This song will forever remind me of my brothers and I scrubbing the shit out of the floor with a Mr. Clean sponge. We never did get those marks up...
Gorillaz: O Green World

Hopefully, this week I'll have a chance to get these songs up for download. Check back.

  1. This post brings back memories of AB at 8 and again at 8:30 (if we're lucky) and playing magic crammed onto that coffee table. Good work!
