unknown summer jam songs

Mark Morrison-Return Of The Mack

Oh damn! We’re going back in time today, campers! If you were alive in the mid-nineties, at some point you’ve probably gotten DOWN to this song.

Mark Morrison has-even for a R&B artist-a pretty impressive criminal record as well as a Mohammed Ali-like talent for talking himself up. A few years ago he was jailed for-get this-hiring an impersonator to fulfill his community service while he went on tour! How awesome is that?

Lauryn Hill-Every Ghetto, Every City

Talk about being thankful! Lauryn Hill’s memories are about growing up in New Jersey, but these lyrics transcend just one person’s reminiscence. I think everyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s can find something in this song to relate to, and bring a smile to their face. This song-besides being catchy as anything-underscores the need to look back and remember where you came from, and to never forget what it was like to be a younger you, and try your best to hold on to that childhood feeling that all is right with the world and things will be okay.

Enjoy!

Derek and the Dominos-Keep On Growing

Well, once again the holidays are upon us! It’s Monday now, but it’ll be Thursday before you know it, and I’m sure that America’s turkeys are quaking in their adorable little three-toed boots as Thanksgiving rapidly approaches.

For this weeks song picks, I thought I’d get into the holiday spirit with songs that I, personally am thankful for. “Keep On Growing” is easily in my top five favorite songs ever, and it’s one of those rare gems that just seems to get better and better and better the more you listen to it. A standout song on an album of standout songs (Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs-don’t own it? Beg, borrow, or steal a copy, there’s a reason it’s a classic), this tune smacks you right in the face with a totally unassailable groove and a glorious, heavenly wash of guitars that force you to get down to it and ROCK. Enough talk, hit play and love it!

Great Big Sea – Lukey

( @Great_Big_Sea ) Here’s a really fun song. See if you can figure out the lyrics without looking them up.

Harry Manx – Don’t Forget to Miss Me

Harry Manx is definitely one of those guys that most people don’t know about. He is an extremely talented folk musician from the Isle of Man. You can hear eastern influences in a lot of his music but not so much in this song. Enjoy!

Taj Mahal – Queen Bee

Taj Mahal is one of my favorite musicians and song writers. I was lucky enough to get back stage passes to his show at the Fillmore in San Francisco a few months ago where I heard him perform Queen Bee live.
