These tracks are for the people that hate a certain type of genre or for people that hate every single song regardless of what it is. The people that wish the Beatles were still around and take every opportunity to tell you so. These songs are enjoyable for everyone; watch as the foot discreetly starts tapping along to the beat and notice how hours later the stuck in the 70′s music fan is still humming the song they heard in your car.
This is a massive post. 2 parts. Mentally prepare yourself. We’ve picked out essential songs for every single situation you will find yourself in this summer. Guaranteed. Whether you’re: gearing up for a party, crusin’ down Lake Shore Drive, on the beach with friends, driving with people who only like The Beatles and hate everything else, rolling with the OG’s who miss 90′s music, hanging with the homies or trying to impress the ladies, itching for a chance to display your dance moves, or returning home alone after a great Chicago summer night, ACITM has got you covered. A comprehensive Spotify playlist is available at the bottom. Enjoy and feel free to add on!
These are the songs you can get away with playing whenever, wherever during the summer season. Anyone can be at your party or in your car, and they will generally be ok with the tracks. The “I miss the golden era of music” people will even be satisfied.
Rhymes so real thought I wrote it in Janis Joplin’s vomit.
Taking a break from his upcoming release OLD, Danny Brown releases “Hottest MC,” a direct response to MTV’s annual “Hottest MC” Countdown. The list has been coming under fire, with even Kanye West chiming in about his #7 ranking. Regardless, some awesome lines in this, and an overall more aggressive, focused feel to the track. Expecting big things from Danny, the album should be one of the best of 2013. Enjoy!
