ACITM Summer Music Essentials (Pt. 2/2)

Here’s part 2 of the Summer Music Essentials. Enjoy!

If you missed part 1, click here.

Songs Everyone Loves

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.

Week that Was (10-11-12 to 10-17-12)

If you’re like me, fall weather means long walks with no destination to take in the great outdoors while it’s not 80 below yet. And if you’re like me, you do this with good music coming in through your headphones. Here’s the “Week that Was,” with a badass track from Angel Haze. Enjoy, repost, let us know what we missed!

Week that Was (6-28-12 to 7-5-12)

We’re a day late on this one, but hopefully everyones 4th celebrations were amazing. The summer has been bringing out banger after banger, and this week was no different with my current favorite song “New God Flow” dropping by Chicago’s very own Kanye. That’s the stuff you definitely heard… but as for what you should also be listening to…

Goldroom – Fifteen (ft. Chela) TABS remix
