Mini Mixtapes, it’s like 4 songs for the price of nothing! Because it is! Ok, the theme this week is fall, because the weather kicked over straight into fall territory this week. So here’s 4 songs great for bonfire going, leaf stomping, or star gazing.
Karen O & the Kids – All Is Love (2009)
This is from the “Where The Wild Things Are” soundtrack, which in itself could have been today’s Mini Mixtape. But “All Is Love” is the most accessible of the bunch, and was actually a single. Just takes you back to childhood, don’t it?
Led Zeppelin – Tangerine (1970)
One of the many shocking chill cuts from Led Zeppelins’s third album, “Tangerine” stands out as being an innocent love song. Definitely a great song to just relax to, or play on a porch. Also featured in the movie “Almost Famous”.
Foo Fighters – Summer’s End (2007)
A bonfire tune if I ever heard one. All the elements of later-day Foos are present here; great guitar work, a jam vibe, and a chorus you can sing with. A little long, but hey, it’s good background music. Great as a goodbye to summer song that doubles as class rock send-up.
Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends (2004)
HAHA IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE SEPTEMBER ENDED YESTERDAY. Following that logic, click here. Anyway, this “couldn’t escape it” hit off American Idiot used to be the bane of my existence, but it’s just a fitting song, you know?
Have a great Friday/Saturday!
