Sounds of Summer 2016

It’s been a hot and humid few months here in Overland Park, Kansas! I am originally from the Northeast (I’ll give some more background in another post), so these 90 – 100 degree days are a bit oppressive to say the least. I’m thankful for air conditioning and icy cold sangria on days like this. To keep my mind as chill as my body wants to be, I have concocted a melange of a playlist, not unlike my pitcher of sangria. I have the subtle smooth sounds of my main ladies, you know who are, Etta, Billie, Sarah, Dusty…I have the fizzy, sparkling sounds of some more recent music loves. And for the final touches, strawberry, peach, and mango slices of funky dance-your-pants-off-because-it-is-too-hot-for-pants tracks to make you smile.
