July 4 Party Playlist


Here’s my lovingly crafted 4th of July playlist. Ideally, I’d have put the songs in some kind of order that makes sense, but I didn’t. Instead, I shuffled a few times until I thought it looked okay. I also wasn’t cool enough to correct errors, such as “kid cudi” listed as the song title. Lazy ass.

It’s heavy on MGMT and LCD Soundsystem, but that’s just how this summer is going, yo.

You can listen to some of this stuff on Grooveshark. I really wanted to put a Grooveshark widget here, but wordpress.com won’t let me.

Update: I can’t put the Grooveshark widget here, but I can provide a link. You can listen to the whole playlist here. Awesome! (If that link doesn’t work, try this one — sorry I’m not better at this, but I can’t figure out how to log out of Grooveshark to check the links.)

The list is after the jump, but it’s really ugly. Here’s a pdf, which is annoying but it looks better than the list.
