Warm City Bliss

Okay Chicagoans, we can't really deny what we felt today. It wasn't an April Fool's joke. I checked the 10 day forecast, and we won't go below 50 degrees once. Plus, baseball starts next week. It's earlier than we expected, but I'm officially declaring Winter: D.O.A. (on the arrival of Sunshine!).

Last week I made a summer mix, as a sort of prayer for winter to end early. I wore short sleeves today, and will again tomorrow, and so will be listening to this city sunshine music in 70 degree weather. The mix is just under an hour, and sounds like a nighttime drive on Lake Shore Drive with the windows down. Those city lights harmonize. That breeze sings sweetly through our hair.

Please download and enjoy. The best way to listen to this music is to immediately burn it to a CD after the file has downloaded (the tracks are in a specific order, you'll see what I mean once you listen through), and play it in your car. But if you aren't in the mood to feel good, don't bother. Check the playlist:

1 Beach Boys - Do It Again
2 Delorean - Grow
3 Friendly Fires - Jump in the Pool
4 Here We Go Magic - Collector
5 Caribou - Leave House
6 CFCF - Big Love
7 Toro y Moi - Talamak
8 Beach House - 10 Mile Stereo
9 Cut Copy - Strangers in the Wind
10 Phoenix - Everything is Everything
11 Jonsi - Boy Lilikoi
12 Four Tet - Love Cry
13 Jens Lekman - Sweet Summer's Night on Hammer Hill
