July’s Music Mindblower

Beach Blanket Boom Box

Remember when you loaded your sweet boom-box up with 8 D batteries and lugged it down to the beach so that you could listen to your favorite jams while getting your Hawaiian Tropic SPF 4 tanning oil covered body just one more shade darker?  Ah, those were the days.  With Summer now in full swing, I can’t help but look back on those beach days when all you needed was a towel and some tunes.  In honor of those lazy days in the sand, sun, and surf, I have put together a few playlists with some of my old and new favorites.  Enjoy and share some of your favorites, too!
