Summer is around the corner and people are ready to be in these streets! Memorial Day is this weekend and there are a few songs that make you want to get the grill going. Add these hits to your playlist if you don’t have them already. In no particular order let’s get started.
- Before I Let You Go: It’s a black song and the song of EVERY summer. This Maze ft. Franky Beverly CLASSIC has a special place in the Black American psyche. As soon as you hear the chords to this song startup it’s always followed by an “ahhhhh” along with people getting off their lawn chairs to hit a little two-step.
- Summertime: When you hear this Will Smith ft. Dj Jazzy Jeff track you KNOW summertime has arrived. This 90s classic is played on every radio station once we enter the summer solstice. It’s the smooth flow of this Grammy Award-winning song that puts you in a mellow state to kick off the relaxing season.
- Murder She Wrote: It doesn’t matter what nationality you are, once this song by Chaka Demus & Pliers hits the speakers you automatically become Caribbean. This reggae classic is a MUST for any backyard party or “bash-ment/fete” as said on the islands. All you need is a Shandy drink and a smooth waistline to enjoy this tune.
- Electric Slide: The song says it all. “You got to do it, it’s electric boogie boogie oogie” If you haven’t danced all night at a party this one will get you to the dance floor. It may not be your favorite song but once you see your friends and family members get up to dance including your great aunt Sherly it’s only right you partake in the line dance.
