Hilltop Radio No.22

Forecast: Well, an Indian Summer.

If you thought the last playlist was too cute by having “Summer” in every title, wait until you see this one, every song is called “Indian Summer”. And while there are some covers, most are distinct songs. I had this songlist ready for a bit but it wasn’t until today that the weather finally co-operated.

Eugenius – Indian Summer
Dean & Britta – Indian Summer
Magnetic Morning – Indian Summer
Pedro The Lion – Indian Summer
Jesse Marlin – Indian Summer
Kelly Jones – Indian Summer
Friends Of Dean Martinez – Indian Summer
Beat Happening – Indian Summer
The Doors – Indian Summer
The Dream Academy – Indian Summer
Audience – Indian Summer
Dave Brubeck – Indian Summer
Martin Stephenson – Indian Summer
Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood – Indian Summer
Karen O – Indian Summer
Captain America (early Eugenius) – Indian Summer

Remember, it’s music buying season!

Hilltop Radio No.21

Forecast: Summer’s End

I hadn’t intended to create a songlist with “Summer” in every title, it just happened that the bulk of this week’s mix did.  So I removed the titles that did not have “Summer” in them and added a few that did. Goodbye Summer, I hardly knew ya’.

Heirlooms of August – Beautiful Summer
Bob Dylan – In The Summertime
Crooked Fingers (featuring Emma Pollock) – Sleep All Summer
Peter Wolf & Neko Case – The Green Fields Of Summer
Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat – Cruel Summer
Superchunk – This Summer
Palma Violets – Last Of The Summer Wine
Tear Talk – Summer Junction
Of Might And Main – Summer To Decide
Seapony – Late Summer
The Pastels – Summer Rain
Jonathan Richman – That Summer Feeling
Evie Sands – One Fine Morning
The Turtles – On A Summer’s Day
Electric Light Orchestra – One Summer Dream
Pink Floyd – Summer ’68
Al Wilson – Summer Rain
Nancy Sinatra – Summer Wine
Frank Sinatra – Summer Wind
Percy Faith – Theme From A Summer Place

Remember, no matter what the season, always be buying music!
