They Reminisce Over You: Summertime Jams

Susan was the winner of a NARS Foul Play mini lipgloss!

"Summer Time" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince is THE Summer Jam. I feel like no matter where you are, you can sit back and relax listening to the song.
When I was in college working at a movie theatre, Joe and Therese- let us bring in our own mix cd's to jam to. Right there at Madstone ( and Mann Theatres) we were exposed to some of the best music ever.
Summer Time was definitely on my cd but I was also exposed to the Flaming Lips, Cornelius, Pizzicato 5 and Talking Heads among other genres of great music.
I will never forget when customers complained about our music choices..our selection was tame compared to what we listened to pre-customer "warm-up" music. "Warm-up", popcorn popping, sandwich making music was nothing but the west coast rap- Snoop Dog and the Dogg Pound, Ice Cube, Tupac and the West Side connect.
What a way to get a bunch of teens and twenty somethings ready to face Senior Citizen Sundays and the crowds of the 10am kid flicks and film festivals!
