WGOM Summer Mix 2015 (OFFICIAL POST)

Okay, so, a couple of hiccups. I would like to note the following amends:
Algonad: I already had that song in my library, so while looking for the ones I didn't have, I told myself I'd throw that one in later. Never did. Sorry.
Zack: I originally couldn't find that Eskimeaux track and was going to get back to it, but never followed up. The Speedy Ortiz track was the last song to be cut, so if it's not too uncool, I'm just going to reintroduce that one.
Whoever's supplemental tracks I ended up cutting (still haven't checked who submitted what again): I debated between just adding the previously noted tracks, or to keep true to the original 90 minute idea. I came down on the latter.

Should you feel like it, I've added a ratings bar to this post. Let us know what you think of this years mix (and if you're saucy enough, tell us why below).

Anyway, with a slightly rejiggered lineup, here is the official WGOM Summer Mix 2015:

I've created a revised Spotify playlist (I also couldn't find the Vinny Cha$e song), however I can't figure out a way to get it to play in order (again, song order was heavily considered). In that case, one could conceivably check this out (EDIT: if you want a link to the mix in a way that can loaded the opposite of up, email me at my user name (no spaces or puncuation)/at\the domain of this here website.

*The methodology was pretty simple: The first pick on everyone's list got in, and after that, all other submissions went into a general pool. The selection process ended up being fairly impartial as by the time I finally got to listening to the songs, I had no idea who had submitted what3. Anyway, I went through the general pool a few times and rated4 each song5. All songs submitted totaled a bit over 2 hours; I figured an hour and a half was plenty. The lowest rated supplemental songs based on the flawed perceptions of the curator were redacted until the 90 minute threshold had been reached. From that point, songs were organized in a hopefully aesthetically pleasing sonic arrangement6.

1 AMR claimed summer was already over. The (un)official end to summer is Labor Day weekend. Duh2.
2 Actually, is that a foregone thing? I don't remember school starting before then, but spooks' kids are already going back? Is that crazy?
3 The list I gathered at the time of submission didn't note submitters, only which songs were automatically included. In addition, I pretty much listen to zero commercial radio, nor do I come across "contemporary" music in daily life, so if any of these songs are actually popular, I have no idea.
4 I guess I'd describe that my ratings process, as it applies to the theme of "Summer Mix", had a critical standard on par with the definitions of such intangibles as "MVP" or "pornography".
5 Ratings were tweaked as further listens warranted.
6 I'd like to think the flow is halfway decent.

Oh yeah, post yer 10s below.

Friday Music Day: Summer’s Coming? Summer’s Here 2014

By this time of year, I'm typically sweating what to put on the summer mix. My constraints are tighter than Philo's: all new music, hopefully with a clean version available or with the cussing not too prominent (I slipped in some $#!+ via Mikal Cronin's "Shout It Out" last year).

But this year, I'm not gonna stress it. If I don't get a summer mix made, I'm fine with it. I'll just listen to these two songs and the related album over and over if I want to.* I'll play the kids some instrumental dub or something.

*Does this mean I should check out Ke$ha?

I'll still listen to summer mix rec's though. What you got?
