GonzoSummer by Ashley King on Grooveshark

Summer has officially begun and to get it started right we at GonzoGeek will be sharing our summer playlists over the next few days. So put on your sunglasses, roll down your windows, and jam with us at GonzoGeek!


1. Do You Wanna Date My Avatar, The Guild
For me summer means I get to re-subscribe to World of Warcraft without school interfering with precious raiding time... Priorities. This song and the 
web-series it comes from are both a lot of fun and relate to the WoW experience... and this song is catchy as all hell. And the video is great too.

2. Get Up Get On Down, Turbo Fruits
Catchy? Check. Fun? Check. Sounds great while driving? Check. Yep, that pretty much fulfills what I want in summer music. A lot of the Turbo Fruit's music perfectly embodies summer so if you like it definitely check out more of their work.

3. I Hate People, Jemina Pearl
Do you hate people? Do you dream of a summer love with someone else who hates people? Well this song may very well become your new theme song. It is certainly mine and one of my favorites to drive around to. And it features Iggy Pop! And the video is pretty cute too.

4. The Car Song, The Cat Empire
A perfect song about procrastination to enjoy being able to do nothing to this summer. If there is a song that could perfectly sound like what summer feels like this is it.

5. I Love It (feat. Charli Xcx), Icona Pop
Okay... this song has become giant and I love it. Perfectly upbeat and carefree for dancing away on summer nights. Just try to listen to it without smiling and wanting to leap around dancing and kicking stuff... or is that just me? Whatever... *kicks stuff*

6. Out Of This World, The Detroit Cobras
I wish summer was filled with retro beach parties like in vintage Coke advertisements... this cover of a 1960's Gino Washington song certainly hearkens back to those days with a new and fun punky attitude. Fun, fun fun!

7. Love Career, Rotten Apples
I just love her voice. And I love this song. Fun for blaring in the car and singing along to loudly. Just try not to get this stuck in your head.

8. Miss Me When I'm Gone, The Mojomatics
Everyone needs a summer song with some harmonica, right? No...? Is that.. that's not a thing?
....well it should be. If you don't have one give this one a shot. It is bouncy summery fun.

9. 19-2000 (Soulchild remix), Gorillaz
I've never really been a giant Gorillaz fan but I have recently become absolutely obsessed with this remix. I just imagine strutting down a boardwalk in slow motion with sunglasses on to this song. Don't you?

10. You! Me! Dancing!, Los Campesinos!
I feel like this song perfectly embodies the spirit of awkward dancing at summer parties. What more could you want? Los Campesinos! have a lot of fun songs that feel like summer... and the singer kind of sounds like Pinky. If that's what you're into. I definitely am.

Bonus track!
God Only Knows (Bioshock Infinite Cover), The Beach Boys
No summer playlist is complete without the Beach Boys... and I've chosen the BioShock Infinite a cappella version of "God Only Knows" performed in game by a barbershop quartet.


So that is my playlist, more to come from other staff members in the next few days! Feel free to let us know some of your favorite summer jams as well!
