Summer Spotlight: Barenaked Ladies

Barenaked Ladies is definitely a spring/summer time music to me. Part of it is the summer nostalgia goggles but I still like them.
I really love their tempo, it's mostly chill but still kind of upbeat and cheery.
They also had fun and silly lyrics in a lot of their songs. Just fun and cheery and happy. It's too bad the singer left. I really love these guys.
Unfortunately I can't embed any of these videos because Warner Bros. Record disabled embedding on their account.

Summer spotlight part 1 [Sublime]

It's summer time, which means it's time for summer music. I'll be posting at least one artist spotlight per week, and a kind of grab bag randomly containing music that embodies summer for me. It will mostly be ska-like music because I associate that with summertime.
Up first we have the obligatory.
Doin' Time/Summer Time by Sublime

Next are just a few other by Sublime. I used to hear Sublime all the time on the radio and in the car cruising around Fairfax with my mom and sister. Sublime has kind of become my summertime theme.

Santeria by Sublime

And what is summer without a little lovin'?
Caress Me Down by Sublime [Warning, explicit (and implicit) sexual tones]

In short: Sublime is great summertime music for me. Feel free to express what you think is your "Summer time anthem."

Internet Spotlight: Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew

Pirate rap!? You bet. This here is Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew.
This first song here has lots of suggestive lines, tons of innuendo. I mean, modern music + pirates is just asking for double entendres. Booty. Chest. Etc.

Every Day I'm Shufflin'

Lately I've been listening to this song by LMFAO called Party Rock Anthem. Even when I am not listening to it, it still plays in my head.
I've also inadvertently learned how to shuffle.

Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO
I love the video along with the song, and the black guy in the beginning reminds me of Louis from Left4Dead, not sure if it's intended but who knows.

This guy friggin' loves shopping

Wanna learn how to shuffle from LMFAO?
