Summer’s finally decided to come around and what goes better with warm weather and sun shine than fun, delightful music? The Amazing Canny Summer Playlist will turn your summer into a canny experience.
Whenever it’s scorching hot outside, I don’t feel the urge to spend hours in the kitchen cooking. That’s the exact moment when canned food is at its best! Opening up a can of beans for a chilled salad or a can of peaches for a refreshing snack honestly is all that can be asked of me in situations like that.
Once I’m done preparing my light summer snack, I’m headed straight for the balcony where I usually enjoy my meals. In order to get the most out of my summery after work dinner experience, I have got to have some nice music to go along with my meal. So in honour of the canned foods that make relaxing after work while also being fed possible, I present to you my Amazing Canny Summer Playlist:
Jamiroquai – Canned Heat
To me, this is the sound of summer. Light upbeat music is the perfect way to get your night started and put you in a summer mood.
The Streets – Empty Cans
However, if you’re not feeling so well, there’s always can music to fit those emotions as well. The Streets’ Empty Cans is about coping with a loss put in brilliant lyrics.
Major Lazer – Aerosol Can ft. Pharrell Williams
Graffiti painting is one of the ground pillars of hip-hip culture. And since there’s no graffiti without aerosol cans, there’s no getting around Aerosol Cans by Major Lazer and Pharrell Williams. This song has everything: a fantastic beat, a catchy chorus and lots of can references. What more do you need?
Maximo Park – Graffiti
If you love graffiti cans but not hip-hop music, Maximo Park’s indie-rock approach to covering this topic might be just perfect for you. I love them both and since Maximo Park is one of my personal favourites, I just could not exclude them from this playlist.
Angie Stone – Bottles and Cans
This song is the perfect ending to my playlist. After the fun ride we had on this rollercoaster, it’s time to slow things down a bit, take off our shoes, open up a delicious can of cherries and enjoying them to a nice glass of wine to this beautiful Angie Stone song. Way to end your day!
