Beat the summer heat with some fresh and cooling tunes.
Almost the entire continental Unites States is currently covered in a sticky blanket of heat and humidity that is making a lot of people very uncomfortable. But no worries. I've got just the chill you need to get that thermostat under control.
I put together an iMix compilation of ice cream inspired tunes that will help you to cool down a little during this summer's heatwave. Whether you like it organic, frozen, light, creamy or prefer gelato, I included a sweet flavor for everyone to enjoy. (I selected songs that are availabe on iTunes. Feel free to share your heat-beating suggestions in the Comments section. Click here to download the entire iMix compilation on iTunes.)
New Young Pony Club "Ice Cream"
New Young Pony Club cranks up the cool with this groovy, synth rock delight.
Sarah McLachlan "Ice Cream"
The Canadian singer's distinct vocals will send chills down your spine.
Taxi Ride "Ice Cream"
A slick tune by Australian boyband Taxiride from 1999. This has guilty pleasure written all over it. It is called "Ice Cream" for a reason.
The Time "Ice Cream Castles"
Title track from The Time's 1984 funk-pop classic. Song was co-written and produced by Prince who also contributes backing vocals.
KLT "Ice Cream"
Song by Kansas City rock outfit KLT that was inspired by a superhero spawned in the mind of Kenny Carter, the group's singer.
Coalishun "Ice Cream"
Breezy and tropic tune by Caribbean reggae group Coalishun. Just what the doctor ordered for a warm summer day.
Urchin "Ice Cream Van"
Splendid chill-out track with a cinematographic, trip hop quality to it. Turn it up, close your eyes and get carried away.
Pharrell "The Ice Cream Man"
When I think of Pharrell, I think of fly beats, soulful hooks and a spirited delivery. This track is all that. And of course, I'm loving Pharrell more than ever now that he signed hotter than hot Chester French to his Star Trak label.
JS "Ice Cream"
Sweet and sultry R&B jam with some nice vocal harmonies.
Barbara Cook "Ice Cream"
Vintage Broadway tune from the 1963 cast recording of She Loves Me.
