Playlist Thursday: Vacation Songs That Make You Think of Being Someplace Else!

Another Thursday another edition of...

Pavement Runner's Playlist Thursday!

Here's how it works (if you missed the first one I posted):

I have to choose three songs following the specified theme, this week being...

"Vacation Songs"


Songs that make you think you're on vacation! (Or someplace else! Mmmm beach!)

With that in mind...

I have to follow this simple format:

Something Old: These will be songs that are at least 5 years old. I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.
Something Current: These will be songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: These will be songs that are not typically heard on the radio and may be by artists you’ve never heard of or considered running to. This is the wild card category, can be old or current.

Ready for my list?!

~Something Old~

Artists: The Beach Boys
Song Title: Kokomo

Side Note: The Beach Boys bring me back to my childhood days! My brother and I absolutely loved this group so much we played the cassette (yes I said cassette! lol) until we wiped the tape clean! It wouldn't play any more so my Mom had to get us another! A few years ago, I bought myself The Beach Boys Greatest Hits...I still love them!

Quotable: "That dreamy look in your eye give me a tropical contact high"

I must say, it was hard just picking one of The Beach Boys songs, so I'm going to sneak in a few others here and here!

~Something Current~

Artist: Faber Drive
Song Title: *CaNdY* Store

Side Note: I just heard this song yesterday! I got all excited about it because it had all sorts of *CaNdY* love intertwined within it. It made me smile. I thought it was sweet....literally ;)

Quotable: "A little like reeses fallin' into pieces." oh and "I know your love is such a sugar rush and I can never get enough" <-- sweet!

~Something to Consider~

Artist: LFO
Song Title: Summer Girls

Side Note: I haven't thought or heard of this song in so long but yet it brings back so many summer memories! I can totally rap to this entire track! I need to dig up this CD...I mean, I need check my iTunes playlist ;)

Quotable"You love FUn dip and Cherry Coke, I like the way you laugh when I tell a joke"

Questions FU You...

1. Whatd'ya think of my song picks? Did they bring back any memories?
2. What are some of your favourite vacation or summer songs?

Stay Tuned FU More On *CaNdY FiT*


  1. Ahh, LFO...back in the day I was IN LOVE with that song. Thanks for reminding me of them...Old School! :)

    1. Me too! I never wore Abercrombie and Fitch, but I would take it if I had one wish.

  2. Loove kokomo and summer girls! BOTH make good summer/vaca songs! For summer girls, my friend and I used to argue over whether he likes the color purple AND the food macaroni and cheese, or the color "purple macaroni and cheese". Silly, I know, but that's the song :)

  3. I'm not ashamed to admit that LFO is actually on my running playlist. Good picks!

  4. I love Kokomo!! I haven't heard that song in ages.

  5. What a great playlist! Series of Dreams by Bob Dylan always makes me think of going on road trips.

    Fun playlist! :)

  7. Love this list! I used to love LFO way back in middle school! Used to love that song :)

    you and DJ JAZZY JEFF make me think of summer :-)

  9. The idea for this category was brought on by THAT Beach Boys song... nicely done.

    And that CANDY song is perfect for you. LOL.
