We’re approaching Memorial Day weekend, and you know what that means – BBQs, and every BBQ needs a great soundtrack.
There’s nothing better than getting together with friends and family on a sunny afternoon for a BBQ. The cherry on top is a great soundtrack, and for this week’s Throwback Thursday column, Myspace is helping you put together that soundtrack with 30 classic hip-hop and R&B jams.
The goal of any BBQ soundtrack is to keep people movin’ and groovin’, and keep the cursing to a minimum so the kids are all good. So put on your freshest pair of kicks, and get ready to crank up the volume, it’s time to get the season started right!
FYI – There’s a pretty cool bonus in the form of a complete YouTube playlist of every song in this feature at the end of the article.
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – Summertime
If you’re at a BBQ that doesn’t have this classic in its playlist, just leave. Lord knows what else they’re going to get wrong. They probably have something like quinoa burgers on the grill, and the blandest potato salad imaginable.
Shanice – I Love Your Smile
Breezy, happy, and with a hint of summer love, this hit will put a smile on everyone’s face.
Groove Theory – Tell Me
Who better to set the groove than Groove Theory? “Tell Me” is a timeless classic that provides the laid back vibe an outdoor gathering needs.
