:) Oh, that was a fun assignment! Do you know all of those songs?


Heidi (heidihooo) | 10818 comments Also, let us know what ends up on your final playlist... You've got some great stuff posted in this thread! Several songs that came to mind were already posted (brilliant minds).


smetchie | 3994 comments "Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding (but only if Michael Bolton hasn't ruined it for him)"

Impossible!!!! That song belongs to Otis.


Stina (stinalee) | 750 comments I am going to make a large mix, so I'm planning on using EVERY FREAKING SONG that has been suggested. We need good tunes for the summer!!

I'll be adding some Sublime too, because it's impossible to have the sun on your shoulders and none of their tunes in your ears.

Nice!


smetchie | 3994 comments Heidi! Heidi!! I looked up a video of that Booyah Daddy and he has no shirt on and he rolls his belly! Which makes me laugh! And also my whole family because everyone but me can do that!


Heidi (heidihooo) | 10818 comments Smetchie!!! They must've just added that video because I couldn't find a Sweet Sweet Club video anywhere. That is hilarious. And I can do it, too... Don't be jealous of us. It just means you don't have a Santa Claus belly. :)
