Summer 2012 Pop Music Playlist

Summer 2012 Pop Music Playlist


Summertime, and the living is steamy. I've got an annotated playlist for your listening pleasure in the Sunday Inquirer A & E section that runs from Bieber to Blur to (Azealia) Banks. That story is here. Below, there's a streaming Spotify widget version of list, with a few choice unfortunate subtractions and choice additions from the likes of the Pet Shop Boys and Kelly Hogan and Amadou & Mariam.

(It seems as if only the first seven songs on the list are appearing on screen, but if you click through, all the tunes are there. If there are any technological geniuses out there who know how make the whole thing read out, please let me know what a luddite I am. (Meantime if you click on this link and go straight to Spotify, you should be able to see the whole list. If you are a Spotify user, that is.)

Below the playlist are videos from select songs on the list, plus a bonus Barack Obama version of "Call Me Maybe." Pictured are Bethany Cosentino and Bob Bruno of Best Coast, whose "No One Like You" is on the list and who play Union Transfer on July 16.
