September heralds that bittersweet back-to-work / school feeling, and while this 25-track Boat Floaters playlist marks the start of the month it should be viewed as a celebration of the memory-making summer just gone.
With luck you will have enjoyed a month or two punctuated by exploring new places, late nights, love – and loads of dancing. September’s selection is laced with amorous songs, such as You’re My Solution, Love Vibration, Why Can’t We Live Together, and Don’t Tell Me Tell Her, as well as the classic Sweet Stuff, by Sylvia Robinson. Who can resist “a crib with a water bed, and a bottle of wine on ice”?
There are tunes that will make you jump up and dance, including the Envee Disco Mix of Yesu Yan Yan, fleet.dreams’ EKG, and more Toy Tonics goodness in the form of Japanese Woman, Delirio Italiano, and Sabrosito Tool.
Plus there are plenty of old gems, like legendary afro harpist Dorothy Ashby’s Little Sunflower, and D.R. Hooker’s Forge Your Own Chains. With almost two hours of music to nibble on, with luck there will be plenty that is to your taste.
Yours in music, Ollie (Boat Floaters)
