“Moving On,” Roosevelt
I discovered Roosevelt on a “French funk-disco” playlist a couple years ago on Spotify. Ever since, he’s been one of my must-plays at any cookout or party.
“A-Punk,” Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend is my favorite band, and 99% of their songs make me feel like it’s a party. “A-Punk” is one of the best.
“Bonnie and Clyde,” Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot
Nothing is cooler than this song. You could be cooking on an apartment balcony in Queens or the deck of a mega yacht, and it fits.
“I Can’t Be Satisfied,” Muddy Waters
Muddy Waters might be my most-played solo artist of all time. This is the Delta blues, but it somehow puts me in the best mood.
