Long Weekend Playlist: Golden Oldies


“So, OK, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all”, but there’s something about the music of the 50s and 60s that’s just lacking in music today. And in good times and bad, I love to break out these oldies to put a smile on my face; they just ooze sunshine, milkshakes and happy wiggles. On a long weekend, there’s no better way to kick back and enjoy a freebie day. Here are my song picks to make up the perfect Golden Oldies playlist. Throw it on while painting your toe nails in the backyard, enjoying a glass of wine while cooking a gourmet feast, or cruising through the city with the convertible top down.
