Got to see Atmosphere last night live from The House of Blues in Boston last night. Per usually they burned the place to the ground. I know artists like to hype up crowds by saying that “you are the best crowd we have had on our tour thus far”, but last night i really believed it. Atmosphere has always been one of those concerts that if the power went out in the building the fans could sing the rest of the set list from memory. It’s fun to sing along if you know the words and it’s also fun to get trashed and pretend you do, I’m a bit of a mix of the two.
The summer and music go together like a fine wine paired with an aged cheese. In other words, they’re made for each other. Everyone has their personal favorites, and the Average Nobodies are no exception. While certain songs work during any time of the day, there are those special jams that help get your day started and others that never fail to relax you. Here are our favorite daytime and nighttime summer jams.
Daytime Jam: Weezer – Island In The Sun
Classic jam from a classic band. This song had always been an ideal sunny day relaxation nation beer in hand type of song for me. I also have a sick obsession with playing songs over and over again, and on a hot summer’s day, this song is no exception. Plus it has the words “island” and “sun” in it, so you know it’s good.
Nighttime Jam: Dave Matthews Band – Crash Into Me
My favorite song from my favorite band. Just an absolute gem. I can’t think of a better song to wind down too after a long day at the beach. Literal music to my ears. If you can’t get down to Dave Matthews, then you have no soul.
Daytime Jam: Sublime – Santeria
The proof is tattooed on the inside of my right bicep. Sublime is by far my favorite band. They have a song for every kind of mood that I am in, and Santeria happens to be my “daytime summer” mood track. Just listen to this song and get lost in the day.
Nighttime Jam: Atmosphere – Always Coming Back Home To You
Atmosphere has some deep tracks, none deeper than “Always Coming Back Home To You”. Slug paints you a picture worthy of the silver screen on this one. Nothing is better than summer nights while getting lost in the Atmosphere.
