Joel’s Summer/Birthday Mix 2011 [Calvin Harris, LMFAO, Empire of The Sun, Lady Gaga, and more…]

By  |  21 Comments

Ahhh the wonders of summer.  A time for great tunes, butterflies, unicorns, puppies, summer flings, confetti birthday cakes, cookies and all your favorite things.

Maybe most importantly, its for Getting Nurdy and Party Rock Shuffling your faces off.

This special time of year begs for a soundtrack.  So, I thought, what better day to post something as monumental and life altering as my summer mix, then on the most important day of the year.  MY BIRTHDAY!
