Day 245--the summer mix CD

Since it feels like it skipped directly from winter to the early stages of summer, I want to make a mix CD with lots of willowy, breezy songs. The sort of songs that make you want to swing your hammock a little more as the sun sets. If (and this is a big if, since I still don't have my CD burner hooked up) I get the CD made, some copies may be made.

Any suggestions?

A few tunes I have on deck so far:
-"Summertime," the Fire Theft
-"My Blue Window," Elvis Costello
-"Hello Hawk," Superchunk
-"Summer Teeth," Wilco

I would say Andrew Bird, he has the whistle that is perfect for the summer time. Also...
-Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, "summertime"
-Ani Difranco, "both hands"
-Harrod and Funk, "Lion's Song"
-Nick Drake, "Saturday Sun"

these have been some favorites for me over the year, as far as sitting in hammocks and falling half-a-sleep as the music dances in the breeze...
