Help Ken be the coolest Dad on the block…

Our friend Ken is in charge of music at his upcoming block party. He naturally turned to me for suggestions. I suggested Kenny Loggins. I’m a bit out of touch. Here is his e-mail, can YOU help him out?

“Every year, we have a block party. In the past, we have had live bands. However, last year I put together party mixes. It was challenging because I am not as tuned in to the latest music. But it is a great opportunity to come up to speed. Like last year, I discovered Van Hunt, a great R&B singer. So here is what I need from you. 10 song suggestions. Here are my preferences:

Newer songs – let’s try to stay in this century. But if you have an oldies favorite, let me know.

Summer songs – you know the songs that come out each summer and stick in your head (e.g. Gnarls Barkley). Extra points for the person that finds the summer song of 2007.

Party songs – songs that get you movin’ and grovin’. No sad ballads allowed. Except of course as an breather after a frenetically crazy extended dance mix.”
