Our last playlist was all about easing into Spring with a soundtrack perfect for soaking up chill vibes. This time we’re inspired by the 4th of July cookout, a grand celebration that gives the most gifted grillers among us a chance to truly shine. Every pitmaster knows that music is a critical component of a good July 4th barbeque. So while you focus on marinating the meats and chopping the vegetables, we’ve hooked you up with a playlist that covers it all – from BBQ standards to songs celebrating the joys of consumption.
Welcome your guests with a little Kool & The Gang as they arrive and settle in with a cold drink and a low-dose edible. Once the grill is fired up, have Chemical Brothers, N.E.R.D. and a couple puffs of a social strain accompany a friendly game of dominoes. In between bites of potato salad and ribs, your guests won’t be able to help bobbing their heads to classic tunes from Boz Skaggs and Michael Jackson. Then when night falls and it’s time for fireworks, some Joe Walsh and a hit of indica will help keep you in the moment.
