Mixtape Festival’s 2013 Summer Playlist: New Kids On The Block’s Picks

by

Donnie loves Kool & The Gang’s “Summer Madness,” calling it “the coolest song ever!” Plus, it was sampled in the first pick.

Jordan is feeling “Blurred Lines” by his boy Robin Thicke.

“Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch is a nice shout-out to Donny’s brother Mark.

Jordan thinks Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” is definitely the song of the summer.

Donnie remembers listening to Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” while cruising with the boys back in the day.

LFO’s “Summer Girls” makes Jordan root for the fellow Boston boy band.

Donnie simply thinks “The Boys Of Summer” by Don Henley is “just a great song.”

“Summer Nights” from the Grease soundtrack takes Jordan back to his childhood.

And naturally, the boys have to rep NKOTB! They chose their song, “Summertime.”
