Those Were the (Summer Fri)Days

Have you read Meet Me In The Bathroom? It’s an oral history of the early-’00s NYC music scene and is pretty entertaining even if it leaves out a lot of stuff. It really did feel like a special time, especially coming off the ’90s where there wasn’t much going on locally/musically. Living in Williamsburg at the time and being a music fan, it was hard to avoid. With that in mind, here’s a Summer Fridays mix with songs pulled entirely from that era (2000 – 2005). No cocaine necessary to enjoy it!


1. The Strokes – Barely Legal
2. The Rodgers Sisters – Chain Reaction
3. Calla – Strangler
4. Interpol – PDA
5. TV on the Radio – Staring at the Sun
6. Stellastarr – My Coco
7. The Walkmen – The Rat
8. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Date With the Night
9. Liars – Mr Your On Mr. Fire
10. Out Hud – On Life to Leave
11. LCD Soundsystem – Yr City’s a Sucker
12. The Rapture – House of Jealous Lovers
13. Diamond Nights – Saturday Night
14. Le Tigre – Deceptacon
15. Les Savy Fav – The Sweat Descendes
16. The Secret Machines – Nowhere Again
17. Ambulance LTD – Heavy Lifting
18. The Cloud Room – Hey Now Now
19. !!! – Me And Giuliani Down By The School Yard (A True Story)


There will be more Summer Fridays before the summer’s over, I promise.


  1. EXCELLENT mix (as per usual); love this era of NYC; however, the songs are in a completely different order as I'm listening and obviously it's TV on the Radio, not TV Girl.

    • oops…that is itunes' autofill's fault on tv on the radio. and the diamond nights song is "saturday night" not "girl's attractive."

      as to the song order, i just downloaded it and dropped it into itunes and it it came up in the right order for me. maybe you have it set to sort by something weird? you can always sort by track number.

    • ok i just realized how the printed tracklist was TOTALLY wrong. i'm gonna blame itunes for this somehow…my process for making these mixes is somewhat complicated and requires my to type in metadata by hand, anyway i think it probably played in the right order but i have reuploaded with corrections in the metadata etc.
