Our buddies at Idolator rang in Memorial Day with an unforgettable playlist (and salivating cover art above) perfect for soaking up a liquor-laced Monday off and grubbing on all things charcoaled. While we pour up the libations and get our buns ready, we’ll let ’em take it from here.
Memorial Day is sort of about remembrance, but mostly about getting an extra day of avoiding work or school which you probably won’t remember. And since this year it falls so close to the release of Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories, we decided to throw together a Memorial Day 2013 playlist comprising some of our favorite memory-themed songs.
There’s something for everyone here: 80s classics, past legends like Michael Jackson and David Bowie, current legends like Jay-Z and Madonna, pop queens like Demi Lovato and Adele. So fire up the grill (can we finally say warm weather is here to stay?) and fire up the 25-track playlist to cap off your three-day weekend here.
