Danger Mouse Provides The Holiday BBQ Soundtrack

Here in the U.S., we're heading out the door for a long Independence Day Holiday weekend. Thoughts turn to backyards, apartment porches or parks, with mondo grills or tiny hibachis, along with coolers of one's favorite beverages. Now all you need is a soundtrack.

Producer extraordinaire Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton of Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells fame) has come up with a summer soundtrack of 147 (count 'em!) records for your listening pleasure. The fine Irish music site Nialler9 took things a step farther and looped the entire list onto YouTube.

So point your speakers out the window, click and turn it up. Happy 4th, everybody.

Oh, and here's our favorite Independence Day song to add to the list. In the immortal words of Mr. Chuck Berry, "Let It Rock!"
