Summer Music: Pat Benatar's Mixtape

Friday, July 02, 2010

We've been compiling a summer soundtrack for The Takeaway. We're calling this our summer mixed tape series. Who has given us their summer jams so far? MTV's Sway, and SNL's Fred Armisen, who used to play drums in the punk band Trenchmouth. This week, we've got a guest who surely can hang with the best mixtape auteurs: Grammy-winning 80's rocker Pat Benatar.  

For Benatar, it's all about what songs were playing on her transistor radio at the beach back when she was growing up in Long Island

Here are Pat Benatar's picks for summer songs: 

1. "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by The Beach Boys:

2. "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin

3. "Sir Duke" by Stevie Wonder: 

4. "Hey Boy" by Louis Prima and Keely Smith: 

5. "Burnadette" by the Four Tops:
