Turn up Labor Day Weekend With a Fiyah Cookout Playlist

The last cookout of the summer deserves a play-list that spreads the love helping people make lasting memories with family and friends. Right next to the call for delectable dishes, grilled perfections, and chilled beverages is the need for a good cookout playlist. The ribs taste better with good music

.Look to the 1970s for a Lit Cookout Playlist

The cookout playlist needs to include a mix of music for everyone. This means, elders, get some oldies but goodies, mom and dad get their cuts, and the kids get some updated tunes. Throw in some Frankie Beverly and Maze, because it’s customary and the soulfully Black thing to do. Same goes for Stevie, Al, Teddy, and Gladys. Must-haves on the list, always and forevermore.

The Cookout Playlist Must Include Line Dance/Hustle Songs 

Get everyone up. Guaranteed to make Auntie put the potato salad down. Uncle hand the burger spatula over even. A few good line dance songs are cookout staples. The cookout playlist should include hustle or line dance songs like Cupid Shuffle or Cameo’s Candy. Made popular in cities around the country and in Black movies, the line-dance gets many people to the dancefloor who might otherwise remain seated waiting for a dance invite. 

Put some House on the Cookout Playlist  

Since Black families are diverse and Netflix’s Pose is trending, the playlist may include some

Deep Soulful House for the Children. Ballroom in the Queer community differs greatly from the Ballroom of Chicago steppers. Both offer different parts of the music scene and Black culture. A good cookout playlist has House. House music all life long!

Soul Train Lines and Cookout Playlist go Hand-in-Hand

Dance-offs and Soul Train lines are staples of Black functions and several may happen during the event. Black folks are talented and there’s always someone in the family who should be kicking it with Ne-Yo and the dance crew on Step-Up Highwater. Live video feed from the most liked end of summer affairs is likely to include food prep, pre-guest arrival adult beverages, and lots of fun throughout. A good cookout playlist is key. Footage won’t be in short supply either. Sometimes folks get 15 minutes of fame and more from backyard cookout footage that goes viral. There’s sure to be some fiyah on the cookout playlist.  

Memorable Summer Endings Include a Sweet Cookout Playlist

People know they are the dopest of hosts when folks return. Some pop in for a few. Others, arrive early and stay late. The music sets the tone and a good cookout playlist is diverse, offering something for all guests, and is never boring. Here’s to a safe and happy Labor Day, 2019.
