“This is the soundtrack to a strange party you will encounter this summer. It takes place on Pickwick Lake, which borders Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. You may not have heard of this lake. You probably live somewhere quite far away, but this is 100% a true story. It just hasn’t happened quite yet.” — Dent May.
So after you spend your hot summer day listening to Dent May’s categorically estival Do Things, pop on the soundtrack to the best night of your damn life on Spotify and get the play by play of the summer night from Dent May below.
Funkadelic – “Can You Get To That”
You’re en route to a party on Pickwick Lake via cruising your jet ski. The sun is setting.
Cybotron – “Clear”
You tie up the jet ski and walk up the dock to the plush lake house. Everyone here is beautiful.
Slave – “Just A Touch Of Love”
You are immediately ushered to a jumbo cooler stuffed to the brim with Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas. You shotgun one and pour the next over ice.
Crucial Conflict – “Hay”
A mysterious old man appears from the shadows and offers you a grape blunt. You have a toke and chat with him as if you were old friends.
Hot Stylz – “Lookin Boy (ft. Young Joc)”
A beautiful woman ushers you to the fog lit dance floor. You dance lasciviously.
Mary J. Blige – “Real Love”
Lascivious dancing continues.
Aural Exciters – “Spooks In Space”
The woman takes your hand and leads you through a hallway to a door marked “Keep Out.” She opens the door, and the two of you walk down an ornate spiral staircase
Ce Ce Peniston – “Finally”
The staircase opens up to a gigantic ballroom filled with hundreds of people dancing in minimal clothing and chugging Lime-A-Ritas. The crowd begins to chant your name as you enter the party.
Robin S – “Show Me Love”
The crowd gathers around you, reaching out to touch you. They recite in unison, “He’s here. The one we’ve been waiting for our whole lives.”
ESG – “Moody (Spaced Out)”
You’re getting kinda freaked out and decide to bolt. The beautiful woman you were dancing with earlier grabs you and says, “No. You have no choice.” You shake loose from her painful grip, and sprint back up the spiral staircase.
Sparks – “The Number One Song In Heaven”
The party upstairs is now empty except for the old man who offered you the blunt. He screams out, “We’ve been waiting on you for centuries!” You run down to the dock.
Brett Smiley – “Space Ace”
It’s now dawn. You fire up the trusty jet ski and escape into the sunrise.
