Nine Songs for Nudists

This Friday marks the third-annual Naked End of Summer Bash organized by amiable nudist club Florida Young Naturists. In our opinion, the Young Naturists have the right idea -- probably no better way to revel an end of summer blowout than going au natural. The group has lined up a plethora of activities for the nudie eager beavers headed to the main campsite at Loxahatchee Groves this weekend. A drum circle, bonfire, midnight skinny dip, yoga, volleyball, a trip to the Lounge for some sushi dining in the buff, and much more. Also included in the weekend of clothing-optional merriment are performances from the Funky Nuggets, the Soulbirds, Grassy Waters, Jungle Funk, and a couple of acts who have just recently graced our pages, Mike Mineo and the Leylines.

So in honor of tossing the skivvies aside and throwing caution to the wind, we compiled this collection of tunes we think would fit right in on a naturist's iPod (which will be hung around his/her neck, we imagine?), after the jump.
