Summer has a certain vibe to it. For us Canadians, it’s like the vacation season because no matter what you do, it has a vacation feel to it. We spend so many months indoors or limiting our outdoor activities because of the cold. Just being able to spend extended time outside in warmer temperatures – doing whatever – makes you feel like…
Of course, nothing adds to the vibe of summer like music. Again, it doesn’t matter what you are doing. Music and summer just go together and elevate each other like a little sprinkle of salt on a peanut butter cookie (honestly – try it). You can be just driving with the windows down, or having a BBQ with family and friends, or just sitting alone enjoying the weather – it doesn’t matter. Music is the cherry on the summertime sundae.
The songs don’t even have to be about summer. I mean, that helps but it’s the vibe of the song that makes it perfect for summer. When I think of the songs on my summertime playlist, I think of songs that I want to hear when my hair is blowing in the wind and I feel the heat of the sun on my skin (while wearing a good SPF of course). Regardless of what’s going on in your life, for that moment, you feel carefree, empowered, and loving the life you’re living.
The summertime playlist here has a little bit of everything but hopefully some/all of these songs will either: a) get you singing along; b) get your fingers snapping/toes tapping; c) get you up and dancing (or doing some serious seated shoulder dancing); or, d) all of the above.
What do you think of our summertime playlist? What songs are on your summertime playlist? Let us know in the comments and we might add them.
Enjoy your summer. Stay hydrated, wear SPF and play music that makes you wanna get your groove on.
