After ten long months of school, summer is finally here. No more tests, no more teachers, no more homework – just sun and relaxation. What better way is there to relax (or get pumped up) than with music? With the help of other TP staff members, here is the ultimate summer playlist for every occasion:
Relaxing on the beach:
These songs are perfect for laying out on the sand after spending hours in the ocean. They’re all upbeat and have a feel-good vibe, which are staples of a summer playlist.
Every Little Word – MNEK
Fine By Me – Andy Grammer
Love on Top – Beyoncé
I Choose You – Sara Bareilles
Partition (feat. Iggy Azalea) [Ryan Calhoun Remix] – Beyoncé
Driving with the windows down and music blasting:
Likewise, these songs are also upbeat. However, they’re more dance-y and some of them have EDM and/or dubstep influences. Just imagine a full car of friends singing along while you coast down the highway. Perfect.
Young and Beautiful (Kaskade Remix) – Lana Del Rey
Rather Be – Clean Bandit
Replay – Zendaya
Untouched – The Veronicas
XO – Beyoncé
Boom Clap – Charli XCX
Chilling at night with friends:
Finally, these songs are perfect for sitting outside around a firepit or on the beach around a bonfire. They’re slower with powerful vocals, yet keep that summer-y vibe that I love so much.
I See Fire – Ed Sheeran
Nirvana – Sam Smtih
Latch (Acoustic) – Sam Smith
Lullabies – Yuna
Roller Coaster – Luke Bryan
Two Lips (Acoustic) – Hoodie Allen
