Sorry I missed posting last week. It’s been awhile since I’ve missed one, but I have been so busy these past couple of weeks! I finally found the time to sit down and write a post just recently.
It’s summertime — a season of ice cream, trips to the beach, and movie nights with friends. I thought it would be a great time to share my summer playlist! This is a list of my go-to songs during the hot, sunny days of summer. 🙂
These songs are all clean. I mostly add songs with lighter subjects matters and fun, upbeat tunes.
checkmate // conan gray
‘Cause I’ve gotten tired of the games that you play
When you tell me you love me then you throw me away
So cry me a river ’til you drown in the lake
‘Cause you may think you’re winning but checkmate
This song isn’t really deep or anything, but it’s fun to blast in the car and it has a great beat!
high of 75 // relient k
And now I’m sunny with a High
Since You took my heavy heart
And made it light
I love the guitar in this song. I get major satisfaction when I play it when it’s actually sunny with a high of 75 that day, haha!
goodbye // echosmith
You’re riding paper airplanes
Can’t see the string
You cover up the poison, with poetry
You traded roses and left me sorry
My only grievance is a broken dream
This song is pretty much basic pop. I like the chorus. 🙂
firebird // owl city
We used to talk all night and not say a word
When I would hop into your red Firebird
And, man alive, we would drive just to drive around town
‘Cause in your car we understood and figured out
That everything changes
Basically all of Owl City’s Cinematic album has summer vibes. This song is about his girlfriend’s relationship with her older brother and the bond they have.
grandpop’s uke // forrest.
What a perfect afternoon
To listen to my Granpop’s uke
You know I never got to hear him play
But he’d be glad to see it put to use
I love this song — the music itself is really unique and the lyrics are sweet.
surf wax america // relient k
All along the undertow is strengthening its hold
I never thought it’d come to this, now I can never go home
This is a cover of the original Surf Wax America by Weezer. I’m biased towards the RK version because they are one of my favorite bands, but either song works. 😛
hot rod // dayglow
But we both know
The way it’s gonna go
In the same way
Maybe I’m not all that you thought
Light, cheerful tune and light lyrics. Great for the beach.
fiji water // owl city
And I’d say
“Hey, there is more to me than meets the eye
Let me be who I wanna be”
And I’d say
“Hey, I’m an oddity and that’s alright
Let me fly and follow my dreams”
I love this song. It’s very cheerful. The lyrics don’t make too much sense but it’s very personal to Adam Young himself. It’s a fun song!
There we have it! My summer playlist. I hope you guys enjoyed and maybe found some new songs to listen to!
