Summertime Playlist

Hi everyone!

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

of 75

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

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!
