Yesterday was the summer solstice here in the states, meaning it’s OFFICIALLY the season of beaching, bonfires, and windows down filled drives. Insert all the sunglasses emojis here. Hallelujah, I know! While summer may not be my favorite season – it’s still something worth celebrating.
I wouldn’t be my music loving self if I haven’t been keeping my eyes and ears on the charts so I could bring you a playlist full of the hottest sounds of summer 2015. Every year I like making my bets and predictions and tallying up how I did after the three months are over.
Sun’s Out, Songs Out is a playlist that features a mixture of some songs that will dominate the charts and other songs that just encompass what I think summer feels like. Spanning my three main stomping grounds of indie, pop, and EDM I hope there’s something for everyone’s tastes.
There may be some choices not everyone will agree with. Such as me being completely over “Shut Up and Dance With Me” by Walk the Moon (I’m sorry it’s overplayed!) However, I’m sweet, so to compromise I delivered you just as ace of a replacement song by the same band. Annnnddd everything works out well!
To start it off I had to go with the song we all know is already the ultimate song of summer. It’s been decided and I had to mention it, even if I couldn’t include it on the actual playlist. Yes, I’m talking Miss T-Swift with her song “Bad Blood” – I just can’t resist. This song IS MY JAM. All I want is to hear this song when I’m in my car. Who I am? But ONLY the Kendrick Lamar version, otherwise I just feel cheated.
What song is your choice for summer 2015?
P.S. – Check out my Hello Spring! playlist, it may have been meant for a specific season – but it’s perfect for any time there’s sunshine in the sky.
Until next time,
