Whether it’s a budding romance, a summer fling, or you’re finally reunited with your long distance partner, here’s a playlist to celebrate summer love:
I’m Alive – Michael Franti & Spearhead
If the song wasn’t lively enough, the music video is a explosion of color and energy. If you like doing happy dances, you’ll like this song.
Kick Drum Heart – Avett Brothers
This upbeat, heart-thumping track is my favorite era of Avett Brothers
Simple and Sweet – Jon Bellion
I’m a sucker for songs with a twist at the end, and I love the pause in this song – that’s when you crank up the volume before the drop with your windows open on a hot summer day.
Come Dance With Me – Frank Sinatra
Perfect for all the lovers out there born in the wrong decade
Prosthetic Love – Typhoon
A mix of romanticism and realism song by my all-time favorite band, “Prosthetic Love” is a raw, authentic expression of what it means to be dependent on someone.
Coffee – Miguel
If you want a more sensual summer lovin’ song, Miguel is the answer. Smooth, sexy, and a good cup of coffee – what more could you want?
Back to You – Twin Forks
This song is everything a summer song should be – upbeat, danceable, and carefree.
Summer – Calvin Harris
Yes, this is pretty mainstream electro-pop, but it’s also basically a summer fling dance anthem.
5 Years Time – Noah and the Whale
This lighthearted song is a reminder that you don’t always need to plan everything in your love life, but just have fun and enjoy the moment.
