Whether you’re taking off for the holiday or jamming out in your car on your way to a BBQ, I’ve come up with some of my favorite songs for your playlists you need to have.

10. Adele – Set Fire To The Rain

I don’t think there is anything Adele does that doesn’t sound amazing! Besides you can sing-a-long as you think of that summer fling that fell apart.

9. Maroon 5 – Payphone
Did you need another reason to like Adam Levine?

8. Train – Meet Virginia

Well first it’s a 90’s song, you can’t go wrong there. Second it’s a Bay Area band, and third it’s awesome.

7. Kelly Clarkson – Since You’ve Been Gone

As a past summer hit, I completely associate this song with driving around and singing with friends obnoxiously. I’m sure you can relate.

6. Fun – We Are Young

This might as well just be your theme song for summer. I mean hello the bands name is FUN.

5.  CarlyRae Jepson – Call Me Maybe

Even if you want to pretend you don’t like this song, there’s no way the infectious hit hasn’t somehow slipped out of your mouth at some point.

4. Calvin Harris – Feel So Close

If you can make it thru the whole song without dancing, then I applaud you.

3. The Ataris – Boys of Summer

This song just inspires summer nostalgia at its best, every one has to go back to a  summer memory for this song.

2. No Doubt – Just A Girl

Have you ever seen the movie Clueless? This song just reminds me of Alicia Silverstone taking off in her brand new jeep. Whatever!

1. Florence and The Machine – Shake It Out

There is no way you can drive to this without belting it out. Trust me I know, I’ve had a few strangers stare at me as I drive past.


Blind Melon – No Rain

Well I had to add this one as a bonus track, and honestly we couldn’t cut it down to ten. So enjoy!
