The best songs for your summer playlist


Summer is the season for spending time with friends and family. Getting out of work early, going to the park, the beach or just a BBQ at home. What songs make you think of summer?

  1. You got some great songs on here, and some I also never have heard. I will definitely be checking them out!

  2. This list has really made me smile, because although it’s new music it feels like a cool cousin from the early noughties. So many of these tracks will be played on REPEAT at all the Freshers nights, getting everyone on the dancefloor.
