it’s not summer yet. But with warm breezes coming along every now and then, it’s beginning to feel a little like summer (a very, very, little bit like summer, but that little bit is what I’m holding onto. Come on, we’re all keen to wear shorts with no jumper, aren’t we? Aren’t we!?).
In preparation for the oncoming summer (yeah boi!) I’ve made my summer playlist and I’ve been listening to it and it’s so wonderfully wonderful I can’t even.
So here are my top fourteen summer songs (though my actual playlist has about one million billion, because that’s how I roll).
- Famous Last Words (Jars of Clay)
“‘Love is so intrusive’ I thought I heard you say.”
2. Stay (Kygo feat. Maty Noyes)
“Why can’t I say no to the look on your face?”
3. Lose my Cool (Foxes)
“I’m caught on this dangerous ride, what we gonna do?”
4. On the Radio (Regina Spektor)
“You love until you don’t, you try until you can’t, you laugh until you cry, you cry until you laugh.”
5. In Tenderness (Citizens)
“It seems as if eternal days are far too short to sing His praise.”
6. Castle on the Hill (Ed Sheeran)
“And I miss the way you made me feel.”
7. Leave a Trace (CHRVCHES)
“You think I’ll apologise for things I left behind, but you’ve got it wrong. And I’m as sane as I ever was.”
8. Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison)
“Do you remember when we used to sing?”
9. Better Together (Jack Johnson)
“It’s always better when we’re together. We’ll look at the stars when we’re together.”
10. Love me Now (John Legend)
“I don’t know who’s going to kiss you when I’m gone, so I’m going to love you now.”
11. Malibu (Miley Cyrus)
“Hoping that you’ll stay the same and nothing will change and it’ll be us just for a while.”
12. I Keep Ticking On (The Harmaleighs)
“I feel my heart beat deep within my chest.”
13. The Last Time (Taylor Swift feat. Gary Lightbody)
“This is the last time, I won’t hurt you anymore.”
14. Blue as Your Eyes (Scouting for Girls)
“Is this falling in love, am I going insane?”
Get keen for summer (though spring is first up) (though the playlists would be pretty much the same, let’s face it).
