Tunes For The Sun

Anyone who’s been here long enough would have groaned at the title. But, it’s a definite thing of mine that has wormed it’s way into far too many of my blog posts; summer songs. Songs made for summer. Songs made to be listened to on a bright sunny day. Songs that you play while driving down to the beach. Songs for blasting when your friends put you in charge of the music during a relaxing pool day.

I go on like a broken record, but there’s something about those type of songs that make you feel as though the sun is shining, that make you crave a freshly cut mango or a swim in ice cold water, even if it’s exactly 11 degrees outside and it’s been raining for most the of the day (looking right at you Melbourne). So in this post, I’ve decided to compile a list of my favourite summer friendly tunes for you. If you happen to fall into a daze of summer and just have to find some more, there’s also a playlist on my Spotify (priyafrancis, one word, it’s linked for your convenience, plug, plug, plug), where you can find over 500 more! But anyway, let’s get into it.
