Summertime! Laying by the pool, going for a drive or on the rooftop deck – whatever I’m doing this summer there will be music. A few songs will always be summertime classics like Summertime by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince and Saturday In The Park by Chicago, but every year I collect new favorites and make a summer playlist. This year’s list is particularly good – music mostly from 2015 and 2016, with a few really good older songs. 21 songs to soundtrack your summer sixteen. Your summer begins now.
*I tried to find the clean versions where available, but there are a few songs where I didn’t.
21 Songs To Soundtrack Your Summer Sixteen
Let’s start off with some groovy, sort of chill songs.
Now let’s pick it up the pace a bit. If you were just chair dancing before, get to your feet. I restricted myself to only two Disclosure songs on this list but all of the albums are great.
My summer playlist wouldn’t be complete without hip-hop. We’ll start slow before getting all the way crunk. Oh and by the way, if you haven’t heard Chance The Rapper’s album yet, I insist that you do.
If you want this playlist, you can find me on Spotify. What’s your soundtrack to summer sixteen?
