Are you enjoying the last few weeks of summer before it’s back to the Berklee grind (or whatever school you attend)? We are, too. We’ve curated a cool list of summer throwback songs that you have to jam to before it all comes to a screeching halt. Play these at your last cookout of the summer. There’s something for everyone!
The Fresh Prince & DJ Jazzy Jeff – “Summertime”
This song is for every cookout, trip to the beach, or even on your way to a concert. It’s the summer season anthem.
Roy Ayers – Everybody Loves The Sunshine
Play this song as your cookout winds down and you’re enjoying the perfect sunset with friends.
Bill Withers – Lovely Day
Play this as soon as you wake up as an affirmation of the great day to come!
Kris Kross – “Jump”
Put on this tune when you want to get silly with friends and release some of that pent up energy.
The Bee Gees – Stayin’ Alive
Play this on your way to your final week at your summer internship. You did it and they loved it.
Frankie Beverly And Maze – Before I Let Go
Play this on the last day of summer… you don’t want to let the season go, but all good things must come to an end.
Seals & Croft – “Summer Breeze”
When you’re out on a date with that special someone, put on this tune to set the mood.
Sly and the Family Stone – “Hot Fun in the Summertime”
Play this during a nostalgic run through the sprinklers with your hometown buddies.
Prince – “Take Me With You”
This is for all of my motorcycle lovers who wear purple. Get out on the open road and play some Prince.
Stevie Wonder – “Higher Ground”
In light of this crazy election season we’re in, try to get to your higher self with Stevie before the summer is over.
