If you're anything like me, the majority of your summer is spent down the shore. When at the beach, my favorite thing to do is lay out in the sun and listen to music. Whether you're listening on headphones, or you brought a speaker, here are 10 songs that are perfect for relaxing in the summer sun!
10. Florida Kilos - Lana Del Rey
Maybe it's just me, but something about this song just reminds me of the beach. It has a really great beat to it, and Lana's voice will transport you to another generation.
9. Wild Thoughts - DJ Khaled ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller
I'm not a huge fan of today's pop music, but I'll make an exception for this song. This is the hottest song of the summer, and I've had it on repeat for the past couple of days.
8. Hard Times - Paramore
I absolutely love this song. I've been listening to Paramore for years now, and I'm really digging this new direction for them. Hayley Williams' voice is incredible, and I could never grow tired of listening to her sing
7. Anna Molly - Incubus
I just recently discovered this song while browsing through YouTube, and I love it! I've heard of Incubus, but never heard any of their music until this song. Definitely good for listening on a hot summer day.
6. Seaside - The Kooks
Obviously this song had to make it into a beach playlist. This song is very chill, and it's perfect for laying out in the sun and relaxing.
5. Luna - The Smashing Pumpkins
I could listen to this song over and over again. Something about it just makes me feel at peace, which is ideal for suntanning, I assume.
4. Beware of Darkness - George Harrison
My absolute favorite song from George Harrison's solo career after The Beatles, this song talks about the importance of remaining positive and how sadness can only eat you alive if you allow it. This song really resonates well with me.
3. A 1000 Times - Hamilton Leithauser
I hate to be a stereotypical hipster, but I heard this song before '13 Reasons Why' made it popular. Such a good song, and the music video is cute too so definitely give that a watch as well!
2. Surge - Em Hariss
I adore everything about this song. It's available on Spotify and (obviously) YouTube, and it's actually based off of 'Fifty Shades of Gray!' Em Hariss is so talented, definitely give her a listen!
1. Sour Candy - Melt
My boyfriend, Patrick, actually showed me this band, and I'm thoroughly obsessed with them. And the best part, this musical group is made up entirely of teenagers! Give this song a listen, their talent is out of this world.
