Everyone has that moment when you're desperately scrolling through your phone for the perfect playlist for the pool. Nothing feels right or everything is old or the wrong mood. It's tough. Here are 10 songs you probably don't know that you need to add to your summer playlist immediately. They sound like summer and make you feel like you're the main character in a coming of age film.

1. Coachella- lovelytheband

This makes you want to drive through the west coast with your head out the window. It just feels like summer and you can't not smile or sing along with it.

2. Hallucinogenics- Matt Maeson

I love Matt Maeson and all of his songs but this one is just perfect. His voice is so pretty it just puts you in a great mood.

3. Treacherous Doctor- Wallows

Perfect for tanning at the pool. You get to pretend that you have unique trendy music taste.

4. Slow Dances- Winnetka Bowling League

This song starts off a little more unique and funky then the chorus makes you just want to hangout and chill and look up exactly what Allbirds are. Helps you relive your wannabe-indy phase.

5. Strangers -Mt.Joy

This song just makes you think of music festivals- like a late night in Piedmont park at music midtown but instead of Mumford and Sons its Mt. Joy. The type of song that makes you feel alive and buy a crochet top.


This song would probably make some great remixes to play at parties, but the regular version is just fine with me. Its fun and makes you feel like you're in a movie in slow motion.

7. Bungalow- Scott Helman

This is probably in a sorority's philanthropy video during the travel section but for good reason. It makes you want to walk on the beach for miles and travel the world with only a backpack.

8. Left Hand Free- alt-J

This song might give you flashbacks to your quarantine Outer Banks binge, but it truly does feel like the beach.

9. Sour Patch Kids- Bryce Vine

This song somehow reminds me of shopping in a dark cologned Hollister growing up. It reminds me of early 2000's teenagers partying, and I love that.

10. Bashful Creatures- Hippo Campus

You just can't listen to this song and not be around water. I love this song because it just makes you feel like there aren't any problems in the world and just makes you happier. It's science.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
