7 Songs You Didn't Know You Needed For Your Summer

Seven songs you probably haven't heard that are so perfect for summer, that you need to listen to them right now.

Summer is officially in full swing, which means it's time to kick back, relax, and blast some perfect summer songs. Below is a list of seven essential, and not well-known, songs that are perfect for any summer. The songs are upbeat and can melt into wild moments dancing around with friends, cruising in the car, or a day out on the beach or by the lake.

So throw on your shades because you're about to be hit with seven songs that are too cool (or too hot) for this summer.

1. SteLouse - "Been Too Long"

This song is meant for the beach with a couple of friends or a significant other, just enjoying one another's company and soaking up the sun with a beer in your hand. I also recommend cruising down some fun and windy roads to this with a friend or two. The carefree beat of the song fits any summer vibe perfectly, as you'll lose yourself to a sense of nostalgia while living in the present moment (just listen and you'll see what I mean).

2. Alesso - "Falling"

Not only is this song so good that it will leave you dancing as amazing as the characters in the music video, it's perfect for a summer night party. The beat and lyrics are contagious, and you're going to catch yourself dancing and feeling yourself before you even know it (I mean, ladies, if you don't feel like you're the ish when you listen to it, then what is life?). This song is without a doubt meant for parties and fun memories, and there's something about it that screams that it's meant for wild nights under the summer sky.

3. ZHU - "Cocaine Model"

Okay, you know this is about to be an upbeat and catchy song if the artist's name is in all caps, you aren't sure how to pronounce it, and the title mentions some type of drug. The beat of this song is perfect for a day/night on the beach, lounging by the pool under a clear sky, cruising down back roads (bonus if they're along the beach), or dancing at a party (or even alone in your room). The song is infectious with good vibes.

4. Scooter Island - "Breezy"

This song is literally about enjoying time in the summer, living carefree and happy. So, you're basically obligated to listen to this song. The beat itself is just as chill as the lyrics so that you can have an easy, breezy summer. Want a song to close your eyes by the pool and relax or wiggle your toes too because you feel so carefree? You've found it. Let go of any worries, turn on this song, and let the summer take you.

5. Niki & The Dove - "Coconut Kiss"

What doesn't say "summer" like coconuts? Especially when coconuts are referencing a delicious coconut cocktail by the ocean. This song will having you reaching for your own Coconut Kiss cocktail so you can sip it on the beach or by the pool with your shades on and worries gone. You'll probably find yourself nodding your head, mesmerized by the beat. It's also a great song to cruise to, windows down, volume up; I can testify.

6. Photay - "Reconstruct"

This is another fun cruiser, but it is also great for lounging by the beach at sunset and sipping a beer, taking in the great view and good vibes. Or take it to the lake and blast it on the boat under the sunshine and bouncy waves. Also great for a summer party with a bunch of friends, this song starts off chill, but about a minute in, the beat kicks up even more and leaves you dancing on your feet and not wanting the summer to end.

7. Tomas Barfod - "Pulsing"

Okay, I love this song so much, that I made my own music video to it (not posted, it's for my personal use only). This song is insanely upbeat and contagious to dance to. This is another song that's perfect for a wild summer party, and not even a minute in, you'll start feeling yourself to this song, too, because it's so sensual and perfect for showing off your moves (ladies, you'll know what I mean when you listen to it). It would also be great to cruise down some back roads to at night with a significant other or sneaking away from friends (with your significant other) at lake house or beach house and finding your own spot to get lost together.

If You've Ever Been Called Overly-Emotional Or Too Sensitive, This Is For You

Despite what they have told you, it's a gift.

Emotional: a word used often nowadays to insult someone for their sensitivity towards a multitude of things.

If you cry happy tears, you're emotional. If you express (even if it's in a healthy way) that something is bothering you, you're sensitive. If your hormones are in a funk and you just happen to be sad one day, you're emotional AND sensitive.

Let me tell you something that goes against everything people have probably ever told you. Being emotional and being sensitive are very, very good things. It's a gift. Your ability to empathize, sympathize, and sensitize yourself to your own situation and to others' situations is a true gift that many people don't possess, therefore many people do not understand.

Never let someone's negativity toward this gift of yours get you down. We are all guilty of bashing something that is unfamiliar to us: something that is different. But take pride in knowing God granted this special gift to you because He believes you will use it to make a difference someday, somehow.

This gift of yours was meant to be utilized. It would not be a part of you if you were not meant to use it. Because of this gift, you will change someone's life someday. You might be the only person that takes a little extra time to listen to someone's struggle when the rest of the world turns their backs.

In a world where a six-figure income is a significant determinant in the career someone pursues, you might be one of the few who decides to donate your time for no income at all. You might be the first friend someone thinks to call when they get good news, simply because they know you will be happy for them. You might be an incredible mother who takes too much time to nurture and raise beautiful children who will one day change the world.

To feel everything with every single part of your being is a truly wonderful thing. You love harder. You smile bigger. You feel more. What a beautiful thing! Could you imagine being the opposite of these things? Insensitive and emotionless?? Both are unhealthy, both aren't nearly as satisfying, and neither will get you anywhere worth going in life.

Imagine how much richer your life is because you love other's so hard. It might mean more heartache, but the reward is always worth the risk. Imagine how much richer your life is because you are overly appreciative of the beauty a simple sunset brings. Imagine how much richer your life is because you can be moved to tears by the lessons of someone else's story.

Embrace every part of who you are and be just that 100%. There will be people who criticize you for the size of your heart. Feel sorry for them. There are people who are dishonest. There are people who are manipulative. There are people who are downright malicious. And the one thing people say to put you down is "you feel too much." Hmm...

Sounds like more of a compliment to me. Just sayin'.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
