I hate to say it, but August is quickly coming to a close. That means the scramble to squeeze out the last bits of fun for the summer is upon us. Whether you are leaving your hometown friends for college or just dreading back to school, these seven songs are essential as you wrap up a summer of beautiful sunsets, hot beach days, and late night ice cream runs. So, gather around the campfire because summer is not over just yet...
1. These Days- Rudimental (feat. Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen)
Sitting around the campfire is the perfect time to look back on all of the wonderful days that have made this summer so special. You are going to miss these days whether you realize it or not.
2. Life Changes- Thomas Rhett
This sweet song is also very reflective on how fast time flies. You can't stop things from changing, no matter how much you wish you could stay in this moment forever.
3. I Don't Care - Acoustic- Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran is always a good idea. Acoustic versions of Ed Sheeran are an even better idea. You may feel like you have heard this song on the radio a little too much (although personally I don't think I could ever get sick of it), but hear me out on this one and listen to the acoustic version too.
4. Together- Us the Duo
There's no better place to be than together, especially when the summer is coming to an end. Back to school means being a lot more busy, so sit back and enjoy being with the people you care about. You may not be seeing them as often as you were able to in the summer time.
5. I Got You- Jack Johnson
Appreciate the people around you with this relaxing song. Jack Johnson's voice is like a lovely lullaby, but make sure you don't fall asleep! We have more songs to listen to!
6. Daylight- Maroon 5
It may be your last night of the summer. Hold on tight before it is time to let go.
7. Memories- Shawn Mendes
Break out the tissues, my friends. The night and the summer are coming to a close. Look back on all of the laughter and spontaneous adventures of the summer but also know that more adventures lie in your future.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because you have this wonderful campfire playlist. :)
