I think it's safe to say that in the summer, there is just a certain type of music that becomes prevalent in all of our playlists. You want something that you can bop to at the beach, in the car (hopefully on the way to the beach, let's be honest), or at that family cookout you're bound to be dragged to whether you like it or not. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll put you on DJ post.
Just in case, I've done some research into some sick songs that are floating around out there right now. I've found all kinds of songs from many different genres, because hey, we're not all interested in the same thing. One thing I have tried to do though, is find music that the average Joe might not necessarily be familiar with.
We all have our own taste in music, and while I think a lot of us enjoy what's popular and what plays on the radio, sometimes it can be fun to step outside of that comfort zone and check out something knew. This is how I've managed to find most of my favorite songs; venturing into my music-unknown.
Keep reading for an awesome list of songs that will impress your friends and your beautiful brain (trust me, you'll love these tunes).
