42 Songs You Need To Add To A Late Night Summer Drive Playlist

The best kind of drives are the drives when your windows are down, late at night and with friends.

Music holds a special place in my heart. I am a sucker for making playlists. When I got Spotify premium it was like my world had erupted. I not only found a better way to procrastinate but I also found music that helps soothe my soul. I literally have over 20+ playlists and will continue to make them!

Summer is the worst and best time for me when it comes to playlists, I have so many for all occasions. My favorite one is my Late Night Drives playlist.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

Dalliance to Glory

As an affair sinks in deeper, mother nature questions their love that could never be answered with certitude.


Dustless air,

Dustless footprints,

Padded on the green grass,

Do memories last that long?

A dreamy sunset blanketed our distracted ego,

It whispers beauty on wings,

The moon got envious and looked at us with a jaundiced eye,

He showed up a little early

A careless evening,

A crowded sky,

We walked down Canton Street with blooming love in our eyes

The queen of rays,

She gave us space,

Allowing us to rest in grace

Cold nights don't exist in our dictionary,

We might find heated love without trying

We drowned in breathless hugs,

Sweet little kisses,

We overdosed

A thing of love becomes my muse,

Your touch rings in my ear like jazz and blues

We find a hint of familiarity,

A common denominator,

In a melted pot of brass,

Raised by two different kinds of mass

It was a base of friendship and laughters that built us,

Universe then carries us through multiple levels of trust,

Though we live with a sheer screen of lust,

I count the unknown days in which you'd stop making me blush
