9 Songs To Perfect Your Summer Playlist

Here you'll find a range of music from the purest pop to indie to maybe even a little country (give it a chance). These songs will blend perfectly into your car/workout/sad boi hours/getting ready/dance party playlists.

1. "Strangers" - Jonas Brothers

"Happiness Begins" came out recently so I find it only appropriate to include a JoBro song for your summer playlist. "Strangers" is one of my favorites from the new album. It's upbeat and catchy without being cheesy or kitschy. This is definitely one of those songs you can blare in the car with rolled down windows: a for sure win in my book.

2. "You're Still The One" - Ben Rector

This song was originally performed by Shania Twain, but Ben Rector released a live cover recently and it's absolutely beautiful. Ben has such a smooth voice that you won't even miss autotune and his backup singers almost steal the show.

3. "Never Really Over" - Katy Perry

When I saw that Katy had released a new song, I honestly didn't have very high of expectations considering the train wreck that was her last album. However, after that scathing review, I am pleased to announce that her newest single is a bop. It's the type of song that you can't help but dance to and her voice really shines through. I highly recommend a listen.

4. "See Through" - The Band Camino

"See Through" is the kind of song that can hype you up for pretty much anything. The chorus is fast enough to almost feel like a rap (and makes the listener feel slightly cooler than they are when they can sing the whole thing without getting tripped up). Like always, the guitar solo absolutely shreds.

5. "What If I Never Get Over You" - Lady Antebellum

I truly believe that Lady Antebellum can do no wrong. They aren't flashy or the first name you might list under modern country but they consistently put out great music under the radar. "What If I Never Get Over You" is no exception. This band has been around for years and there's something so nostalgic about their music. This song may not be as upbeat as the others, but it's a jam nonetheless.

6. "Drugs & The Internet" - Lauv

I've been a fan of Lauv for a while and this song is a little more experimental than what he's done before. It's a sadistic anti-Gen Z/Millennial anthem and I kinda love it. Some parts of it feel like a melancholy ballad and others are like an electronic dance song that they'd play at a club. It's a confusing mix but at the same time, it totally works.

7. "Find U Again" - Mark Ronson ft. Camila Cabello

This song honestly surprised me as I'm not really a fan of Camila's work. It's incredibly pop-y, but Ronson does a great job with production. The voice effects feel very electro-pop which I'm rarely mad at. Overall, its a solid song for the genre it's in and a fun one to add to a summer playlist.

8. "pink skies" - LANY

I struggled for a while to figure out what LANY song would fit the best for a summer playlist since they've been making such great music. "Pink skies" isn't new, but it's such a good song for summer. This is definitely one of those that works perfectly in the car, with the windows rolled down and a hint of cool in the air. You're welcome.

9. "Fortress" - Lennon Stella

Lennon Stella is one of those younger artists that I'm really excited about. She doesn't have a lot of music out but I've loved every song I've listened to from her. Her voice is borderline angelic and she mixes that with some really cool effects. Her music videos are unique so that's just another plus. Check her out!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
