20 Songs To Add To Your Summer Playlist That Will Make You The Designated DJ All Summer Long
Redd Angelo

It's summer, you're hanging out with your friends, and what music are you listening to? Literal trash. Let me be the one to change that! Not to diss your taste in music, but if you don't have these songs on your summer playlist then what are you doing with your life? And don't worry, there's a little bit of every genre mixed in to please all your summertime moods.

You'll definitely be the designated DJ with these songs:

1. "West Coast" - Coconut Records

Summer break separate you from a S.O, your friends, or family? This is a perfectly relatable tune to fit your feelings.

2. "These Days" - Wallows

I live for songs with a super chill melody just like this one. Also, fun fact: Dylan Minnette (a.k.a Clay Jensen from "13 Reason's Why") is the lead singer. I've never found him attractive until I watched a live performance of theirs. *swoons*

3. "New Light" - John Mayer

Let's be honest, we all know that John Mayer's music isn't limited to just one time of year, but there's just something about listening to him on a summer night that you just can't beat.

4. "Skin" - dijon

This song makes me want to walk on the beach, during the sunset, hand in hand with the boyfriend I don't have.

5. "Cruzin'" - Snakeships ft St. Rulez

Cruzin' while playing "Cruzin'"? It's such a perfect fit that it beats Cinderella and her glass slipper by a landslide.

6. "Sweetest Girl" - Wycleaf Jean ft Akon, Lil Wayne and Niia

If you don't know all the words to this early 2000's bop then don't ever speak to me.

7. "Crash" - Skizzy Mars ft Pell

The song literally starts off with "Dive in the waters fine..." obviously this is going to be a great summer song.

8. "Pine & Ginger" - Amindi K. Fro$t ft Tessellate and Valleyz

This is just a really chill feel-good song.

9. "Start Me Up" - The Rolling Stones

I feel like I listen to rock and roll 10 times more in the summer than any other time of the year. Blast this song on a sunny day with your windows down and you'll see why.

10. "Queen of Daydreams" - Third Eye Blind

Just by the band name you should already know that this song is going to be a good one.

11. "This Is How We Do It" - Montell Jordan


12. "Like I Do" - David Guetta ft. Martin Garrix and Brooks

This is the perfect summer dance song.

13. "Colours In The Sky" - Miami Horror ft Cleopold

This is currently my anthem.

14. "Boo'd Up" - Ella Mai

I've heard mixed reactions about this song but I'm very much here for it.

15. "High Horse" - Kacey Musgraves

This song is so upbeat and we all have someone that comes to mine when we hear the lyrics.

16. "Farsi" - Ariaa ft T-Pain

A great song to play at all your summer parties.

17. "I Like It" - Cardi B ft J Balvin and Bad Bunny

Everyone gets hyped up when this song starts playing.

18. "Girls Like You" - Maroon 5

*Pretends Adam Levine is singing to me"

19. "Sweet Home Alabama" - Lynard Skynard

Is it really summer unless you've heard this song at least 500 times?

20. "Margaritaville" - Jimmy Buffett

Oh Jimmy Buffett, the king of summertime beach music, how I love you.

In addition to this wonderful list of amazing music, below is where you can listen to each of them to check out how awesome they are for yourself. Hopefully you'll fall in love with these songs and will rock out all summer long!

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious.
