Summer bops are important. Critical even. The music can really change up the ~feeling, dare I say vibes~ of the beach day, the road trips, the lake day—whatever it is!! Here are a few of my favorite summer bops this sunny (and rainy in the afternoon, if we're being honest) season.

1. "Feelin Good, Like I Should"

The name says it all

If you haven't heard this group of songs, you are missing some serious dancing in your life! These songs are 100% sure to make you get up and groove (not a guarantee, but a promise. Don't make me break my promise, you better dance!)

"Heaven Falls/ Fall on Me"—Surfaces

"Sunday Best"—Surfaces

"Dazzle"—Oh Wonder

"1950"—King Princess

"3 Nights"—Dominic Fike

"Goodie Bag"—Still Woozy

2. "Drivin' To Hawaii"

Sounds of the North Shore (maybe I’ve never been)

These are a bit slower and perfect for relaxing in the sand or next to the pool! Or brushing your teeth, I tend to listen to my playlists then too, just saying.

"Drivin' to Hawaii"—Summer Salt

"Wade in Your Water"—Common Kings

"Weight of Sound"—Stick Figure Ft. TJ O'Neill

"Revvin' my Cj7"—Summer Salt

3. "Let's Hit The Skate Rink"

fourth grade here we come!!

Maybe it's just me, but I am always down for some circa fourth-grade tunes that remind me of those skate rink nights in the summer spent zipping in circles around the dark and slippy floor. Turn it up, Mr. DJ. Thank u.

"Low"—Flo Rida

"Burnin' Up"—The Jonas Brothers (duh!)

"Teenage Dream"—Katy Perry

"Baby"—Justin Bieber

"Impossible"—Shontelle

"Party in the USA"—Miley Cyrus

"Who Says"—Selena Gomez

4. "Gen Y Baby"

At least I think that's what they call us these days, don't quote me on it!!

"Generation Why"—Conan Gray

"17"—Youth Lagoon

"still feel."—half*alive

"Stuck"—The Aces

"Reflections"—MisterWives

"Uma"—Panama Wedding

"Loving is Easy"—Rex Orange County



I forgot to include him in any of these tiny mini playlists, but Jack Johnson is a staple in the summertime!! Actually, that's a lie. He's a staple anytime.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Meet My Cat: Cheshire, The Stray Turned House Cat Who Lives in Michigan

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
