The sounds of summer

Every spring, I compile a giant playlist of music for the sunny days ahead. The songs put me in a good mood all summer, and when the weather turns cold, I have a souvenir of the good times I had (and okay, songs to weep to when I'm wrapped up in eight blankets and desperately wishing January would be over already).

Here are some of my favorites from this summer's playlist, in a handy 8tracks mix for you to enjoy.

Track list:
1. "Anna Sun" - Walk The Moon
2. "Numb Bears" - Of Monsters and Men
3. "Equestrian" - U.S. Royalty
4. "Werewolf" - Fiona Apple
5. "Runaway Train" - Brandon Boyd
6. "Gonzo" - The All-American Rejects
7. "Red Hands and White Knuckles" - The Bravery
8. "Hey Joe" - Jimi Hendrix
9. "Stubborn Love" - The Lumineers
10. "Paralyzed" - Rooney
11. "Bliss" - Blaqk Audio
12. "Oh, Love!" - William Beckett
13. "MoneyGrabber" - Fitz and the Tantrums
14. "Breath Of Life" - Florence and the Machine
15. "Hacienda Motel" - Pickwick
16. "Motorcycle Drive By" - Third Eye Blind
17. "Mind Eraser" - The Black Keys


  1. So glad you included some Hendrix! Classic summer music for me.
