Summer is here and it’s time to roll down the windows and crank up the music. Whether you like cruising around all night, early morning beach trips, or trekking across the state on a road trip, you’re going to spend a lot of time in the car this season. The audio system you have was fine in January, with the windows up, but now you want the world to hear your new favorite song. So, you roll down the windows, open the sun roof, or drop the convertible top and realize it’s time for an upgrade. You’re not alone!
Summer needs its own playlist, so we made one to be the perfect soundtrack for the season. Whether you listen through headphones during your morning runs or through Bluetooth speakers at the beach, you can’t help but feel young and free when these songs are playing in the background. Enjoy!
Tell us what songs have you feeling the season in the comments below!
