This winter may have lasted until mid-April, but the cold has finally been banished. Summer is upon us, and so far, it’s been a real scorcher, hitting 20 degrees above average. This is music to my ears. I love hot, sunny weather because it makes everything feel calm and relaxed.

As far as I’m concerned, the best thing to do in summer is grab some friends, head to a lake, a pool, or a yard with sprinkler and do nothing. Soak in the sun, pop in the water to cool off, have some barbeque, and grab a couple popsicles to finish off the day. But no party, no matter how low-key, is complete without a soundtrack, so I’ve put one together for the next time you’re having some sunshine and good times.

If you have any songs that you love to listen to on sunny days, leave them in the comments!
