The Friday Five: Summer Love Songs

It’s hard to believe that we’re already nearing the end of summer.  (Seriously, how is Labor Day next weekend?!)   Which means you’ve got just a couple weeks left to find (or enjoy) that summer romance.  Here’s the soundtrack to your summer love.

1.  “19 You + Me” – Dan+Shay
This nostalgic track paints the picture of a perfect summer romance.  From sweet tea kissin’ to that first dance in the sand, just listening to this song makes you feel like you’re spending a hot day on Myrtle Beach back in 19–.

2.  “Alice By The Hudson” – AJR
One of AJR’s biggest influences are The Beach Boys, and you can certainly hear it in this track.  “Alice By The Hudson” sounds like a modern day update of the ultimate summer love song, “Surfer Girl.”

3. “Young Love” – Jesse McCartney
We’re loving the retro-pop vibes of JMAC’s new album, “In Technicolor.”  A great love (or a great love song) will make you feel like you’re 17 again.

4. “Shower” – Becky G
This catchy track is everything you’d want in a summer romance, and will have you dancing in the mirror and singing in the shower.

5.  “Vacation” – Sam Hunt
Okay, so this is more of a love song to summer itself and an ode to being on vacation.  A reminder that you’ve got 2 weeks of summer left:  use them well.

Bonus: “Summer Love” – Justin Timberlake
