With summer on its way, the most important part is the music. Listening to your favorite songs while laying poolside, on a boat in the lake, or late night drives with your friends makes summer euphoric. With the past two years being more restricted with COVID protocols and all that went on, everyone is looking to the summer of 2022 to make up for lost time and make everything as “normal” as possible. What better way to get the summer days started than music? This playlist is a mix of top hits, pop music, throwbacks, and fun songs to listen to while enjoying your summer nights with friends.
