If My Summer Had a Playlist...

Anyone latch on to music in the summer? I love it.  Maybe it's from all the local live music going on or that we are outside listening to records/music in the pool or by the fire, but summer screams fun music. 

So if my summer were to have a playlist, these songs would be on it...

1. Springsteen - Eric Church ("melody sounds like a memory..." need I say more??)
2. Drunk on You - Luke Bryan ("drunk on youuuu.. high on summertime.." ahh, yes)
3. Even if it Breaks Your Heart - Eli Young Band ("keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart.." brings me back to soo many young summertime memories!
4. Come Over - Kenny Chesney ("I told you I wouldn't call,  I told you I wouldn't care.." and even more bad decision making of summer's past!
5. Pontoon - Little Big Town  ("party in slow motion out here in the open mmmmmmm motorboatin'" just about the ONLY thing to do in Summer!)
6. Fire and Rain - James Taylor

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I'd see you again

There is just SOMETHING about belting out those lyrics that I enjoy.  Love me some James Taylor. 
7.  Somethin' Bout a Truck - Kip Moore

Something about beer sitting on ice
After a long hard day makes it taste just right
On that dropped tailgate on a summer night
Something about beer sitting on ice

Something about a girl in a red sundress
With an ice cold beer pressed against her lips
In that farmer's field, will make a boy a mess
Something about a girl in a red sundress

YES PLEASE!! Ahh, how I love this song! I just want to grab a beer, make a bonfire and drink with my friends!
8. Don't Stop Believin - Journey  ("Just a small town girl living in a looonnnneeeeely worldddd!")  I think this song is on like every list I ever make, because Journey is amaaazing. 
9.  Bama Breeze - Jimmy Buffett

At the Bama Breeze
You can shoot some pool down there
You can act a fool down there
You can play it cool down there

At the Bama Breeze
You can drink some beer down there
Argue laugh and cheer down there
Pass another year down there

This is my favooorite Buffett song.  I hope he sings it for me in a couple weeks when I see him at Comerica Park.  And I can I just brag that our seats are on THE MOTHER EFFIN FIELD?? AHHHHHHHHH!!!!
10. Any song by Three Dog Night - We have a few records of theirs and I cannot come up with my favorite.  I looooove listening to them when we are hanging out in the backyard!
11.  Feel Like a Rockstar - Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw

Do you smoke, do you drink
Do you yell out, "Hank"
Do you fold it in your pocket
Do you lock it in the bank

Do you jack it up, or drop it down to the ground
Put the juice in the goose
Or the Coke in the Crown

Whatever makes you feel like a rock star
Yeah, you can kick it back chillin'
Or you can rock hard
You busted your ass all week
And now, it's your time to be
Whatever you wanna be
You can dress to kill, you can shoot to thrill
Try to seal the deal
Whatever makes you feel like a rock star

I generally feel like a rockstar all summer long. ;)

I love 70s/80s and Country and in the summer that is basically alll I listen to! Yay Music! 

What would be on your summer playlist?
