There is something about summer that makes me want to drive with the windows down and the radio turned up (and I'm not even talking about the fact that my AC doesn't work, and my car makes noises that scare me). With the sun out, and the wind in your hair (and your ears), you can play the music loud enough to sing along at the top of your lungs (until you pull up next to someone- than you just mumble the words until either of you are out of direct view of the other person's side glance, and continue croaking your song without care)!
I'm so into this feeling, I'll even create a "summer playlist" in preparation for long drives in warm weather to keep me going. I listen to quite a variety of genres when it comes to music... so prepare for an interesting list...
25 (random) songs from my Summer Playlist:
- Edith Piaf: La Vie En Rose
- Amanda Palmer: Melody Dean

These are just a few of the many songs that I love to play in the summer and sing at the top of my lungs (which doesn't sound much like singing to be honest), or play in the background while watching the clouds float by.
Did you find any songs on here that you have on your own summer playlist? Or any songs you hadn't heard before seeing this list?
