The Sounds of Summer

Next week is the summer solstice. It might be time to put together a fun playlist of songs that reflect the joy and happiness that summer brings. Here is a playlist of 81 songs that you can choose from. I recommend an interval profile. Many of these songs are mainstream (rock, pop) and are shorter, so they are perfect for 3- to 5-minute efforts using a short 2-minute surf song as recovery.

If you have any more suggestions, please leave them in the comments below. I’ll make sure to update the playlist for next year.

Happy Summer!
