Last week I posted a list of songs that help keep things in perspective when you feel life is moving too fast. Today, I’m on a completely different path (fueled mostly by these songs that put me into this mood) and want to share with all of you the most upbeat songs the Internet has offered me over the past couple days. Play this music through good headphones or a good speaker system. The music is 99% guaranteed to bring you to life. And no, this doesn’t mean it’s all heartless dance music – this music has soul, but the nature of the instrumentals is uplifting. Full tracklist after the jump.
We’re about one month into summer so it’s only right for the Sunset Fam to give you a dose of our favorite songs of the season so far. We’ve compiled a list that’ll make you want to cruise to the beach with your windows down, with no worries in the world. Here’s our top 20 must-have tracks to get you going for the rest of this lovely season.
1. Netherfriends – Uptown Boys
There’s not much I can say other than this jam by Netherfriends is one of the coolest songs I’ve ever heard. If I could only transport back to college and just drive around campus blasting this song with my windows rolled down. Fuck it, though, I’m just going to put my headphones on, play this song on repeat, and strut around living like it’s a summer day every day. It’s easy to dream when you’re always high. – Lydia
2. La Plage – Rendez Vous
3. Sol – Jump In
To be honest, I go back and forth on Sol. Sometimes I think his content is lacking substance. But when it comes to a summer tune, sometimes the last thing you want is heavy content. That’s part of what makes this song so perfect. It’s light, airy, and catchy as ever. music is my baby, she drive me crazy – Lydia
