“Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be insane.”
― H.P. Lovecraft
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
There are a lot of great things we could say about remix artist Viceroy, but we might as well stick to the basics: he’s the master of summertime electro-pop music. He’s put out a bunch of remixes that all make me wish I could spend the rest of my life by a pool or ocean. Today’s remix is of Maroon 5‘s “Love Somebody” and it does just that. It’s reminding me that I just got back from a 2-week vacation and that having a desk job can really suck sometimes (though I really do love what I do). But god it would be nice to be back by the water jamming to this song. Damnit, Viceroy, I hate you and love you for this.
