*some of my current favorites*
So with summer in full swing here in Maine (hey, the A/C is in the window...it's legit!) I have begun to craft my summer mix! With an hour drive each way to work and countless days spent at my mom's pool, I need to have a good selection of music...something most people don't realize is that I simply cannot have what we as a society call "silence" (as a music major I do not believe that silence exists) around me.
So I thought as something fun, I would share my work in progress with you guys, and hope you guys share some awesome suggestions as that's what makes a mix more fun!
Head past the jump to see what's going on in my playlist right now!

So far it's working out that I'm having a 70's/80's kind of summer which honestly I love. I think hair bands from the 80's should never have died haha. But I do like to mix more current things into this list too (just not Call Me Maybe, ok?)
I also recently acquired the new Grace Potter album (The Lion The Beast The Beat) which I haven't familiarized myself with yet, but I will and I'm sure that will have something to go on too. I also have a few songs I haven't added that I need to buy (Pour Some Sugar On Me, Dead or Alive, Paradise City...basically I want my playlist to be the originals of everything in Rock of Ages haha!)
So what are your ultimate summer songs???
