Summer time is a time for outdoor patios, beach visits, tan lines, love and so many other invigorating experiences spent by the bonfire, dancing and having fun. There’s no doubt that along with those experiences comes a playlist that ranges from the 50’s right up to present day. Summer tunes are essential to any road trip or backpacking adventure and we have compiled a list that will keep your ears happy and your body wanting to move.
