Ever since high school, I always found a song that represented the freedom and excitement of summer. As I graduate from college in three weeks, I realized my time of a real summer is limited.
  1. Summer 2009-2011: The Great Escape by Boys Like Girls
    I had a tradition where I blasted this song on the first day of summer vacation.
  2. Summer 2012: Domino by Jessie J.
    This song makes me feel hopeful. Is that weird? It may be, but hopeful was the feeling I felt after graduating high school.
  3. Summer 2013: A Little Party Never Killed Nobody by Fergie, Q-Tip, and GoonRock.
    This was the summer that Leo's The Great Gatsby came out and this song was on the soundtrack. This was my "getting ready" song of every summer party I went to.
  4. Summer 2014: Turn Down For What by DJ Snake and Lil John
    Not one of my finer choices
  5. Summer 2015: I Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd
    I demanded that this song be played at every party I went to during Summer 2015. This song is just so FUN!
  6. Summer 2016: Cake by the Ocean by DNCE
    So technically summer hasn't started yet, but this song has summer written all over it. It's so loose and fun.
