Sweet Summertime Reads: My 2013 Summer Jams

How's your summer going?  Things are definitely hot here!  This week's Sweet Summertime Reads is all about the music.  Though I listen to tunes year round, there's something fun about making a summer playlist.  Whether it's to listen to during a road trip, something to jam to by the pool, or simply a playlist to get you in that summery mood -- there is always a need for one!

I created my own Sweet Summertime Jams of 2013 on spotify that you can listen to here (if you have spotify).  Or you can click play from the list embedded below.  In case you aren't able to access spotify, I grabbed some videos of a few songs from that list that most definitely have gotten a lot of play times this summer.  Turn up the volume and enjoy!

[SAFE AND SOUND] by Capital Cities

[ROYALS] by Lorde

[I LOVE IT] by Icona Pop


[HELLO MY OLD HEART] by The Oh Hello's

[LIGHTNING TENT] by Wildlife

Be sure to check out Magan + Estelle tomorrow for more 
summertime jams & then again on Thursday with Tara!


  1. I totally agree -- summer playlists are the best! My hubby and I usually drive from BC to Alberta each summer to visit his family (about a 12 hour trip each way) and my favourite part is making our road trip mixes :). I haven't heard of any of the songs you recommended, but I always love new summery music, so I'm excited to give them a listen :)

  2. Love Somebody by Maroon 5 is one of my absolute favorite songs. Layla Greta and Jack love it too, so it gets heavy rotation on my iPod!

  3. Royals and I Love It have definitely been on playback this summer for me too! I've also been listening to Spectrum by Florence + The Machine a lot. That song is just so empowering! :)

  4. I have pretty much all of these songs on repeat (especially Safe and Sound). I think my anthem for this summer though is Iconapop -- I can't get that song out of my dang head!
