However, for this feeling to be complete, you have to have just the right kind of music. These are just a few songs that give me the perfect summer feeling of freedom, whether I'm driving my car or sitting on the dock at the lake with my toes in the water.
Rather than re-generating the iTunes top 100 list, I tried to avoid putting too many super mainstream songs on this playlist in the hopes that it would actually help you discover some new songs. (Although I do have a soft spot for the Fergie song from the Great Gatsby - couldn't stop listening to it if I tried!)
What are some of your favorite songs of this summer?
