My 2018 Summer Playlist

Hey guys! I'd say we're about halfway through summer now so I decided to share some of the music I've been loving this summer.I'm definitely a self-proclaimed music addict so this is a post I've been wanting to do for  a while. Not all of these will necessarily have been released this summer but it's what I'm listening to. So without further ado, here's my playlist for the summer of 2018!

1. Everything is Fine - All Time Low

This song was released just at the end of my exams so it really gives me that feeling that it's summer! It's also super upbeat which is my favourite type of song to listen to during the summer. 

2. High Hopes - Panic! At The Disco

This is a part of Panic! At The Disco's new album 'Pray For The Wicked' and to be honest it was difficult to choose just one song off this album for this list because I love it so so so much! This song is really inspiring and is sure to lift your spirits.

3. Meet You There - 5 Seconds of Summer

I was initially disappointed at 5SOS' new album because it was pretty different to their old music but as I listened, it kinda grew on me and now I really enjoy it.

4. 2002 - Anne-Marie 

2002 is a really uplifting song that I can imagine being played over a montage of happy summer memories. I don't usually listen to pop music but I genuinely enjoy this song. (Also I was born in 2002 so this song gets extra brownie points for that)

5. New Light - John Mayer

I absolutely love John Mayer's music and this song no exception. It has a good beat and is the sound equivalent of aesthetically pleasing (if that makes any sense at all). Would definitely recommend you give it a listen!

6. Lost in Stereo - All Time Low

I adore this song and every summer I whip it out again for a great bop. It's great to dance to and is a song I regularly sing in the shower!

7. Don't Come Down - The Maine

Another one of my regular summer songs. This seems to end up on my playlist every summer because it just feels really summer-y to listen to.

8. Birthday - All Time Low 

I know, I know another all time low song! They're my favourite band so I couldn't just decide on one or two songs to include. Since my birthday is in the summer it's particularly appropriate.

9. Shotgun - George Ezra

This song has been number one in Ireland for a while (and still is as I'm writing this) and I can't say I don't understand why. I love the rhythm and George Ezra is an amazing singer which just adds to the overall atmosphere of the song.

10. The Ocean And The Sun - We The Kings

This is another montage background song. It's from their new album 'Six' and just like 'Pray For The Wicked' it was difficult for me to choose just one song off this album to include in this list but after listening to it I decided this was my favourite.

*Update: after posting this, I was informed that it was similar to blogmiablog's recent post. Although I had not seen her post before mine was written if you enjoyed this you might enjoy her post.*

  1. Love this!!!!!
    Think I read a blog post really similar last week!
    Everyone must be listening to music ��

    1. Yeah since posting this I’ve been told blogmiablog posted a similar post recently I will definitely go and link her post ASAP to avoid people thinking I stole it even though this was prewritten a while ago

  2. Such a great idea for a blog post! I have been loving anything by Anne-Marie, and my partner is constantly singing Shotgun at the moment- not as good as George Ezra I may add xx

  3. 2002 is one of my faves at the minute and I've always been a huge Panic! Fan so I'm glad they're making a bit of a comeback, some great choices here thanks for sharing!
