“Beach by day, Party by night” Playlist

Written by Maura

So, this weekend was pretty effing amazing. Amazing enough to combine 2 playlists. The weather was b-e-a-utiful and so my butt went straight to the beach, which means I needed some jams to add to the utter heavenliness that is a beach day. What better way to end a beach day then to get pretty and go out! While lacing up my dancing shoes, I needed tunes to get me in a booty shaking state of mind. 

Beach by day:

1. Summertime by Kenny Chesney. Because I am a shameless country fan and Kenny=beach.

Kenny Chesney - The Road and the Radio - Summertime

2. I Feel Home by O.A.R. The beach is a 5 minute walk from my front door..Jealous??
O.A.R. - 34th & 8th - I Feel Home

3. Life Is a Highway by Rascal Flatts. Because it makes me happy, and Cars is possibly the best Disney movie ever (dont judge me, I’m a kid at heart!)
Rascal Flatts - Cars - Life Is a Highway

4. Beautiful Day by U2. Because U2 is amazing, and c’mon, of course they would be on my playlist.
U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind - Beautiful Day

5. Scarlet Begonias by Sublime. Channeling the stoner surfer girl that I never became.
Sublime - 40oz. to Freedom - Scarlet Begonias

Party By Night:

1.Slideshow (featuring John Legend) by T.I.- Purely for street cred..makes me feel like a reformed thug.
T.I. - Paper Trail (Deluxe Version) - Slide Show (feat. John Legend)

2. That’s Not My Name by The Ting Tings. Because it’s almost at the level of Hanson’s MmmBop catchy-ness.
The Ting Tings - We Started Nothing - That's Not My Name

3. Just Dance by Lady GaGa. For several reasons. The obvious..makes me want to dance. I also see this song as a bit of foreshadowing of my night because I tend to lose my phone, and end up with a Dane Cook “fuck it, I just wanna dance.”
Lady GaGa & Colby O'Donis - The Fame - Just Dance

4. Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani. An oldie, but a goodie..and because I secretly wish I could be Gwen Stefani.
Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape - The Sweet Escape

5. Radar by Britney Spears. Because I like my celebrities with some craziness and Brit sure as hell has got it.
Britney Spears - Circus (Deluxe Version) - Radar
