Going to the beach is the ultimate summer activity and is something you can really enjoy. However, it’s way better when you have some tunes to keep you company. A playlist is the perfect way to rock out to the jams without having to suffer through those pesky and annoying commercials. With so many songs out there, it can be hard to choose what to put on your playlist. Start with these beach worthy songs and you’re time at the beach will be totally memorable.
1. “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince
Even if you aren’t a kid of the 90s, you can still enjoy this totally fresh summertime tune. It’s catchy and will be one you want to jam out to anytime you slide into your summer bikini. You will totally identify with the lyrics as you enjoy your time in the sun.
2. “Summer Breeze” by Seals and Croft
You might not totally understand the lyrics of this song, but there’s no doubt the tune and melody will have you in a summertime frame of mind in no time. This 70s classic is definitely going to earn a top spot on your beach playlist.
3. “Wipe out” by the Surfaris
You know this one, don’t you? The catchy tune and that laugh makes this a song that everyone will gather around to hear when you turn it up as you lay in the sand and soak up the rays of the glorious summer sun.
4. “Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams
Looking for something a little bit slower? This tune is still a great beach song but is also reminiscent of what summer is all about. You simply cannot go wrong by adding Bryan Adams to your playlist. You will not be sorry.
5. “Summer Nights” by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John
This Grease classic is perfect for getting into the feeling and mood of summertime. Even if you don’t get up and dance in the sand, this tune is a great one for rocking out to while you lounge at the beach with your margarita.
6. “Cool for the Summer” by Demi Lovato
You are cool for the summer so this song makes perfect sense for your beach playlist. The lyrics are marginally appropriate for kids so be sure you play this one with caution or you might have some questions to answer or some nasty looks from parents at the beach.
7. “E.M.O.TION” by Carly Rae Jepsen
If you’re looking for a bubbly and fun song to put on your playlist, this is the one for you. It will get your toes tapping and is so much fun that you won’t mind putting it on repeat while you enjoy the day.
8. “California Gurls” by Katy Perry
Chances are you’ve heard this song many times and it’s perfect for putting on your summertime playlist. Again, I might not let my kids listen to this one, but if it’s just you and your girls, get ready to rock it out.
9. “Standing on the Sun” by Beyonce
This remake is wonderful for summer and will probably become your new favorite after listening just once. If ever there was a perfect song for a beach playlist, this is the one. You’ll feel like you’re on vacay, even if you’re just a few miles from home.
