It’s September. I hate to hit you with that harsh reality but I refuse to live in a delusional world, unlike many of my exes. September means the beginning of fall. I know, I know, it’s not OFFICIALLY fall yet. We have about three more weeks to cherish *~*SuMmEr*~* before diving into pumpkin everything, sweaters galore, and crisp autumn air. Now don’t get me wrong, I love fall because that means we are one step closer to the ultimate Holiday Season (start getting excited for my December Playlist – it’s gonna be lit as a god damn Christmas tree).
I don’t know about everyone else but I had one of the greatest summers of my entire life. I genuinely will look back at these past few months with some of the fondest memories with friends and family. Many drinks were had, lots of awkward dancing was on display, and I even sat in a trashcan while wearing camouflage-short-overalls…what more could I ask for?
OH, THAT’S RIGHT! SOME GOOD TUNEZ.
Summer 2016 was littered with banger after banger, song after song competing for the coveted title of Song of the Summer. I don’t have an answer as to what the true Song of the Summer 2k16 is but I’ve compiled a list of contenders. And by list of contenders for SotS 2k16, I mean the songs that I, Sam4ist, couldn’t stop listening to, singing in everyone’s face, or adding to every pre-game playlist. Included are some current chart toppers, deep cuts from A-Listers, and even a few throwbacks to an easier simpler time when my parents paid for my entire bougie life.
If you didn’t have the greatest summer of your existence, I hope this playlist takes you to a magical and joyous place. Pump up the volume, take a deep breath, and let the beats/melodies take control.
