Our Summer Playlist

Our days are FILLED with music! Whether we are driving around in the car or cleaning up or hanging out on the patio, there is always some kinda jam playing.

I did try going music free, just so that we had some quiet time. But the girls would have none of it!
"What happened to the music?"
"Play the Spirit song, mommy!"
"It's soooo quiet!"
When I tried explaining that we were having some quiet time, Sophie just suggested we listen to some "quiet Josh Groban songs". Insert eye roll.

Each time I play a certain song I like to think I'm creating a soundtrack of our lives. It might sound funny, but it's true! Which is why I'm sharing our list of Summer time favorites plus the perfect activity to do while listening to said music! 

Julia's theme, Alexandre Desplat- A must-listen while you are preparing a garden (or market) fresh salad.

Fun, Fun, Fun, Pharrell Williams- The best song to kick off a summer road trip.

 Feeling Eiffel, Michael Giacchino- For curling up on the porch swing with a glass of wine and a great book. 

 My Moon, My Man, Feist- To play while you serve your dinner party guests something from a casserole dish, preferably while swaying precariously in time to the beat.

Fly Me to the Moon, Frank Sinatra- For those dusky-late night picnics.

California Loco, Ludwig Goransson- Best to play when you actually need to clean the house but you'd rather be at the beach. I listen to this song quite often as you can imagine, given that I live smack dab in the middle of Alberta...

La Vie en Rose, Louis Armstrong- When it's raining outside, and you have no where to be except dreamland.

Wasted Time, Keith Urban- Only the best for when you have to pull weeds, cut the grass, or you know, waste perfectly fun time doing yardwork.

Do You Believe in Magic?, The Loving Spoonful- This song is perfect for any montage-worthy activity.  Activities like learning a secret handshake on a dock, piercing your long lost twin's ears, going over said twin's house blueprints. Wait a minute...

Brighter Than the Sun, Colbie Caillat- I love listening to this while splashing around! Equally as good in a kiddie pool as in the Mediterranean...hmmm okay maybe its a tiny bit better on an Italian coast, but it is a fun song!

What's your go-to Summer jam? Let me know!
