FRENCHIE! took some time to make a playlist of his favorite summer jams. Check out his picks and listen to the playlist below.
I tried to really make a mix of stuff i like a lot now, and stuff from my past! Hope you guys agree!
The Summer Set – “Lightning in a Bottle”
The perfect song for a summer movie soundtrack. This reminds me of one summer, the year this came out. I was so chill the whole summer, kinda just went to the pool every day and spent a lot of time outside.
Rocket Summer – “Brat Pack”
So many of Bryce’s songs are so upbeat, but I think this one is the happiest. Its just about kicking it with your pals in your hometown.
Neck Deep – “Can’t Kick Up the Roots”
I read when they were recording the session was just called “Summer Jam”. Just reminds me of kicking it with you friends, maybe partying too hard.
Len – “Steal My Sunshine”
I grew up in Canada, and this song was like the biggest song ever when it came out. Was it as popular in America? This song is so sick; honestly it still holds up. Why were so many songs catchy and about drugs in the 90s?
Four Year Strong – “Wasting Time (Eternal Summer)”
Easily the best “break up at the start of summer” song!
Bomb the Music Industry! – “Unlimited Breadsticks, Soup and Salad Days”
This song always reminds me of the cookout with friends that I always wanted to be a part of. Eventually I made it happen! We had a huge 25 ft tall inflatable water slide.
Fall Out Boy – “Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy”
I almost didn’t put this on the list since the video is set in the Winter, and it has the word Autumn in it, but it’s so catchy and is a STAPLE on any mix cd/playlist I have ever had, especially on summer road trips!
Seaway – “Freak”
Fellow canucks! This song is such a throwback to my favorite era of pop punk, the early 2000s, where basically every song sounded like the summer!
New Found Glory – “Understatement”
This is one of my personal favorite “Get Amped for Warped Tour” songs. I go almost every year and I always have this one on deck for the ride.
Yellowcard – “Ocean Avenue”
Dude it has been a long time since there was a “rock song of the summer” like this song. It was EVERYWHERE!
Vacationer – “Good as New”
This song reminds me of the most chill summer times. Driving on the west coast highway, San Diego to LA.
The 1975 – “Chocolate”
I got a penny board last year and I ended up jamming this song a lot while I was skating, so it reminds me of warm breezes and Arizona tea at midnight.
Fight Fair – “Brain Freeze”
When this song came out, I was living in San Diego, where these guys are from. I just remember drinking so many slurpees that year and it was so rad. San Diego has the best weather on earth and I just remember me and my friends jamming this song on repeat.
Between You and Me – “Overthinking”
This is a new one, and I am so pumped about it. It’s full of nostalgic vibes, and I have been on it like crazy.
Sum 41 – “In Too Deep”
The video for this song is set at pool, and so it ALWAYS makes me think of pool parties. I can’t recall a good one where this song WASN’T playing!
Waterparks – “Stupid for You”
What is it about this song? It’s so damn catchy! I can’t think of anything but supersoakers and candy when I hear this band.
FRENCHIE! – “SMR GLRZ”
I think this one is self explanatory 😉 It’s just about summer, and that one person who makes it so memorable!
