Childhood friends Lauren Ohler and Demi Pappas tread water in the blue sea of Santorini.
Summer is all about the senses. The crisp feeling of flipping through a new beach read. Sunlight drenched afternoons that turn into cool summer nights. Shouts of laughter and splashes that echo from a nearby pool. The excitement of an upcoming trip and the difficult packing decisions that invariably follow.
This Memorial Day weekend effectively kicks off summer, and it’s not summer without music. We here at The Buzz – the summer interns, that is – took it upon ourselves to create the ultimate summer playlist, one that can accompany your next backyard BBQ, lake trip, pool party, or car ride. It can be played while you’re soaking in the sun, getting started on your next indoor project, or playing pickleball.
Buzz summer interns Demi Pappas, Naama Machol, Grace DeJong, Raigan Clay, and Izzy Barcenas worked to compile a buzzy summer playlist. Listen to Summer Vibes (Buzz’s Version) here.
What makes it a summer playlist? For starters, it’s happy: it’s music that will make you smile and make you want to dance in that adorably silly, unencumbered way. The playlist is all inclusive, with the genres ranging from pop to country to oldies and even Encanto. And most importantly, in this magazine, we only play (Taylor’s Version).
