Whether you're planning to stay in town and enjoy your city's (probably) relatively empty bars and restaurants or have decided to venture off to a beach or a pool somewhere, there's one thing that everyone's Memorial Day weekend needs: a soundtrack.
If you're reading this that means you're probably already down with my style of playlist and my general musical vibes—so you'll probably like what I've thrown together here. In my opinion no summer playlist worth its salt should be without a few throwback and vintage tunes, so you'll find a few gems from Paul Simon, Earth Wind & Fire and the like, not to mention Ma$e, Janet Jackson and my go-to summer band, Vampire Weekend. And since I want to keep things fresh, you'll also find some brand new songs and perhaps some artists you haven't even heard of yet.
Maybe you'll be sitting in traffic on your way to Montauk, maybe you'll be barbecuing with friends in your backyard or camping by some peaceful lake in the middle of nowhere. Hopefully the below will help set the mood and carry you into the summer with happy, sunny grooves. Enjoy and have a great long weekend!
