{ PLAYLIST } YOUR 2017 MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND SOUNDTRACK

It's been a couple of years since I posted a Memorial Day Weekend playlist for you guys. (The 2015 one still holds up, and you can listen to it here.) Now that I look at it, I'm sorry but also not that sorry to report that there are three or four duplicate songs between these playlists because some jams just have "Summer is officially here!" written into the melody, like Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere" and Frank Ocean's "Super Rich Kids."

What with it being the first official (or unofficial, depending on how much you support the equinox) weekend of summer, I wanted this playlist to feel like the audible equivalent of drinking an ice cold fresh-squeezed lemonade while sitting on a dock with your toes dangling in the cool water. Or while imbibing a delicious seasonal beer, if that's your thing. It's got a lot of classic warm weather songs ("Brandy" anyone?) and some new songs from the likes of Haim, John Mayer, Harry Styles and Francis and The Lights. Oh, and since I'm going to be channeling my preppiest self in Cape Cod, the playlist is bookended by Vampire Weekend. (Deal with it!)

I've been listening to this collection of songs all week as I've put the final touches on it, and I have to say it really does give me those Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing vibes... You know, like after Baby carries the watermelon but before the showcase when she can't do the lift. Anyway, crank this up in your car, at a picnic, in house—wherever this relaxing long weekend takes you!
