Spring break playlist

Kate Penrod

Spring break is fast approaching and besides trying to remember to pack everything, one thing you’ll need to remember is a bomb playlist. Without a good playlist, your spring break may not live up to its potential. You need a list of songs that will get you pumped up to party on the beach or in your hotel room. The thing about a spring break playlist is that you just can’t put one genre in it. You need a bit of country, a bit of hip-hop and why not some Jimmy Buffet.

“Findin’ a Good Man” Danielle Peck | Danielle Peck

While this song may not pertain to men — considering it makes fun of them for the most part — this is a really fun song. It’s upbeat and gets people excited. Every time my friends and I end up listening to this song, it turns into a full fledged sing-a-long (or for some people, a scream-a-long).

“Here’s to the liars and the cheaters/And the cold mistreaters/To the mama’s boys who can’t make a stand/Here’s to the superficial players/The I love you too-soon sayers/If you hear me girls raise your hand/Let’s have a toast/Here’s to findin’ a good man”

“Don’t Worry, Be Happy” Don’t Worry, Be Happy | Bobby McFerrin

Sometimes spring break may not be the best time you could have. You may get into a fight with the people you’re on vacation with, or you may hook up with some random person and you’re not feeling too well about it after it happened. This song will pick you up in no time. It is impossible to stay sad or mad when you listen to this song. Plus the reggae tones of the song make it a very beachy must.

“Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style /Ain’t got not girl to make you smile/But don’t worry, be happy/’Cause when you worry/Your face will frown/And that will bring everybody down/So don’t worry, be happy (now)”

“Raise Your Glass” Greatest Hits…So Far!!! | Pink

This is the best song to get your group ready to go out. It’s upbeat, fun and is a great song to get you in the mood to party.

“So raise your glass if you are wrong/In all the right ways/All my underdogs, we will never be, never be/Anything but loud”

“Put On“ The Recession | Young Jeezy featuring Kanye West

When lying on the beach, why would you want to listen to some boring classical songs? This song is great mainly because it’s Young Jeezy and Kanye West together, which is just awesome, but also because this song keeps the mood upbeat much like many of the songs picked on this playlist.

“I got the money and the fame and that don’t mean shit/I got the Jesus on a chain, man that don’t mean shit”

“Bottoms Up” Passion, Pain & Pleasure | Trey Songz featuring Nicki Minaj

This is an anthem to many who are having a night out on the town. Trey Songz is amazing in many ways, and when you pair him with Nicki Minaj, well, I don’t think I need to explain how cool their music is.

“If I go get these bottles, we go alcohol insane/Callin’ all the girls, do you hear me/All around the world, city to city”
