10 Songs To Get You Ready For Summer Running

Of the five best-selling songs of all time, three are seasonal: “White Christmas,” “Silent Night,” and “In the Summer time.” (The other two—if you’re curious—are Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” and Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock.”) Of all the seasons, winter has a distinct advantage on the musical front—on account of the holidays. But, summer is the clear runner-up. So, we’ve compiled a few uptempo tunes on the subject to propel you into the great outdoors.

The list warms up with a recent single from Weezer and winds down with a perennial from Sheryl Crow. In between there are club tracks from Sander van Doorn and Mr. Probz, country anthems from Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, and sing-along favorites from Avicii and the La La Land soundtrack. On the whole, it′s a list that mentions directly and evokes in general, the feel of season. To make the most of the warmth, just step outside and press play.

Weezer – Feels Like Summer – 88 BPM

Blake Shelton – Bringing Back the Sunshine – 139 BPM
