Playlist: Songs of the Summer

From Michael Jackson to Lana Del Rey to The War On Drugs.

Playlist: Songs of the Summer

This Sunday, my Songs of the Summer playlist story will be in the Inquirer Arts & Entertainment section. 

There you will find astute critical observations and compelling arguments as to why the playlist begins with Michael Jackson and ends with The War on Drugs, and includes the likes of Sam Smith, Parquet Courts and Iggy Azalea. You can read that story here.

Of maybe you'll think I've lost my mind, and wonder how I could not out your favorite Ed Sheeran or Nico & Vinz or Ray LaMontagne song on there.

In any case, you can't read all about that till Sunday. The 4th of July weekend is almost upon us, though, so let's set the music free early for your holiday weekend listening pleasure. The streaming 28 song Spotify playlist is embedded below.
