Tuesday Ten: Memorial Day Playlist

Tuesday Ten: Memorial Day Playlist
Memorial Day weekend holds a special place in my heart. Not only does it mark the official beginning of summer, it also means barbecues with family and friends, beach bonfires, and wearing white from head to toe. I also associate long summer weekends with great music. So, I recently asked my friend, DJ Jilly Hendrix, to put together a Memorial Day playlist for me. These tunes are the perfect soundtrack for this upcoming weekend. Check out Jilly’s top 10 summer songs below, and then click here to give her complete summer playlist a listen.

  1. Duke Dumont – Need U (100%) feat. A*M*E
  2. Daft Punk – Get Lucky
  3. ColeCo – Emotions
  4. Vampire Weekend – Diane Young
  5. Disclosure- You and Me featuring Eliza Doolittle
  6. Chris Malinchak- So Good To Me
  7. Fleetwood Mac- Dreams (Walter Sobcek Remix)
  8. Lee Foss Featuring Anabel Englund Reverse Sky Diving
  9. CHVRCHES – Recover
  10. Parachute Youth – Can’t Get Better Than This

What song reminds you of the beginning of summer? 

I’m always looking for more new music suggestions.

    How about Memorial Day holds a special place in your heart because it’s a day to remember fallen soldiers and all of the things that our government puts our military men through. And be thankful for everything they go through for us.

    Just sayin :)

    But Memorial Day is not really about music and sunbathing… Great playlist, but let’s not forget the true meaning of Memorial Day. We should be thankful and grateful for those that have fought for our freedom and have defended it. I’m a little disappointed that you didn’t throw that in, out of respect at least.
