The heat index yesterday was 109+…eww. We are officially in the throws of Summer and the only way to escape the heat is with a bathing suit and a body of water. Whether you are hitting the beach, your local pool, or your backyard with a kiddie pool, staying cool in this heat wave is a must.
In addition to your waterfront cool down, don’t forget to keep your mind hydrated with some killer summer tunes. Do you realize how many songs about Summer there are out there? A lot. No worries, I’ve done all the work and have narrowed down my top 10 picks to download – immediately. Its the perfect blend of all musical genres old and new, and all boombox worthy.
Update that iPod, grab your Wayfarers, and enjoy.
