Friday Five: On Repeat

It's summa time, y'all.

And everyone knows summer requires some pretty fantastic music. (Indoors, of course. You all know how much I hate nature.)

Because it's Friday, here are five songs of summer I have on repeat. (Ok, so they aren't all summer-related, but all of them make me sing along and dance, so there.)

Little Big Town - Pontoon
While I may be in the city now, I was raised in the podunk backwoods country. On the lake. This lake.
And it was delightful. I was in the water all.the.time. You could always find me either being pulled behind a ski boat or hanging out on the pontoon. It's one of the only two things I miss about my hometown (the other being chicken biscuits and fountain Cokes with crushed ice in a styrofoam cup from The Trailer). If you've ever spent any part of a summer on a boat in the middle of the lake, you need to listen to this song.

Marc Broussard - Must Be The Water
I am not from New Orleans, but I've spent my fair share of time there. I discovered Marc Broussard sometime in the mid 2000s and always find myself foot tapping and knee slapping along with his music. Try it. You'll be bouncing around in your chair, too.

Florence + The Machine - Shake It Out
I don't really have an explanation for this one. I'm a fan of Flo'. I'm also a fan of shaking it out. So there's that.

Eric Church - Springsteen
Eric Church is my boyfriend. He doesn't know that yet, but who cares about the details? Moving on. Who doesn't have memories of a July Saturday night? As much as I say I hated growing up in my hometown, I can't deny some of the memories made on July Saturday nights in that mountain town. Also, who doesn't love to "whoa oh oh oh oh" along with a song? I know I do.

J.D. McPherson - Fire Bug
I DARE you to listen to this song and not immediately start foot tapping and head bopping. You can't do it. If you can, then we can't be friends because you have no soul and hate things like happiness and cheese.

What do you have on repeat this summer?


  1. Love love love Pontoon, Shake It Off and Springsteen. Shake It Off is one of my favorites I listen to over and over again, but I don't know why either, haha!

  2. "He doesn't know that yet, but who cares about the details? Moving on." -- hilarious

  3. I have fallen in love with the Pontoon song too.
