Summer '17 Tunes

With a glance at my music app, anyone would know I have quite a wide taste of music. Throughout my life my favorites have evolved but also stuck with me along the way. A love of classic rock started when I was young, then came the pop diva's of the mid-90's, followed by boy band swooning (including my first *NSYNC concert and a dozen after that). Late in high school and all throughout college it was country, country, country, along with a little hip hop and rap since I had to know the beats when going out to the club (i.e. a dirty little college bar where your feet stuck to the floor). Country music stuck with me for quite awhile and I still don't mind it too much. But within the last five years I've grasped onto contemporary Christian and 90's hip hop, which is probably a bizarre combination to most. Now, I find myself listening to a little of everything, with the exception of heavy metal, which has never really been my jam.

So for the summer I put together an ultimate summer 2017 playlist. I've linked my actual Spotify playlist here to make it super easy for you. Some upbeat, some dreamy, some old, and some new. All good.
