“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.”
-Henry David Thoreau
Here we are in mid-July, and summertime is officially in full swing. Whether you’re on the hot ‘n’ sticky southeast coast like our Charlotte office or you’re in the “hmm, can’t decide” west coast coolness of our Portland office, or somewhere in between, nothing says summer like a great playlist. Summertime evokes a lot of things for a lot of different people. The meet-cute with your partner on the beach back in ’84. That awesome outdoor concert you went to with your buddies. Or firing up the grill and doing a proper cookout with your family on the back deck.
But, one size does not fit all when it comes to summer-feeling songs. We put the request to our HMHer’s, asking them to provide songs that feel like summer (and honestly, could work in any part of the year, but sunshine and warmth seems to add a special somethin’-somethin’ to it). We present to you: HMH’s Sounds of Summer. Feel free to share our playlist with others and let us know if there’s a song we left off that should be included!
