September is here, and that means summer is officially coming to an end. Don’t get me wrong, I had a great summer, but I’m also really glad autumn is around the corner. It’s my favourite season after all. But before we dive headfirst into the fall season it’s time for a little throwback. This summer was filled with exciting music releases, so here is my end of summer playlist!
The summer of 2018 was quite an odd one. Honestly, Dutch summers are usually filled with loads of grey, rainy days and the occasional heatwave. Well, this year was different. We had proper summer weather starting in May, all the way through summer. That is really unusual. I also went on summer holiday in June, to Italy. Beautiful Tuscany to be exact. How I love Italy! There are two songs on this playlist that are actually Italian, I used to wake up in my hotel room and put on some sort of Italian music channel on the TV. Two songs really stood out for me and they remind me of my holiday. I love that that is what music can do to you! The rest is just a mixture of some of my fave artists that have brought out new music; like Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Jason Mraz etc. And other songs are just summer hits really. For me the absolute summer hit of 2018 is definitely One Kiss by Dua Lipa, I just love that song and it definitely gives me all the summer vibes. A strong second would have to be Dance To This by Troye Sivan ft. Ariana Grande. That is such a bop! And it also really reminds me of my trip to Italy. And let’s not forget to mention Soulmate by Justin Timberlake, I love that song especially after hearing it live last week. That first line is just genius ‘Summer starts now!’.
