Overnight beach bender? College Mag is here to ensure your music is on point for every stage of your beach buzz.
The Drive Down
You’ve called off from work, packed a suit and some sandals, and you are ready for everything the beach has to offer! Now its time to switch your mentality from stressed to sunny and the vibes from busy to breezy .
Never Let You Go - Third Eye Blind
National Anthem - Lana del Ray
Tounge Tied - Grouplove
After that chill ride, the only thing you should be concerned with is the the waves, the babes, and ensuring your cooler is stocked. Pick a spot, lay down some towels, blow up the rafts and tubes, and most importantly get the iHome up and running. A day long beach bender is meant to be enjoyed, and with these songs, its going to be hard not to have at least a little fun in the sun.
Don’t Wanna Come Down - Trey Songz
Sweet Life - Frank Ocean
Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys
Nothing eases the mood from relaxed to raging like some solid jams to get the night going. Whether you’re into old favorites like Sir Petty or new friends like FUN., this combination is sure to pave the way to a wild waterside night out, so get the drinks a pourin’ and the pictures a taken, the fun has just begun.
Whether you’re flippin’ cups or going straight for shots, these tunes are here to set the mood for an unforgettable night:
I Won’t Back Down - Tom Petty
Theophilus London ft. A$AP - Big Spender
Some Nights - FUN.
Time to get down to business, and without the right soundtrack, its never easy to get your party face on. However, with a line up that includes guys like Calvin Harris and Skrillex mixing and remixing, its going to be tough to stay seated (who would want to anyway?) And for those of you who claim to be over the fist pumping phenomenon when you’re sober, just wait ‘til you get a few drinks in you and these tracks start bumping. Disclaimer: If at the Jersey Shore, use extreme caution and beware of flying drinks and hair extensions.
Lights - Ellie Goulding (Bassnectar Remix)
Make it Bun Dem - Damian Marley and Skrillex
Spectrum (Say My Name) - Florence and the Machine (Calvin Harris Remix)
The drinks have been drank, the good times are now good memories, and the beach bender must come to a close. While this period can prove to be depression inducing, luckily these musicians feel your pain, and have created songs to ease the sting of summer fun- never easy, but always worth it.
We’re turning to the classics to soothe and help reminisce on your legendary beach stay:
You Don’t Know How it Feels - Tom Petty
Good Riddance - Green Day
Boys of Summer - Don Henley
