The 70 Songs of Lazy Hazy Summer

When was your laziest, haziest summer? For us, it was our sixteenth. That’s the summer when you’re stacked with freedom (read: a driver’s license) but short on plans. When you’re still at home but no longer a child. (No, you’re an incoming upperclassman.) When the only things that mattered were friends, not getting fired from your summer job, and music. So much music.

To commemorate this peak period of laze and haze, we had our team recount their favorite tracks from their 16th summers. In return, we received a playlist that covers five decades and nearly every genre of music. Is there a cohesive theme? Not in the slightest. Will it put a smile on your face? Absolutely.
