'Spring Into Summer' Soundtrack: A Spotify Playlist

It's that time of year, again - the time to bid a fond farewell to spring and welcome summer. Is there a better way to "spring into summer" than with musical accompaniment?

Eclectic Pop has you covered with a playlist of 30 songs, streaming on Spotify for your listening delight. Here is the rundown on what you will hear in Eclectic Pop’s official “Spring into Summer" playlist.

The Playlist

What makes a great summer soundtrack? If your answer is a list of songs with an upbeat rhythm, tropical influences, and country spirit, then this is the playlist for you. Eclectic Pop’s Spring into Summer playlist features 30 songs, both retro and recent that aim to put you in a peaceful state of mind.

Featured Artists

Featured on the playlist is mega-talented country singer Mickey Guyton’s incredibly catchy “Heartbreak Song,” a relationship anthem that will empower you through the summer. While, Guyton’s moving ballad “Safe” recalls the tenderness of summer’s evening breeze. Also included are the acoustic versions of “Forever Love” and “Unbreakable.”

Imagine Dragons’ stirring “Believer” boasts the epic underpinnings of a summer soundtrack. While, Ray LaMontagne’s sultry “Supernova” offers a breathy, romantic retreat.

Playing with Inspiration

When it came to inspiration for the playlist, smooth 70’s singles (The Commodore’s “Easy”) provided ample touchstones. The playlist’s tropical feel comes by way of James Taylor’s idyllic “Mexico” and The Zac Brown Band’s “Jump Right In” and “The Wind.”

Beloved classics from Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, King Harvest and more round out the playlist’s retro groove. Modern classics from Blink-182, Sixpense None the Richer, and Jimmy Eat World comprise the playlist’s contemporary nostalgia. 

Dancing into Summer

When it comes to the themes of summer, dancing readily springs to mind. Because of that, Shakira makes three appearances on the playlist with her multitude of dance-inducing hits. Continuing the theme of dancing away the summer is Ed Sheeran’s seductive “Shape of You," and Train’s latest summer smash “Play That Song."
