Summer Playlist + Some Weird One Direction (Fangirl) Confessions

This summer is going to be packed full of trips and I will want a playlist to listen to on the many road trips between destinations. I tried to keep it short? πŸ˜‚

Most of these songs have a backstory on how they came to be part of my life (yep, you can cringe. Music is just so awesome though). Some of them I have discussed, but some are too weird and personal to share – but I do write about a few embarrassing ones.

Amarillo Tony Christie

This song holds a special place in my heart. I can’t remember the first time I listened to this song, so it must have been a while ago. With me going to Menorca (a Spanish speaking island) I think it would be quite fitting!

Late Nite – The Strokes

Breakfast At Tiffany’sDeep Blue Something

I can’t really explain how many memories this song gives me. I’ve only listened to it in good parts of my life, so there’s no nostalgia held to its name!

Hall Of FameThe Script

Rain – The Script

ParklifeBlur.

This song is so… British. I love the dialogue used in the beginning.

Pretty Shining People and ParadiseGeorge Ezra

Ezra’s new (not so new anymore) album: Staying At Tamara’s is a hit for me. I love every single song in it, though my favourites are these two.

TroublemakerOlly Murs

Somebody Told Me – The Killers

Mr Brightside – The Killers

Not only is this an indie anthem, it is also a song that was played on repeat at my summer Scout camp last year. There was this open-air stage that was emitting music from 9:00am until 23:00 every day. I am so blessed. Some of this was live music as well!

ImagineJohn Lennon

Great message. Great man.

Are You Gonna be My Girl – Jet

Mr. Blue SkyElectronic Light Orchestra

I wasn’t one of those people who got obsessed with this song after its participation in Guardians of the Galaxy. I have always had a connection with this song. Maybe I was in primary school when I heard for the first time? Maybe even before that?

Lost Boy – Ruth B.

I first heard this song last year on my Scout camp. We had a little talent contest and a girl covered this song. I wish I could hear her again! She was such an amazing singer.

Take Me OutFranz Ferdinand 

I found this song on an Indie playlist, recommended to me by Amazon. It is a new discovery but I think I may have heard it prior to this year…

I Predict A Riot – Kaiser Chiefs

(this list is getting longer and I am no longer high on caffeine)

Story Of My LifeOne Direction

When I was 7, 8 and 9, I used to watch One Direction music videos on the television (quite a large one) and sing along to only Louis’ parts…

HistoryOne Direction

Act My Age – One Direction

One Direction had to get on this playlist because the band brings back so many memories. When they broke up, I was sad. I know it’s pathetic, but we’ve all been there with one band at least.. right?πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚

KiwiHarry Styles

I have spoken about my love for Harry Styles’ new album in the past. I started listening to it last summer so it does hold some good ‘summer heatwave’ moments. I hope we don’t have a heatwave this year. I’m so thankful it;s raining at the moment!

Only Angel – Harry Styles

Twist And ShoutThe Beatles

I do cry when I hear this song: in happiness or sadness, I don’t know. In first school I was in a play called ‘1960’s’ and it featured a TARDIS (the first episode of Doctor Who aired in 1963, I don’t even need to check Google for that one!) and many Beatles songs. Plus a lot of patriotism because we won the world cup! In short, I miss being an innocent little girl who sang to The Beatles like they were still popular.

Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

I bloody love music. This is a perfect experimental rock song (or is it even rock?). Also, you may be aware of my France trip. This song became an anthem for the coach trips and we all sang it disturbingly loud in a disco at the end of the week… (France travel diaries linked here).


Thank you for reading my summer playlist today. Have you heard these songs? Do you have any songs that mean a lot to you?

I would love to hear some cringey fangirl/boy stories in the comments below πŸ™ƒ

    These are the only ones I recognize πŸ˜‚ I wasn’t really a One Direction fan tbh…I only like Louis and Harry and Niall…I mean Zayn and Liam are fine but I just don’t like their songs’ topics πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I usually listen to loud music. Imagine Dragons, NF, The Score, Saint PHNX, Machine Gun Kelly, sometimes Yungblud, 5SOS, Halsey…Yknow πŸ˜‚

    • It’s surprise that you this many! Imagine Dragons are good, but I don’t listen to any of the other artists you have mentioned. It seems we have different tastes πŸ™‚
      I’ve not heard any of Louis’s original music, what is his album?
      Thank you for reading and taking your time to comment πŸ™‚
      It is much appreciated!
