Summer Soundtrack 2014
Here’s the list of this summer’s likely soundtrack. These songs will likely reach the point of over-saturation by the beginning of July but in ten years time, just may be fond parts of the memory of 2014.
Last summer was highly retro, thanks to hits from Daft Punk, Bruno Mars and Robin Thicke. This summer looks like it’s going to be retro but from a different era. Many of this songs sound 90s influenced, meaning the 1990s are now back in fashion.
There’s a spread of genres throughout what I think will layer playlists this summer, from pop to hip-hop, rock to reggae. What’s not included, however, is the four-on-the-floor dance/pop sound that defined summer for most of the last decade. Check out the songs below (click on each for YouTube links) and decide whether they’re a play or pass.Ariana Grande featuring Iggy Azalea – Problem
