1. "Coachella – Woodstock in my Mind" by Lana Del Rey View this video on YouTube youtube.com I'm addicted to Lana's new festival song, and I say this as someone who went to a festival once, nearly had a breakdown because of the stress of camping, and only made it through after buying earplugs, a hot water bottle, extra thick socks and getting into my sleeping bag at 11pm every night. 2. "Me & U" by Dominique Dominique I have been listening to Dominique's cover of Cassie's original song over and over and it's just so good. Pro tip: summer is 100% the season for covers.

"Don't Kill My Vibe" by Sigrid View this video on YouTube youtube.com DON'T KILL MY VIBE, I scream at a pool full of startled strangers, clutching a giant ice cream floatie and a unicorn ice frappe. Behold friends: my new motto for summer 2K17. 4. "Uncool" by Kuizz soundcloud.com Because every June I vow to be super cool this season and not take any awkward pictures in front of walls of graffiti and every summer I fail miserably so I guess I'm just embracing my lack of coolness now? Catch me in my final form at your local rooftop bar enthusing to anyone who'll listen about how nice the sunset is. View this track on SoundCloud 5. "Bad Liar" by Selena Gomez View this video on YouTube youtube.com Set over the bassline of the Talking Head's 1974 song, "Psycho Killer", this contained but still pop-tastic song from Selena is hypnotically good. 6. "Seventeen" by Charlotte Lawrence w.soundcloud.com It's been a long time since I was 17, but this EDM jam is still great and only makes me feel a tiny bit old. View this track on SoundCloud 7.

Ludacris (80s Remix) View this video on YouTube youtube.com I'm obsessed with this 80s remix of Glamorous – I was never that into the original song, but this is the upbeat dance remix that I never knew my summer needed.
