Summer Travel Playlist 2017

Friday, July 07, 2017
Summer holidays are almost here and for me, luckily I'll be visiting the beautiful cities of Chester and London this summer as well as Southampton and a few cities and fjords along Norway's western coast which I can't wait for! Summer travelling, whether it's a road trip, train journey or cruise, demands a summer playlist.

I can't wait to visit Norway as the country as a whole looks so beautiful! I also can't wait to see the fjords and the cute city of Bergen. Norway has been on my list of places to visit for so long, as well as Santorini, Iceland and Cuba. The Destination2 website is definitely making me wish I could travel much more than I do!

My taste in music is very eclectic from euro pop, pop punk, metal and alternative to classical and soundtracks as well as some nostalgic 90's and 00's music. I'm also one of those people who doesn't keep up to date with new artists, bands and I stick with my old favourites and as I look back through my iTunes, most of my favourite songs are within the pop punk and alternative genres.

I first got into more punk, pop punk and alternative music in my early teens and I listened to a lot of it on long summer road trips and camping with friends so most of the bands and songs on my summer playlist remind me so much of my teens and amazing summer evenings with friends, camping and hot summer days at the beach.

Green Day was the first band, apart from the Spice Girls..., that I was obsessed with! I discovered them via a friend and I vividly remember listening to the album American Idiot on my awful looking MP3 player in the car on the way to Wales camping with family and friends. So all of Green Days albums from American Idiot and before then are so summery and nostalgic to me! Panic At The Disco is the same too, I listened to them a lot in my teens and all of their songs bring back summer and school memories. Fall Out Boy fit in the same teenage category as Green Day and Panic! At The Disco for me (along with HIM and Avenge Sevenfold but they are exactly summery...) and I can't listen to any of their songs without singing along!

Motion City Soundtrack, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Wavves are newer to me but I'm obsessed with all of them and I know they won't be for everyone but I can't get enough and I'd recommend recommend checking out these songs. I know all of these songs will be replayed over and over again while on trains during my summer holidays!

What songs are on your summer playlist? Do you like any of these songs/bands?
