MyTunes: Vacation

#tbt to this Instapic

Vacation Songs
"Rather Be" by Clean Bandit  One of my all-time favorite songs, this song really gets me in a beach-y mood, perfect for spring break!

"Alone Together" by Fall Out Boy  A party anthem from one of my favorites, if they don't have you head banging nothing will

"C'Mon" by Ke$ha  Just as fun as Tic Toc with a little more panache that comes with age--perfect for partying on the road with friends

"California Gurls" by Katy Perry  A classic, 'nuff said

"Don't Stop" by 5 Seconds of Summer  This Aussie group has produced several list-worthies but none so great for spring break as this one

"Flat on the Floor" by Carrie Underwood  An oldie from Carrie but oh-so great; her powerhouse voice belts out these lyrics beautifully

"Get Your Shine On" by Florida Georgia Line  These country crooners add some much-needed twang to spring break (although the video needs some definite work--try this one instead)

"Good Times" by Tommy Lee  Once the gorgeous tattooed drummer of Mötley Crüe, Tommy Lee produced a very early-2000s track here that's still well worth a listen

"Higher" by Taio Cruz  An older track but still great for getting you pumped up for spring break shenanigans

"I Like It Like That" by Hot Chelle Rae  Remember when they were the bad boys of Radio Disney? This song at least is still relevant to spring break parties

"I Lived" by OneRepublic  A slow-er song with a killer beat (and my favorite music video ever) that I love for its reflective qualities and the starring vocals

"Popular Song" by MIKA (& Ariana Grande)  It's been out for a while, but I still love this song for a long drive or impromptu midnight dance parties with friends

"Outside" by Calvin Harris (feat. Ellie Goulding)  The techno beat of this song helps showcase Ellie's voice and it's a perfect song for partying

Honorable Mentions
"Girl Almighty", "Stockholm Syndrome", and "No Control" by One Direction  From their latest album Four, the boys (who are sexy men now actually) sound really great and these three tracks are good for spring break (SS is one of my all-time favorites)

"22" by Taylor Swift  The dance-with-your-girls' anthem, no vacation list for such a party holiday would be complete without it

"What The Hell" by Avril Lavigne  This song delivers the perfect party rock anthem, plus a big middle finger to 'normal' life

"Hit the Lights" and "Rock God" by Selena Gomez  Older tunes of hers that capture that sexy swagger that is the goal of all spring breakers (coming from a Spring Breaker herself!)
