Summer is back! Kind of. Let’s do what we can to eliminate the delta variant so we can enjoy the summer alongside these tunes.

The tracklist, along with YouTube and Spotify versions of the playlist, are at the bottom. But first, some notes:

  • I’m declaring “good 4 u” by Olivia Rodrigo as 2021’s official “Song of the Summer.” If you think I should be making other considerations, let me know. Other “songs of the summer” for the last few years, according to yours truly: “Savage (Remix)” by Megan Thee Stallion and BeyoncĂ© in 2020, “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus in 2019, “Nice for What” by Drake in 2018, and “Slide” by Calvin Harris, Frank Ocean, and Migos in 2017.
  • I never thought I would like a Modest Mouse song in 2021 as much as I love “We Are Between,” but “here we are.”
  • It wouldn’t really be a summer mix without the most underrated artist of the last 5 years, Amber Mark. People need to stop sleeping on her.
  • Check out the fizzy, bubbly cover of that one Third Eye Blind song (you’ll recognize it). Hilary Duff, rising from the ashes!
  • Is “The Way I Made You Cry” from 2021 or 1967?
  • “Summer Mix 2021, Part 2: Night” coming soon!
