There’s something about summer that makes us especially nostalgic.
Maybe we’re reminded how great it felt as a kid, free from school (aka jail), with months of fun ahead. The smell of suntan lotion or sound of a lawnmower can bring back that feeling out of nowhere, but nothing does it quite like a certain song.
Songs really have the power to take us back in time (no Delorean needed).
And yet, weirdly, they’ll even make us long for a time we never experienced. (If you’ve ever felt pangs of nostalgia for the 60s, 70s or 80s as a millennial, you’re not alone!)
There are no rules when it comes to your fave era of summer music. Set the dials on your time machine and go for it! Stingray Music has channels featuring every decade, programmed with sun and fun in mind.
