The Soundtrack of My Summer

Be Your Everything

It's Road Trip Wednesday Time again, hosted by the awesome YA Highway. This week's topic:

What music has been your summer soundtrack?

Music! One of my favorite things, ev-ah. Seriously, couldn't live without it. I'm gonna have to restrain myself from sharing too many songs.

This summer, it's been all about my fave band who are finally putting out a new album. That's right, Boys Like Girls. Said new album doesn't come out till the fall, but they released three songs on an EP that I've been gulping up like crazy. My fave is the one up top (can't wait for the release of the actual music video for this song but the lyric video is pretty awesome too), and the other two are here below performed live and acoustic.

Life of the Party

The First Time
Another new singer I just discovered this summer is Ed Sheeran. He has got some amazing music, very honest lyrics, and his voice sounds like butter in my ears. His song, The A-Team is on the radio right now, but a song of his that I've been replaying over and over is called Kiss Me. If you need inspiration for a kissing scene in your writing, or heck just some background music- this is THE song.

What songs have you loved this summer?


  1. Not so much particular songs, this summer, but an old British music show, which led to my, um, creative response to this week's RTW. :)

  2. Ack! I've gone off the deep end into esoteric music land. I'm listening to Radioactive by Imgaine Dragons, Dreamer by Elizaveta, and Marauder's Map by the Ministry of Magic.

    Maybe I should dig out my Hobbit Rap in honor of the upcoming Hobbit movies....

  3. I hadn't heard Boys like Girls before but they are awesome! Thanks for the music inspiration :D
    My summer playlist has been very relaxed, with one favorite song whose lyrics were penned by a YA author :)

  4. I haven't heard Boys Like Girls before. Thanks for sharing them! :)

  5. Oh I wasn't familiar with BMG, but I'm excited to check them out! Thanks for sharing and getting me some new music!

  6. Oh, it's been a while since I've hear any Boys Like Girls! Thanks for the reminder! ;-)

  7. Ahhh, so many people who've never heard of Boys Like Girls! They are THE BEST!!!
