Here are 8 PACT Favorites to add to your Summer Playlist:

1. Dean Miller’s Pick

“Talk” by Khalid

Why: “It was cemented as my summer song on a recent trip to Southern CA.  Love the beat, lyrics and Khalid’s range!”

2. Diane Strunk’s Pick

“In The Summertime” by Mungo Jerry

Why: “Carefree and Chh chh-chh, uh, chh chh-chh – ‘nuf said!”

3. Jennifer Cohen’s Pick

“Southbound” by Carrie Underwood

Why: “This song gets me up, moving and smiling. It makes me happy it’s summer!”

4. David Shin’s Pick

“New Light” by John Mayer

Why: “It’s a great song to listen to while driving or while taking the subway because of its retro and upbeat vibe.”

5. Amanda Nardi Di Filippo’s Pick

“Crocodile Rock” by Elton John

Why: “While growing up, driving down the shore was not complete without Sir Elton John! My family and I would rock out to his greatest hits on our way to Cape May.”

6. Danielle Pinto’s Pick

“The Weakest Shade of Blue” by Pernice Brothers

Why: “This has been on a heavy playlist rotation for me since the mid-2000’s. It makes me think of the ocean, the summer sky, and summer love – in a sort of melancholic/nostalgic way. Summer has always felt like a blending of joy and melancholy for me. The happiness you feel is fleeting, as you become increasingly aware of time moving faster the closer you get to the end of August.”

7. Kim Tuski’s Pick

“All Summer Long” by Kid Rock

Why: “When I hear this song it motivates me to get moving regardless of the time of day.”

8. Cheryl Jarvis Johnson’s Pick

“Promenade” by Peter White

Why: “My song for the summer is a jazz tune called:  Promenade by Peter White – when you have no energy to make that deadline, wash those clothes or get out of bed in the morning, this jazz piece has such melody and spirit you can only get up and just dance…any dance!”
