Summer in the Philippines is always synonymous to taking multiple road trips to the beach. Why? Because literally the only time that the summer heat in this country is tolerable is when you’re sitting at the beach with an ice-cold beer in your hand. And well, also because road trips are super exciting! With good friends, a fun playlist, some snacks and candies, and a cooler filled with refreshing drinks, what’s not to love? With that, here are some GV songs that everyone will love, to make your journey just as enjoyable as your destination.
Sucker – Jonas Brothers
Ode to the Beach. We are suckers for you sand, blue waters, and pretty sunsets. Us Manila kids will always be Island babies at heart.
It’s Not My Fault, I’m Happy – Passion Pit
Let’s get the good times rolling! You can never go wrong with a Passion Pit song for a good vibes playlist.
Easy Love – Sigala
Put this song on, and you can almost feel the salt water on your toes. Nothing like a tropical house song to get you in the mood before you’re even at the beach.
The Look – Metronomy
This may be a little bit of an oldie, but we just came across it, and it’s such a goodie! When you think about it too, indie music only gets better with age, just like many, many other things.
Kiss It Away – The Drums
Feeling the urge to accelerate with every beat of this song? Yeah, us too! Listen to this on repeat and it might get you to the beach 2x quicker! Ha, jk, don’t do that.
There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) – Blossoms
…and it’s because I’m on a road trip!
Half Mast – Empire of the Sun
Is it actually possible to not get pumped when you listen to something by the Empire of the Sun?
I Feel Good About This – The Mowgli’s
“I don’t know what it is but I feel good about this,” should perfectly sum up your outlook on the way to tropical paradise. GV all the way!
