17 Summer Songs Your Parents Probably Got It On To

The excitement of summer is tinged with the oxymoronic combination of the rush of nostalgia and the anticipation of what is yet-to-come. As the weather finally begins to warm up and the days get longer, here’s a brief playlist of classic jams handpicked by several real-life parents that prove that solid sountracks and summer car rides are experiences that transcend generational gaps (and that sometimes it’s okay to agree with your parents). Cheers to un-rolled windows,
