Summer is almost here!

You know what that means: sun, relaxation, and good music. To kick off your summer right, here are 15 summer songs that just fit that warm vibe. 

If you are new to English or English is your second language, these songs are also a great way to practice English throughout the summer without feeling like you are doing homework. After each song, I have included some English vocabulary that is included in that song.
