Top Ten Summer Jams (Before the Summer Ends)

Written by Jesse Sposato

Back to School is already here, and summer’s almost over. (Today is actually the very last day.) I’ll admit, I’m super sad to say goodbye to lakeside camping and ice cream cookie sandwiches at Rockaway Beach, but I am kind of excited to put on my favorite sweater again and ride my bike without majorly sweating. Before summer ends though, I want to pay homage to one of the best parts of this season: summer jams.


Below is a collection of some of the songs that made up this summer’s soundtrack for me. So, make yourself a glass of homemade lemonade and listen to these songs before the summer ends. And then be sure to listen to them all throughout the fall too because they’ll still be just as good then!
