The Verge at Ellensburg | Bopping Through Summer

My name is Dakaline, a Community Assistant at The Verge! Through every emotion I have, I have relied on music to help me out. Music is an art and I believe it is completely undervalued. Through sadness, happiness, anger, feeling nostalgic, etc. I have got a certain playlist to tag along with that emotion. Along with emotions, playlists are good for the different seasons. My winter playlist is so much different than my summer playlist. Something about the dark skies of winter have me listening to slower paced, sad music. As soon as the summer heat hits, you can count on hearing me play upbeat, hype music. 
Sun’s out, windows down, and music at max volume. Sounds amazing right? 
Most of us know how beautiful Ellensburg is in the summer. Mix a little bit of good music with the sunshine and maybe a road trip or a day lounging out by the pool screaming the lyrics to Nice For What by Drake, and you have got yourself a day filled with good vibes. 
Apple Music and Spotify are two of the most popular music streaming applications. They both include $5/Month deals for students. On either one of these apps, if you search summer playlists, you will be shown thousands of options. This is a perfect way to find and fall in love with some new music. 
For some summer hits, check out some of these songs:

UCLA – RL Grime
Every Other Memory – Ryan Hurd
Waterboy – tobi lou
Beautiful – Snoop Dogg
Lil Boo Baby – Leek Jack 
Scared to Be Lonely – Martin Garrix & Dua Lipa
