Nostalgic Songs To Spice Up Your Summer Playlist

Feeling like you’re lacking in inspiration for your summer playlist? It’s always great to go with some early pop classics that everyone loves. Here’s my list of my favorite nostalgic songs guaranteed to spice up your summer playlist.

Party In The USA

An eternal classic by Miley Cyrus, Party In The USA has earned a fan-favorite status. It’s always guaranteed to get me on the dance floor. 


TikTok by Kesha was her breakout song, that is permanently engraved in my brain and arguably helped shaped a young generation.

Call Me Maybe

Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen was iconic when it was first released, and I would like to think that it’s still iconic now.

Good Time

Good Time by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen is another great summer song, that always has me singing and dancing.


Starships by Nicki Minaj is a classic summer hit, with the iconic line, “let’s go to the beach, beach, let’s go getaway”. 

I Gotta Feeling

I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas has continued to be arguably their most famous song, and with good reason. It’s so hard to go wrong with such a good song that gets people on their feet.

You Belong With Me

You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift is the perfect song to scream your heart out to on a windows-down drive on a hot summer night. Plus, how could anything beat that iconic music video

DJ Got Us Falling In Love

DJ Got Us Falling In Love by Usher and Pitbull is a collaboration that simply screams summer. This one is guaranteed to get you pumped up with some friends.


Location by Khalid is a classic summer song if you’re looking for a more chill vibe, and less of a jumpy beat. 


Summer by Calvin Harris, of course, has to be the one to finish off this list. The epitome of summer, this song has a guaranteed spot on any summer playlist of mine.

There you have it! I hope you enjoyed this list of nostalgic songs guaranteed to spice up your summer playlist. I love all of these songs, and I hope they find a spot on your perfect playlist.
