Today, before the Christmas section of Target swallows the Halloween section overnight, we thought it was about time to look back on another summer long gone. In line with our annual tradition, here are The Press’ staff picks for this year’s Songs of the Summer.
Summer 2021 was almost the summer of post-vaccine freedom — almost. Continuing our annual tradition, we’ve compiled a list of songs that captured the hope, sorrow and personal growth we experienced over the break.
This year, as part of an annual tradition, we’re sharing our favorite songs of the summer. We’re a little late this time, but considering the concept of time has lost all meaning in 2020, we’re going ahead with it anyway. In a remarkably bad time, these songs brought us solace and comfort, and we hope they’ll do the same for you.
Each year, all of us at the Press look back on the long summer break and try out best to pick out the music that defined the season for us. Here are our songs for the summer.
