10 Tunes You Need for the Perfect Spring Break Playlist

By Ashley Yenick, Student at Merrimack College

Spring has almost sprung and that means Spring Break is almost here! Whether you’re hanging out with friends at home, going to the beach or chilling at your local pool, U Chic has the perfect music playlist for you and your friends to jam out to.

I’ve created a 10-song playlist for you rock out to this Spring Break!

1. “Harlem Shake” by Baauer

This song is incredibly catchy, has been recognized worldwide and is a YouTube dance sensation. Jack Wills, the adorably cute British retail company, even went to the extreme of having its products shake on its website to the beat of the "Harlem Shake." The "Harlem Shake" is everywhere you look, so of course, it's first on the list for Spring Break!

2. “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore

This song has been all over MTV and radio stations alike. This song is so unique and makes you want to go thrift shopping! Macklemore’s crazy fast rap is what makes this awesome song a hit.

3. “Kiss You” by One Direction

One Direction has created a British INVASION! In any store you walk into, there’s at least one One Direction piece of merchandise or song playing. Their songs are so fun and upbeat, and you’ll find yourself singing along to their catchy choruses the first time around.

4. “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons

This song is great to drive to or have playing on the beach with friends. Like the One Direction song, you’ll hit this song on repeat for sure!

5. “Beauty and a Beat” by Justin Bieber

This song was made pretty famous at the recent Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this past December, and the Biebs’ awesome voice and beat will have you dancing like crazy with all your best friends!

6. “Scream & Shout” by Will.I. Am. Featuring Britney Spears

This song by Will.I.Am. and B. Spears will be stuck in your head before you know it! It's got a catchy hook that makes you bob your head along to the beat almost immediately.

7. “Day Light” by Maroon 5

Maroon 5’s new album is great! This song “Daylight” slows things down a little bit on the playlist and gives it a chilling out vibe. This song is perfect for relaxing at the beach.

8. “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia Featuring John Martin

This song's been around for a while, but it’s still a good one! It also has a catchy beat to listen to whether you’re in the car or at the beach with your best friends!

9. “What About Us” by The Saturdays

This song was just newly released by The Saturdays, a British pop group. The Saturdays have a new show on E! on Sundays at 10. This song is a girl power jam and is meant to be turned all the way up! This catchy beat will have you singing in your shower in no time.

10. “Lost at Sea” by Zedd Featuring Ryan Tedders

I recently stumbled upon this song by a Russian producer, and it’s definitely worth a listen! This guy knows how to make music, and I guarantee it’s going to hit the airwaves in no time!
