Earlier this month, my coworkers assembled our “Songs of the Swelter” playlist in honor of the hottest summer days we’ve felt in a while. As there is only one week left of Summer, I thought I’d share the playlist with you. Keep in mind, we’re an eclectic group and range in age from 20s to 50s. The songs either reflect what Summer means to us or what we’ve been listening to this season.

Would you add anything to the list? Do you have a song that is getting you in the mood for Fall? Please share!
