9 songs to add to your pool party playlist

  • 0

From Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to Adele’s “Water Under the Bridge,” H2O has long caught the attention of popular songwriters and musicians.

The reasons, of course, are elemental.

We need water to survive, thus it’s a great lyrical metaphor for all kinds of things we can’t do without — especially love.

It also invokes such vivid imagery, leading artists to set their songs at beaches, rivers and lakes.

And the topic can translate to a near-limitless amount of cool playlists — including our own, presented here. We tried to mix things up here, touching on a variety of watery themes and including many different genres, with the end goal being something you’d want to crank up on a road trip to the lake or beach or maybe just an afternoon spent at the backyard pool.

So enjoy the tunes, which we’ll list chronologically because it gives us (yet another) excuse to start things off with one of our all-time favorite bands.
