Summer-Ready Cover Mix

mixtape_popten1

Summer is unofficially here. And what better way to honor Memorial Day than by listening to covers? It’s other people remembering classic songs in a slightly different way than we’re used to. The mix is one hour of summer songs or at least songs that somehow remind me of summer. So let’s get right to the music!
