Monday Melodies Link-up #2

Hey y'all! So we're back this week with the second Monday Melodies link-up, and like I said last week, my playlist is going to be my favorite road trip songs. We're going to Crater Lake at the end of July (and I'm driving!), so the perfect playlist is a must.

1. Easy to Love- Maxi Priest. I love the reggae beats and tones of this song mixed with the funky synth sounds. Plus, it's super easy to sing along to!

2. No Matter Where you Are- Us the Duo. Ever since my friend Divya told me about Us the Duo, I have been obsessed! They're a husband-wife duo, and their voices together are like melted caramel and a land of rainbows and 365 days of sunshine.

3. Oceans- Coasts. I went to the beach again yesterday, and everything ocean/beach has been my jam lately. This is a very Mumford and Sons-esque song (idk that's what I thought), and I love it!

4. Come With Me Now- KONGOS. I don't understand this song. It's just a country-pop vibe that is super catchy, and to be honest, I think country-inspired beats work the best for road trips.

5. Chandelier- Sia. Okay so I'm cheating and just putting down one of my faves, but this song straight up gives me chills. Everyone in the car with me knows that I can't hit the high notes, but I will screech along like a dying elephant anyway because it's just so good!

And now for everyone's favorite part, the link up!
