You’ve gotta love a classic. While we’re practicing social distancing it doesn’t mean we can’t rock out. Curate a playlist and build a picnic if you have some sparklers light those off and have a blast anyways. We’ve taken this Music Crush Monday to rock out to some oldies and curate a Memorial Day playlist for all of you.

Lets kick off the playlist after Springsteen with Zac Brown band’s “Chicken Fried”

Next up we’ve chosen The Beach Boy’s classic “Surfin USA” to celebrate all the good vibes.

Lets kick up the Rock n’ Roll vibes with Lenny Kravtiz’s “American Woman”, cause we love a knock out.

We haven’t forgotten about the south. Shouting you guys out with “Sweet Home Alabama”.

Memorial Day is the kickoff of America’s summer season, so naturally Bryan Adam’s “Summer of 69” has to hit the playlist.

Ladies this one is for you. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers “American Girl”.


No Memorial Day playlist is complete without Kiss’ “Rockin’ in the USA”.

Bringing it back to the West Coast and amping up “California Girls” from Katy Perry.

Keeping it pop with Bonnie McKee’s “American Girl”.

Because we all miss touching people let Harry Styles take it away with his new single “Watermelon Sugar”.

You didn’t think we’d leave this off of a Memorial Day playlist did you? Of course Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” makes the cut.

Because we all need “lovin” here’s Maroon 5 taking it away with “Sugar”

Keep your mood up with Pharrell’s “Happy”

Keep it sexy with Justin Timberlake and his hit “Sexy Back”.

Follow this up with Christina Aguilera’s tribute to a hott man in uniform, “Candyman”.

The original female dynamo Madonna rocks the weekend with her classic “Holiday”.

You can’t have classics without Michael Jackson.

Add fire to the playlist by celebrating the Latino’s who make up American diversity in music with the Queen of moves Shakira.

You can’t choose a playlist and talk about Latin music in America without the Puerto Rican bombshell Jennifer Lopez who put Caribbean flare in our ears, with hits we’re still obsessed with years later.

Calm the vibes as we head into the evening with The Wallflowers classic hit “One Headlight”.

Flow into Weezer’s “Island in the Sun”

The ultimate classic, a salute to the saddest day in music history.

“Californication” brings us back home.

Roll into Jayz’s remix of “Forever Young”.

Fun’s “We Are Young” featuring Janelle Monae is next on our chill Memorial Day playlist; because we can glow brighter.

Take flight with The Foo Fighter’s “Learn to Fly”.

The question on everyones mind thanks to Jet “Are You gonna Be My Girl”.

Keeping up with the classic’s with Van Halen’s “Jump”
