May has finally come and gone! This was the month that not only started my Tune Tuesday summer posts, but it’s also the month you start to see tracks become so big to the point that they eventually become a staple in the summer of 2017! Last year I started to see the change early on, like when songs like “Heathens” by Twenty One Pilots and “Unsteady” by X Ambassadors that came out in the middle of March, I literally just started hearing less of these songs in the last two months or so.
I am excited to see what the artists and bands bring out for the summer! One of the things that we definitely see more are the outdoor festivals like Rock On The Range in Ohio was earlier this month, and then towards the end of July and August, you have Lollapolooza and the Vans tour! There’s a concert and/or tour for anyone’s music tastes and majority of the festivals take place sometime from May to the end of September!
A lot of music came out this month, probably the biggest date was May 12th, you had Machine Gun Kelly, Paramore, Harry Styles, Goo Goo Dolls, Seether, and New Kids On The Block all releasing new albums at the same time! The week after, the 19th you saw Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Rascal Flatts, and Snoop Dogg! It’s all over the place the amount of different genres on this list alone! All of them have potential of producing the next best summer anthem for 2017!
I’m sorry but I was unable to figure out a song of the month for May. If you’ve been keeping up with this month’s Tune Tuesday posts, I will include some songs from each act somewhere in the monthly playlist!
Do you have any songs that you like so far that came be part of the summer 2017 anthems? Are you going (or been) to any concerts or festivals?
