“Restless Year” by Ezra Furman

“This is one of my favorite songs that I can listen to a hundred times in a row and not get tired of.” —Katie

“So Ready” by Goose

“This funky little ditty has been playing on repeat in my head for much of the summer, and the video is pretty fun too.” —Jack

“What’s Your Country Song” by Thomas Rhett

“This song just gives you a fun ‘down home’ feel and is just a good reminder that country music, though not everyone’s first choice, can remind us of the important things in life. Thomas Rhett is a great all-around artist, and I can’t wait to see him live at Cheyenne Frontier Days this year.” —Eddie

“Imagine” by Ben Platt

“This song brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Whether I think about my kids, my parents, my dogs or even those of my family who have passed away.” —Jaime

“Miss Chatelaine” by k.d.lang and Orville Peck, the Iron Hoof Remix

“I saw Orville Peck at Red Rocks last week, and his voice is just so soothing. I also love the beat and random sound effects added into this version of the song.” —Todd

“Tout L’univers” by Gjon’s Tears

“Every year, when summer starts, I become Eurovision trash, and this is the song that I haven’t been able to get over even two months later. It got 3rd place, but it will always be 1st in my heart (even though the real winners were amazing).” —Alison

“We Gotta Get Out Of This Place” by The Animals

“I really like this song because it is high-energy and pulsing. It helps give me an energy boost!” —Katie

“Keep on Loving You” by Cigarettes After Sex

“This has to be one of the best covers ever!! I always loved the original song by REO Speedwagon but this version takes this song’s powerful lyrical intensity to a whole new level. The slower tempo, the hushed instruments and the haunting vocals just give me all the feels. I just can’t seem to get enough of it lately.” —Victoria

“Games” by Tessa Violet

“It’s a fun summertime jam that mixes well with cruising the streets with the windows down. Also, she is singing at Taste of Fort Collins this year, so I’m excited to listen to her live!” —DJ

“Bad Habits” by Ed Sheeran

“I have always loved his music. My daughters, not so much. But this song is the one that won them over!”—Veronica

“Get Out the Map” by Indigo Girls

“This is the best road trip anthem ever, great beat and wonderful harmonies. If this doesn’t get you going, then go listen to ‘500 Miles’ by the Proclaimers, and tell me I’m wrong!” —Robin

“Driven To Tears” by The Police

“The drums and beat keep you going even in the hot weather!” —Ben

“Greek God” by Conan Gray

“It’s a beautiful song with gorgeous vocals! It also is pretty empowering too; the artist has said it’s about not letting people bully you or make you feel small and insignificant. I feel this is important now that everything is slowly going back to normal and we’re encountering some ‘less-than-savory’ people in our day-to-day lives.” —Holly

“It Always Happens This Way” by Toulouse

“This is a sweet, comforting song that I love listening to in the car. I first heard it on one of my favorite television shows, so it holds a special connection there as well.” —Katie

“deja vu” by Olivia Rodrigo

“If I’m honest, I’ve been listening to Olivia Rodrigo’s entire album ‘SOUR’ on repeat for much of the month. ‘deja vu’ is one of my top favorites though. I love Olivia’s voice and so many of the songs are catchy and speak to my inner 17-year-old.” —Taylor

“Your Power” by Billie Eilish

“Here are some of my favs that I have been listening to this month:
When I am in a quieter mood I have really been liking WILDES, Haux, or Agnes Obel.
I have been listening to Florence + the Machine’s song ‘Grace’, I love that song.
When I feel like I need something upbeat and bumpin (lol) I like Beyonce and Doja Cat.

I LOVE Billie Eilish and I can’t wait for her new album to come out in a week!!!! I listen to her on repeat for sure!!!” —Shannon
