NYC Songs For Summer Playlists
PopSugar NYC Playlist: Summer in the City Soundtrack
Every outing needs its own soundtrack, even if it's just the one playing on loop in your head. Let this weekend be filled with New York-inspired tunes as you catch some rays at Central Park, stoop in the sun, throw an impromptu Summer cocktail party, or enjoy a salty pimp from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.
Don't forget Sunday marks the first day that New York's recently passed law legalizing gay marriage goes into effect. So throw on some NYC tunes, and let the beat rock. This is musical consumption for the city dweller's soul. Have a New York-inspired song to add? Leave a comment below.
