We might have just three official days of summer left, but there’s no reason to let it end without a party. Whether you’re celebrating Labour Day from a dock, patio or park, we have a playlist that will take you through the whole long weekend. We’re talking Frank Ocean slow jams, The Wanted’s boy band awesomeness and a throwback with the Clueless soundtrack. Maybe if we all listen at the same time we can convince summer to stick around a bit longer?

Nothing like some stellar tuneage to get your long weekend going, and our photo editor Nicole Stafford has put together this week’s selection. Whether you’re feeling Motown or mid-70s rock, this mixtape’s got something for everyone who appreciates a good summer jam.
It’s finally game day and we’re beyond excited as you probably could have figured out already. As just one of the many things we’ll be doing to get into the Olympics spirit, we’ve created a playlist of 12 classic sports songs (and a few classic Brit pop ones as well) that are sure to get you pumped for today’s Opening Ceremonies. (Slam it to the left….)
TGIF Mixtape: 18 cottage-ready tracks our associate editor wants you to listen to lakeside all weekend long
Summer will always evoke memories of sleepover camp, but until they make camps for adults (someone please do this!) cottages will have to do. This week’s mixtape is a little bit folk, slightly honky tonk and totally ideal for campfire cuddles and late nights by the lake.
Forget flip flops—everybody knows that the ultimate summer essential is the summer soundtrack. To celebrate everybody’s favourite time for tuneage, we’re going to be serving up fresh new weekly playlists in partnership with Rdio. If you haven’t heard of this rad new(ish) invention, it’s the perfect hybrid between radio and mp3 players that offers over 15 million songs at the ready, which can be added to your personal collection, mixed into playlists and shared. Oh, and there’s an app too.
First up, our online editor Randi Bergman will be treating us to her weekend mix of dance jams from the early ‘90s and beyond. You may not be familiar with all of these tunes, but we guarantee they’ll become summer classics at first listen.
