It's summer. Like you, I'm indulging in my fair doses of all things pop. It's what the season calls for. Yet, somewhere in between all the sugar and vibrancy, a choice few melodies seem to be working their way into my playlists on a regular basis. Spanning several forms of classification, here is what's served as my soul fuel across the last two weeks. Pop? Not exactly. Delightful? Every damn one.
