Our Top 10 Picks for a summer playlist to cool you off at the pool, the patio and on the road.
Tom Petty, "Square One"
Essential to summer listening is the wistful back porch tune, and Petty comes through here with a song that will have you whistling and reminiscing. Petty doesn't try too hard. It seems like the music just comes out naturally, with effortless lyrics to boot. Its source album is "Highway Companion," but it was also hand-picked by Cameron Crowe months before the full-length's release for Petty's "Elizabethtown," the soundtrack of which was much better than the film itself.
