5 Summer Movie Soundtracks to Listen to Right Now

There’s no better way to kick off the summer than with some of your favorite tunes, preferably poolside or in the car en route to the nearest beach. Even better when those tunes are part of the soundtrack to a nostalgia-inducing summer movie. For all the memories you’ll be making in the coming months, we’ve got a lineup of 5 summer movie soundtracks you simply must add to your playlist!

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

There hasn’t been a summer movie in recent memory that has nailed their official soundtrack quite as well as all those involved with Guardians of the Galaxy did! The second movie soundtrack is just as good, so we recommend you check them both out while you’re at it! It’s a perfectly curated collection of classic hits from Jackson 5 to the Runaways to Jay & The Americans. These easy-on-the-ears tunes capture the many comedic moments on Peter Quill’s journey to evade Yondu, who’s put out a bounty on his capture for stealing a mysterious orb, and Gemora who’s also hot on his trail!

Call Me By Your Name (2017)

If you’re looking for something a little more mellow, the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack might just do the trick — piano instrumentals, ballads and a few Italian songs on the list are sure to put you at ease. It’s a perfect accompaniment to the film, set in 1980s Italy, when romance blossoms between a seventeen-year-old student and the older man hired as his father’s research assistant.

Grease (1978)

There isn’t much more that needs to be said about Grease, a favorite amongst all ages around the world! Inspired by the summer romance between Sandy and Danny, the soundtrack is full of sing-along hits like “Summer Nights” and “Greased Lightnin’” — certain to put a pep in your step this summer!

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005)

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a sweet tale of four best girlfriends who devise a plan to stay connected with one another during their first summer apart, and as their lives start off in different directions. The girls find a pair of jeans that inexplicably fits them all perfectly, and they decide to share the jeans throughout the summer — appropriately dubbing them the Traveling Pants. The movie soundtrack is a pleasant compilation of acoustic and soft pop favorites sung by many notable female artists, including Natasha Bedingfield, Chantal Kreviazuk and Brandi Carlile.

Dirty Dancing (1987)

Having grown up in privileged surroundings all her life, Baby never imagined that she would fall head over heels for the dance instructor at the resort she’s staying at with her family in upstate New York’s Catskill Mountains — especially because his background is drastically different from hers. Eventually filling in for Johnny’s dance partner, the two fall in love and their relationship must withstand the personal turmoil involving Johnny’s dance partner and by extension, Baby’s unforgiving father. Check out the Dirty Dancing soundtrack for loads of dance-worthy favorites like “Hungry Eyes” and “Be My Baby”.

Our Favorite Audiobooks to Record and Stream Online to Keep You Entertained

Whether you’re relaxing at home or trying to kill time on that long commute into work, listening to an audiobook is the perfect distraction to keep you entertained and your mind engaged. The best thing about an audiobook? You can enjoy your favorite novel, autobiography or informative non-fiction book while doing something else; cooking up a meal for family or friends, out on a run, driving to work or even just gazing out the window… An audiobook really is the perfect companion.  

With thousands of bestselling works being made available as audiobooks every year, there’s endless audio content out there for you to enjoy. If you’re looking for somewhere to start, here are just some of our favorite audiobooks to while away the hours.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Winner of the Best Audiobook (Fiction) at the New York Festival Radio Awards 2020, this outstanding reading of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian classic, The Handmaid’s Tale, is sure to send shivers down your spine. Narrated by Elisabeth Moss, the star of the Hulu television adaptation, The Handsmaid’s Tale tells the story of Offred, a woman subjugated by the patriarchal, totalitarian state of Gilead. The novel jumps between the past and present to recount the tales of Offred and her fellow Handmaids’ attempts to resist the regime, in a thought-provoking commentary on women’s rights, racism, religion, and how quickly and terrifyingly democracy can slip from our fingers. It might not be an easy listen, but it’s worth every moment. 

Available on Amazon and Audible.

Malcolm Gladwell – Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know

Some books come alive in audiobook format, and Malcolm Gladwell’s Talking to Strangers is certainly one of them. In this captivating examination of human behavior and interaction, Gladwell talks to the many people whose knowledge and observations make up the body of this book: scientists, criminologists, psychologists and more, and includes their voices as he asks them probing questions about the world around us and key events in modern history. With a similar feel to a podcast, this is a listening experience that will leave you re-examining how you think about the people around us, and thinking twice about how you interact with the world.

This award-winning exposé will have you gripped.

Bill Bryson – At Home

Known for exploring the furthest corners of the world for his travel writings, this time Bill Bryson stays a little bit closer to home, literally.

In At Home, Bill Bryson takes a tour through the makings of the modern home and pauses on the intriguing idiosyncrasies he finds along the way. This is a calming and fascinating listen that will make you think a little bit more deeply about the place you call home.

You’ll be uplifted, and quite possibly brought to tears. This one is not to be missed.

James Joyce – A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

If you’re looking for a classic, look no further than Colin Farrell’s reading of James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Dublin native Colin Farrell brings a warmth and authenticity to this literary favorite that tells the story of Stephen Dedalus as he tries to find his place in an era defined by burgeoning Irish nationalism and the restrictions of conservative Catholicism.

The Ultimate Summer Road Trip Checklist [2019 Edition]

Looking for a way to add some life to your summer vacation? Getting a group of friends together, picking a destination, packing up your bags, and hitting the road is one of the best ways to enjoy the season before it ends. Nothing beats bonding with your favorite people quite like spending hours together in a road trip to remember. 

If your upcoming summer plans include a road trip, we’ve got the ultimate list of packing essentials, car prep tips, and ideas for recording your favorite entertainment to help you plan the best trip ever.

Pack Only the Essentials

Whether you’re just headed into the city or have a full cross-country drive ahead of you, if your main living space is your vehicle, every bit of space counts. No matter how long your road trip may be, packing only as much as you need in your carry-on or suitcase is the best way to help you save a lot of valuable space. With more space, you’ll have more room for the most essential things like snacks, drinks, games, and most importantly, legroom.

Prep a Basic Emergency Kit

Nothing ruins a trip quite like being stranded in the middle of nowhere with no basic resources. If AAA has you on hold, or if you have no cell signal, having an emergency kit prepared and easily accessible could be a lifesaver. While there are pre-made emergency backpacks that exist for purchase, you can’t be sure they will have every necessity, so we recommend DIY’ing it.

Make sure to include these basic items to be sure you’re all set:

    • Emergency food & water
    • Thermal blankets
    • Flashlight with extra batteries
    • First aid kit
    • Emergency cash
    • Roadmap
    • Car charger for your cell phone
    • Jumper cables

Plan Healthy Foods and Snacks

The fastest way to kill the positive vibe on a road trip? Getting stuck in the car while you’re feeling sick or sluggish. That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan ahead and bring healthier snacks and foods to munch on along the way. Rather than relying on fast food, jerky, chips, and other gas station snacks, having some of these essentials will keep your energy up in the best way:

Sliced vegetables like celery, bell pepper, carrots, cucumber, and broccoli are all packed with nutrients and stay fresh for a long trip.

Fresh berries and fruits like grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, peaches, nectarines, and plums are delicious, vitamin-packed snacks.

Dry items like trail mix, pita chips, dried fruit, protein bars, granola, and pretzels are all great snacks to have on you at all times.

Storable meats and cheeses are a great way to throw together a quick sandwich on the road, or just take a quick piece for some fast protein.

Pro tip: Line your cooler with insulation to keep food fresher longer, and only keep it open as long as you absolutely need to when getting something out. How you pack up your cooler each day makes a difference!

Take a Look Under the Hood

You should treat your car like your own body on a road trip. It needs occasional pampering, a little TLC, and regular check-ups for maximum performance, especially before you put it to work. When the check engine light suddenly pops on or you start feeling a rattling under the hood, it can make any pleasant road trip stressful.

To avoid this, make sure that you take your car into your local mechanic for a regular checkup a few days before taking off, along with prepping a few other things. Here are a few things you should take care of:

    • An oil change, basic tire check, and rotation if needed.
    • Making sure you have wiper fluid all filled up to the brim, and that your wipers are still functional.
    • Putting a recent copy of your insurance information and registration straight into your glovebox for easy access.
    • Cleaning the car inside and out, and making a plan for garbage disposal so things don’t get too messy.

Download the Best Entertainment

When you’re on your trip and have played all the road trip games you can think of, what could be better than turning to your favorite music, show, movie or podcast? Unfortunately for media lovers out there, WiFi isn’t exactly readily available out on the open road and data runs out quickly.

With media-recording software in the Replay Capture Suite, you can download, record, and save all types of online media to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

Record Music: In order to achieve road trip success you must have one essential thing: a playlist. With Replay Music you can easily record any music or entire playlists from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Apple Music, and any other online music site or service that you listen to music on – if you can stream it online, you can capture it forever! With this tool, you’ll never run out of music again. Here’s a playlist that’s full of songs to get your car singing:

Download Podcasts: Replay Radio allows you to download any podcast to listen to any time. Whether you are new to the scene, or for those who are seasoned listeners, Replay Radio makes it simple to download and archive podcasts to listen to anywhere, on any device. And there are a variety of different topics to choose from. Check out some options here

Save Movies and Shows: Replay Video Capture allows you to take any online or streaming video and save it to your own collection! After recording, you can save as just about any file format and access anytime, anywhere. You could record any sports matches for your favorite teams, a classic movie, or even the entire season of the best binge-worthy shows

Grab YouTube Videos: Want to watch your favorites on YouTube without using up all your data? No worries. Catch the videos from the most popular YouTubers, or any original YouTube original series, or even exclusive music videos on-the-go. Replay Media Catcher downloads streaming video and audio files from millions of sites, including YouTube. It allows you to save the downloads to your computer and access them at any time, without having to use your data.

Have you got your destination picked out yet? If not, grab a map, get some tape and a dart, close your eyes and throw. Now you’re almost ready… The next step? Follow this checklist and get ready for the best summer road trip ever. Make sure to download your entertainment with all the great tools in the Replay Capture Suite! Unless you don’t mind playing iSpy on the road for the next 10 hours…

The Ultimate Summer Road Trip Checklist

Looking for something to give life to your summer vacation? Getting a group of friends together, packing up your bags, picking a destination, and hitting the road is one of the best ways to enjoy the season. Nothing is more bonding than spending hours with your best pals, significant other, or close family members, and nothing feels more rewarding than when your feet touch the ground when you finally get there. If your upcoming summer plans include a road trip, we’ve got the perfect list of must-pack items, car preparation tips, and ideas for recording your favorite entertainment to help you plan the best trip ever.

Pack Only the Essentials

Whether you’re just headed into the city or have a full cross-country drive, if your main living space is your vehicle, every bit of space counts. No matter how long your road trip may be, packing into a single carry-on or medium-sized suitcase, as much as you possible will help you save a lot of valuable space. With more space, you’ll have more room for the most essential things, like snacks, drinks, games, and most importantly, legroom.

Prep a Basic Emergency Kit

Nothing ruins a trip quite like being stranded in the middle of nowhere with no basic resources. If AAA has you on hold or you have no cell signal,, having an emergency kit prepared and easily accessible could be a lifesaver. While there are pre-made emergency backpacks that exist for purchase, none will have every necessity, so we recommend DIY’ing it.

These are some basic items to be sure you include, like:

  • Emergency food & water
  • Thermal blankets
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Emergency cash
  • Roadmap
  • Car charger for your cell phone
  • Jumper cables

Plan Healthy Foods and Snacks

There’s nothing worse than feeling sick or sluggish when you’re on a road trip. That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan ahead and bring healthier snacks and foods to munch on along the way. Rather than relying on fast food, jerky, chips, and other gas station snacks, having some of these essentials will keep your energy up in the best way:

Cut vegetables like celery, bell pepper, carrots, cucumber, and broccoli are all packed with nutrients and stay fresh for a long trip.

Fresh berries and fruits like grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, peaches, nectarines, and plums are delicious, vitamin-packed snacks.

Dry items like trail mix, pita chips, dried fruit, protein bars, granola, and pretzels are all great snacks to have on you at all times.

Storable meats and cheeses are a great way to throw together a quick sandwich on the road, or just take a quick piece for some fast protein.

Pro tip: line your cooler with insulation to keep food fresher longer, and only keep it open as long as you absolutely need to when getting something out – how you pack up your cooler each day makes a difference!

Take a Look Under the Hood

You should treat your car like your own body on a road trip. It needs occasional pampering, a little TLC, and regular check-ups for maximum performance, especially before you put it to work. When the check engine light suddenly pops on or you start feeling a rattling under the hood, it can make any pleasant road trip stressful.

To avoid this, we recommend you take your car into your local mechanic for a regular checkup a few days before taking off, along with prepping a few other things. Here are a few things you should take care of:

  • An oil change, basic tire check, and rotation if needed.
  • Making sure you have wiper fluid all filled up to the brim, and that your wipers are still functional.
  • Putting a recent copy of your insurance information and registration straight into your glovebox for easy access.
  • Cleaning the car inside and out, and making a plan for garbage disposal so things don’t get too messy.

Download the Best Entertainment

When you’re on your trip and have played all the road trip games you can think of, what could be better than turning to your favorite music, show, movie or podcast? Unfortunately for media lovers out there, WiFi isn’t exactly readily available out on the open road and data runs out quickly.  With media-recording software in the Replay Capture Suite, you can download, record, and save all types of online media to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

Record Music: In order to achieve road trip success you must have one essential thing: a playlist.
