Music is the perfect complement to a day outside. Whether you are having a lively party or just looking to relax in the sun, there are so many options to choose from! As your backyard headquarters, Pinch A Penny is here to help you create an awesome playlist for the pool or patio.
Upbeat or laid back? Are you having some friends over or will it be just you? The scene will help you determine the feel of your playlist. If you are having a holiday bash or some other large celebration, a playlist of throwback favorites or upbeat dance and electronic music will help to set the stage. If you are solo, then maybe you prefer something more chill. Think of some light electronic music or chilled out reggae beats. Go with what you like, there are no wrong answers!
Don’t be redundant! A playlist with too many similar songs or songs by the same artist can get stale easily. Try to mix it up with different artists of the same genre. That way you have the same theme, but it doesn’t get repetitive. Throw in some deep cuts or lesser-known tracks, as well.
Music is a great thing to share! Listen to feedback to adjust your playlist. Take some requests or suggestions from artists you may not have discovered yet. You can also invite people to add to your playlist, that way everyone feels involved and can choose something they like. The main point is to have fun with it!
