‘These Days’ by Rudimental
This song was released in 2018 and features Jess Glynne, Macklemore, and Dan Caplen. It's a catchy song that's loved by all generations. There's just enough repetition to get younger kids interested, and there's a sense of nostalgia about the song that we believe makes it a modern-day classic. We guarantee you'll look back at this song one day with fond memories of summer 2020.
‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl?’ by Jet
This song, released in 2003, definitely deserves a place on our Spotify summer playlist! It’s upbeat, catchy, while also being very family-friendly. There are no words you need to worry about, and your kids will love to get up and dance to this hit.
‘Watermelon Sugar’ by Harry Styles
This recent chart-topper is a great addition to this year's summer playlist! This song is all about the special feeling of summer. Your kids will love it, and we think you’ll become quite addicted, too.
‘Roar’ by Katy Perry
Who doesn’t love this song? This pop-rock classic is just what you need to get the adrenaline pumping. This motivational song is all about gaining independence and speaking up for yourself — values we advocate here at Jooki.

‘I Gotta Feeling’ by Black Eyed Peas
This song is so feel-good and upbeat, we can’t imagine anyone not liking it. It’s a great song for kids to sing along to on a long car ride, and it’s one parents will love hearing, too.
‘Trolls Wanna Have Good Times’ by Trolls World Tour
Trolls World Tour was released this year, and kids are obsessed. We don’t blame them. There’s nothing like a troll cover to get you in a good mood. This song is sure to please your kids, and we bet that, secretly, even parents will be enthused to have this on their Spotify summer playlist.
‘When I Am Older’ by Olaf the Snowman
This might sound like a strange addition to a summer playlist, but we couldn’t resist. As well as Trolls World Tour, Frozen 2 is a recently-released movie that has captured the hearts of kids all over the world. Any Spotify summer playlist without at least one Frozen 2 song will be sure to disappoint your kids, and we can’t have that!
This summer, take the time to educate and communicate with your kids on important matters. Check out our advice on how to talk about diversity with children.
‘You're Welcome’ by Maui
We're on a roll with amazing movies. In this song, Dwayne Johnson sings as Maui, a demigod with a massive ego. The movie is full of songs that remind us of summer, fun, and excitement. This is one we believe will get the kids laughing — and entertain the adults in the room.
‘The Hippopotamus’ by Planet Smashers
This is a silly, upbeat song your kids will love to dance around to in the garden. It’s a song that tells your kids what dance moves to make, so even the most reluctant will feel encouraged to dance away! Parents will love the music, and it’ll save you having to listen to your kid’s favorite Disney song for the thousandth time! Is your kid a fan of audiobooks?

‘Shake It off’ by the Sing Cast
The incredible Sing movie features animals that are competing in a singing competition. There are a lot of classics in this movie, but for this summer, we think Shake it Off is a track you and your kids will love. It’s a little addictive, though, so you have been warned — your kids might want to listen to it repeatedly.
‘Everything Is AWESOME’ from The Lego Movie
Like Trolls, the Lego Movie is a feel-good film that appeals to everyone, regardless of age or music preferences. Everything is AWESOME is, quite simply, awesome. It’ll unite your entire family and lift everyone’s mood. It’s the perfect addition to your Spotify summer playlist.
‘Life Is a Highway’ from Cars
We mentioned long trips this summer. If this is on the cards for you, Life is a Highway is the perfect song for your playlist! The song is from the Disney movie Cars, but it’s so good it sounds like a hit in its own right, so we think adults and kids will love to sing along to this track.

‘I'm a Believer’ by Smash Mouth
I’m a Believer is a track that dates back to 1966 when the Monkees made it an instant hit. It was rereleased by Smash Mouth in 2001 to accompany Shrek, and it’s been a favorite ever since. People love this up-tempo, feel-good song, and it seems perfect to accompany the summer months.
‘Splish Splash’ by Bobby Darin
Bobby Darin released this song in 1958, and who would have thought it would still be popular in 2020? There’s something undeniably catchy about this song that kids just latch on to, making it a great fit for any family summer soundtrack.
‘Jump around’ by House of Pain
While we’re talking about classics, Jump Around is a great way to get your kids to work off that extra energy! We guarantee your family will love and bond over this song, which never seems to get old.
