I decided to create the Ultimate Beach Playlist to enhance the smell of salty air and waves crashing against my feet for an upcoming family vacation to the Atlantic. I was shocked when task became a little more challenging than I expected. It’s not easy to choose the perfect mix of steal drums and relaxing acoustic sounds. It’s much harder than I thought. Too much Marley (or Buffett for that matter) could overpower the melodious rhythms of the ultimate beach playlist.
I need help! Below is my current ultimate beach playlist. What songs have I missed?

Pet Sounds, from start to finish. #beachboys
