Gold Dust Woman, Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac’s iconic “Rumours” album is a great throwback jam! Stevie Nicks’ husky vocals accompanied by folk drumming creates a rock ‘n’ roll sound that makes this song unique. “Gold Dust Woman” is a staple song for anyone’s classic rock playlist.

Bad 4 Us, Superfruit

These a cappella veterans just released this tune last summer. It has an old school feel — but with a modern twist! Although it’s a departure from their Pentatonix days, this song's tight harmonies mixed with a cheerful beat make it the epitome of groovy.

Woman, Harry Styles

This song is a combination of mellow, cheery and the hint of rock ’n’ roll will make you forget you’re listening to a post boy band member. The dialogue at the beginning is a breath of fresh air! While you contemplate which celebrity this song is about, don’t forget to add "Woman" to your playlist.

Sunday Candy, Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment

This catchy tune will brighten anyone’s long commute with its upbeat vocals and sensational drumbeats. Although “Sunday Candy” is one of the older songs on our list, Chance the Rapper’s melodic lyrics are timeless.
