It’s been six months since we were first blessed with the sun-soaked dream that is a touch of the beat gets you up on your feet gets you out and then into the sun. And ever since Aly & AJ have taken over our listening history. Even in the dead of fall and the start of winter, we find ourselves remembering nicer days when we put on this record. It’s total and pure bliss.
Now that we have had half a year to sit on these songs and really connect with them, we’ve put together a list of the five tracks we just keep turning back to. These songs are sure to show up on our wrapped lists, they’re just that good.

All picture-perfect summer nights should have ‘Pretty Places’ as the backing track. We hadn’t heard a song better suited for that situation in such a long time. We have a feeling that this track will be a staple for summer for years to come.
‘Symptom of Your Touch’
We want to be walking down the street in Los Angeles on the sunniest day imaginable with this song blaring from invisible speakers like we’re the main characters in a movie. Everything about ‘Symptom of Your Touch’ is pure gold.
On a record that feels like pure sunshine, ‘Stomach’ is the moment where you could have a full-on breakdown. The lyrics are just heartbreaking, especially the line “I just can’t stomach being your ex-wife.” Knowing ‘Stomach’ comes from such a personal place makes it all the more tragically beautiful.
We’ve been talking about the perfect summer night track, but ‘Paradise’ is the perfect summer day track. You can’t help but be in the absolute best mood while listening to this musical embodiment of sunshine.
‘Don’t Need Nothing’
‘Don’t Need Nothing’ is the track that the album title hails from! Three minutes and twenty-three seconds of pure serotonin. Right along with ‘Pretty Places,’ ‘Don’t Need Nothing’ makes the perfect backing track to a summer night.
