Beach Must Haves: Tunes

Its almost here. I can pretty much smell the beach already. Saturday morning will be a blessing. One thing though is for sure, I love music: Folk, Top 40, Oldies, Country, Christian, 90s, Rock - okay, you get the point.

So when thinking about approximately a 10 hour drive to the beach, the music you listen to is important. I find my biggest struggle is finding appropriate music. Now, the Bible does not spell out a playlist for you, but it does set out guidelines for life that teach us how to evaluate the content of the music we listen to:

1 Corinthians 10:23 explains it this way:
"All things are lawful," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful," but not all things build up.
And Romans 14:13:
"Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother." 
When I look for music, I try to find songs that are helpful, build up, and is not going to cause another to stumble in their faith.

Now for the part you really want, suggestions to add to your playlist. Admittedly, I am going to be in a car of all girls, so boy bands and Spice Girls are always fair game. So here are my suggestions:
