It’s time for May’s We Hear, which means five songs hand picked for sunny weather enjoyment. First off is a nice upbeat offering from Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., followed up by a slightly more off-kilter song from Blue Hawaii. No spring playlist, no matter how short, is complete without an R&B number, so Miguel and Kendrick Lamar fill that void with How Many Drinks, a song (and video) they clearly had a bit of fun making. Daft Punk’s latest offering adds a bit of tempo and shows that they’ve still got it. Pharrell’s voice lends itself nicely to the peppy sonic backdrop the French outfit provide. Finally, one from last year, Lana del Rey’s National Anthem may have a slightly gratuitous video but, it’s a great song and perfect for hot nights.
