2) Solar Power- Lorde

My cheeks in high color, overripe peaches
No shirt, no shoes, only my features

Lead the boys and girls onto the beaches
Come one, come all, I’ll tell you my secrets
I’m kinda like a prettier Jesus

Get it, let it roll

4) Driver’s License- Olivia Rodrigo

And I know we weren’t perfect but I’ve never felt this way for no one

‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

Here’s to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not

‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you
