You reek of salt and rosé, it’s five in the afternoon and it’s still a burning 28 degrees outside. You just got inside the car, rolled the windows down, and now you’re considering how bad the traffic from Batroun/Jiyyeh to Beirut is going to be. You’ve had it with “the summer hit” they’ve been playing at the beach resort all day. You want to connect your phone already. These are the songs you want to play. This is the playlist you want to have. Bless you, May.
