"We back and we back and we back and we back..."

Intersections is back and bursting at the seams with stories of our cultural romps from summer 2013 and, of course, our critical musings of said romps. In classic Intersections fashion, we're going to start off the year by sharing with you our own favorite songs of these summer months. While classes tomorrow officially mark the end of vacation, no one can stop you from putting on your over-sized headphones and blasting these tunes while the weather is still warm. And, let's be real here, summer blow-outs Daft Punk, Jay Z, and Vampire Weekend are bound to linger in your fall playlists a little while longer.

So here goes, Intersections staff presents you our top tunes of summer 2013.

Here are our staff's favorites. Also check out the Spotify playlist at the end for a complete list! Enjoy!
