It’s about that time of year when the fortunate begin planning their spring break vacation, and the rest of us put on this playlist instead.

1. “Drunk On A Plane” by Dierks Bentley.
Taking us away is Dierks Bentley and his 2014 single, “Drunk On A Plane.” Bentley has won a string of awards including video of the year for this song in 2014. “Drunk on a Plane” is the third single from Bentley’s seventh album titled Riser. The fun, uplifting storyline of the video matched with Bentley’s catchy lyrics will have you fighting the urge to call your local travel agent.

2. “Some Beach” by Blake Shelton.
If the cold weather is finally hitting and the week has been too long, Blake Shelton’s classic, “Some Beach” can help. The song is from the album, Blake Shelton’s Bar & Grill, and stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for four weeks after being released in 2004.

3. “Suntan City” by Luke Bryan.
Nothing says spring break like lyrics about coconut bras, beaches, and cold ones. This song was one of the four tracks from Bryan’s 2012 album, Spring Break 4… Suntan City. The song regained popularity in 2013 after Bryan released, Spring Break… Here to Party, which included the song again.

4. It’s Five O’ Clock Somewhere” by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett.
It would not be an imaginary spring break without the need for an imaginary drink. Jackson and Buffett’s massive hit was written by Jim “Moose” Brown and Don Rollins. Brown first offered the song to our next artist on the list, but he turned down the offer.

Kenny Chesney’s song, “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems” encapsulates the peacefulness of a reggae ballad while still keeping Chesney’s country rooted sound. The song was released back in 2002, and even claimed the title of the album.
