Nothing pairs better with the warm Summer weather than a hot playlist. The long days make you want to roll down the windows and drive around for hours.

Looking to bop to some of 2017's sweetest Summer jams with your little ones? We vetted the most current and wildly popular tunes out there to craft a list of songs just for you. No sexy talk, no major curse words, just high energy and catchy beats.

If the little boy in the superhero cape is any indication, this song is all about reaching for the stars . . . and expecting the moon, too.

This has to be one of the most beautiful love songs of the year so far. And it's got a lovely beat to boot.
"How Far I'll Go," Alessia Cara
Moana's breakout song was good enough all by itself, but when paired with the angelic voice of Alessia Cara, it's that much more incredible.
