August provides us a last chance to soak up the sun at the seaside before the cool breezes of fall arrive. Even if swelter in canyons of steel all month and never make it to the shore, we dream of the exotic intensity of far off beach locations. One such location that remains perennially at the top of the list is Rio de Janeiro.

We may not be able to send you off to Rio to cap off your summer but this Brazilian themed playlist will whisk you away to the land of suntanned hotties, caipirinhas and Bossa Nova. Just don’t blame us if you end up humming the infinitely memorable August Day Song well into next month.
