WUNC is working with several teen reporters this summer. The young people are learning Journalism 101 from seasoned NPR and WUNC reporters.

On their first day on the job, we asked each reporter to recommend a song. The idea is to pull together a fun 2014 summer playlist for you.

Here are the recommendations.

Jamayah Parrish: "Pumped up Kicks" by Foster the People:

Thar Thwai: "Stay High" by Tove Lo

Emmanuel Johnson: "Snare" by Mellowhype

Lili Morales: "I Luh Ya Papi" by Jennifer Lopez

Chelsea Korynta: "Applause" by Lady Gaga

Morgan Manson: "Trophies" by Drake

And as a bonus, 2 of our leaders give their favorites:

Kamayah Truitt: "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea

Lauren Spohrer: "Dark Horse" by Katy Perry
