NAVARRE BEACH — Sometimes you just need a little mood music to relax.
In May, Santa Rosa County rolled out its new marketing campaign touting Navarre Beach as "Florida's Relaxing Place." As part of the campaign, the advertising firm Paradise Advertising rolled out a new website, Getrelaxing.com. The entire campaign highlights the laid-back atmosphere of Navarre Beach.
As part of the "relaxing" theme, Paradise Advertising recently released an accompanying playlist.

Mary Jane Kolassa, public relations account director for Paradise, said the compilation was comprised of recommendations from a diverse pool of music lovers from "millennials to baby boomers."
"It's a very subjective list, but we tried to be in-tune with the Navarre Beach visitor," Kolassa said. "There's some beach tunes with a little bit of country."
Tunes include a little bit of everything from country hits like "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem," Brazilian musician Seu Jorge and of course some Jimmy Buffet. As part of their research into relaxing songs, Kolassa said they also came across a list of recommended tunes from artists like Enya used by sound therapists. You can find that list on makeuseof.com.
Even if you can't make it to the beach, the playlist could be a great way to escape your surroundings and, well, relax.
"Use our recommendations or add some of your favorite songs," Kolassa said. "It's about relaxing, not stressing out about the playlist."
