Summer break is finally here. It’s time to kick back, relax and have some fun in the sun! Here are some great songs to get you in the summer mood.
Drift Away – Uncle Kracker
The perfect song for sitting on the porch and relaxing, or driving down a back road with the windows down. This tune is a classic summer song.
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock ‘n’ roll and drift away
Pontoon – Little Big Town
Spending the day out on the water? Then this is the perfect song for you. Crack open a cold one, sit back and enjoy the rocking of the boat as Little Big Town’s harmonies put you in a good mood.
Making waves and catching rays up on the roof,
Jumping out the back, don’t act like you don’t want to,
Party in slow motion,
Out here in the open,
Soak Up the Sun – Sheryl Crow
Eternally optimistic, this song is perfect for putting you in a good mood and making you want to get outside and catch some rays.
I’m gonna soak up the sun,
I’m gonna tell everyone to lighten up
California Gurls – Katy Perry ft. Snoop Dogg
Dominating the charts in 2010 and becoming an instant summer classic, Katy Perry showed the pop girlies how to write a summer smash hit. This is the perfect song to blast with the windows down while you sing-scream on a beautiful summer day.
We’ll melt your popsicle
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift
Speaking of songs that are great to scream while you drive with the windows down. This is the perfect song for when your on-again, off-again college boyfriend/girlfriend decides they want to be single for the summer. But it’s fine, you’re better off without them.
Ah, so he calls me up and he’s like, “I still love you,”
And I’m like, I’m just, I mean this is exhausting, you know?
Like we are never getting back together, like, ever
Fantasy – Mariah Carey
No one was doing it like Queen Mimi in the 90s. This song will get caught in your head and you’ll be singing it at your summer job, chilling with friends or sitting at home in the ac. It’s fine though because it’s just that good.
Oh, when you walk by every night,
Talking sweet and looking fine,
I get kind of hectic inside
Summer of ‘69 – Bryan Adams
Throwing it back to a summer classic from 1984. This is the perfect song for reminiscing on past summer memories. Bryan Adams leads us on a nostalgic journey down memory lane that makes it impossible to not think of your favorite moments from summers gone by, while making us appreciate the current summer too.
Those were the best days of my life,
Back in the summer of ‘69, oh
Margaritaville – Jimmy Buffet
The perfect song for making it feel like it’s five o’clock and you’re on a beach. Jimmy Buffet makes you want to relax and sit back with a nice margarita with a salted rim. If it’s especially hot, go for a frozen one. Either way, it’s time to waste away again in Margaritaville.
But there’s booze in the blender,
And soon it will render,
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
