Top Summer Songs


Recommended Posts

NME had some help from artists picking the top summer songs and good ole' Chris gave his input and came out at #5 with Hot in Herre by Nelly "This is an amazing summer song. Sometimes I listen to it and think, ‘God, we haven’t got a song as good as that.'"




So this made me think, we all have really good taste in music and we seem to do a lot of playlist, top album, music things on here. So what about the Ultimate Summer Playlist? Who would you put on it?


For me I always think of summer as driving in your car with windows down and blasting music. So I wouldn't mind jamming out to: The Hives- Hate to say I told you so

^ I agree with that one. I also fancy "Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani, "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley/The Eagles, and "Hella Good" by No Doubt... along with MANY others that will come to my mind later I'm sure... :)

Obviously lots of Coldplay songs are great for summer like Lovers In Japan or Strawberry Swing, but for me summer is a time for quintessential pop music, like Summer Girls by LFO or even songs like California Gurls by Katy Perry. Summer is a time to move to a catchy beat, so it's the one time I find myself listening to a lot of popular stuff. Chelsea Dagger by The Fratellis and any of the songs by The Kooks are great too
