Songs of Summer

      7 Comments on Songs of Summer

While it may have already felt like it, summer is officially here.  There are many days days ahead to spend on the porch sipping iced coffee and reading a book.  There will be countless refreshing smoothies enjoyed in the sun.  And hopefully a few days spent relaxing on the beach and dipping our toes in the water.  For many of you, there will be short weekend trips, longer vacations and hopefully for all of us, lots of fun!


While I don’t currently have any trips or vacations planned (boo!), I do hope there will be plenty of car rides with the windows rolled down, sunroof open and music blaring loudly as the wind rushes my hair all around. The songs of summer.  The songs we deem our summer soundtrack.

Today, I want to give two of my nominations for summer’s soundtrack:

GooGoo Dolls “Rebel Beat”



Imagine Dragons “Radioactive”



It’s those simple joys of summer that get me excited!


Tell me – what are your votes for the songs of summer?

    I’ll have to check those songs out I’d not heard of them before.

    For summer I love anything uplifting and upbeat. Jamiroquai can be great like ‘7 Days in sunny June’ is a good one.

    Song of the moment (which will therefore be one of my songs of this summer) is “Blurred Lines” – I cannot get enough of that song. I have different songs that remind me of different summers though. That’s what’s so great about music, right? It takes you back to when you first heard it.

    When I was in college, my ‘Songs of Summer’ mix CD was always a very well-thought-out combination of perfectly composed and arranged songs with a nice rise and fall….made me feel like a producer or something. I have to say that I just love country music in the summer–balk if you will. “I Want Crazy” by Hunter Hayes, and Lady Antebellum’s new album are winners in my book. I also am loving the solo offering by my favorite musician EVER–Stephen Kellogg. His new CD is phenomenal. Of course, I always go back to old favorites that just bring back summer memories: Passion Pit’s “Little Secrets” + Counting Crows’ “Hard Candy” come to mind right away.

    Should I go on? 🙂
