Best Summer Songs


The Top TenXW

1The Summer Knows - Jackie Evancho

Beautifully done. Sounds like summer. - BobG

Sings this song like an older famous singer, instead a 12 year old super star!

Michael Legrand's wonderful theme song from "The Summer of '42". Jackie makes it her own with Jumaane Smith's wonderful accompaniment on the trumpet.

2I Get Around - The Beach Boys
3Summer Jam - R.I.O.V1 Comment
4Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys
5Hot in Herre - Nelly
6California Gurls - Katy Perry
7Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I love this song! It's so good!

8Glad You Came - The Wanted
9My Generation - The Who
10Summer In the City - The Lovin' Spoonful

"Hot town, summer in the city,
Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty,
Cool cat, looking for a kitty,
Gonna look in every corner of the city"
Awesome summer-themed lyrics; John Sebastian is an under-appreciated songwriter.

The Newcomers

?Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams
?School's Out - Alice Cooper

It has become tradition for me to play this song as loud as possible when I'm leaving school on the last day. It makes me sad that I only have 1 more year left of high school to play it. - Jonerman

The Contenders

11Summer - Calvin Harris
12Good Vibrations - The Beach BoysV1 Comment
13Summer Paradise - Simple Plan
14Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey
15Monster - The Automatic Automatic

The video for this song suggests that the monster referenced is the Scottish Legend that is Loch Ness Monster. Bizzare considering that The Automatic is a Welsh indie band.

16Give Me Everything - Pitbull
17Surfin' Safari - The Beach Boys
18Thong Song - Sisqo
19Mrs. Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel
20Hot Summer - Monrose
