Best Summer Songs


The Top Ten

1 The 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.

2 I Get Around - The Beach Boys
3 Summer Jam - R.I.O.

Best summer song E>V>E>R

4 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

5 Hot in Herre - Nelly
6 Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys
7 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I love this song! It's so good!

8 Glad You Came - The Wanted
9 California Gurls - Katy Perry
10 My Generation - The Who

The Contenders

11 Summer 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.

12 Summer - Calvin Harris
13 Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys

Wan't this by Marky Mark? - ProPanda

14 Give Me Everything - Pitbull
15 Summertime Sadness - Lana Del Rey
16 Summer Paradise - Simple Plan
17 Monster - 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.

18 Surfin' Safari - The Beach Boys
19 Thong Song - Sisqo
20 Mrs. Robinson - Simon & Garfunkel
21 Waiting for Tonight - Jennifer Lopez
22 Hot Summer - Monrose
23 We Are Young - Fun
24 Surfin' Safari - Jan and Dean
25 Roll Over Beethoven - The Beatles
26 Starships - Nicki Minaj
27 In the Summertime - Mungo Jerry
28 Summer of Love - Cascada
29 Rock Lobster - The B-52s
30 Counting Stars - OneRepublic
31 Summer Love - Mark Medlock
32 Three Lions - Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds

The World cup is a summer tradition once every 4 years. As is this song.
