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 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

3 I Get Around - The Beach Boys
4 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.

5 Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Jurgen Klinsmann? - Tonedef Allstars

Funny little comedy song that was associated with the 2006 World Cup. The title is a play of the Dad's Army theme song Who do you think you are Kidding Mr Hitler.

6 Summer Jam - R.I.O.

Best summer song E>V>E>R

7 In the Morning - Razorliight
8 Hot in Herre - Nelly
9 Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys
10 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

I love this song! It's so good!

The Newcomers

? Bailar - Deorro

The ultimate summer song. Listen to it and you will know why. - Userguy44

11 We Are Young - Fun
12 Glad You Came - The Wanted
13 My Generation - The Who
14 Wavin' Flag - K'naan
15 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.
