Summer Sounds

on June 26, 2012


I was laying by the pool yesterday on one of those plastic white lounge chairs enjoying the sounds of the pool when a song came on the radio that made me feel summer.

There are just some songs that are “summer songs.”. They would transport you to the beach in the middle of a snow storm!

Here are some of my favorite tunes I associate with pools, beaches and bathing suits.

-“Magic” by the Cars
(All of you youngsters will have to go look them up on iTunes.)
Also by the Cars-
“My Best Friends Girl”
“You Might Think”
“Just What I Needed”

-“Put Your Records On”
By Corinne Bailey Rae
Also “Like A Star”

-“Soak Up The Sun”
By Sheryl Crow

-“California Gurls”
(Yes that’s how they spelled it)
By Katie Perry with Snoop Dog

-“Free Fallin’ ”
By Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

-“Island In The Sun”
By Weezer
Also “Surf Wax America”

-“Steal My Sunshine”
By Len

-“Sittin’ On The Dock of the Bay
By Otis Redding
(Probably the best poolside song!)

-“Lovely Day”
By Bill Withers

-“American Girls”
By Counting Crows

-“Love Like This”
By Natasha Bedingfield

-“Wavin’ Flag”
By K’naan

And of course any song by the soul of summer himself,
Bob Marley!

My faves of his are:
“Stir It Up”
“No Woman, No Cry”
“One Love”

I hope this inspires you to make up your own new summer playlist.
Feel free to share what your favorite songs are.
