summer playlist help

I need your help, Lovelies!  Every summer I put together a playlist of super-jams that become the soundtrack for the year, and I’m working on 2012’s as we speak.  I would love to know some of your favorite summer songs — I’m looking for stuff that sounds like a sunny day and makes you want to either dance or sing along.  What are your faves?

A couple of my newer faves are Jessie J’s Domino (that chick has the realest pipes since Christina Aguilera) and Tightrope by Janelle Monae (the dancing in that video is so amazing!).  There’s also obviously always room for the classics — James Taylor, The Beach Boys, and the like.  So whatcha got?  Introduce me to some new tunes!  xoxo

  1. Moonglow, from Picnic. It’s not exactly about summer, but Picnic is about a town at 4th of July? Labor Day? one of those warm holidays. One of my fave movies of all time.

  2. And of course, Summertime, a 60’s song I think? “We’ll go swimming…..every daaaaay….It’s summertime summertime sum sum summertime…..

  3. Classic? You want “classic”….Nat King Cole
    Those Lazy, Hazy Crazy Days of Summer; I’m
    Sure the title is mixed, BUT…it’s an oldie (REAL
    OLD) but a goodie!

  4. Change of Seasons by Sweet Thing
    Paradise by Coldplay
    Princess Of China by Coldplay & Rihanna
    Called Out in the Dark by Snow Patrol
    About Us by Neverest
    Sink or Swim by Tyrone Wells

    Hope you like them. 🙂

  5. If you’re going on a roadtrip adventure in the summer:

    Into the Wild by the band L.P. Makes you want to drive forever!

  6. Hi Chelsea!

    What a smarty pants idea to get a great soundtrack together for the car, parties and just hanging out at home. Love it! Some of my FAVOURITE songs right now are really summery and lots of fun. Here are my suggestions:

    Anything by “Young The Giant”.
    ’12 Fingers’ is really fun.

    LOVE ‘Young Empires”.
    ‘White Doves’ is an open your car windows and just drive kind of song.

    And of course, anything by Bob Marley.

    Have fun!

  7. Such a great idea, I might have to steal it. 🙂 Lately, I’ve been obsessed with anything by Michael Franti and anything by the Civil Wars.

  8. There are two tunes that scream summer to me: “It’s my Party”, from Lesley Gore, and Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up”. This last one, in particular, it’s what I think folks listen when the hydrant is off and kids are jumpin’ around on the street in a hot day.

  9. Ugh, I hate myself for it, but I’ve jumped on the Nicki Minaj train..Starships is my OFFICIAL song for the summer. LOVE! Just stopped by your blog for the first time, love it too!
