Music: Summer songs.........

Do you ever hear songs that when you first listen to them - you hate the song - but when summer rolls around and you're driving with the windows down....the wind blowing in your hair.... you hear them again and the same song you hated three months ago now sounds perfect?

This happens to me quite frequently - so here are a few songs that I previously couldn't stand to listen to that I now play full blast when they come on the radio....just because they feel like summer to me.

First up!
Sleigh Bells - "Tell Em": This song used to give me a headache (and sometimes still does)! But now I love driving around with it's kind of in your face but it grows on you!

The Drums - "Let's go Surfing": This song is cute and laid back & I love the last chorus - very summery:

"Down, down baby
Down by the rollercoaster
Sweet, sweet baby
I'll never let you go"

OK - I never hated this song - Weezer "Island in the Sun": It's my FAVORITE summer cute - it never fails to cheer me up. LOVE LOVE LOVE the video!!

What are your favorite summer songs? Are there songs that you only like at certain times of the year?


  1. I listen to a lot of pop-rock in the summer. I made a mix cd of nothing but All Time Low and I tend to jam out to that a lot.

  2. phin & Ferb (disney show)
    muse & one republic

  3. *sigh* I miss lisening to Weezer. Island in the Sun, Pork and Beans, and Let it ALl Hang Out are my favs from them.

    In the summer I'm more amenable to dumb-ish pop ditties. :-) It's all in fun!

  4. Just stopping by all the blogs I follow – Thought I would check in with everyone! Stop by The Wormhole if you get a chance!

  5. I think i'm going through an electro rock phase at the moment. My top songs are Five Trees by Chapel Club, Something Good Can Work by Two Door Cinema Club, Best Friend by The Drums, Sometime Around Midnight by The Airborne Toxic Event and Death by The White Lies.
    Check 'em out Karen i think you would like them especially the last two which are my ultimate faves! :-)
