1. Summer Girls by LFO
This is just an overall feel-good song. Most of the lyrics don’t make sense, but it’s still incredibly fun to sing and will bring an instant smile to your face! As far as summer themed songs go, this is definitely one of my favorites!
2. Summer Breeze by Jason Mraz
This is a song that is originally by Seals & Croft, but I absolutely love Jason Mraz’s rendition of it! He has such a nice voice and he plays the song so sweetly that it’s incredibly soothing to listen to. It’s a great song to listen to while you’re relaxing in a hammock outside. It simply fills your head with all sorts of sunny summery images.
3. All Summer Long by Kid Rock
This song will make you think back to your long ago summers hanging out with all of your friends… or will be a great background song to play while you hang out with your friends now! It’s very versatile and upbeat! I have to admit, I didn’t like this song when it first came out, but now I love it and sing all the words whenever it comes on the radio!
4. Cruise by Florida Georgia Line and Nelly
This is my go-to song when I’m driving around. It just puts me in a good mood! It’s fun, upbeat and a great song to sing along to while you’re cruising around. You will find yourself doing exactly as the song says: roll your windows down and turn the radio up!
5. Long Hot Summer by Keith Urban
This is a great “summer love” song all about wanting to be together during the hot summer days as well as the summer nights! Whether you’re experiencing a summer fling or are spending the summer with the love of your life, this is a fantastic song to listen to both alone and together.
6. Summer Nights by Olivia Newton John and John Travolta
This is a CLASSIC summer song! Everyone knows the words to it, no matter how old you are and it’s super fun to sing with friends…especially at karaoke night! Who doesn’t love the combination of Olivia Newton John and John Travolta singing about their recent summer love affair and telling their friends all the sordid details?!
7. The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars
Technically, this isn’t a “summer” song, I know. But I personally feel super lazy all summer and I love listening to and singing this song when I’m having those I-Don’t-Want-to-do-Anything days! It’s a song about all of the important things you’re putting off for another day and all of the relaxing things you’ll be doing while you take a day off from life. Love it!
I hope these summer themed songs give you something to jam to the last month and a half of summer! I love listening to songs that relate well to what I’m experiencing at the current place I am in my life, and summer songs definitely do that. What summer themed songs do you just love?
