Summer songs

What are the songs that simply remind you of summer the moment you hear them? I thought it would be fun to list my top 10 and see if you ladies had any to add!

Here they are in no particular order:

1. Escape (The Pina Colada Song) – Rupert Holmes
2. Margaritaville – Jimmy Buffett
3. Waterfalls – TLC
4. Boys of Summer – Don Henley
5. Tennessee – Arrested Development
6. Toy Soldiers – Martika
7. Love Will Never Do Without You – Janet Jackson
8. Ants Marching – Dave Matthews Band
9. Summertime – DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince
10. Shimmer - Fuel

I am sure that I could probably think of about 50 more, as these are some of the first one's that came to mind.

Great...now I've got "Escape" stuck in my head. Seriously, though, every time it comes on the radio I crank up the volume!! :-)

My summer faves include anything by Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney and Jack Johnson!

Quotes from the Queen said...

Under the Boardwalk by The Drifters reminds me of summer, especially at the beach!

I'm drawing a blank...but the one they played to death last summer by Kid Rock. He sampled the beat from Jack & Diane. It's funny I don't even like this song, but everytime I hear it...it makes me think of summer.

I love summer music. I am sad reading this post though, because summer seems to pass within the blink of an eye. Where I live, all of the schools start back on Monday and my college classes start mid-august. It's just crazy!! I love the excitement that the beginning of summer brings. =)

Hey Miss Jules! I love your list- and I don't know all of those songs on there (by title anyway) I would have to say Kenny Chesney, and Escapade by Janet Jackson would be on my list :-) Have a good weekend!!

Kathie @ my net finds said...

Great list! I totally thought of Summertime when I read the post title :-) I like Becky's suggestion too, Richard Marx...completely forgot about that guy! :-)

I agree with the All Summer Long's by Kid Rock & I would add Six Pack Summer by Phil Vassar.

Kassie said...

I'm SUCH a country fan, so when it comes to summer songs that's all I can think of! "All summer long" "sweet summertime" are two favories.

Tracy-Girl said...

Anything by the Beach Boys and Rascal Flatts remind me of summer!

its hard to say all the songs that i love for summer. i think it depends more on my mood. i love music. i agree with you that escape, waterfalls, love will never do without you are great songs. i also love richard marx and other similar songs too. i think i would say that the song "summer breeze" would be my fav one for summer. i just feel so good when i hear it. it reminds me of being by the beach on a nice relaxing day.
