Summer soundtrack

Every summer a new crop of music comes out and from then on whenever I hear the song, whether it be in the dead of winter or a few years later, it reminds me of that particular summer and all the fun memories to go along with it.

Here are some songs that I’m loving so far this summer:

OMG – Usher featuring Will.I.Am
Your Love is my Drug – Ke$ha
Alejandro – Lady GaGa
Airplanes – B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams
California Gurls – Katy Perry
Hey, Soul Sister – Train
All The Lovers – Kylie Minogue
Can’t Be Tamed – Miley Cyrus

I realize about half the songs on this list are most likely favorites of people half my age, but they’re catchy and I can’t help it!

What songs are you loving so far this summer? I’m always looking for new music to add to my playlist.

Great list! I have been listening to lots of John Mayer and Oasis lately. The new songs I am in to are pretty typical. I kind of love OneRepublic. Sad, I know.

I'll have to listen to all of these. Thanks for sharing. I'm always open to new music ideas for my Ipod. :)

Beautiful picture!

Some of my faves this summer are:
Katie Herzig ~ Songbird
A fine frenzy ~ Happier, and a bunch more of hers :)
Taylor Swift ~ Tim Mcgraw (for some reason whenever I listen to this song it reminds me of Summer at county fair)
Vanessa Carlton ~ White houses (I never get sick of this song!)

I can't get the Katy Perry song out of my head! The part where she says "sunkissed skin so hot we'll melt you popsicles" cracks me up every single time!

Politics and Pearls said...

Love all your picks!!

I agree with you about the Katy Perry song. I love TikTok by Ke$ha especially the line The Party don't start till I walk in.
I should probably not admit to being almost 55 LOL. Rude Boy by Rhianna, Bulletproof by LaRoux and Telephone by Lady Gaga are on my summmer playlist.
That's what I love so far but I bet there is many more.
Love & Hugs,
Pam

I love every song on this list! Except Hey Soul Sister.. because here, it has been played over and over and now annoys me lol. I hate when radio stations do that and ruin a good song!

Gwen said...

Girl I can't stand that Ke$ha girl. Ellie loves her but I want to scream every time I hear her voice. LOL!!!! I hope we can still be friends anyways. :) XOXO

Might sound weird, but I'm rocking the Lee DeWyze songs from Idol. I downloaded a lot of them including the duet he did with Crystal Bowersox.

I've been playing Bob Marley a lot lately, too (I do ever summer.). Even though his music is old, I love it. Summer to me is Bob! :)

Linda said...

Hahaha I have 5 of those songs on my iPod! California Gurls has been my ringtone for a few weeks =) Haven't heard the Kylie song, and I am over Gaga, and I like OMG but don't own it.

I am loving Jason Derulo's "In My Head" and Taio Cruz's "Break Your Heart" hehe =)

Jen said...

OMG is my fave right now!! That, and Forever Young! I could rock out to those two songs all day ;-)

Erika said...

Ah, so many of my favorites are featured here. I'm also loving "17" by Sky Ferreira - so amazing!! :)

Tasha said...

Great list! I'm also loving Tik Tok by Ke$ha, Need You Now by Lady Antebellum, Rude Boy by Rihanna, Imma Be by the Black Eyed Peas, and Bad Romance by Lady GaGa. Have you watched the video for Alejondro yet?! I saw it the other day on youtube and felt like I had just been watching p*rn! It's pretty crazy! LOL!

Tasha said...

Oops- Forgot one. Break Even by The Script is a great song too!
