Wait, how is this different from my last top 5? Those were songs that have the word Summer in them. These are songs that remind me of summer, whether they bring back fond memories, inspire me to fire up the grill or get out my dancing shoes. I tried to not go with the obvious choices (The Beach Boys? Too easy…), but an honorable mention goes to Katy Perry for California Gurls. It summery pop at it’s sing-along finest.

5. This is how we do it – Montell Jordan
