I wanted to do a top 5 list of my favorite summery songs, but it turns out, there’s too many. I’ve split it up into two – a list of my fave songs that have Summer in the title and a list of my fave songs that remind me of summer. You know what’s not on this list? Summer Nights from Grease. You know why? Because it’s lame. 

5. Summer Breeze – Seals and Crofts

Everytime I see Summer Peas at the grocery store, I sing this song in my head. It makes me feel fine.

4. Cruel Summer – Bananarama

Huge debate, do you prefer the original Bananarama version or Ace of Base’s cover of it?

3. Summer Love – Justin Timberlake

Who else thinks JT should stick to singing/dancing and forget about acting? Seriously, I need to see some music videos with dance moves.

2. Summertime – DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince

You love this song too, everyone does. Also, I needed to give a shout out to Philly!

1. Summertime – Sarah Vaughn (UFO remix)

This song sounds like a hot, sticky summer night to me. The best version I’ve heard.
