Feel Good Summer Songs

Yesterday I heard a great song that I thought is a great song for the summer even though the song has been out since November of last year.  The song is “Hello”  by Martin Solveg and Dragonette.  Here is the video:

This is the type of song you just want to listen to in your car with the windows rolled down.  This got me to thinking about other songs that are just like this song, perfect for a drive in your car on a summer’s day.

The first song is the newest of all of the songs, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” by Coldplay.

Once again, Coldplay has a hit on their hands.  You can hear shades of” “Strawberry Swing” from Coldplay’s last album Viva La Vida”.

The next song I think puts people in a summertime mood, “Say Hey (I Love You)” by Michael Franti and Spearhead.  Nothing says summer music like a good reggae style tune.

Another tune that fits this category is M.I.A.’s  “Paper Planes”

The song that is absolutely associated with the summer is, of course, “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

Who doesn’t think of this song when it comes to summer?  This is the quintessential summer song.
