The Sounds of Summer

Some of my favorite summertime tunes.

  1. Wild Night- Van Morrison. My favorite Morrison song.
  2. Crash into me- Dave Matthews Band: This song has such sentimental value. It reminds me of my dad and dancing around his room in the Hamptons when I was little.
  3. Girl- Beck: A sure fire way to see me dancing.
  4. Don't think twice, It's alright- Eastern Conference Champions: Has a bit of a Dylan sound. A great song.
  5. Summertime Clothes- Animal Collective: This song just gives off good vibes.
  6. Whatever you Like- Anya Marina: I just love this version (sorry T.I.) Plus, it was the soundtrack to one of the most memorable Gossip Girl scenes of the season.
  7. Glycerine- Bush: My friend Ali made me a CD with this song on it about 6 summers ago. It's one of my favorite and was recommended by one of my favorite girls :)
  8. American Girl- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: My mom introduced me to Tom Petty many many years ago. Needless to say, I love her even more for it.
  9. Quelqu'un m'a dit- Carla Bruni: Sure it's in French, but you don't have to understand the lyrics to fall in love with this song.
  10. Bad Moon Rising- CCR: This song doesn't even need explination.
  11. She Drives me Crazy- Fine Young Cannibals: A great one hit wonder.
  12. Time to Pretend- MGMT: This song just sounds like summer to me.
  13. Good Life- One Republic: It'll make you feel, well, good.
  14. Aint too proud to beg- The Temptations: A classic.
  15. Bette Davis Eyes- Kim Carnes: I absolutely loveee this song. For an updated sound, try the version by: Oliver North Boy Choir.
What a difficult task that was. I just love music way too much.
