Summer Songs


How do we define Summer Songs? They range from the top tunes of the summer, to upbeat songs that make you think of sunshine, to lazy day songs. In other words, anything that makes you feel good!

Let’s Go Surfing by The Drums

How can you resist a song that asks if you want to go surfing? Summer anthem, anyone?

Hey Lil Mama by Khalil (& Lil’ Twist)

It’s R&B by a teenager and we like it. From captain of his high school basketball team to top singer, he's simply a natural. ? We hope he's thanking his aunt, who overheard him singing at home and persuaded him to to post a YouTube video. ? The rest is history!

Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People

How do you know when you’ve made it? Well, if SXSW isn’t enough, then being on a Karaoke Essentials album might be. This band is just breaking into “Top 40,” but we have no doubt we'll be hearing a lot more from FTP. If you don't believe us, you might want to also listen to Helena Beat to make up your own mind.

Lights by Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding popped into the spotlight after playing at the Royal Wedding, although she had already won plenty of awards in Britain. We think she’ll be earning plenty of awards stateside too, but right now we just enjoy this easy-to-listen-to sweet sounding song.

Price Tag by Jessie J (feat B.o.B.)

Love the lyrics (really listen to them). It’s not about the money with this song, it’s all about making the world dance… and she does!!! (Take a listen to "Stand Up" too since the the whole “Who You Are” album is great.)
