Tis the Season: The Best Summer Songs

As summer approaches, you may notice things tend to change. People quit wearing pants and begin wearing shorts, wire screens replace glass windows, the aroma of chimney smoke is taken over by the smell of smoke from a barbeque, candy canes are replaced by ears of corn, and the lawn furniture stuffed in your basement and hauled upstairs to the deck. Not immune to the alter that summer brings is your music selection. As your Christmas Carols grow dusty in the attic, you might find that your option in music also changes. Performing away with Jim Brickman's latest hits, you opt for some thing a little much more punchy, some thing that fits in with fun in the sun. The following is our list of top 5 summer songs of all time.

Boys of Summer: Though Don Henley's 1984 hit tends to make our choice of very best summer songs, it could also make the list of very best stalker songs (I'm driving by your house, though I know that you're not home). Restraining order aside, this is arguably Henley's best known song with out his fine feathered friends. Not only does it remind us of, well, summer days, but it is also a song that reminds us of lost love, some thing most of us can identify with.

I am the Summertime: This tune may not be well known, nor may the group - Bachelor Number One -who sings it, but there is something attractive about "I am the Summertime," something that tends to make it nicely worth a listen. A little bit pop and a little bit reggae, "I am the Summertime" was featured on the American Pie soundtrack. A song with lyrics that actually introduce you to summer, this is one melody you'll want to meet.

Playing With the Boys: The female species will likely equate this song with the volleyball scene from Top Gun (volleyball: 20 dollars, swim trunks: eight dollars, Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer with out shirts: priceless). Yet, even the male species can appreciate Kenny Loggin's summertime hit. "Playing with the Boys" reminds us of youth, something that summer can bring out in anybody. It also reminds us that life is a beach....and then Goose dies.

Margaritaville: If hot chocolate belongs to the winter time, then summer is all about margaritas. A restaurant deck or an apartment balcony, frozen or on the rocks, with buddies or by your self rocking in the corner, margaritas are the ideal summer drink This tends to make "Margaritaville" the perfect summer song. Even although Jimmy Buffet is "wasted away," hopefully you will not find yourself in a comparable situation: just be sure to consume a lot of bread.

Summertime: Before Will Smith saved the world from aliens in Independence Day, he drove around in a convertible with DJ Jazzy Jeff singing about a topic atypical of rap: the climate. "Summertime" by Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff is one of the best summer time songs of all time. It is simple, it is simple, and it reeks of a sense of lightheartedness, just like summertime should be.
