14 Summer Songs… To Get You Into The Summer Mood

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: June 20, 2011 | Categories: Entertainment, Favorites, Holidays and Observances, Lists, Music

Summer time conjurs up images of sandy beaches, pools, hot steamy days, tans, and vacations, to name a few. Summer also gets me into the mood to turn the music up loud and dance. This is something we do a lot in our home, but especially during the summer. While I was thinking of some "summer" tunes to add to my playlist, I challenged myself to see how many songs with a 'summer' theme I could think of… without using Google.

These are the songs I thought of…

Thunder Island – by Jay Ferguson (1978)

Summer Nights – from the Grease soundtrack. Sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. (1978)



Summer Breeze – by Seals and Crofts (1972)

School's Out – by Alice Cooper (1972)

Heat Wave – by Martha and the Vandellas (1963)

Summer of '69 – by Bryan Adams (1984)

Groovin' – by The Young Rascals (1967)

Under The Boardwalk – by The Drifters (1964)

California Girls – by the Beach Boys (1965)

California Gurls – by Katy Perry (2010)

All I Wanna Do – by Sheryl Crow (1994)

Cruel Summer – by Bananarma (1983)

Vacation – by the Go-Go's (1982)

The Boys of Summer – by Don Henley (1984)

I could use some help adding to this list, so please add any songs you can think of about "summer", in the comments! I hope you enjoy the longest day of the year… Summer Solstice!
