Summer is all about fun, sun and lazing around right? And whats more summer-y than sugary pop songs? I’m not really a pop/techno/dance music kinda girl but it’s summer; I’m free, the livin’ is easy and so what the hell.

CALL ME MAYBE- CARLY RAE JEPSEN

\
Have you been living under a rock?! Who hasn’t heard this song? It’s perfect for summer romance and makes me think of sunshine and rainbows and kisses. Gimme a few minutes while I listen to it again for the thousandth time. ( I try to stop but this song is just so addictive! It sucks you in!)

GLAD YOU CAME- THE WANTED

\

Listening to this song just reminds me of lazy parties and meeting new people and it makes me wanna have a vacation like the one in the video. Summery goodness 🙂

CHASING THE SUN- THE WANTED

While I’m no sun-chaser, this song is perfect for late night summer parties. The chorus is so catchy!

PAYPHONE- MAROON5

\

I love this song , although I think I’ve been listening to it way too often and now it’s stuck on a loop in my head. Oh well, the lyrics are good and while it’s not especially summery, it’s good.

ONE MORE NIGHT- MAROON5

I loved this song the minute I heard the opening! I think I just like Adam Levine’s voice. Anyway, this song reminds me of stuff and so I listen to it repeatedly.It’s like “Call Me Maybe” in the sense that it makes me want to listen to it on repeat all the time!

WE ARE YOUNG- FUN ft JANELLE MONÁE

We are young goddammit and we can set the world on fire! 😀

TITANIUM- DAVID GUETTA ft SIA

Sia’s voice is heavenly and the lyrics are pretty good. This song also has that ‘nothing to lose’ feel that’s very characteristic of summer.

SHAKE IT OUT- FLORENCE + THE MACHINE

Florence is just so beautiful and artistic. This song reminds me to shake of my problems for a while and just live. And isn’t that the essence of summer? Apart from the heat of course.

BURN IT DOWN- LINKIN PARK

I’ve been a LP fan for years and their previous album kinda left me cold and so I was glad to hear this song!

SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW- GOTYE ft KIMBRA

THIS SONG! This song is not going away for this year at least. It captures the feeling of kinda liking someone even if they don’t mean the same thing to you anymore and how much it hurts when people you know start acting like strangers. I love the emotion in their voices, especially the Kimbra part

So there you have it, 10 songs I’ve been listening to over and over. Have a favorite that isn’t on this list? Let me know, I’m always looking for new music!
