What are your favorite summer / beach songs?

Asked by chad (694points) June 17th, 2008

If you have more than one, post away! I’m looking for things like the Beach Boys, Sublime, Bob Marley, Phonex, ect.

(Also, sorry if this question has been asked in a similar way; I searched for ‘summer songs’ and ‘beach music’ without any results.)

There’s this great compilation album called “Pure Brazil: The Girls of Ipanema” featuring ‘60s and ‘70s Brazilian female pop vocalists like Gal Costa and Wanda Sa. It’s fun cocktail/beach/BBQ/zone-out stuff.

@GS: “Veronica?” I would’ve thought “The Other Side of Summer” from the same album was a natural! :)

Also, I’ll add Bebel Gilberto’s “Tanto Tempo” – it gets hot where I live, so cool sounds help in a weird way. Those and Margaritas.

And Caipirinhas.

It’s gotta be over-the-top-cheesy-pop or catchy-rock, so for daytime, I’ll go with:
Bob Sinclair – Love Generation
Alphabeat – Fascination
Bon Jovi – 99 in the Shade
Bon Jovi – Summertime
Guns’n’Roses – Paradise City

Evening/sunset time:
Peter Frampton – Baby I love your way (the Big Mountain cover ain’t bad either)

I so need a summer holiday!!

ftv summer essentials – get that cd, is more like chill/trance kind of music, you can try, also, carry me away by chris lake, the classic in search of sunrise cd collections by dj tiesto, this music is more like european cut – mediterranean road trip/camparis/oysters/martinis – the other songs are more like beer and pizza crowd, I like to chill :P
