What is your "summer jam"?

Asked by elijah (8642points) June 5th, 2009 from iPhone

There’s always a bunch of catchy pop songs that come out during the summer. No matter how hard you try you cant stop it from getting into your head, and at some point you give in and admit you love it. Wherever you are, whenever you hear it, you catch yourself singing and dancing. What song is your summer jam this year? What are some of your all time favorite summer jams?

This summer I’m loving Boom Boom Pow- Black Eyed Peas and Cross My Heart- Marianas Trench.
All time classics are Santeria-Sublime and Summertime- Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff

Don’t Lie – Black Eyed Peas. Listening to this song in the sunshine on my mp3 player makes me want to bounce down the road :)

Pretty much anything by Bob Marley, mon. Namely, this, though.

Connie Francis – “V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N” and “In the Summertime” by Mungo Jerry.

Can’t forget “Margaritaville” by Jimmy Buffett.

Summer in the city – Lovin’ Spoonful

elijah's avatar

Those are all classics and personal favorites, what about songs that came out for this summer? I’m looking for the super catchy, trendy radio hits that we hate to admit we like.

Shake it – Metro Station. The horror. The absolute horror.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Oh! OK. Let me listen to Z100 today and see if there’s anything that catches my ear.

elijah's avatar

@saraaaaaa LOL yeah I loved that one last year. It’s so annoyingly awesome!

Hmmm, I don’t listen to pop music, but I heard I Know You Want Me by Pitbull on my best friend’s MySpace page the other day and I have to admit, I’ve been singing it to myself a little ;)

elijah's avatar

@essieness I haven’t heard that one yet. I will check it out. I have an 11 year old daughter so I get to listen to pop music a lot. I really don’t mind it sometimes, it’s fun.

Strawberry. Sometimes apricot preserves.

calvinette's avatar

“Rehab” and “Don’t Stop Believin’,” by the cast of Glee.

jfos's avatar

I agree. Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me” lacks any bit of good lyrics, but it’s a good dance song.

eponymoushipster's avatar

the kanye/pb&j mash up of Young Folks was my summer jam in like 2007.

essieness's avatar

@jfos It has a catchy hook, which is basically all it needs to be a good dance song/summer jam.

jfos's avatar

You know it’s sad but true.

aprilsimnel's avatar

OK, I’m cheating. I’m listening to BBC Radio1’s Friday Night Mashup. ‘Cause you know, I’m done wif my A-levels and I’m on the M4 on my way to the club! w000000t!

Anyhoo, the best song I’ve heard thus far is the new Dizzee Rascal song Butterfly. I know he’s not popular in America, but this song is really catchy!

Okay, it’s a year old, but I only started hearing it recently. Adele – Right as Rain
All time summer jam song? Three Dog Night’s Out in the Country

Kayak8's avatar

Don Henley’s Boys of Summer

sjmc1989's avatar

Stone in Love- Journey curse me if you want but I love em’

And absolutely love listening to American Girl- Tom Petty during summer time. I love having all my window’s down, and singing it as loudly as possible. I swear he wrote that song about me!

filmfann's avatar

@sjmc1989 if you like Journey, you’re already cursed.

saraaaaaa's avatar

@sjmc1989 There is nothing wrong with a good bit of Journey and I also love American Girl ^^

I suspect you are a bit of a Scrubs fan?

vampir_kat's avatar

Anything 70s/80s glam rock sounding… I’m all for some Steel Panther and Hot Leg right now. Wheeee! :)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Anything by Stevie Ray Vaughan reminds me of summer :)

@eponymoushipster I’ll second the motion – hell yeah!!! Summertime – Will Smith

And for reasons known only to me, Usher’s “There Goes My Baby” – man, I can just feel the wind in my hair on the back of a bike while we’re whipping down A1A in Daytona. Good times

laurenkem's avatar

Sexy and I know it by LMFAO is a good one for this year.
