DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince , "Summertime" - Years before Will Smith was acting in summer blockbusters, he was crafting one of the best songs to ever capture the barbecue-scented nostalgia and flirtatiousness of summer. Trivia fact: the sample that Jazzy Jeff used on the beat is from Kool and the Gang's "Summer Madness." The Beach Boys "All Summer Long" - This classic from their 1964 album of the same name conjures up a place where the sun is always shining and you never have to leave the beach.
Justin Timberlake "Summer Love" - It wouldn't matter if you were riding a bicycle with a flat tire, the beat on "Summer Love" will have you feeling like you're with J.T. "ridin' in the drop top with the top down." Bryan Adams "Summer of 69" - Play it near the end of a summer party: everyone knows the lyrics, everyone sings along (loudly), and nobody cares at all that Bryan Adams is corny. Animal Collective, "Summertime Clothes" - If you're not familiar with the indie group's freak-folk sound, this ode to hot nights, sweaty dancing and stripped clothes isn't a bad place to start. Kid Rock, "All Summer Long" - "Serious" music fans tend to dismiss Kid Rock's southern backwoods meets hip hop schtick, but if there's ever a time to embrace a guilty pleasure it's the summer, and this mashup of Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" definitely qualifies.
