Summer Mixtape 2012
Okay, so we don’t exactly use tapes anymore, but there’s an art to creating the perfect playlist for the summer. The key to a mind-blowing mixtape is blending classic summer songs with your favorite new hits and throwing in a little something that everyone can sing along to – whether it’s your dad or your BFF. Check out the 2012 Kidzworld Summer Mixtape to get some ideas for your playlist!
Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles
A classic summer hit about being grateful for the sun’s relaxing rays.
We Are Young – Fun. Featuring Janelle Monae
If this song doesn’t get everyone singing along with you, we don’t know what will!
The Motto - Drake Featuring Lil’ Wayne
YOLO! You Only Live Once according to Drake and Lil’ Wayne, so make the most of your summer!
Summertime – Will Smith
If you have any old school hip hop buffs to appease, this song is designed to make you chill out and groove.
California Girls – Katy Perry
Every girl is a “California Girls” in the summer, so bust out those Daisy Dukes (that’s slang for cut-off shorts) and dance along.
Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO
“Party Rock Anthem” is also a summer anthem.
Love You Like A Love Song – Selena Gomez
It may not be about summer, but just like Selena in the video,“Love You Like A Love Song” will make you want to hop in your BF's convertible or serenade your sweetheart on the beach.
The Locomotion – Kylie Minogue
Old-fashioned and up-tempo, The Locomotion will get you moving.
One Direction – What Makes You Beautiful
The video says it all for this one! Get to the beach already!
Summertime Blues – Ed Cochran
Not everything can go your way, let Ed Cochran commiserate with you about the summertime blues.

If your friends have their musical roots in straight-up rock then don’t leave this one off the playlist.
Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen
I think we can all agree that “Call Me Maybe” will continue to dominate the charts this summer, so don’t leave it off your playlist!
