Top 10 Summer Songs

Courtesy of MGM

Summer's here and what better way to relax than kickin' back with some sweet jams? If you're not feeling the summer spirit yet, we've compiled ten songs that are just perfect for relaxing on the beach. So get ready to make a mix disc as we run down the best tunes guaranteed to get you in a summer state of mind!


1 - Len - Steal My Sunshine

Okay, so the lyrics don't make a whole lot of sense (what the heck does "my tribal lunar speak" mean, anyway?), but this is one of those songs you've got to crank up on a hot and sticky day!


2 -Nelly - Hot in Herre

Though it's probably not something you want your parents to hear, it's impossible to think of summer without thinking of this smokin' Nelly tune.


3 - DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince - Summertime

Back before he was a big time movie star, Will Smith was kickin' out jams with his partner DJ Jazzy Jeff. Summertime, with its chorus featuring the lyrics "time to sit back and unwind," invites listeners to do exactly that, making it an ideal summer song!


4 - Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get it Started

Whether it's a girls-only sleepover, a pool party with all your closest pals or a day at the [kwlink]waterparks[/kwlink], Let's Get it Started by the Black Eyed Peas is the perfect song to get your body movin' this summer.


5 - The Beach Boys - Kokomo

We couldn't do a list of the best summer songs of all time without mentioning the guys who practically invented them! Made famous in the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail, it's almost impossible to listen to Kokomo without thinking about relaxing on the beach with a cool drink.


6 - Good Charlotte - Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous

Rock out this summer with a little Good Charlotte. Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous is a great track to get you in the mood before you head out to that summer concert you've been waiting for all year!


7 - Sisqo - Thong Song

When he's not making movies like Get Over It, Sisqo can be counted on to crank out super catchy songs like this one.


8 -LFO - Summer Girls

With references to everything from Cherry Coke to Macaulay Culkin, this ditty from the hotties in LFO is ideal for a campfire sing-along.


9 - John Travolta and Olivia Newton John - Summer Lovin'

It wouldn't be summer without this catchy tune from the Grease soundtrack. Grab your girlfriend or boyfriend, and pretend you're Sandy and Danny!


10 - Lil' Flip ft. Lea - Sunshine

If you're headed to the beach with your buds, what better tune to listen to than Sunshine by Lil' FLip? This is definitely the 2004 theme song for soaking up the rays.

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
