17. "Sight of the Sun" - Fun

A chill musical lazy river with occasional upbeat rapids

16. "Fancy" - Iggy Azalea

It's practically already the song of the summer. Just embrace it. Dance. Practice rapping in an Australian accent and move on.

15. "Destination" - Nickel Creek

After far too long of a hiatus, this bluegrass trio proves they still have it. This is how I like my country music. Please and thank you.

14. "Let Me In" - Grouplove

I can picture the beach in my head, a perfect hipster beach with ironic 80's beach towels and exclusively IPA craft beer.


13. "Chandelier" - Sia

The more you listen the more you want to dance. Preferably on the beach. Or in a mansion with a structurally sound chandelier.

12. "Adrenalina" - Wisin, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin

A song can't be a guilty pleasure if you don't know what they are saying. Right? Right?

11. "Be Okay" - Oh Honey

If a red popsicle on hot day had a theme song, this would be it.

10. "The Heart" - Needtobreathe

You can practically smell the burgers on the grill for your 4th of July Party.

9. "Sky Full of Stars" - Coldplay

This is the best stargazing song since "Yellow" if the field you were stargazing in happen to have an EDM DJ playing

8. "D-D-Dance" - The Royal Concept

See the Title of Song

7. "Scare Away the Dark" - Passenger

This song feels Passenger is giving some great advice over some lemonade on the front porch.

6. "Love Never Felt So Good" - Michael Jackson ft. Justin Timberlake

The past and present Kings of Pop come together, and any post-humorous weirdness is overcome by the sheer fun of the song.


5. "Black River" - Wolf Gang

Black River is the beginning of your summer road trip.

The other two songs are a bonus.

4. "I Wanna Get Better" - Bleachers

Side project of fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, Mr. Lena Dunham, Bleachers is everything you want in an indie pop band. Catchy choruses to belt out, weirdly awesome electronic influences, and a ridiculous high bridge to work on your falsetto.

3. "Bleachers" - Shadow

See Above. Indie pop gold.

2. "Home" - Johnnyswim

The perfect indie-folk song to be the soundtrack to your backyard bonfire.
