  • 25 More Essential Summer Songs

       April 21, 2009

    One of our most popular old posts is this list of 25 Essential Summer Songs. Since the list is almost four years old now, however, it seems like a good time to update it with some new songs and old favorites. (Confession - I love, love, love making lists like this. It makes me search through my own songs, YouTube and other random lists and is a great way to discover and rediscover great music.).

    So what makes an "essential" summer song? Generally speaking, it should be upbeat, not too serious and sound great with the windows down. With that in mind, here we go!

    Update: Some our new 2010 list of essential summer songs.

    I would add

    "You Gotta Fight for Your Right to Party" Beastie Boys
    A great summer song.

    "Big Brown Eyes, by Old 97's: Especially done live, this song is a hot 'n' sweaty rocker. What makes it a great summer song are the fun singalong parts."

    He did an acoustic set last night in Austin and played this. It was outstanding. You could also easily sub "Barrier Reef."

    Good list.

    I saw him in February, but he didn't play Big Brown Eyes :-(

    Really? Did he just do his solo stuff? I've never seen the full band not play that one.  
    #  April 24th, 2009 5:08 PM      kris
    It was just him and he did both his stuff and Old 97's stuff. When he did "The One" it was cute because he actually looked around the stage to where Murray, Ken & Phillip would have been when he sang their names.

    Here's my front row picture of Rhett from their show in Oshkosh, WI (opening up for that asshat Todd Rundgren) last summer:

    One hit wonders you may have heard of, that I just can't match up with "rainy February day":

    Hooters---And We Danced
    John Steward (no, not THAT chooch)---Gold (you know the words: When the lights go down in my California town, people are in for the evening.... Stevie Nicks sang backup).

    Almost anything by the Monkees.

    Good list, though.
