Top 5 Tuesday erm Wednesday: Summer Jams!

When M and I went on the deep sea fishing trip from hell expedition, I made a little mixed cd (doesn't mixed tape just sound so much better? sigh...) with some of my fave summer songs on it.

Now, this mixture had old summer favorites and current summer faves. These are songs that just make me happy. They probably have absolutely nothing to do with summer, but I just like them.

For today's Top 5 Tuesday post, I'm listing my 5 favorite "new" (as in, less than one year since it was released) summer jams.

Jam with me...

1. Cruise (Remix) Featuring Nelly - Florida Georgia Line
I know, I know a COUNTRY song is on my list. What's gotten into me??!! This one is actually sort of summer-themed. And, I mean, I just love Nelly. He reminds me of the early 2000s. Love him.

2. Blurred Lines Featuring T.I and Pharrell - Robin Thicke
Robin Thicke used to not be able to sing. He's still not that great. But this song is. The lyrics are kinda vague and vulgar at the same time and the unrated music video is too much. But if I can just listen to this makes me want to dance!

3. Let the Groove Get In - Justin Timberlake
It is a little repetitive...but this song is definitely good for working out, doing chores or maybe in a boat? IDK.

4. My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) - FallOut Boy
I like FallOut Boy. I feel like they get a bad rap because the lead singer tends to be pitchy in his songs. However, this song is really catchy and driving.

5. Come & Get It - Selena Gomez
Is she one of the Disney Channel alums? Is she the one that dates the Biebs or the one that does coke. I get them all confused. Anywho, I like this song. It has a really cool asian/world/arabic world beat type thing going for it in the song breaks and then a total pop rock chorus. It's a cool song...even if the words are a bit repetitive.

Honorable Mention:
Cups - Anna Kendrick
I love this song! But the only reason it didn't make it to my list is that I wish they wouldn't have changed the song up so much than what was in the movie. That whole scene was cool. Make the song a little simpler and I'm all for it. This version is still good though.

What are some of your favorite summer songs?


Join my statement necklace linky party on July 30!

Editors Note: I literally went almost all morning thinking today was Tuesday. Excuse my temporary forgetfulness. We can still talk about fun songs on a Wednesday, right?

  1. I am kind of embarrassed to admit, but I love that Selena Gomez song. She's the one that dated the Beibs.
