Top 10 In the Summertime…

A few weeks ago we put together a “Hot Picks” list of 10 of our Music Supervisors’ favorite songs of summer 2011. While those are our personal new faves, we also love programming some “classic” summertime songs for our clients.

Just like the traditional Christmas songs that become the ubiquitous sound of the holiday season, there are songs for all seasons. As Music Supervisors we are often tasked to pick songs that sound like summer or evoke the feeling of sunshine. These songs become our summer standards.

The following 10 songs are some of our most often selected, iconic summer songs. What are the classic summer tunes that evoke that sunshine feeling for you?

–          August Day Song- Bebel Gilberto
–          Groovin’ – Rascals
–          Holiday- Vampire Weekend
–          Hot Fun In The Summertime- Sly & The Family Stone
–          In The Summertime – Mungo Jerry
–          Seven Sunny Days in June- Jamiroquai
–          Summer in the City- Lovin’ Spoonful
–          Summertime- The Sundays
–          Sunshine – The Beach Boys
–          The Tide is High – Blondie

Songs of Summer 2011

Seems like summer always has its own soundtrack that helps weave the fabric of stories that only summer can pump out. The barbecue that ended with a visit from the fire department. The epic road trip. Water skiing for the first (and perhaps last) time. There’s usually a song or two associated with those summertime events that trigger memories of them long after they’ve happened.

That brings us to summer 2011. Our team of Music Supervisors picked ten of our favorite “Hot Picks” for your 2011 summertime playlist. These songs make a great soundtrack for your sunshine day-dreaming, adventuring and storytelling.

What’s in your heavy rotation this summer?
