These just might be the songs of Summer 2014...

Summer 2014 is just around the corner y'all and you know what that means.... you probably don't have to listen to Blurred Lines ever again, but something equally catchy (and likely will drive you to gouge your ears out by August,) is about to hit your airwaves.  I'd like to consider myself a fan of music in general, though I tend to lean towards singer/songwriters and folk artists, (and there are SO MANY great new folk releases coming out, which I'll talk about in a later post,) but there's just something undeniable about a summer song that leads you to roll down the windows, turn up the radio, and sing along to.  Check out a few of my favorite poppy jams of this summer and start practicing your best booty dance...

* Gotta Get Away - The Black Keys
While I'm loving their first single Fever, the real song that had me turning the knob up and car dancing was the album's final song.  It's infectious and everything I love about The Black Keys.

* Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake
What happens when you combine Michael Jackson AND Justin Timberlake? Magic. That's what.  I love the throwback disco fever that's infiltrating pop music lately.

 * Problem - Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea
 I've got a secret addiction to certain bubblegum pop music... this song might be my not so guilty pleasure.

 * Sing - Ed Sheeran
I'm generally a little wishy washy about Ed Sheeran, but this song with it's whole JT vibe.... it's pretty great.

 * Fancy - Iggy Azalea
Easily my favorite thus far, it's a good bet that if you see a yellow jeep with the windows down and a lady embarrassingly dancing in the drivers seat, it's me and this song. Also anytime there is a Clueless reference I AM IN.

 * Turn Down For What - DJ Snake & Lil Jon
I've mentioned the dancing peen video before, but it's awesome. And that beat is sick.

 * Do It Again - Royksopp & Robyn
I have been waiting for two years for a new Robyn song. I love her. LOVE HER!

 * Of the Night - Bastille
It's probably because this was once a long, long, time ago Rhythm of the Night was a favorite dance song of mine... but I love this fun Bastille remix.

* Double Bubble Trouble - MIA
This song will immediately have you just GROOVING in your chair.

* Chandelier - Sia I've raved about this song a lot in the past few weeks for good reason, this song just gets me so pumped up. It's amazing.


  1. Most of these were already on my list of jams.

    Which means, the rest have now been added.:)

  2. No list of summer songs would be complete without "Summertime is Great" by Three Beat Slide. This quirky group has written the greatest summer anthem of all time! If you haven't heard it, get ready to play it loud and let the Summer in!
