As we close out July with only one full month left this summer, it’s the perfect time to think about what music is sticking with us in 2015. Of course our very own Demi Lovato’s megahit “Cool For Summer” is a serious contender for the hottest track of THIS summer. (Lovatics can vote now for best fandom at the Teen Choice Awards!) We polled the office to see what else everyone is rocking out to during these hottest months of the year. Check it out and let us know your favorite song of summer in the comments!
Janet Jackson feat. J. Cole – “No Sleeep”
I am digging “No Sleeep” (yes 3 e’s) – It has a cool, summer groove going which would be perfect for a day at the pool. Enjoy.
Sheppard – “Geronimo”
I have been playing Geronimo by Sheppard on repeat this summer! The upbeat song helps me get through my summer workouts with a smile on my face. No easy task!
Rupert Holmes – “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)”
Because I love piña coladas and getting caught in the rain.
Ice Cube – “Today Was a Good Day”
It’s an old song but I know all the lyrics so that makes me feel pretty cool. It’s such an LA song. Every LA native know this song. I mean every day that you don’t have to use your AK is a good day, right?
Eagles – “Peaceful Easy Feeling”
This is one of those classic songs that just sounds like summer. Whether you’re taking a road trip, laying on the beach or jetting off to another country, “Peaceful Easy Feeling” (along with other Eagles hits) will get you in the right mood for time well spent in the summer sun.
Ellie Goulding – “Burn”
All though it was released earlier in the year it is a song that I continued to listen to throughout the summer. Ellie’s voice is very relaxing and the song has an uplifting vibe to it. I definitely recommend it to all!
Meghan Trainor feat. John Legend – “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”
Beautiful message and it features the beautiful John Legend!
Elle King – “Ex’s & Oh’s”
Because summer is the season for dating, and this song is all about the crazy ups and downs you experience in the dating world.
Katy Perry – “Roar”
I don’t really have a choice. My daughter loves this song so it repeats 15-20 times per day in my car. I’ve kind of forgotten what other music sounds like.
Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk!”
When you hear this every day in the office next to yours, you know it’s the song of the summer (or at least someone’s summer). Great beat, great video and (sigh) Bruno Mars.
Jamie XX feat. Young Thug & Popcaan – “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”
It’s probably the most fun-filled track on The XX co-founder’s insanely fantastic solo album. As this plays it’s easy to imagine yourself with a drink in hand laughing under the sun with your closest friends.
