Thinking of hitting the road lately to escape the summer heat? It sure is a lovely thought to take a refreshing swim in the deep turquoise water of the ocean, go skinny dipping and sunbathing as you take a sip out of your ice-cold pina colada while bonding with your girlfriends. Now before taking those keys, why not stack your playlist with the best summer songs? You wouldn’t want to go on a road trip for hours without great music so here’s a list of summer songs you might want to play as you drive those long and winding roads.

1. California Gurls, Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg


Sure you’re not from California but who cares as this song simply sums up your carefree summer affair? The song is dubbed to be a certified summer anthem with its catchy lyrics and vibrant-pop feel. The song is mainly catered to the teenage population but who wouldn’t love hearing and dancing to its beat on a hot summer day? 

California gurls

We’re unforgettable

 Daisy dukes, bikinis on top

 Sun-kissed skin, so hot

We’ll melt your popsicle

2. Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and The Waves


This rather old feel-good pick-me-upper song is just what you need on a terribly hot summer day. With its cute 80’s pop feel, Walking On Sunshine will undeniably set the highest mood of fun and gaiety among your girlfriends as it blares on your car stereo. 

I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that it's true

And I don't want to spend my whole life just a-waiting for you

Now, I don't want you back for the weekend, not back for a day, no, no, no

I said, baby, I just want you back, and I want you to stay

3. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Cyndi Lauper


This song is such a classic that not having it on your summer playlist may be considered a crime. Just by thinking of Cindy Lauper with her quirky red hair and carefree attitude as she sings this song will quickly pop up a dash of color to your boring summer days. Play this song as you drive and you’ll never go wrong as your girls will definitely love to sing alongside the legendary Cyndi Lauper.

That's all they really want 

Some fun

When the working day is done

Girls - they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun

4. Summertime Guys, Nikki Cleary


Summer won’t be complete without a budding blissful summer romance with a summertime guy. This song encapsulates all there is to it- eyeing a piping hot guy as he takes a dive at the beach, bumping into him at the movies then the next thing you know is seeing yourself going to a beach party with him. Ah, that thrilling butterfly effect is doing its magic again on your giddy stomach. 

Summertime guys

School is out, the sun is shinin'

Summertime guys

I think I wanna make him mine

Nothin' like the feelin' 

That you get inside

Look him in the eyes

Summertime guys

Summertime guys

5. Sun is Shining, Bob Marley


Your summer playlist won’t be called a playlist without some reggae music from the reggae king Bob Marley. Recreate a laidback atmosphere even while you’re inside the car with some relaxing yet catchy reggae songs and you’ll surely want to hit the beach in no time. 

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet

Make you want to move your dancing feet

To the rescue, here I am

Want you to know ya, where I stand
