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

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
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.
School is out, the sun is shinin'
I think I wanna make him mine
Nothin' like the feelin'
That you get inside
Look him in the eyes
5. Sun is Shining, Bob Marley
