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
