We’re done with our decade by decade highlight of songs you should hear and I’m struggling. I was toying with a throwback post about boy bands today, but I decided not. Then, when I was returning from lunch in sweltering heat and humidity, I thought, “What about throwback summer songs!?!?!?!” So that’s what we are going to do. We are starting to enter the time in the Northeast when it is almost miserable to go outside unless you have a pool.
Here are five throwback summer songs that might cool you down, heat you up and above all provide a great soundtrack to the summer.
1. Sly & the Family Stone- Hot Fun in the Summertime
2. Bill Withers- Lovely Day
3. Three Dog Night- Joy to the World
4. Eddy Grant- Electric Avenue
5. Traffic- The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys
What are some summer throwbacks you enjoy?
