Summer’s here! Let’s celebrate with summer themed music

Once again the beautiful, fun, exciting season of summer is here (at least in my region of the world). It’s always a wonderful feeling when you can get outside and feel the warmth of the season’s sun painting itself upon your skin. The long days, cool and refreshing drinks and the freedom to wear a little less material all make for a great time.

With all this in mind, I decided to post a list of a few songs that really bring out that summer vibe.

I hope you enjoy them and feel free to add your thoughts and comments on videos that say “summer” to you.

California Girls – Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg

Stacy’s Mom – Fountains of Wayne

Fallin For You – Colbie Caillat

Soak Up The Sun – Sheryl Crow

Pontoon – Little Big Town

In Too Deep – Sum 41

Some musical artists sing deeper lyrics than you might expect

Of course we all know that many of the great musical artists out there showcase some extremely poignant lyrical content in their work. But in many cases, profound lyrical and even poetic content can easily be missed or overlooked when it comes to more commercial or mainstream bands and artists.

Here are a few examples of some deep and intriguing lyrics as they appear in songs of some of today’s most notable musical acts:

“Crush Crush Crush” by Paramore

They taped over your mouth
Scribbled out the truth with their lies
You little spies

“If I Die Young” by The Band Perry

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a, bed of roses
Sink me in the river, at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

“What I Want” by Daughtry

What I want
And what I need
Has now become the same thing
You’ve been offering

“Firework” by Katy Perry

You don’t have to feel like a wasted space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
