No season inspires songwriters like summer, when the sun beats down on a tar-papered roof and the warm, sandy beach rolls in as you walk home from the pool. This year, Weezer stepped out of their nerd-rock comfort zone to create a cheery tune with a pop hook. It’s called Feels Like Summer and it will appear on their new album that is slated to be released this summer.
Despite its random AF production and unfocused lyrical content, this is a pretty decent song that should be heard by anyone. Thankfully, it also breaks from the sound typically associated with Weezer so they can keep evolving without being pigeonholed in the same old cliches.
One of the best examples of a summer tune that will make you want to have a good time is Katrina and the Waves’ 1985 radio hit. It’s not really about summer, but it evokes the energy of a sunny day in a very positive way.
Another effervescent summer tune that will have you wanting to have a good time is Katrina Redding’s “Lazy Day.” It’s not really about summer, but a lazy day in a very positive way.
This is a great song to listen to on a warm summer day as it will make you want to have a good night out. It’s not the most popular song in the world, but it can definitely get you into the mood to have a good time.
