We might not be rockin' a blond hairdo this summer, like Wie-Wie '03, but we are starting the season right. Howard brings us some of his top summah songs so far, while Kulap's chart covers songs that she's not too enthusiastic about. Post a comment letting us know what YOUR favorite summer jams are so far.

Wow, that picture instantly made me think of Gleaming the Cube.

And I had successfully avoided knowing that annoying "band" was called "Carmen" until today; all I can say is "...white people".

Gotta say, there's no reason to fear boarding the Jepsen train too early when it's being driven by Justin Bieber and that song was released last September.
Before the song in Kulap's chart started playing, I totally thought it was going to be Carman, the Christian music guy, and I was taken aback. I slowly remembered seeing them on SNL once that was mentioned and it never ceases to amaze me how nearly all of SNL's musical guests are awful but made it on because they have some buzz I'm unaware of. But if it wasn't for Who Charted? and SNL, I guess I wouldn't even be as aware as I am. Old Person Be Hating.

Howard is great at critiquing stuff. I'm always like "yes! that's EXACTLY the problem with that!" when he criticizes something. The same way he can blast right to the heart of someone's personal demons.

That Nova Rockafeller track has been stuck in my head ever since Jensen played it on his podcast a couple of weeks ago. Definitely on my So Far Summah Songs chart.

i worked on parts of Canadian Idol in 2007, and saw Carly Jepsen from the top 22. i'm not saying this to name drop, but to mention that it was apparent to people very early on that there was a star quality to her and she was expected to go far. the fact the placed 3rd and didn't win may well have been a simple matter of the majority of voters being girls and voting for the male competitors she was up against (i don't know this to be true, just a possibility)

Thanks, a-holes. Now I have that Kitty Pryde song stuck in my head. Even worse, one of my coworkers caught me listening to it on Youtube.

In asking for Summah songs, I have very little for current ones, however, my dad made a mix tape in the mid-80s known as the Summertime mix that has lived on in my family ever since and was made into a cd at one point and then became a playlist. It will forever be a legend in my family. I consider the greatest accomplisment to be making a summah mix with no Beach Boys and a Beatles song that isn't Here Comes The Sun. Here's the tracklist.

Side A

1. The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon
2. Blondie - In The Sun
3. Katrina and the Waves - Sun Street
4. The Jaggerz - The Rapper
5. Billy Stewart - Summertime
6. Eddie Cochran - Summertime Blues
7. The Drifters - Under the Boardwalk
8. The Velvet Underground - Who Loves the Sun?
9. The Shangri-Las - Remember (Walkin' in the Sand)
10. Donovan - Sunshine Superman
11. The Undertones - Here Comes The Summer
12. The Lovin' Spoonful - Summer in the City
13. Sly & the Family Stone - Hot Fun in the Summertime
14. Alice Cooper - School's Out
15. Chuck Berry - School Days
16. The Rascals - Groovin'

Side B

1. Mungo Jerry - In the Summertime
2. Katrina & the Waves - Walking on Sunshine
3. The Ramones - Rockaway Beach
4. The Hollies - Carrie Anne
5. Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl
6. Creedence Clearwater Revival - Down on the Corner
7. J.J. Jackson - But it's Alright
8. Don DIxon - Southside Girl
9. The Go-Go's - We Got the Beat
10. The Ventures - Walk Don't Run
11. The Waitresses - I Know What Boys Like
12. 1910 Fruitgum Company - 1-2-3 Red Light
13. The Archies - Bang Shang A Lang
14. The Beatles - Back in the U.S.S.R.
15. XTC - Season Cycle

Some additional tracks that I love in Summah:
Jonathan Richman - That Summer Feeling
Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg - Nothin' But a G Thang
Dead Prez - Happiness
The Coup - Laugh/Love/Fuck
The Kinks - Waterloo Sunset
