by at .  Updated at .

Summah, summah, summah time!! Time to sit back and unwind with 21 songs of summer right here!

1. Summertime

THE song of summer, Will Smith's "Summertime" has been oft-imitated, never duplicated.

2. Blurred Lines

Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines was quite the controversial tune, eventually leading to the demise of his marriage. (Sort of.) That doesn't mean we didn't sing along for most of 2013.

3. Summer Girls

LFO made a hit by singing about girls who wear Abercrombie & Fitch, the "Summer Girls."

4. Summertime Blues

Sure there's a cure for the "Summertime Blues," Alan Jackson! Listening to the songs on this list will take care of it!

5. Crazy In Love

Crazy in Love, a Beyonce-Jay Z collaboration, topped the charts in summer 2003.

6. Cruise

We've got our windows down and our radios up, playing "Cruise" by Florida-Georgia Line and Nelly.

7. Royals

"Royals" made Lorde splash onto the music scene like waves on a beach in summer of 2013.

8. Home

Phillip Phillips' "Home" became a song of summer when the US Olympic Team picked it up for the summer Olympics in 2012.

9. California Gurls

Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg's "California Gurls" topped the charts in summer 2010.

10. Boys In The Summer

It's totally true what Jessie James says. Boys DO look hotter in the summer.

11. Party in the U.S.A.

Ahhh, a walk down Miley Cyrus memory lane. We sort of miss fun tunes like "Party in the U.S.A."

12. Float On

We were all floating on down lazy rivers and in pools while listening to "Float On" by Modest Mouse.

13. Steal My Sunshine

One of Len's ONLY hits, "Steal My Sunshine" kept us nodding our heads while we cruised in the summer of 1999.

14. Call Me Maybe

Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" became a catchphrase uttered in bars across the world when it peaked during summer 2012.

15. In Summer

Okay, okay, so this one is SORT OF a joke, but IF "In Summer" started getting radio play this year we wouldn't be surprised.

16. Tearin' Up My Heart

No list of songs would be complete without at least one song from N*Sync. "Tearin' Up My Heart" is definitely a song of summer.

17. Gangnam Style

Talk about a hit that came out of NOWHERE! Korean sensation Psy's "Gangnam Style" racked up an insane number of views on YouTube and made him an international superstar.

18. Hot In Herre

Summer IS the hottest season, which is only one reason "Hot In Herre" by Nelly is on the songs of summer list.

19. Summer of 69

Everyone remembers the "Summer of 69," right? The year you got your first real six string?

20. Summertime Sadness

Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" is one of the more mellow songs of summer. We love its change of pace.

21. Genie In a Bottle

Debuting on June 22, 1999, "Genie In a Bottle" catapulted Christina Aguilera to the top of the charts AND became the song on everyone's radio.
