Summer Soundtrack

I know I've told you this before, but I'm a very seasonal person.  This includes food, movies, activities and obviously music.  There's something about summer that mandates you listen to great country music.  Fall is for new pop music that keeps me awake as I travel for work, winter is for classic Christmas songs and romantic Michael Buble tunes, spring is for club beats that pump you up to party when the weather's warm and summer is for wistful songs about loving life, going barefoot on the beach, and kissing goodnight on the front porch.  I am 100% that this Gloriana hit would have been my very favorite song when I was 15 years old.

And here's a few more of my favorite summertime songs . . .

Because I write a blog dedicated to chick flicks it should come as no surprise that I'm a big fan of popular music.  I'm not one to complain that a band I used to love has sold out by appearing on MTV and promoting their music on the radio.  In fact, most songs I love about 6 months after they've received  some airplay.  Anyone heard that new song, Call Me Maybe?

Just kidding.  But because I usually never hear about good music until the band has been mainstream for at least a year I have to tell you that I practically discovered Ellie Goulding.  You know Ellie Goulding whose song Lights is the number 6 song on ITunes downloads right now? 

Well when I heard Ms. Goulding performed at the royal wedding I obviously needed to know everything about her.  Her songs are some of the best workout tunes out there and I made everyone I know listen to "Lights" on repeat in May of 2011.  Now that it's getting all sorts of radio play over a year later I'm like "ugh, what a sell out."  Okay not really, but you know Kate's probably like
