The Girls of Summer

Hello sweet sweet summertime! It feels great to be back in SoCal and I'm really excited for my job interview on Tuesday (fingers crossed times a million I get it...it gets a post of its own if I do!)

Summertime calls for good tunes to put on your iPod shuffle and as I flick through mine, I see summer songs from high school, my junior college, and university flip past me. When I listen to them, I remember something different each time, be it that car ride to see Pineapple Express, blowing fireworks off in the backyard and getting the neighbors to yell at you (oops...), riding the bus to take summer classes in order to graduate from college early, and sticky hot summer days outside with a melting Popsicle.

Three of my favorite ladies have seriously excellent summer songs out. I recommend each and every one!



Kylie Minogue- All the Lovers (WaWa & MMB Edit)

Kylie has long been one of my favorites to listen to during the summer (though every time is good Kylie time in my opinion). When I listen to this song, it feels like a song you'd hear on a starry night when you meet the perfect someone for the first time.






Sophie Ellis-Bextor- Bittersweet

I'm hopelessly in love with Sophie's voice and have been listening to her avidly for years. I'm loving the '80s throwback feel on this song. Fun fact: I listen to '80s music WAAY too much. I love the synthesizers and the attitude from that decade.





Katy Perry- California Gurls

This is definitely the song of the summer. I'd be remiss for not including it. It will make you want to drive a Jeep and live on the beach underneath the palm trees for sure.



Love to you all,
Heather

Good luck on the interview. I love cranking yo the itunes just before I have to do something that makes me nervous and it gives me such a boost of energy. Gwen Stefani's "Whatchoo Waiting For" is one of my faves. And she is yummy too. - G
