It’s time to break out the BBQs, whack on the sun tan lotion and charge up the speakers because good weather puts everyone in a much better mood.

Here are 14 summer tunes that are guaranteed to put you in a good mood. Fair warning, these just might be some of the most basic songs around.

1. Steal My Sunshine – Len

This song is peak summer. Put this on and transport yourself to the beach. Or just put on a pair of flip flops and stick your earphones in.

2. Bailamos – Enrique Iglesias

No summer playlist would be complete without a bit of Enrique and we are going old school. This song is 20 years old this year too. Increíble.

3. Lush Life – Zara Larsson

The perfect summer bop when you’re walking to Tesco to get some cans for a sunny gaff.

4. Starships – Nicki Minaj

The first lyrics are literally ‘Let’s go to the beach’. It’s ideal.

5. California Gurls – Katy Perry

While it’s 17 years since the sad death of Mic Christopher, Heyday continues to be a great tune and something very easy going to stick on in the warm weather.

An odd choice some might say but this song is just a very easy going, happy little tune which is great for strolling through a sunny day.

12. Live Forever – Oasis

Is this the most basic song in the world? Possibly. Is it still a good tune? Absolutely. Be grateful it’s not ‘Wonderwall’.

13. Love System – Le Galaxie

Warm weather means warm feelings and what better song for warm feelings than Love System? Guaranteed fuzzy feelings.

14. Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap

Yes 500 Days of Summer was a questionable movie but this song just screams SUMMER.
