Happy Music Monday! So, everyone who's anyone is outside soaking up some rays. We're gonna do the same thing in here. This week, our theme is Sunshine Songs! Maybe they're about sunshine, maybe they sound good in the sunshine. Scott doesn't care. Do your thang, people.

The Ramones - California Sun

 

If ever there was a song for a convertible of the modern era, THIS is that song. Fill up the tank and zip down to the beach. And maybe swing by the offices and grab me, too? I'll buy soda and chips for the drive!

Unless you plan to take Scott up on his offer, see you after the jump!

The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon

 

As far as I'm concerned, this is the sound of lying in a sunny meadow. DON'T TRY TO CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE.

Bobby Hebb - Sunny

 

This lovely, happy song was written after Bobby Hebb saw his brother and President Kennedy both killed within a 48 hour period. That's just amazing. It's such a happy song to come from that kind of disaster!

Stevie Wonder - You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

 

A song about the sun needs to feel as bright and shiny as the sun itself. Stevie Wonder kinda set the bar high for others. Maybe this is why songwriters got so dark. He did it too well!

Roy Ayers - Everyone Loves The Sunshine

 

Smooth and charming. The musical version of a sunbeam.

Get out there and enjoy the sunshine first. THEN maybe come back and add some sunny songs of your own. And let us also just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. See you next week for the start of JULY WOOOOOOO GO JULYYYY

Since the topic was *Sunshine* Songs, my mind immediately thought of

Sunshine of your Love - Cream
Sunshine Superman - Donovan
Walking on Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves

I didn't even consider better (IMHO) songs that were "sun songs" but didn't mention "sunshine" specifically (e.g. the Beatles "Here Comes the Sun")

Sunshine - Atmosphere

Obviously the best song about sunshine.

Damn it, I did a search but was fooled by the sky diving image and didn't explore further.

The point goes to you.
