    Source(s): Some of these songs may make you go "what?" but my logic is, if it is explicitly talking about summer or the content of the lyrics reminds me of heat, or if it has a reggae/light-hearted bounce to it, OR if it's a "motion" song, one that talks about moving it all around or telling you to DANCE YOU FOOL DANCE, then I think of Summer
