Top Four

Top Four 30: Summer Songs 😎


  oh we have we have to start the show

  because I can't think about I can't

  think about this list anymore this was

  the hardest list I think I've had to

  make me do totally the heart I still I'm

  still not sure I still don't know what's

  happening right now yeah like this I

  have a feeling we're gonna have a lot of

  regrets after this for things that we

  didn't pick or things we did we ranked

  too high or not high enough I've been

  moving my top four around all day and

  yesterday and last week I just I can't

  be around this list anymore

  and I I don't think I could pick I think

  this is gonna be an insane like I have

  eight number ones the hardest thing for

  me about this list too has also been not

  talking to you about it as I've been

  compiling oh my god I know I just keep

  wanting to talk about it I keep to have

  conversations about how I'm coming about

  this list and what I'm doing and and I

  can't talk to you

  alright well okay I can finally talk to

  you can we talk about okay our list ah

  for top for July we are doing top for

  summer songs mm-hmm summer songs and we

  are okay the rules are this is the the

  most loose definition I think we've ever

  had for a category not true we had to

  have had looser definitions come on okay


  top four summer songs they are songs

  about summer they are hits of the summer

  like songs that came out during the

  summer or that we're popular for a

  summer season or songs that make you

  think of summer so pretty much yeah

  anything so it could be anything yeah

  any song basically if you say it makes

  you think of summer that could be a top

  for summer songs so we've given

  ourselves quite a painful open-ended

  task and we feel like we're like must

  consume all music but I have some

  standouts I feel like the ones that I

  ended up coming to at the top of my list

  I made a playlist I made a 20 song

  playlist and I feel like at least the

  ones at the top are the ones that I feel

  the most strongly about I have 17 oh my

  it was so hard to narrow it down yeah

  there's some I was rich I like I said I

  keep just flip flop in the

  all over the place and I don't feel like

  I'm really ranking them as so much as

  I'm curating a playlist where there are

  some that I want to start the playlist

  out with summer that are in the middle

  and some I want to end the playlist with

  how are we gonna start this since we

  have such a massive list I think we

  should start with our honorable mentions

  oh because I even though I had to call

  those down quite a bit I mean what I

  have left here is a severely trimmed

  list I'm seriously going to have one to

  like 10 or 15 honorable mentions all

  right well my first honorable mention is

  the entire album basically of sr-71s now

  you see inside wow I don't have any of

  that on my list so there we go yeah hard

  for you because you listen to albums yes

  it was singles this is very I mean there

  are some line that are singled and this

  one if I had to pick one song that is

  the best it would be last man on the



  why is this a summer song and not in any

  time of the year song because one of the

  most fun concerts ever went to was in

  the summertime it was them touring this

  album in this little tiny club in

  Columbus and all they did was just

  basically play the album straight

  through because they didn't have any

  songs yet match box 20 song matchbox 20

  concert like that right this is actually

  a good and then they just ended up

  playing like come on Eileen and it was

  really weird yeah so sr-71 last man on

  the moon is my honorable mention number

  one because yeah I just have good

  memories of it it with the summer

  concert that it was really really nice

  yeah see at that that's where I was

  having trouble with my list was I had to

  stop being like okay this is not your

  favorite songs list

  this is songs that make you think about

  the summer yeah so yeah it's hard to get

  ahold of that when you start down a

  rabbit hole of music and see I also had

  tail of the Sun by stroke nine oh that's

  a good one I don't have that's a song

  that's kind of I mean it's not really

  about the summer but I feel at first I

  could just let me feel it

  in my guts I'm gonna wait for the whole

  intro because the first line here is 20

  minutes away

  it's right here

  that's it oh yeah

  I need add this is my playlist it's

  really good yeah and then at that whole

  album stroke 9 is so good I I have

  listened to that album so many times

  me too I remember listening to that as

  we were driving away from being together

  at school we were like getting separated

  for the summer and I was in the backseat

  as my parents are driving me home and

  yep you were left behind and it was like

  I was a song also like when I'm when

  it's like March and it's still snowing

  outside and I listen to that song it's

  the tail of the Sun because the summer

  will never come like it yeah it's like I

  wish for summer and I listen to this

  song and that's a weird summer in it so

  BAM exactly so it totally counts oh I

  got it I can't have it be my last song

  because my last song is something

  special moving up my list can we share

  these playlists with people probably

  well anyway we started thinking about

  this topic specifically because we found

  this amazing radio station thanks to our

  friend tani and Jeremy it's called

  summer hits of the 90s and my Pandora on

  Pandora so if I have an echo device the

  way you asked for the station is hey

  name a thing play somewhere hits of the

  90s on Pandora no I'm gonna do it

  because everyone needs to hear Alexa

  play summer hits of the 90s on Pandora

  you're welcome everybody you're welcome

  now pause this podcast listen to the

  station for a little while and then come


  it's a surprisingly good station it's so

  good they also have a summer hits of the

  2000s which isn't as good it's awful

  when you would you not as good I think

  when you do those like decade based

  music stations you come to realize quite

  how bad the 2000s were in rock like in

  in other areas maybe they did okay but

  like the decade 2000 2010 like it did

  really like it is such a different sound

  from the 90s and it's all like creed and

  sadness sweet and sadness about worst no

  it's like good stuff like Mele and all

  that business it's so good whatever

  which is by the way the last song of my

  playlist which I guess would be my



  in here I dare you not to dance to that

  you're an out dancing Here I am dancing

  it's it's fine

  good gracious Oh God come on good

  gracious axes bodacious how could you

  not smile like this oh you're the worst


  honorable mention Milly hot in here love

  it speaking of being hot in here I think

  you have to have sunburn bi-fuel even

  though it is really not about summer but

  it's called sunburn so I just think of

  summer with this so another aa dimension

  for me goes to sunburn by fuel this is

  another good one

  I know jaws of your pics but see they're

  a little too sad for me to feel really

  summery yeah

  well also like fastball I have out of my

  head this is another great song it

  doesn't really have any to do this

  summer as far as I know it's just a good

  song that kind of sounds like it just

  sounds like summer to me mm-hmm

  you know it does I have no basis for

  that it this just sounds like summer

  yeah I see that


  I mean drunk tribal you know summer

  thing yeah anyway I have them talking

  about driving another honourable mention

  I have um one headlight by The


  I mean come on people pick it up do The

  Wallflowers know how to pick it up

  course it's called da honor Oh engine

  honor women okay coming up here wait for

  it hey when does it get good you don't

  like The Wallflowers they're fine they

  see to me like they it's one of those

  bands like matchbox 20 where like the

  entire 90s you just heard these bands

  constantly on the radio and so I never

  needed to buy their albums because I

  heard them too much already

  oh and so and they're fine like you know

  I I don't like hate their songs I won't

  turn them off if they're on the radio or

  on a streaming playlist or anything but

  I would never think about them yeah see

  it to me okay I had a really hard time

  trying not to just be favorite songs of

  the 90s for my summer pics because when

  I was the happiest in the summer or when

  I should say when summer felt like

  summer because you were in school and

  then you had a summer vacation so and

  then when you were late you were late

  enough in your teenage years that you

  were able to kind of go do what you

  wanted during the summer that's when I

  really really felt like it was

  summertime and so a lot of these songs

  were on when I was becoming more of an

  independent teenager and those are the

  songs that I kind of latched onto for my

  list I mean right now I I have um I

  gotta give an honorable mention to

  Sheryl Crow I mean come on who else

  writes about somewhere but Sheryl Crow

  right and all my she's just don't start

  right away they just they have long

  intros so I'm really sorry

  I just ignore that part what is it no

  it's wait just wait for it it's like 50s

  I should have marked it area you know

  this song her friend the Communists I

  mean what I don't think I know this song

  are you ain't come on oh I guess those

  meetings in his RV can't afford his gas

  so she's stuck here watching TV yeah I

  don't I don't know about this here we go

  here we go this part okay I know this

  part yeah


  where's she gonna say the damn name in

  the song here we go okay there we go and

  we also have another Sheryl Crow

  honorable mention oh yeah this one of

  course yeah this is I mean this is no

  joke wrote a song ain't no Country Club

  neither come on it's either she doesn't

  matters what I say and it has one of

  those like little um stick rubbing

  instruments the guiro is that what it's

  called listen the the grooved fish that

  you're a Busta crows yeah yeah these are

  oh yeah the groovy stick fish yeah we

  give it to the kids in Van who didn't

  really have any rhythm in the drum

  section but they had to play something

  so we give them food in those to me the

  the groovy stick fish says summer boys

  you can give it to really drunk people

  in the summer and they won't mess up the

  song too badly good I never yeah now

  that you say the grit now I hear it

  obviously but I never I never like

  realized that I was listening to it like

  if you would have asked me whether any

  90s hits that included a prominent we're

  apart I would have said of course not

  but here here it is don't stop it well

  she's gonna go in the court why the

  court late in these songs there we go

  that's all you need yeah so those are

  some honorable mentions for me I also

  threw in there I want to say I'm all

  about this playlist' I threw in some

  like surf music breaks which I felt like

  I needed a little bit of summer yeah

  well like I have like Beach Boys you

  know like it's kind of you kind of need

  some Beach Boys do you do you need Beach

  Boys I mean obviously like they're like

  a whole band devoted to the summertime

  like you can and not a small band either

  so I feel like you have to include some

  big boys and also you you can't ignore

  of course

  come on so I have I have a comment about

  this genre this surf rock genre by the

  way here's another one ya know these two

  the best part about surf rock is that it

  actually is a genre if you if you have

  like a streaming service or a station or

  something you can place your play surf

  rock radio on Pandora and the best thing

  about it is that you only need to listen

  to it for about 15 minutes and you've

  heard the whole genre like all surf rock

  songs sound the same they either sound

  like wipeouts or like James Bond themes

  like that's it they are actually James

  Bond well cos James one came out in the

  60s when it was like really popular like

  this style this was a 60s style of music

  and so like James Bond like using this

  style as their like for like the main

  theme and and some of the accessory

  themes for all those early movies like

  that was not an accident that was the

  music of the time that was really cool

  and a little bit subversive maybe well

  none of these songs are really that long


  they're all like two minutes long and

  they're all so harkening back to the 60s

  surf movie like the the surf beach

  movies yeah there was that huge hit in

  the genre because like girls and bikinis

  and surfers like that was a huge huge

  thing for young teenagers at the time

  that they loved those California surfer

  movies so a lot of the music came from

  that too but yeah so that's some

  honorable mentions I'm afraid to mention

  some of my other honorable mentions

  because I think they might be in your

  list well actually so I'm ready to start

  the top for ranking itself now do you

  actually have for you however each of my

  four has honorable mentions within it

  like it's like a buddy system yeah this

  one that it needs to have this one next

  to it or they have like a little cluster

  that you know there yeah three

  musketeers they just can't give them up

  together exactly that's a line or two

  okay cool alright well do our top four

  and friends fix that sounds good

  okay all right should I go first you go

  last or you wanna go first I have a

  Stone Temple Pilots song as an honorable

  mention sure

  oh yeah this is again this is like these

  don't know pilots song oh yeah

  what is this a love song yeah yeah yeah

  they're great band this is great song

  also um this is a this is a big

  honorable mention for me it really

  didn't make the list but I got to put it

  in there oh come on

  open your ears no listen to it no I wash

  over you mark oh no no no no it's

  summertime to me

  make it stop or I'm playing fish oh God

  just I have a fish honorable mention

  good oh I love this song for the

  summertime it feels so good it feels

  like a little palate cleanser in between

  some of the other more vocally songs cuz

  it's just instrumental you need yes I

  like this one a lot album version let's

  not get crazy let's get crazy this is

  called first tube and it's off the album

  farmhouse or many live shows since then

  Shh leave the live ones alone it's just

  too much it's too much alright so my

  number four pick my only if we now on

  the official list but I have some

  honorable mention so my number four pick

  I kind of wanted to represent the

  category the general category of

  carefree songs about partying I have

  nine in my top four so the the carefree

  songs about partying genre I feel like

  represents a lot of summer songs and one

  my uber mentions is actually probably

  the most recent song in this list

  blurred lines are Robin Thicke this is

  not my number four but this is our

  mention so I feel like this is a great

  representation of the carefree song

  about partying you like it's catchy

  there's boobs in this video yes

  somewhere eventually but you gotta sit

  through all this beer so so like that I

  feel like we have to stop stop recording

  like - well that's I had to play that

  song off YouTube because I don't like it

  enough to pay a dollar to buy it and put

  it on this playlist so I have it oh well

  I still don't like I don't have to rebuy

  it so so that I think that's a good good

  sample of d carefree song about partying

  however I think the one the if you had

  to pick one carefree song about partying

  there's only one option

  oh no my number four is Chumbawamba

  puppy yeah no question really

  embarrassingly high on my life I mean

  come on

  what other song is that summertime II

  like come on and there there is no

  better song that is carefree about

  partying like this is the song about

  that this makes me feel so good in

  summertime so when I think about

  summertime music I really think about

  like windows down sunshine you know when

  you're putting your hand out the window

  and you're going whoosh whoosh whoosh

  with the air current like and that's

  like summertime music or just like you

  want to sit down and have a cold drink

  and like kind of dance goofy a little

  bit and hang out with your friends oh

  it's just


  all right what is your number four all

  right my number four

  grouping I've really been okay since you

  said that as yours I might move it down

  my list it was its third on my playlist

  right now I might move it down because

  now it already got mentioned by you but

  I have okay so hard I can't believe how

  I feel like this is defining me as a

  person when really I could these all of

  these nine songs could pretty much be

  anywhere they're just these are the

  songs that I want to hear in the

  summertime yeah my most newest recent

  addition which was actually came out in

  2016 is cake by the ocean anyone's gonna

  start cursing soon so I might as well

  shut it off but there's also a non

  explicit version so if you do want to

  listen to it around your kids

  it's just really good I started

  listening to it a lot this summer and it

  just it says cake by the ocean so it

  just makes me smile cuz I like cake and

  I like oceans and it feels summery and

  it feels kind of chill out but party at

  the same time so I really like that and

  okay if it needs to have a friend which

  of course it does because I have nine in

  my top four oh I just feel like this one

  might I feel like it should be higher on

  the list but I don't know it just goes

  with cake by the ocean a little bit

  better yeah this is a good pick oh yes

  freezer town right crazy town butterfly


  he's got she's got him sprung with her

  tongue ring did you know that

  yikes anyway the lyrics to that song are

  so hilarious I you just just have to

  you're my brother fly sugar baby all

  here crap anyway alright so so that was

  number four officially or was that one

  of the group of four my number 4 is is

  okay I might move this up to my number

  before skate by the Everson no number

  four all right I'm gonna tell you I have

  I have three for my number four that I'm

  moving down the list oh my god okay no

  it's fine it's fine this is this is we

  make our own rules this is our show okay

  should I say my okay yeah so I said my

  number three I'm moving things around

  hold on I'm gonna move this up this one

  up and cake by the ocean you can move up

  to okay alright here we go the Holly

  songs they start like weirdos oh your

  song start like weirdos my song start

  awesome oh this okay yeah okay this is

  this is a three-way tie for number three

  and this is lenden deal my sunshine it

  just sounds so summery yeah I'll give

  you that I mean in the songs about


  alright number two so you're number four

  between numbers three and four you have

  six songs I can do what I want yeah okay

  this song's not enough to stand on its

  own but in a little playlist this is

  amazing yeah yeah yeah it's a good mixer

  it's like a little spice

  it's like oregano mmm no piece of celery

  maybe okay celery is really important

  yeah it's it's it rounds out the the

  meal it does it sounds summery it has a

  little bit of that like California

  drive-in music I guess it

  there was a horn yeah it has a long

  drawn-out story about something I have

  some horns and drawn-out stories coming

  later how bizarre yeah okay and my

  number three number four number three

  okay that was um actually how bizarre

  bye again all these capital letter bands

  om see um okay anyway my number three

  number four is the new radicals you get

  what you give okay do you see how

  they're a little cluster they're kind of

  like a cluster of happy summary music

  well I don't really get this one as

  being a summer song it's it's a fine

  song summary it's also five minutes long

  which is why it had to be with others

  because I can't have this as one of my

  top picks for five minutes yeah I'm

  already done yeah it goes well with

  others as a group it's like that's like

  the big potato of the dish that's fine

  for a few but I know I got my god this

  is huge but the rest are you know the

  little toppings got some bacon you know

  a little cheese and then you have

  yourself a nice little meal so that's my

  little meal for number four and I oh and

  also number three well number three was

  the butterfly okay okay now you do yours

  my number three actually this is my this

  is one of the only one on my list my

  number three it has no accessory songs

  to it similar to your criteria of

  telling a story I feel like the entire


  of The Hold Steady qualifies for summer

  music I forgot about that but no I would

  not consider them summer means I mean

  like I didn't forget about them I mean

  how could you forget about that voice

  yeah it's just yelling a story at you

  but like so this song this is a

  chill-out tent but the I can listen to

  music anytime to me this could be fall

  this could be winter it doesn't

  transport me to the land of summertime

  but I think this has it the summery

  first of all it is like you know about

  partying and being carefree and telling

  long stories and is about you know a hot

  concert and people doing drugs and

  passing out but you know it's it's just

  like this sounds like summer to me and I

  feel like so much of the whole city

  sounds like that but that is one of my

  favorite songs of theirs I thought you

  just said that didn't have any

  accessories but yet it has their entire

  like what's that called

  I want to ography yes thank you I'm like

  okay yeah

  their entire disagreable to my number

  two and one so more than all of hold

  steady I feel like that's one coherent

  entry so your playlist literally has

  just like a wall of hold steady the only

  thing coherent about the whole study but

  yes it has one coherent okay all right

  what is should I do my number two and

  you do your number two how we doing this

  okay I if you want to finish then I got

  a we got to do that do it that way like

  do you want to go last I think I might

  want to go last and move my comedy

  option to my number one oh you should

  alright so yeah those are pretty common

  options so my number two this for this

  category I kind of wanted to represent

  there was a summer of I believe it was

  97 and this was the summer that is it

  tub-thumping again no well that was 97

  that was tougher thing I like I like to

  have to give it its own entire entry


  when you give to people

  seven this was

  summer that my friends and I started

  trading mp3s and this was this was a

  prominent summer in the early mp3 era

  the summer of piracy and and so it

  because this was like it was really when

  it started to explode 97 and most people

  didn't even have broadband yet so like

  my first mp3 piracy took place on zip

  disks and I didn't even have a zip drive

  I would borrow the drive and the disk

  from my friends and bring it home and

  plug it into my printer port and copy

  files off that way Wow onto a computer

  that would that only had a four hundred

  megabyte hard drive and so there was

  only enough space left after all my

  other stuff for me to hold like three or

  four songs on there life was really hard

  then and the computer was not fast

  enough to play the mp3 at full quality I

  had I could only play it at half quality

  it sounded awful did you ever think

  about just listening to a really good

  radio station like the rest I did that

  too but so so this was the TV some idea

  of the of the era here

  this was bullet with butterfly wings

  that was when my first mp3 hit me a

  picture tub-thumping was up there

  this was also this was the I I think a

  critic manager also this was the brief

  scoff A's yes I wrote down so much Scott

  music yeah reading by the Mighty Mighty

  Bosstones yes everything exactly like it

  this really was the sound of summer 97

  yes this is summer this is me and my

  friend Kathy like sneaking out of her

  house through her basement window to

  walk around town and do nothing I'm real

  big fish too yes yeah also I have no

  doubts tragic kingdom' as like a huge

  album that was a big in the summer yeah

  and someday I suppose more when Mighty

  Bosstones it's just such a like that was

  like the summer of sky and it was

  intertwined so much with the early mp3

  trading so that was a big one for me but

  the one song that I chose to represent

  this in my actual list is what was

  actually my first mp3

  the butthole surfers of course this

  doesn't say summer to me but I

  understand it and it's really not a

  great song but I liked it a lot it's so

  weird it's incredibly strange it's

  really dark for summer though yeah like

  crack den summer it yeah this doesn't

  make me feel uplifted or happy or

  sunshine makes me feel like I just

  because for me it reminds me of summer

  because that was your crazy qualifier

  for this list yeah it's there cause it

  was it represented so well for me that

  summer of 97 mp3 trading okay okay I

  almost I um - you had me getting all

  revved up here with all of the sky and

  the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and it says

  I have all that kind of on my scribble

  list widget I will I took a picture of

  so we could put that up there yeah it

  was like the summer of Scott it felt so

  great this makes me feel like let me

  dance goofy on the beach yeah you go to

  butthole surfers that's that's where you

  took this train to the butthole all

  right someday I suppose but yeah yeah

  yeah all right think with the Bosto

  alright what is your number two my

  number two we just put that on all of

  Arts our numbers 1 2 3 & 4 are all top

  flipping something it's really good

  stuff moving should really be number one

  on both of our lists probably what we're

  saying here alright this song let me see

  if you can guess this it's where they're

  driving and then they break down and

  then they don't know which way they're

  going fastball the way damn right let's

  just start off awkward again song thank

  you you picked these songs that have

  these long interests

  I love it song it is such a long

  drawn-out story of nonsense here we go

  yeah that's like a minute in yeah it

  still has it's still just getting stir


  just say the name of the song you make

  fun of fish for having long interest

  okay this is a long interest story just

  like on and on like when what song is

  this I don't even know it's just I

  always know Shh where were they going

  without ever knowing the way all right


  all right

  stop it they said the word summer and

  you talked over it it's a song about

  summer they said the word summer Wow I

  love this song it makes me think of

  summertime I never know the title of it

  and I'm always saying to Marco Marco

  that song we're driving and they break

  down they don't know where they're going

  they don't know where they're going and

  the song is of the way so it's pretty

  great my fastball yeah I really like

  that song and to accompany it just

  between all the entries yes 15 copies

  you can't get you can't not listen to it

  over and over

  oh wow even the album cover freaks me

  out that baby with choppers what's your

  number - wait did you say I said number

  two it was the the mp3 summer which was

  butthole surfers pepper Oh slash slash

  slash summer of scoffs last someday I

  suppose it's like it has the entire

  disaggregate you have all of ska pretty

  much with a little butthole surfer

  candle on top yes

  so that's right now that's G that's sure

  that's your list cake that you have

  going on here alright my number one okay

  this is the Weiser category oh I have

  some Weezer's in my honorable men

  that I didn't mention because I knew you

  would have it yeah so I I have a whole

  cat is also there the whole category of

  Weezer right Olive Weezer yeah and so

  for me Weezer like I've liked Weezer

  year-round and I was basically most of

  my discovery of new Weezer songs happen

  during the summer times I discovered

  Pinkerton during a summer after it come

  out like I you know just a pre-internet

  so like you know I didn't get it at the

  time and it wasn't really on the radio

  so I discovered that in the summer and

  listened to listen to the crap out of

  Pinkerton in the summertime some of

  their albums have also been released in

  the summer so that that is often when I

  hear those songs first they did a couple

  of promos they they did the summer songs

  of 2000 which is kind of interesting

  this was it was a small group of

  releases they did between Pinkerton and

  what was going to become the green album

  and they threw most of them away and

  these songs just have been lost yet

  forever but there are some pretty decent

  ones what they're all pretty decent

  except for this one though I'm playing

  right now this is called preacher's son

  this is where my favorite melody wait so

  is this on your list or not it's a

  friend of the list it's an ear it's it's

  part of the we dramatically to the meet

  get to the meat of the weave there and

  then I also all of maladroit the entire

  maladroit album was released in the

  summertime and this was it part of a

  major summer of music listening for me

  the summer of 2002 I I had an internship

  I was doing a lot of driving it was like

  on the other side of town doing a lot of

  driving and this was before I listen to

  podcasts because this was before podcast

  really existed so I did lots of music

  listening that summer mostly Jimmy Eat

  World and Good Charlotte and that was

  those were big in 2002 but also all of


  this is our song we listened to this

  album for the first time together in the

  car driving to your house yeah you know

  we met it doesn't do I know yeah exactly

  so I know this is like our song in the

  summertime yeah this came out in the

  summer of 2002 yeah Weezer's mallard

  albums misses keep fishing and there and

  there's so many good singer Dean I'm

  like transported back into your car yeah


  alright and then also also what was big

  in our early relationship was the green

  album itself it was not a summer album

  but if you're looking at Weezer summer

  songs how do you not include out in the

  Sun and that yeah it on the Sun is just

  a great song it is probably the best

  song on the green album the green album

  honestly didn't have a lot of standouts

  oh my god it's called Island in the Sun

  and talks about holiday of course yes

  summer song however this was not my

  number one song either my number one

  song is the other best song that Weezer

  have written about summer surf wax

  America oh I just started playing hash

  pipe it's really good this this is the

  closest that we sir has ever come to

  writing a Beach Boys song I think no

  this is like these summer song by Weezer

  and it's from the Blue Album which I

  love and it's it's just an awesome song

  in the middle of an awesome album that

  came out of an awesome time so number

  one for me Weezer surf wax America this

  is so good

  you're absolutely right yep nice prep is

  fine it's a fun song it's not a great

  song exactly that's why it's in my

  honorable mentions it's right above my

  Sheryl Crow so good yeah but it's

  underneath this the entire category of

  surf rock which has about six songs well

  I'm fine with them or wipeouts oh right

  now there's a lot of music okay stop


  terrible reported its from 1962 wait why

  are we back here my fault you brought us

  back I'm sorry alright alright so are

  you ready for my number my two number

  ones of course I'm gonna give you the

  entire Weezer categories my number one

  yeah I know you have quite the layer

  cake going on you have like a trifle of

  music I have never had this many notes

  for an episode of the show well I

  started getting carried away I have like

  stuff on that I'm written down like

  entire albums I have Eve sick stuff I

  have just I have I've Rusted Root all

  over the bike I don't know I have Sugar

  Ray like things all over that I don't I

  didn't make it with that I have songs

  from Total Annihilation because I played

  so much of the Total Annihilation like I

  played so many games of this during the

  summer time during I am party to my

  friends I'm gonna go over there

  stop gosh are you done do I need to play

  more Nelly do I need to play Nelly again


  together they're pretty good we are

  musical geniuses just alright and I even

  I was tempted to even include alright

  what's your number one all right I have

  two number ones of course I'm saving one

  okay this is what I think is my number

  one are you ready I'm ready

  really there's something about this

  weird Smash Mouth song walking on the

  Sun it just makes me feel like I wanna

  like weird surf dance on the beach and

  hang out it just feels like the perfect

  background music for summertime so I

  have a question if you're gonna pick

  Smash Mouth how do you not pick all-star

  because this is walking on the Sun I

  mean this is fine but like all stars a

  way better song I don't know it just

  feels really good in summary I moved it

  up and down the list like all over the

  place and I was trying to put other

  things you know ahead of it like you

  know but you know it wasn't it wasn't I

  don't know there was just something that

  was stopping me and just kept it kept on

  floating to the top anyway and here's my

  other number-one song I don't know if

  anyone even really knows this song but

  it is it just kind of makes me laugh

  every single time that I listen to it

  and I can only listen to it in the

  summer so that's why no no no it's not

  that one

  it guessed wrong No okay here we go the

  hell is this


  in the summer they rhyme the words

  Hornet and sonnets in a song wow it's so

  bad it's good it's it's pretty bad yeah

  no they really do they they rhyme the

  word Hornet and sonnet they also mention

  home alone at the movie naturally which

  is huge and it there's a lyric that says

  I steal your honey like I stole your

  bike horrible Wow

  it's a terrible song the name of the

  band is called LFO which stands for

  light funky ones and light is spelt with

  a Y the way to fly eat a funky one it

  came out in 1999 and I remember

  listening to the radio and I was

  listening to K Rock and one of the like

  the goofy DJ people or sidekicks of the

  DJs because they're trying to be like

  Howard Stern Show ish and on their

  morning show he said like oh he was at

  the grocery store and he met these guys

  that had this song and this is like

  gonna be the song of the summer and he

  just knew it and so then they played it

  and everyone laughed and guess what it

  kind of became the song of the summer so

  it was so ridiculously perfect Wow I'm

  so sorry this is my number one but I

  just I get where else does it go where

  else could it go where else down the

  list no it could only go up


  that is something it's so everything god

  I'm sorry had this really should be the

  number one yeah I think this is the real

  winner tonight even though it wasn't on

  our list it was our number once yeah

  tub-thumping wins the night oh gosh this

  is so hard I feel like my pics we're

  defining my soul


  yeah you get to do that after everything

  like it just works every time
