The following songs are bound to bring you into beach party mode after only a few tunes. Find out about the ten best summer songs ever.
10. Macarena – Los Del Rio
One of the best beach songs of all time. I don`t understand a word, but soooo catchy!
“Dale a tu cuerpo alegria Macarena
Que tu cuerpo es pa’ darle alegria y cosa buena
Dale a tu cuerpo alegria, Macarena
9. Shalala Lala – Vengaboys
The Vengaboys delivered quite a few summer songs in the 90s, always pretty much the same style. But despite the very easy lyrics, this one is their best.
“My heart goes shalala lala
Shalala in the morning
Shalala in the sunshine
Shalala in the evening
Shalala lala just for you
8. All summer long – Kid Rock
The summer version of “Sweet home Alabama”, very smooth melody.
“While we were trying different things
And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long”
7. Samba de Janeiro – Bellini
Again, I don`t understand anything. But you can practically feel the Carnival the Rio in Brazil, therefore has to be considered among the best summer songs.

6. Hips don`t lie – Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean
The Colombian superstar makes your hips swirl around with this amazing collaboration with Wyclef Jean.
“And I’m on tonight you know my hips don’t lie
And I’m starting to feel it’s right
All the attraction, the tension
Don’t you see baby, this is perfection”
5. Lambada – Kaoma
Just watch the famous video and you`ll understand why this is one of the best beach songs ever…
“Chorando estara ao lembrar de um amor
Que um dia não soube cuidar
Chorando estara ao lembrar de um amor
Que um dia não soube cuidar”
4. Coco Jamboo – Mr- President
The wording is not exactly Shakespeare, but it makes you feel like lying partying on a Caribbean beach. And that`s what it`s all about.
“Put me up, put me down
Put my feedback on the ground
Put me up, take my heart
And make me happy”
3. Bailando – Loona
Bailando was a smash hit in 1999. But it wasn`t even the most successful of the best summer songs that year. That was actually the next one…
Amigos, adiós, adiós, el silencio loco
Amigos, adiós, adiós, el silencio loco”
2. Mambo Nr. 5 – Lou Bega
One of the biggest selling singles of all time. Number one status in more than 20 countries and 4.13 million singles sold world-wide in 1999 alone!!!
“A little bit of Monica in my life
A little bit of Erica by my side
A little bit of Rita’s all I need
A little bit of Tina’s what I see
A little bit of Sandra in the sun
A little bit of Mary all night long
A little bit of Jessica here I am
A little bit of you makes me your man
Mambo number 5!”
1. Sweat (A La La La Long) – Inner Circle
The definition of summer party and the deserved winner of the ranking of best beach songs!
“Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can’t sweat no more
And if you cry out, I’m gonna push it some more
Girl, I want to make you sweat, sweat till you can’t sweat no more
And if you cry out, I’m gonna push it, push it, push it some more
A la la la la long, a la la la la long long li long long long”
