“Drunk In Love” gloriously celebrates the rush that comes with being infatuated. Also, what’s better than Beyoncé dancing on a beach to get us in the mood for springtime?
- The Less I Know The Better (2015) – Tame Impala
“The Less I Know The Better” is not just another song about a break-up, it’s a disco song about a break-up. Sorry winter, we’re breaking up with you (for now).

We are keeping it old school with this one. “Be My Baby” is a classic that embodies that “butterflies in one’s stomach” feeling. Spring fling anyone?
- Boyfriend (2016) – Tegan and Sara
“Boyfriend” bursts into an infectious and lively chorus that practically asks for being sung out loud. Good mood mode on!

This funky tune is the ultimate summer jam. JT lets us know that he has that sunshine in his pocket and that good soul in his feet. Same here!

“1234” might be 10 years old but it still puts a big smile on our face. Also, we couldn’t imagine ourselves bouncing through a field of flowers to a better song.
- Special Affair (2015) – The Internet
In case you’re not familiar with American hip hop soul band The Internet, you have some catching up to do. Be prepared to fall in love with lead vocalist Syd’s voice.
