The summer of 2009 can be summed up, musically, by three words: Black Eyed Peas. We've heard Boom Boom Pow umpteen million times and now we're getting bombarded by I Gotta Feeling. There hasn't been an assault on the senses like this since 1996 when Marcarena could be heard coming from every club, backyard party and car stereo. Enough already!

Take a break from BEP and check out these fine summer tracks:

Paradiso Girls feat. Lil Jon and Eve - Patron Tequila

Glorified casual sex, binge drinking, purging and blatant product placement = awesome! This should have been blasting out of everyone's car window/favorite nightclub this summer. Check out the slamin THIS/Is remix as well.


St. Etienne - Method Of Modern Love

Easy breezy, shimmery disco-pop. Possibly the musical lovechild of Love At First Sight and Heaven Is A Place on Earth. The Kola Boy and Richard X turn in nice variations on this song.


The Virgins - Rich Girls

An irresistibly catchy, sexy, laid back, up-tempo jam. Crank up this song while you're at a pool party in the Hamptons sipping a belini. Practically hand-written for shows like Bravo's NYC Prep, MTV's The Hills and of course, Paris Hilton's My New BFF. Except lacking the icky douche-factor.

LMFAO - La La La

Electro-tinged hip hop with a Kanye West feel. This has summer jam written all over it, but perhaps the success of I'm In Miami Trick has delays this single from catching on. The perfect mid-tempo soundtrack to a hot, slightly buzzed, weekend afternoon.

Pure catchy pop, a 2009 resurrection of Savage Garden (cue teenage girl screams). The amazing Russ Chimes remix adds a much-needed edginess to this song.
