Just the sound of his voice screams sexy. I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't help but swoon when his sultry songs come on.

3. Hot Fun in the Summertime - Sly and the Family Stone

An oldie, but goodie guaranteed to put a smile on your face while reminiscing about summer love.

4. In the Summertime - Mungo Jerry

If this video came out today, it would definitely go viral.


5. Wouldn't it Be Nice? - The Beach Boys

What would summer be without at least one Beach Boys love song?
