It’s summer time!
It’s my favorite time of the year for many, many reasons, including the lack of school, sleeping in until whenever, working a job to finally have some money, and pool parties with all of my friends.
My first pool party was when I was in fifth grade. My dog had just had puppies, so after we all swam for hours, we played with the puppies and ate hamburgers. And of course we listened to music. Granted, it was not the best music ever, but I was a huge fan of Baha Men, Vitamic C, Destiny’s Child, and ‘NSync.
Now that I’m older, my taste in music has developed, or at least I like to think it has, but my love for pool parties has not changed at all. If you plan on having a pool party of your own, here are some of the most popular tunes, according to iTunes, to crank on your iPod this summer.
1. California Gurls – Katy Perry with Snoop Dogg
2. Airplanes – B.o.B. with Hayley Williams
3. OMG – Usher with will.I.am
4. Billionaire- Travie McCoy with Bruno Mars
5. Not Afraid – Eminem
6. Your Love is my Drug – Ke$ha
7. Alejadro – Lady GaGa
8. Rock that Body – Black Eyed Peas
9. Never Say Never – Justin Bieber with Jaden Smith
10. Bulletproof – La Roux
11. Break Your Heart – Taio Cruz and Ludacris
12. My First Kiss – 3OH!3

Remember these tips to make the most of your time by the pool: Use sunscreen, drink plenty of water, enjoy the tunes, and hope your secret collection of Aaron Carter doesn’t come up on shuffle!
