She & Him – “In the Sun”
With its quick rhythm and cheery piano, this is the perfect vehicle for the dreamy voiced (and all around dreamy) Zooey Deschanel. Check out the video. Nice choreography… nice ascot.
Caribou – “Sun”
I don’t think I’m the first one to draw Daft Punk comparisons with this one. Well, it should be obvious from the first second. That is in no way a bad thing. Mr. Snaith is on top of his game; every second is wonderful.
Soundgarden – “Black Hole Sun”
Ok, so a little less cheery than some other “sun” songs but optimistic in its own way. The guitar riffery is legendary and if you’re into grunge or ever were you already know why, but if not, no time like the present.
The Doors – “Waiting for the Sun”
An underrated Doors classic that really scores a big win with the loud/soft dynamic, yet it’s the subtle guitar parts and shimmering organ that really set the mood and allow Jim Morrison to get his Mojo working.
